Chinese Doctor Found Guilty of Abducting and Selling Infants


A doctor in China was found guilty of abducting and selling seven babies to child traffickers.

Zhang Shuxia convinced parents that their newborn babies had serious diseases and should be given up, according to a BBC report.

Zhang has been sentenced to death, with a two year reprieve.

Suspended death sentences are normally commuted to life imprisonment in China.

Zhang sold seven babies to child traffickers between November 2011 and July 2013, including a pair of twins, a judgement posted on the Weinan Intermediate People’s Court’s verified microblog on Tuesday said.

Six of the babies were rescued, but one baby girl died.
