Baby-Stealing Doc Sentenced to Die

A Chinese doctor has been sentenced to death after being found guilty of abducting and selling seven babies in Fuping County, in the Shaanxi province of China. Zhang Shuxia was a doctor at the Fuping Maternal and Child Healthcare Hospital, where she would tell parents their newborns had serious illnesses and persuaded them to give up the babies, which she then sold to child traffickers. Zhang’s death sentence is suspended for two years while officials look into 50 related cases.
