More than 6,000 Korean babies are adopted by Western couples through a system administered by the Korean government. While many social workers question the morality of legal adoptions schemes, all condemn illegal schemes. In such countries as Chile, Argentina and Paraguay, illicit baby traffickers are doing a brisk trade. In Chile a mother is paid $1,000 for her baby which is then sold for 15 times that amount. In Argentina, where 90% of the population is of European descent, blue-eyed, blond-haired babies are being sold for as much as $20,000. Latin American officials estimate that from 200 to 700 infants are illegally exported from each of these countries a year. In Sri Lanka, baby farms located near tourist resorts are infamous. The proprietors search the island's hospitals for impoverished young women in the early stages of pregnancy, offering them good care, food and a modest $100 a month if they will live on the farms until they give birth and then give up their newborns. Some of the babies are sold directly to visiting foreign visitors and others are exported, at an average price of $1,000, to syndicates in Belgium and Sweden, which then sell them for as much as $8,000 each. Sri Lankan authorities estimate some 300 infants are illegally sold to Western couples a year. Middlemen in the Philippines search out pregnant women in the night clubs and honky-tonk bars near USA military bases in order to buy mixed-blood babies and then resell them to Western couples.
