Pawned Babies
Dec 8th, 2010 by niceyfemme

I’ve been sleeping late this past days and I somehow decided to sleep a little early last night. But then the teaser for GMA 7’s Reporter’s Notebook was shown and the topic really caught my attention; it’s about pawned babies.

Whoah! I haven’t heard about this before and had no idea this was happening. My life having the softest spot for babies decided that I was going to watch that program even when it will be shown very late, actually way past midnight.

I have heard about all kinds of scams, from debt settlement scams to housing scams but not this one. Again, the reason why they do it is because of poverty, of hunger. They have no choice. They pawn the baby for only three thousand pesos Php 3000. One woman lost her baby when the person with whom she pawned her baby left and moved. Must be heartbreaking.

I don’t know; it may be illegal but I don’t mind helping them. I don’t mind taking care of a baby and helping them too. I know how it feels to be so helpless and even desperate. You will really consider the things you usually wouldn’t even think about out of desperation.
