Sounds crazy, but abandoned babies are being given out as prizes on a controversial prime-time game show in Pakistan. What do you think about this baby giveaway? http://on.cnn.com/13X1BZX
(Type: link | Published: 2013-07-30T19:00:01+0000)
[danita jackson] - i have a six year old and a sixteen year old they can give out as prizes! (just joking before someone has a stroke!)
[francheska rivera] - It is better than having those babies grow up homeless and loveless. At least they are being given a home with people who genuinely want children.
[sobia nomani] - This is not a game show and these children aren't being handed out as Halloween candy. Get your facts straight CNN. This program is a special religious program airing during the month of Ramadan. These babies are abandoned, most times left in garbage cans waiting to be eaten up by stray cats and dogs. They are handed over to couples that either have no children of their own and so desperately are in need OR couples that for the sake of saving a helpless child, raise them as their own. Please try to gather all TRUE facts and related info before posting it as though this is a "game show giveaway".
[amaris mandujano] - What may sound crazy to some, is a blessing to others.
[saimah arshad] - omg. to the fools who just read the title of the article without actually watching the video or reading the article. stop talking out of your butts. they didn't randomly give away babies..couples were pre-screened. it was just live on the show as a surprise to the couple. comprehension 101.
[sean tudor] - The family was screened and had already been registered and interviewed by the agency 6 times. They were on a waiting list. They were merely given the babies on the show as a surprise. Quit sensationalizing the story.
[max zeygelshefer] - Who are we to judge? We have Honey Boo Boo, the Kardashians, the Real Housewives, Dance Moms, Jersey Shore...
[melanie braddy saliba] - Anyone would know the people who receive the babies have already been vetted as meeting the requirements for adoption. Awareness of the plight of abandoned children is a good thing. Ignorant people will gladly believe that babies are just given away on an Islamic countries television show to a random audience member. Please people, try to activate any brain cell you have in your brains. In the US, when safe drop spots for unwanted children were created and publicized, the vast majority of our population was not aware that such abandonment existed here in the US.
[christina a. lumpkins] - I hate how CNN makes it seem like the babies are being given out during a game show. This is a religious setting, with couples who aren't able to have children. Why not give the children to a family that wants them rather than the child be without and homeless. CNN should be ashamed of this sensationalized reporting. Starting to lose trust in CNN's once famed journalism. Now, they are no different than TMZ.
[elona guga] - For sure they will be in a better place than being with no family. I saw the video, and those new parents are so happy to have a child. So, its good for both parts :)
[jay knickerbocker] - Well we have reality shows about having 7 baby daddy per one mom... So we are not to far behind
[aelia ahmed] - Game show??? Cnn is insane!!The babies r not presents.. The abandoned babies r given to da childless couples !! Get Ur facts right CNN!!!!
[neo nche] - I really don't care how the babies are being given out as long as they're placed in loving homes that's all :-)
[amanda dawn leloup] - Did you people even watch it? The couples are already going through a process to get a baby with a legit company and they did it on the show to bring awareness to abandoned babies and try to find more homes for these children. If the baby goes to a good home (and the screened them first) who are we to judge how they went about it?
[karyn kendrick] - Any abandoned child that can be given to a loving couple who wants a baby but isn't able to have children should be able to raise a child. It's better than the child being left on the street to die.
[kathleen rush] - Sounds like a dream come true for a molester United nations should step in
[ivanna yavorenko] - Parenthood is not a game. I guess we should teach that to all our teenage mothers here before we get upset at the rest of the world.
[lisa mcdaniel] - THEY ARE HUMANS - not PRIZES - this is insane
[hafiz usman ahmad malik] - Norani is right....

[danielle downing grunke] - You shouldn't have to pay to adopt a child ...So many children need homes . This was a nice thing what he did :')
[lona miller-carr] - someone needs to take care of the babies. i hope the people who win them want them! i'll take one!!! ;)
[kerri o'connell-butes] - Your headline is deceiving in a negative way. They are giving out prizes and making dreams come true for people who win. One of the gifts were to a childless couple who have been wanting a child for years and years. They did a background check etc.... They have given away cars, trips, homes and paid for kids college. Shame on you for making people think the worst.
[di shi] - My husband and I want to adopt, but cannot afford the adoption fees right now. I would go on that game show in a heartbeat.
[trinetta wright] - As long as the "winners" been prescreened and interviewed..
[tammy canning denman-rutar] - If someone is unable or unwilling to care for a child.....why not? There are too many unwanted children in the world and alot of people have love to give them.......just something to think about. I hope they do back ground checks on the perspective new parents.
[ricardo rodriguez] - why should we care, its not in America. hope the states doesnt decide to start war over this... -__-
[crystal doyle restrepo] - Goodness, Did any of you read the article or watch the video before commenting??? I pray that these babies are finally in welcoming hands and can be raised in great families!!! What a awesome thing to do!! Haters read first!!
[michelle sasscer] - I would like to point out how horribly crass the anchorman man at the end of this piece when it aired earlier today. I believe Mr. Holmes's words were "and it isn't even cute". He was describing a visibly ill, abandoned two week old infant. CNN shame on you!
[michael carter] - Giving babies away like puppies ? I hope they don't treat them like dogs.
[hafiz usman ahmad malik] - Abandones babies are giving to those who r childless babies...as this news came from pakistan , thats why CNN( eu media) taking it as Negative, if it were came from US, UK, or other country? Might it b a noble act
[adam goudreau] - If the contestants are screened as 'decent' than what's the problem... Better than being eaten alive by bugs and rodents in a dumpster.
At least they have a chance. Sure is better than the loops and hurdles wanting parents have to go through
[hinaa noor] - I think it is not a bad idea. Better than homeless, abandoned babies with horrible lives... They might get good parents.
[kiaira riggins] - If you actually watched the video and understand why they were giving away items you'd know this was a BLESSING! Idiots
[amy morgan wells] - Did anyone actually watch or read the article? Yes, poor taste, but these families were in the process of becoming a baby's guardian. I recall an episode of 20/20 not long ago where they made it a near game show on which family the birth mother would pick. At one point the family not chosen is told that there is a waiting child for them too and handed a toddler. THIS WAS BARBARA WALTERS! Don't say its Islam, don't say its Pakistan, its exploitive for sure, but it happens in America too! I am so sick of blatant racist comments.
[jamie schwacke mcintosh] - Whoever gets my house the cleanest can have one of mine...Lol. J/K
[dave stout] - good idea better then not providing for a child
[hazel brooklyn brit wellington] - Better than having to pay the $60-100K to adopt here..
[paulette casey] - Its not a great idea. No telling what type of people are getting there hands on them.
[hector gallegos] - Ill take two for income tax purposes please.
[jim moody] - In America we have highly-rated game shows where single folks compete for a spouse, thereby creating a family. How different is this from that? Offering human life and human love as some sort of prize at the end of a competition is wrong and devalues the idea of family. We need to look at our own country before we start judging others.
[karen allen barbee] - When I first read this I was shocked, but realized after reading it that these babies wouldn't have had a chance of any type of life without this program. Now not only do they have a chance to life but a chance to thrive with a family.
[caryn mcdaniel broomby] - So families are being screened and paying THOUSANDS of dollars to get babies from Africa, when they could just WIN one in Pakistan??
[ranya el sadawy] - Read the article people, it says the parents were prescanned by the proper agencies and will have to go through all the legal procedures in court to be recognized as proper guardians. They just didn't know they were gonna get the child they asked for on the game show. It was a special moment for them so stop all the judging you narrow minded insane people.
[jessica mummert] - Once again, a misleading post by CNN. Watch the video, everyone. It's not as bad as the Facebook post makes it sound.
[sherry m jackson] - Abandoned babies DESERVE homes. Childless couples DESERVE to parent. It is fulfilling a need for both no matter how it happens. I say keep connecting the two. Bittersweet Story.
[michele kivisto bertolini] - They screen the childless couple prior to handing over a baby that was abandoned which may have died a cruel death in the streets or in a garbage can. USA doesn't understand it but if it works for Pakistan why not!
[marina lambert farook] - Sensationalist headline. The couple has been screened already for adoption, this is just a surprise way of doing it, as a happy "gift". I think it's nice actually.
[megan brunner janas] - Wow! I have very mixed feelings about this... On one hand I get the message of let's give these children a home... But winning a kid on a game show is in very poor taste. While a child is your ultimate prized possession, a child is not a prize to be won...
[nelly neller] - Pretty Innovative. As long as the baby is given to a good family, better than being abandoned in the streets.
[martha zhagui-granados] - Unbelievable !! ...
CNN: Sounds crazy, but abandoned babies are being given out as prizes on a controversial prime-time - 50th Comments
[renee werner laws] - Funny, the outrage at this from folks who are ok with murdering their own flesh and blood if it's "inconvenient".
[the human rights and scientific honesty initiative, university of virginia] - We violently kill over 1.2 million of our own babies a year in the United States.
Abortion is illegal in Pakistan. They are far nicer to their children than we are to ours.
[lynn candy] - If it is the only way to get them homes so be. It is better then growing up in the streets. Brazil and many other places should try it, poor little innocent babies.....God bless them.
[trudy jahnke] - horrible, this is how these people are non civilized
[hafiz usman ahmad malik] - It is not a Game Show... CNN plz get on fact...its a religious programe on Ramadan...where childless couples come and they r verrified and than given a abondaned babies
[david braund] - well if they end up at a good home...
[david tormey] - interestin to know are all these children born female, like this country doesnt seem to value any form of the female society in any respect, except, that is, for the abuse of them!!
[theresa guzman] - Well if u see all the red tape willing and able parents that have the means and so much desire to be parents have to go through here in the U.S just to get the wheels going by the time you finally get the childs your broke and the child is about to turn 21!!!!
[jo hausman] - Give me one of those babies. I will raise it. I had no idea that babies were being abandoned there.
[kat tilley] - I hear so many couples say they couldn't adopt because the child "wouldn't REALLY be theirs" as if genetics defines love. Suppose this gets couples more excited about the prospect of adopting than months of paperwork processing does for the rest of us. They're ending up in happy homes, and that's what matters!
[ana luisa valdez] - I WANT A COUPLE OF THEM! THEY WILL HAVE A HOME AND LOVE WITH ME!!!IF TEY ARE ORPHANS OR ABANDONED ,GIVE THEM TO PPL THAT LOVE THEM!!!!
[malou reich] - You should watch it first before commenting
[zain syed] - Cnn just want to makes things dramatic.... its not what they say it is... they interviewed , checked their background and everything before giving away to the family... its better to give away kids to some good families than let them live on charities...
[carol ninehan morales] - Horrible, it is a child not a prize.
[terrie elizabeth] - what is even more shocking is that there is such an abundance of these poor abandoned babies that they even exist to be given away. Let me guess, all girls, right? how many childless couples here in the US would LOVE to have one of them.
[tammy decoste] - hmmm. Although I agree with screened childless couples receiving an unwanted baby, I don't like the way it's being handled. Televised on a game show? Really? Perhaps a documentary about abandoned children and matching them up with these childless couples would be better?
[brian wilson] - This another one of those times when you ask yourself "What has the world come to?
[loreto calderón] - I think it's a pedophiles dream come true. Horrible idea. I hope they are shut down. They are humans not puppies.
[rachel bui] - No babies are not trophies but if it saves them from being dumpster babies to a good home then keep it up!
[marshall furr] - what's wrong with this world, its sad to hear this
[jeff shein] - great idea. Make sure they give away diapers, formula, food, clothing, love, toys, an education, money for college, a car, and a couple of hundred thousand dollars to raise them.
[joseph bardaville] - I will take two, thank you.
[natasha thompson] - Obviously you people didn't read the article...
[jeffery robinson] - good God man ... just when I thought I had heard it all ...
[shyanna lyons] - I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.
[donnell mrfantastic williams] - let me think... in the U.S. we have children who go to the state..and when ppl try to adopt children..they get charged a arm and a leg..so most dont... but our taxes go up to support the children... i say give kids to a good home...the game show thing is kinda weird., but if they go to a good home instead of prostitution or a army...i say go ahead.... this only seems strange cause we live in america.....but anyone from overseas will tell you about child trafficing.........to each is own.... let them do whatever works......its for the children
[joellen loring jamieson] - The title is misleading so I suggest people watch the video before they jump to any conclusions. I think it's wonderful, actually. It breaks my heart that they find babies in garbage bins. So sad.
[carlos alberto olmo] - If the recipients can't have children yes!
[robin kish-miller] - i want one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! only legally, not sure about this method...
[kim fregia] - I think we should do it here. We have plenty of unwanted babies.
[dreya robinson-sharp] - I read the article and the parents have been Veted. They just made it more exciting and more public. These babies are abandoned in the street, unwanted. They dont have "adoption" in Pakistan you become a guardian of that child and these people want a child.
[mike cafora] - It's good as long as they aren't giving one to me.
[kila tucker curry] - Nothing surprises me anymore.
[jean c thorne] - if the child gets a decent home it has to be better than being thrown in the dumpster
[christopher miller] - dont those people eat their babies or is that the Chinese?
[krista parker] - I think that's actually pretty awesome. The person on the show has to know what their prize will be...so hopefully these are people that really want kids. I just hope they do like background check the contestants. It's a great way to address the orphan problem.
[tim lewis] - How low can people go? Apparently not far enough! Disgusting! WTF is wrong with people anyway?
[marguerite ciofani] - omg what warped values to allow this
[david rojas] - At least someone will be willing to take care of them and love them
[stefanie greenhalgh margerison] - Can I pick door number two instead? Lol
[sandra dziedziula] - crazy is not even CLOSE to the words that should be used on this. as brian Wilson might say, "I guess I just wasn't made for these times..."
[toni magnotta amato] - I don't know what to say...
[glenn michael] - i guess its better than them being left to die
[shawn s. clark] - Compared to the corruption in our society... Meh.
[linda j. mccarty] - This is horrible. Not something to joke about.
[hafiz usman ahmad malik] - I request all of u ,, go to CNN website and watch video about this programe its really awsm
[rachael swanic] - What a time to live in
[young daty] - oh watt, he goin 2 condition sick so far!
[jane francis] - At least it's better than taking a gun into schools and shooting kids. After reading the article it's not a bad concept after all
[malicia griffith] - I guess that says a lot about Pakistan. Do they have a screening process for people who are going to be taking the babies home? That country is scary enough and think they are handing out babies to random people is just crazy.
CNN: Sounds crazy, but abandoned babies are being given out as prizes on a controversial prime-time - 100th Comments
[jonathan c. booth] - This is inhuman? At least they go to families who want them but can't have them. Just because they aren't American doesn't make them savages. Feelings are feelings, and yours can get hurt just like theirs. I bet a lot of you call yourselves Christians, yet wwjd? Probably shake his head at you and say, "forgive them father, for they know not what they do!"
[chris hall] - Seems like a win/win to me; who cares the format in which it happens an unwanted baby was provided to people who wanted a baby. Makes good TV.
[faye ray goudreau] - wow sad but better than being ....snuffed or left to die...as I age I'm so dissapointed in this world. Hard to believe it's 2013.
[theresa guzman] - I would gladly take an abandoned baby and raise as my own....
[georgette whitaker] - You have a family that wants a child to love. You have a child that has been abandoned. The family has been interviewed several times. Pakistan has 1000 up on 1000 of abandoned children. I think this is wonderful. And yes it does bring the issue of children to the fore front. Maybe now they can come up with more ways to find homes for others
[lisa marie hawk] - I would take one in a quick minute!
[david tormey] - unbelievable!!!! is ther no value on a childs life anymore, jesus before we know it, it will be the jackpot in the bingo halls, this world has gone totally mad
[shirley fiddaman] - Anyone heard of contraception????
[monique lafourche delaney] - Better then being mauled by animals in a dumpster
[jo ann zahra] - Dont think the babies should be a prime-time game show prize. I am sure there are plenty of folks who would be more than happy to have one of the abandoned babies. Myself included.
[diane berry puente] - I find this disturbing, but certainly not more disturbing that murdering a baby in the womb...or any of the other legalized abortion tactics.
[joseph griffin] - I hear the game show is "The Price is Right"
[marilyn callan] - Hopefully these people will care for them and not dump them
[langston medalsman] - How can they push a baby on someone? What if the person doesn't want a baby or the responsibility, then what? Who is to say you would be giving the baby to a good parent, anyway? I can understand wanting to give these orphaned kids a home but doing it through a game show is not the way to do it.
[shahada elgamil] - If these babies are being abo don and our now being given a home, I say that pretty wonderful! Instead of being in horrible foster care or on the streets they will have a home
[gina randall] - I bet pedofiles are the first in line to play the game. This is a bad idea.
[melisa gutierrez] - Wonder if the people getting these babies are being investigated at all first. I myself doubt it.
[c anita t revan] - Maybe more countries should Considered this, less orphanages, less abuse, rape and unwanted kids in a government system that's over flowing, over worked, and underpaid....just a thought.
[bill slocum] - American's and other Westerners will NEVER understand the way they think and they will never accept our way of thinking. Quit trying.
[heather evans-hood] - Ill take one....
[nina crawford] - What's the difference of forever being in foster care to living in an orphanage for the eest of your life? Either way, the child is not living a "normal" life. Plus, we act like females in this country are treated as equally as our men. It's always quick to look at others' customs and think that the ones practiced by ourselves are golden. Let's focus in the thousands of countless children that are left parentless, homeless, starving, uneducated and set on perpetual cycles of poverty before we start judging others' practices.
[james lair] - Coming to America. lol
[leydi anciano] - i think thats great i mean they will be a prized possession to parents who want to raise them as theirs. as long as they aren't giving them to someone who is an abuser or a rapist or something.
[sandra antonella parodi] - Nicolás Barnechea
[soma mounie syed] - First i was shocked. But reading the article entirely made me happy... it is good!
[jeffrey knight] - Does Pakistani TV have "sweeps months" to drag in viewers like here in the U.S.? If there are massive numbers of abandoned babies there, an episode of the show might resemble Oprah's 2007 episode in which every studio audience member got a car...but how would it sound? "You get a baby...and you get a baby..." Yeah.
[virginia m. gibb] - That's just ethically and morally wrong. How would I feel after growing up and finding out I was given away on a game show? Like Nothing. That's what. That's terrible. I am sure however that the FCC would never allow that on American TV. Although you never know with the reality garbage that exists now in this country.
[jimmy betts] - As long as those who are receiving the babies have been vetted.... I guess it seems okay.....otherwise they would be left in an adoption agency ....:)
[kimberly roy barner] - I don't have time to worry about what a third world country like Pakistan is doing. We have our own things to worry about here in the USA.
[mary anne hadden barnes] - It was so shocking to read at first, but then I think it made sense when I read the article. The parents were pre-vetted and really wanted a child and so many babies have been abandoned that it is great if you can find all the innocents loving homes. Hopefully, the show will increase awareness of the need to find homes for these precious babies
[macquoria hale] - This is sickening smh
[robert williams] - They can do what they want in their country
[bob beaudreault] - These babys are pulled out of trash bins and gutters. At least it's a chance for a decent life
[patricia pierron-hebert] - and they talk about how the US has no morals????
[ma'lik handley] - It's Pakistan worry about America
[dora manuel warren] - Absolutely awful!
[benazir zakir] - I hope the babies get good parents
It is better to be in a home then roaming on streets.
[ritchie brock] - How do they know they are not giving the babies over to a psychopath or over to human trafficking. This is not the way to give these angels a good home.
[rhonda benz] - It sounds like they are thinking of what the children need, the parents are checked out, etc. If it works for them and the children are loved and cared for...good for them !
[laura de gaetano] - If the babies are abandoned and this will get them to a good, loving home. Then go for it.
[matthew bartlett] - Not a good idea.
[laina vanbuskirk] - I swear I hope this is a joke I cannot believe people abandon their children but even more so I cannot believe a gameshow would give children a way to God knows who just because they picked a prize this world is losing its mind
[vicky peglidou-barney] - Even "Genuinely" given to people that care and wand to adopt a child; Still. No human being wands to be given away as prize on a game show? :'( My hart aches for this unfortunate children!
[leanne neale] - Been given as prizes thats disgusting this is a human being. To be abandon is bad enough but given them away as prizes sickens me what happen to adoptions
[joel meislin] - Shawn Sponable. Didn't billy win on of these 29 years ago?
[dennis walker] - What ever happened to a washer dryer?
[donna lee] - I saw the news story and the potential parents are vetted. The new parents were so happy too. Awesomeness. the states should do the same.
[dorna cormier-crean] - whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaatt?? And what creeps may be getting these babies for who knows what.... this is a travesty.
[melissa r. clark] - And then they are probably raised to become sex slaves. It's really the only way females are viewed by some cultures.
[crystal rider] - The couples were prescreened several times, and qualified for the adoption. I say Congrats on your beautiful new baby~
CNN: Sounds crazy, but abandoned babies are being given out as prizes on a controversial prime-time - 150th Comments
[joe blowe] - I suppose ABC will negotiate for the rights to do an American version....
[tytu pawkar inoñán] - Many a baby giveaway in the United States too, so ¿What do you thinking about?
[candy callahan hayes] - Since they're checked out like regular adoptive parents who have to have fundraisers and take out 2nd mortgages just to adopt a child.. why not!?!?
[surina-marie brewer] - The article says they already had applied for a baby it was a surprise and something they wanted. As long as this baby get a home and they are happy go for it.
[tee chheang] - Khmer rogue slaughter millions of people , I'm glad they all got killed . If giving away babies gives the baby life's a better chance to succeed ,then it's ok.
[karalyn eckerle] - Amazes me that the folks who scream all babies should be born --- that there are plenty of good homes for them --- none of those folks are ever seen in line to adopt those babies. I do NOT support abortion as a means of birth control. But I'm sorry -- there are NOT enough good homes available for these babies as these folks want us to believe.
[searetha kinyon] - If the people of that country are okay with it, then who am I to judge or condemn?
[pat mcatee] - If they get into the right hands fine.
[steve wells] - Has anyone told Madonna or Angelina Jolie about this?
[joseph campbell] - Better than aborting them in planned parenthood aka "planned murder" facilities.
[pascal jean] - maybe it isn't so bad when you consider where they find the babies in garbage cans abandoned maybe they could've done it a different way not a tv show but some people just put baby in a basket and let it flow on a river so just think about it. sounded crazy when i read still crazy maybe not on a tv show
[william flores] - If you get the prize right you get a Baby!!!! =,D Jk Jk as long they a good family it's ok...
[abubakar iliyasu] - Cnn. May god bless u people 4 saving the child live
[luci n. shaw] - I'd rather be given away as a prize than be abandoned. At least a prize denotes value!
[shrunks sangco] - how about my mom-in law?
[william flores] - Babies as prizes? So instead of being handed on to them easily they have to compete for them? That's terrible!
[christopher dwight s. yett] - I am on my way to Pakistan aka "Pak a Baby!"
[andrea akuffo] - I think it is a great idea as long as these people are being evaluated.. Does it make sense to just put the child in "harms way" Foster Parenting is no differnt, but at least these people go through different trainings and what not...
[daniel gourley] - They are finding kids homes and vetting the parents. What is wrong with that???
[nworgu chukwuma.] - Very dehumanizing.
[little stevie c] - Shot at least they give them away and give them a shot. We in America just warehouse them like animals in a zoo.
[brandon bell] - Hahahaha. Adam Varnell
[natalie christine] - "Sounds crazy" -- It IS crazy! Poor little babies, oh my goodness.
[aelia ahmed] - CNN get Ur bloody facts right !!!!!
[deb schneider nyberg] - After the civil war, the orphan train went through rural areas and gave babies and children to families.
[ashley moriarity] - Watch the video people. They didn't just find a couple on the streets and hand them a baby. The couple was already registered with the agency and had 4-5 meetings with them already. They just didn't know they would be given the baby at the time on the show.
[xavier mathman willis] - Brad and Angelina aren't contestants?
[linda mortensen] - Bet they only want boys.
[rodney luke] - The bible does say that children are a gift from God. lol... Psalm 127:3-5
[ayodele tosin] - Y're some people complaining? would you prefer the babies to die on the strrets?
[joseph dillon] - For those that don't take the time to read. ""We didn't just give the baby away. We have our own vetting procedure. This couple was already registered with us and had four or five sessions with us."
[adri nieto] - As long as they are wanted and will be loved, why not? Better than have them starve to death.
[chris tasior] - Meanwhile in Pakistan, babies are given away
[beverly holk] - Doesn't seem like the right way to go about it but in a country like that . . . worse things could be happening to these babies.
[sandy kitzinger] - Seriously??? A child as a trophy/price? Giving a child to parents....what makes you think that they don't drop it off at the next dump or abuse that child? This should not br allowed...
I am all about babies having a second chance but a child as a grant-price...just plain stupid!!!!
[nicholas alan potter] - But I'm sure they get better parents than the ones they had that have them up so who is loosing here...
[jackie riquelme] - Wow. At least they are getting a home??? Not sure
[terrilyn r. woodfin] - I am in stunned silence.
[claudette o'donnell] - Doesn't surprise me.
[hazel shusterman] - Horrifying ! Any psycho or pedophile could gain access to those defenseless infants. Totally irresponsible.
[ann stenbak cole] - I don't agree with this; however, I hope the couples are being screened before just giving the babies to themo..who knows who these babies will be given to?
[patric kithuku] - Give mi one, i like babis!
[haaj ef] - This must be a joke..... human life shouldn't be treated as a prize
[jennifer jolin-stebbins] - You wouldn't play the game if you didn't want the baby....I say go for it!
[rick swartz] - That's so sick, I don't even have the words to describe how awful, I think this is. What is our world coming to?
[mike van den abbeel] - Proof we will never be able to impose on them our values, bring all troops home now and end aid to the middle east.
[ugochi anastasiagold ogada] - Dats right and wrong depending on how one views it!
[mel j. ferriera] - "They give away puppies so why not"????! What a dumb comparison to make.

[shannon whitaker] - can I get on this show? I cannot have children due to having a hysterectomy 2 yrs ago at age 27 and would love to have a baby but cannot afford a domestic adoption. I would be so good to one of these beautiful babies.

[john nyandika] - For a world that hates babies until it aborts them, this show is hardly barbaric. "The baby girls given away on the show were found by an NGO, the Chhipa Welfare Association, which says it receives up to 15 abandoned babies a month. "Our team finds babies abandoned on the street, in garbage bins -- some of them dead others mauled by animals. So why not ensure the baby is kept alive and gets a good home?" said Ramzan Chhipa, who runs the organization. "We didn't just give the baby away. We have our own vetting procedure. This couple was already registered with us and had four or five sessions with us."
[lisa mello] - Lets hope they aren't going to homes that pervs live in
[dotty dot] - Well this is creativity :) who would have thought of helping abandoned children out this way.
[rene hernandez] - Don't judge other cultures. Americans abort countless fetuses every year. Just imagine what they think of us.
[iqra mughal] - Its really awful but atleast they are not killing these angels with the drone strikes....
[javier muñoz] - everyone look under your seats..... That's right! You get a Baby! and You get a baby and you get a baby!!!...... ;)
[robin kamensek] - People there don't adopt, so as long as the couples have been cleared, it's a great way to get people to adopt. They have a very low population that adopts, and this man makes it something that maybe many more couples will do. If you watch the video, the prospective parents have gone through the vetting proses. They aren't just handing babies out like candy.
[sean 'scotty' paton] - Whatever at least the kids are getting parents.
