Post PNG women sell babies at market

In Papua New Guinea, there are calls for a nationwide campaign of awareness about unwanted pregnancy with reports two young women sold their babies at a market. In this case, the young mothers handed over their infants at the Kokopo market in East New Britain, because they were desperate for money to survive. And in Sydney, the discovery of a newborn baby in a shoebox has led to calls in Australia for hospitals to introduce so-called 'baby hatches.' The hatches are fitted to the outer walls of hospitals and are widespread in Germany, the United States and Japan. They allow women to abandon their babies anonymously but without endangering the life of the child.
