Chinese Obstetrician Nabbed in Baby Sales

Ms. Wang chose the hospital because her father-in-law was an old classmate of Zhang. When Zhang persuaded the family to give up the babies, they trusted this old friend and later gave Zhang 55 pounds of wheat flour and a big bag of bread to thank her.

The state news agency Xinhua reported that the police have rescued the twin girls.

China's National Health and Family Planning Commission has called for severe punishment for those involved in the scheme. The Commission urged the Shaanxi provincial health department to manage its medical system more strictly and strengthen ethics training for medical personnel.

Dong Shanshan's family confirmed their baby's identity through DNA testing. In a highly emotional scene, police returned the baby to his parents. Twenty days after her baby was born and abducted, Dong Shanshan finally cradled him and burst into tears, as her husband knelt in gratitude to the police. He told the Chinese media that he plans to sue the hospital.
