  1. The tricky part is that some parents offered their children at such a vulnerable time for a better life and education. That is the argument and basis of the judge’s consideration. Does it make it right? What was the hurry? The christians will not be sentenced, whatever happens. This is a show.

  2. This incident had started affecting aid from US in some ways, they have no choice. This lot were warned about the illegality before hand, but they did not care. The world is so quick to see it as a loving act since Haiti is needy.
