‘I have no other choice. If I were not blinded I wouldn’t have to do this,’ she said.

‘I am not selling them out, but giving them away. In return I only charge a bit for pregnancy fees.

‘I love babies. If I were capable, I definitely would bring them up. But I really can’t support them. I then find them good families to adopt them.’

Claiming that she has done nothing wrong, Du said: ‘I gave out babies to families which can’t give birth. They want babies and I helped them.’

She added: ‘Rich people give out money for a daughter’s wedding. Middle-class people earn money for a daughter’s marriage, and poor people sell sons and daughters.’
