Hospital Accused of Selling Black Babies
Last month, a Missouri woman was reunited with her daughter after being told her baby died at birth 50 years ago. Since that story broke, more than 100 women who gave birth at the Homer G. Phillips Hospital in St Louis back in the 1950s and 1960s and was told their children also passed, began to wonder if their children are alive, too. Bombshell tonight! The attorney representing the woman who was reunited with her daughter is alleging the hospital was in the business of selling babies. "We have found and we have discerned that in the 50s and 60s there was the availability on the market of infant black children," attorney Al Watkins said. "Pay for play. Cash on delivery. You want a baby? Get some money." The attorney is now petitioning the court unseal adoption records from hospital. He believes hospital staff and personnel, lawyers and possibly the courts were complicit in baby stealing and selling scheme. “Someone knows something and they’re not talking," he says.
