After being accused of having corrupt adoption practices, Vietnam is cutting their child bearing ties with America.

An Associated Press article wrote about the report from the U.S. Embassy in Hanoi. To see what it said,

The report lists cases in which infants were sold or birth mothers were pressured to give up their babies. In some other cases it describes brokers going to villages in search for babies who could be possibly put up for adoption.

It also says some American adoption agencies have been paying orphanage directors for referrals, and some others have bribed orphanage officials by taking them on shopping sprees and junkets to the United States in return for a flow of babies.

The existing agreement expires in September so Vietnam will no longer accept applications from American couples as of July 1st. Adoptions already in progress will not be affected.
