I don't even know where to start with this one, the title alone is enough to make you shake your head in disgust, but it seems that the thought of "you shouldn't do this" didn't enter the mind of a young woman in the US, who was recently arrested for trying to sell her children on Facebook.

Misty VanHorn is a 22 year old mother of two from Sallisaw in Oklahoma. After being struck short for money she decided it would be a good idea to sell her children for the strange figure of $4000. She offered her 10 month old baby girl for $1000 but said that you could take the set (both children) for the deal price of $4000. You had to arrange pickup, delivery and yet even after the madness of all of this, someone had actually put in an offer!

It is said that Ms VanHorn was trying to raise cash to bail her boyfriend from jail, who was locked up with a bond of $1000. It is good to see the justice system working its way on this one for obvious reasons and VanHorn has been locked up with a bond of $40,000 while the children have been taken into care.
