The Chinese police has 75 people arrested for illegally determining the sex of unborn babies.

At least three hundred people were involved in the company, writes BBC News.

The service is aimed at parents who would like a little boy wanted. Blood samples were sent to hong Kong to work there then to be investigated. Geslachtstesten are a few exceptions, is banned in China.

Parents from across the country were able to use the services of the illegal business. In total, according to the authorities, some 27 million euros earned on the test. Despite campaigns by the government, many Chinese still prefer a boy than a girl as a child.

A year ago, China put an end to the eenkindpolitiek. This should be especially the balance back between the number of men and women in the country.

Currently, there are 113 boys born for every hundred girls. Researchers warn that it is still years before the numbers are again fairly equal.
