Adoption from the "other" Korea

Senator Sam Brownback (R-Kansas) and Rep. Ed Royce (R-California) filed a bill last week, proposing to establish a pilot program for the eventual international adoption of orphaned North Korean children. There have been reports for years of children living on the streets, being abandoned, and starving in North Korea. North Korea has criticized South Korea for becoming a "baby export nation" although North Korea has plans to discontinue all international adoption programs by 2012.
