Umm, yes. If you visit that site, you'll notice that the stories are mostly about illegal organ sales--most of them have nothing to do with children, much less babies, much less "stolen" babies. Two of the stories, which are about the same incident, mention a five-year-old boy whom his grandmother allegedly attempted to sell for his organs, but he is neither a baby nor a stolen one. (Which, by the way, is not intended as a defense of his grandmother--the story is disgusting.)
