Current trends in slavery (related to Corporate Uploads)

I ran across:
  "China's stolen wives", U.S. News, 10/12/98

dealing with the problem of women purchased to make babies
in China due to the stunning (IMO) male:female ration of
120 or 130 to 100.

Interesting in comparing this with Robin's strategy for getting
corporate uploads. Uploads solves some interesting economic
and productivity problems but it doesn't solve the apparently
very real problem of people who still desire "physical" children.

The gap between our perspective of making copies of ourselves
and intermingling them and the individuals in China who are
buying baby making machines is rather stunning.
