Websites Promote U.S. Citizenship For Korean Babies Via Guam

(Pacific Daily News)

A Taiwanese-born doctor, now naturalised U.S. citizen in Guam says he has been approached by tour agents about bringing in pregnant South Korean's to have babies born on Guam, reports the Pacific Daily News.

The agents are using two web sites -- www.americanbaby.co.kr and www.guambaby.com -- to lure the Korean mothers.

Dr. Thomas Shieh, an obstetrician and gynecologist, said he was first contacted four years ago and then again this summer but turned them down.

The site www.americanbaby.co.kr outlines a step-by-step process for expectant moms: (1) Get prenatal care in South Korea; (2) Give birth at Guam Memorial Hospital;(3) Get a passport and Social Security number in Guam within a week after birth; and (4) Go back to Korea in two to three weeks.
