Transcript NOW group to raise funds for woman who sold baby . By CATHERINE KERB Pmt Reporter ^ A local feminist organization has taken up the cause of a Houston woman accused of selling her baby last week, saying she is a victim of a "sexist society." The Bay Area chapter of the National Organization for Women has started a fund drive to raise money for Susie Factor, 23, who was arrested and charged on March 11 with selling her 4-day-old baby, Tiffany, to undercover po-: lice fttficers. "I believe she's a victim of a sexist society that tells women that they are suposed to grow up and have babies and that's with the understanding that they will have a man provide for them royally and handsomely," said Anita Marcos, president of the NOW chapter. "If a woman' doesn't have that kind of luck, where does she go and where does she turn? "Basically she has been a victim of the system that has failed her. This woman had an eighth- grade education and no means for supporting herself. She had a ctjjd. She was pregnant and she chose to keep the child like so many people think is the thing to do." The father of the child refused r to accept responsibility for the child, Marcos said. When she was unable to work in the last month of her pregnancy, Marcos said, Factor was fired. She fell behind in her rent and realized she would not be able to care for the unborn child. Factor maintains she wasn't trying to sell her child, but was looking out for the best interests of Tiffany. Factor said she wanted a financially secure course to adopt her and thought the man who said he worked at NASA and the woman who said she owned a photography studio fit the bill. The man and woman were actually officers with the Houston Police Department's juvenile division. Factor said the $500 she asked for was to pay for rent and utilities so she and her 2-year-old daughter could live. If Factor had given her infant daughter away without asking for $500 in return, she would not have been in trouble with the low, Houston police and state offices say.
