BeautifulPeople.com, a Danish Web site, which is famous for dating services it provides to good-looking people, has just set up a "beautiful baby" service for clients who want sperm or eggs from attractive donors.

BeautifulPeople.com's sperm and egg bank only receives donations from good-looking people. However, the "beautiful baby" service doesn't discriminate against ugly consumers of its services and is open to everyone.

The Web site was established in 2002 and already has more than 600,000 registered users from 190 countries and regions. It has also created more than 600 beautiful babies.

The service has aroused controversy on the Internet. Some people believe that longing for charm is the nature of human beings. However, some others are critical of it.
