Korea cracking down on Chinese “human flesh pills” made from … dead babies

posted at 9:22 pm on May 7, 2012 by Allahpundit

As horrendous as this is, I’m wondering if it could be even worse than advertised. China being China, who knows how many of the fetuses involved were voluntarily aborted. That’s what the whole Chen Guangcheng flap is about, remember: He’s a crusader against compulsory abortions and sterilization. Given the market for these capsules and the power of the Chinese state, it’s easy to imagine graft in which local officials force women who might otherwise carry to term to have the pregnancy terminated so that it can be, shall we say, harvested for raw materials.

You know what? After reading several stories about this, I’m not sure we’re talking exclusively about fetuses here.

South Korea has seized thousands of smuggled drug capsules filled with powdered flesh from dead babies, which some people believe can cure disease, officials said Monday.

The capsules were made in northeastern China from babies whose bodies were chopped into small pieces and dried on stoves before being turned into powder, the Korea Customs Service said.

Customs officials refused to say where the dead babies came from or who made the capsules, citing possible diplomatic friction with Beijing. Chinese officials ordered an investigation into the production of drugs made from dead fetuses or newborns last year.

The Daily Mail has gruesome details. Reminds me of the “resurrectionist” trade, except that that involved studying corpses for medical research purposes and this involves … eating them:

The grim trade is being run from China where corrupt medical staff are said to be tipping off medical companies when babies are aborted or delivered still-born.

The tiny corpses are then bought, stored in household refrigerators in homes of those involved in the trade before they are removed and taken to clinics where they are placed in medical drying microwaves.

Once the skin is tinder dry, it is pummelled into powder and then processed into capsules along with herbs to disguise the true ingredients from health investigators and customs officers…

There have been disturbing reports that some babies were those who had perished in China’s notorious ‘dying rooms’ where youngsters are deliberately left to die because they were born into families that already had the limit of one child in country areas.

South Korean cops have confiscated nearly 18,000 capsules since last August. According to a documentary made last year, DNA tests confirm that the capsules include human flesh. In case that sounds tempting, fair warning: They’re not so good for you.

“This is gross, as well as creepy,” said Dr. William Schaffner, chairman of preventive medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, who consults regularly with the Centers for Disease Control.

“We have no idea how this material is processed and under what circumstances,” he said. “If it’s not done in a hygienic fashion to make assurances infections are excluded, it could contain viruses as well as bacteria.”…

Schaffner said the pills could transmit the drug-resistant bacteria MRSA that could be on the skin of a fetus. “If these fetuses went through the birth canal, they can quickly pick up bacteria,” he said.

Because the birth canal is in close proximity to the rectum, other bacteria like e coli, salmonella and shigella could be present.

There are roughly 35,000 abortions in China each day, more than 13 million per year. Next week’s Tom Friedman column should be amazing.

When dehydrated powered human is cheaper and easier to use than simple herbs, there will be a huge crash in that society. In a few years China will have admit that there is a population crash as there are 27 boys to 2 girls. They do not have billion people they are 200 million short. They had people on paper for those ghost cities but they all never where really born 20 years ago.

Shiny_Tiara on May 7, 2012 at 10:00 PM

I read the story on this earlier today. There are no words to describe how horrific this is.

But it is nothing compared to the preparing and eating of whole infants that takes place at ‘underground’ clandestine locations in China. Google it if you dare to. I don’t want to see the articles with the photo’s again. Ever. The photo’s accompanying the articles need no description as one can easily imagine what entails preparation of infants for human consumption — but they’re part of the investigation and necessary to convey the horror and the fanfare of preparing what apparently many people in China believe are meals that manifest ‘healing powers’ and ‘mystical magical powers’ that can be ‘absorbed’ by eating specially prepared human infants — including their ‘contents’. Some parts and innards are more highly prized than others. The main requirement is that the infant must have been a ‘viable’ human-being (ie: born — and if not born then not underdeveloped fetus). Apparently, most are female infants abandoned in the streets or dumped in trash receptacles — with male infants allegedly being more powerful but more rare and therefore more highly sought after — but some are late-term aborted infants too apparently.

It is all quite horrific and unfathomable. But then again, cannibals roamed different parts of the world and regularly consumed human-beings in many parts of the world right up to near modern times. There are certainly some that still do — or have recently. In fact, there are some factions in Africa currently that will actually abduct young males and hack off the parts they need and dispose of the rest of the body — then eat the parts they gathered by making potions and other edibles out of the parts.

What a world.

There is no slippery slope, it is all the same miasma of the Culture of Death. There is no such thing as partial acceptance or drawing the line. Once abortion is acceptable, there is no longer a line to cross.

I don’t see the big deal. Everytime you take a sip of Pepsi your drinking aborted human fetal tissue.

If you want to reject cheap sloganeering, then let’s be honest about “pro-life” and call it “human fetuses, über alles!”

F*** the rhinoceros you sick f***. I would personally exterminate every single rhinoceros on the planet if it meant saving one human life.

Would you do the same for unborn Mohammad in Afghanistan?

The larger point is that China is out of control, given the demands of its backward culture for human and animal flesh, whether its from humans, rhinos, tigers, elephants, sharks… and the list goes on.

Gosh you guys! It’s not evil! It’s all about a woman’s choice! (Except in China where it’s not a choice, and it IS evil.)

Hmm… so, the modern analogue for an ancient Chinese remedy has finally arrived.

Yes kids, once upon a time, ’2-legged lamb’ was considered a ‘cure’ for respiratory issues… a cure sought by the wealthy and powerful Chinese elite.

They also thought powered cinnabar was a curative as well… not to mention a component of the Elixir of Life.

So much for superior wisdom and knowledge of the Middle Kingdom.

Rats… powdered cinnabar

Pro-human-life is fine. Of course, it’s natural to drop the “human” part since it’s implicit to the majority of the English speaking commenters on this blog.

Just to be clear, are you implying that it’s wrong to look down on Islamic cultures but morally expected to look down on Chinese people because of their dietary practices?

For the record, the pills were being sold to South Korean consumers… right?

Who am I or you too judge? Who, but God, can know the path any one person’s life will take? We don’t judge the innocent, we judge those capable of making choices for themselves.

And I would do a million abortions to save a single species of a plant.
