S Korean customs agents seize 17,000 pills containing powdered human baby flesh

There’s a pill for that—that being whatever ails you—and, horrifyingly, it contains the powdered remains of human infants. The Daily Mail reports:
Thousands of pills filled with powdered human flesh have been discovered by customs officials in South Korea, it was revealed today.
The capsules are in demand because they are viewed as being a medicinal ‘cure-all’.
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.
The article notes that this disturbing “medication” is just one of a number of alternative Chinese remedies, which include ground up rhino horns, that are in high demand. The Chinese have long maintained that consuming human placentas improves blood supply and circulation.
According to customs agents, this most recent bust netted a cache of some 17,000 capsules, described on their packaging as “stamina boosters.” Adding to the sheer horror of the insidious trade are reports that some of the ground-up infants were among those who had perished in China’s notorious “dying rooms.” As their starkly inhumane name implies, these are locations where children are purposefully left to die because they were born into families that already had reached the allowable legal limit of one child.
According to the website IBTimes San Francisco, DNA tests performed on a batch of these capsules that were seized in August of 2011 revealed that the contents are 99.7 percent human.
In order to keep its population under control, China performs an estimated 13 million abortions a year. Many of these are grudgingly agreed to by women who sacrifice their newborns in order to avoid punishment, which is said to includes beatings by state officials.
