Chinese Intercept Ground Baby Parts

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

I’m glad I don’t live in South Korea or China. I might have ingested human baby parts. There’s a report that Chinese customs officials have intercepted 17,000 pills filled with powdered baby parts from China. They were purported to be both a stamina-enhancer and a medical panacea in parts of Asia. What ?

The Daily Mail explains:

“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 pummeled into powder and then processed into capsules along with herbs to disguise the true ingredients from health investigators and customs officers.”

They say that the capsules were confiscated – all of them. No one has been arrested, as the authorities deemed that 17,000 pills was only a small amount. Sounds like a lot to me.

Dying Rooms

There are reports that not only aborted or stillborn babies were used in the pills – but they also put baby parts in there of children left to die in China’s “dying rooms”. I guess the Chinese are only allowed to have one child per family. So if they make more than that – they just let them die after birth. What a waste. It makes me sick.

There are reports that say the South Koreans are unwilling to press the issue for fear of creating a diplomatic rift with China, instead preferring to let Chinese officials investigate and take any necessary action when the Chinese intercepted ground baby parts.

Allegedly, the baby corpses were supplied by hospitals in China that sold the them to the company that manufactures the tablets for the equivalent of around 20,000 yen, (US$200.00) each. The pills were selling for the equivalent of 600 yen, (USD6.00) each.
