I didn't think that abortion could be any more disgusting, but then I read this...how/why would anyone even think of using aborted remains like this?
Thousands of pills containing dehydrated and crushed human flesh have been confiscated by South Korean customs officials.
The pills originate in China, where manufacturers reportedly obtain the corpses of aborted or stillborn babies from hospitals and abortion facilities, then dehydrate their bodies before crushing them up for the pills.
The pills are sold as sexual stamina enhancers and as alternative medicine for a variety of ailments.
Despite the dearth of evidence about their alleged benefits – in fact, Korean officials say the pills are dangerous – more than 17,000 of the pills have been intercepted in 35 different shipments coming into South Korea since last August.
A customs official told the Korea Times, “It was confirmed those capsules contain materials harmful to the human body, such as super bacteria. We need to take tougher measures to protect public health.”
Reports that China is host to the gruesome industry of fetal flesh pharmaceuticals have been around for some time. Last August Chinese officials announced they were launching an investigation into the allegations, after a South Korean television station broadcast a documentary about the pills.
