Pills from China contain ground up babies in capsule form

Lots of "alternative medicines" or more correctly quack cures are found in shipments from China to gullible or desperate people throughout the world. Many of these ingredients are taken from endangered species, such as rhino horns or illegally harvested sharks. Now, customs officials are aghast at a recent trend of capsules from China that contain the powdered remains of stillborn or aborted children.

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

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Thousands of pills filled with powdered human babies have recently been discovered by customs officials in South Korea. The capsules are in demand because they are viewed as being a medicinal "cure-all."

Corrupt medical staff in China are said to be tipping off medical companies when babies are aborted or delivered still-born. South Korean officials have since stopped 17,000 dead baby pills being imported since last August.

The dead bodies are bought and stored in household refrigerators in the 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 dry, it is pummeled into powder, processed into capsules along with herbs to disguise the true ingredients from health investigators and customs officers.

The discoveries have shocked even hardened customs agents who have pledged to strengthen inspections.

Chinese officials are understood to have been aware of the trade and attempted to stop the capsules being exported but thousands of packets of them have been smuggled through to South Korea.

The Chinese have traditionally consumed human placentas to improve blood supply and circulation. Many of the remedies are more than 2,000 years old.

In spite of claims that these "cures" can treat everything from broken bones to headaches, there is limited proof they actually do anything and their ingestion may be horribly harmful. The macabre practice is one more example of theeffects of the culture of death and use.

The shipments have been found to have been impure, as a team of Australian scientists discovered that some of the medicines contained traces of black bears and antelope. The Murdoch University team used DNA sequencing to work out what the plants and animal ingredients are.

There are concerns that the powdered dead baby trade will find its way onto the internet and be sold to gullible or sick desperate people in other parts of the world.

The South Korean Customs Service said today that it had heightened its searches of suspicious packages being brought into the country by travelers from China in an attempt to stamp out the sickening trade.

Thirty-five smuggling attempts have been made since August last year involving more than 17,000 capsules disguised as "stamina boosters."

Hospitals and abortion clinics in China reportedly pass the remains onto drugs companies when a baby is stillborn or aborted, the South Korean SBS documentary team reported last year.
