South Korea seizes capsules containing powdered flesh of dead babies

The South Korean government revealed Monday that it recently seized thousands of capsules filled with the powdered flesh of dead babies. Reportedly, some people believe the powder has medicinal purposes and was created in northeastern China.

South Korea has reportedly been reluctant to criticize China directly over the incident, out of fears of creating diplomatic friction with the country. But the process by which the powder is allegedly created is one of the most disturbing stories imaginable.

According to the Korea Customs Service, the bodies of dead babies are chopped into small pieces and dried on stoves before being turned into powder. The customs officials have refused to say exactly where the babies come from or who is responsible for making the capsules.

China has already been in the spotlight over activist Chen Guangcheng, whose work involves protesting the government’s sterilization and forced abortion policies. It was recently reported that China is working to “soften“ its one-child policy slogans, though not the actual policy itself.

Last year, Chinese officials ordered an investigation into the manufacturing of drugs made from dead fetuses or newborn babies. Nonetheless, South Korean officials said in a statement they have discovered 35 smuggling attempts since last August, during which 17,450 capsules labeled as “stamina boosters” were discovered. Rather than containing any inherent medicinal properties, the capsules are said to contain dangerous bacteria and other harmful, unspecified ingredients.

Amazingly, none of the smugglers have been arrested in the various confiscations because the South Korean customs officials said the amounts of human flesh contained in the capsules were too small and were not intended for direct sale. The smugglers claimed to have no knowledge of the human flesh content, saying they believed the capsules were ordinary stamina-boosting pills.

I have known for a long time that the perceptions held by the Chinese and apparently Asia at large are radically different from the perceptions and views I am familiar with and that human life does not have quite the same meaning or value.

But this is… repulsive.

And no one is going to be arrested. Of this I am quite certain.

Some of this profoundly ignorant belief in the magical properties of various substances was touched on in my post long ago on the extraction of bodily fluids from bears under conditions such that the bears were driven to commit suicide. Yes, bears. Asian “medicine” (read: superstition) also feels that if whatever they’re seeking is extracted while the creature is alive…  then it is even more powerful. Right. Ignorance!

Before my near-suicidal depression drives me to blustering foolishness, however, I’d best say right now that the superstition would appear to be not completely universal, seeing, obviously, as how the South Korean authorities did indeed confiscate these abominations, so, there is that. Which is good. But…

These Pills Are Made Out Of People!

Babies!

But we won’t mention the jaw-droppingly lame excuse given by the customs officials. Somewhat telling, isn’t it?

Odd… The weird and discounted Fortean story of the Dropa just popped itself up in the midst of trying to fathom how people could think that chopping up dead baby bodies into little pieces so theyd dry out faster is perfectly mundane.

Maybe they really ARE  aliens…

Creepy.

Peace.

    Whew, from the rolling organ transplant vehicles keeping executed prisoners’ valuable meat fresh, to this abomination. It seems the CCP is intent upon creating a state where no one respects any form of life. This is necromancy at its most basic form, fostering an all but cannibalistic society.

      Ah, yes, the transplants… I remember. Still, I’d assume, going on,, too. I remember seeing video from area media that sent chills down my spine.

      I have trouble wrapping my head around it all. I can’t comprehend how anyone could do it.

      I have seen other strange things unrelated to this tale, too, that make you wonder.

      So weird.
