South Korea seizes 'stamina' capsules made from human babies

Fetuses, and babies left to die, are used to make a macabre 'stamina' drug.

Officials in South Korea seized thousands of pills featuring the powdered flesh of babies and aborted fetuses. Customs agents discovered a shipment of the grim material that brought from China and billed as a ‘cure-all.’ The SBA news service of South Korea reported that the corpses of the dead babies and fetuses are sold by medical staff to companies which then process them into products for sale outside of China. Stored in refrigeration in the homes of the perpetrators, the corpses are then dried by microwave. Then, they are ground into powder and turned into capsules with the admixture of herbs, according to health inspectors and customs agents.

The finding was publicized on May 7, but seizures have been ongoing since August 2011. Veteran customs agents were shocked and troubled by the discoveries. Hospitals and abortion-providers are apparently providing the raw material for the trade. South Korean has detained a number of smugglers who claim that they did not know the ingredients of the offending capsules.

However, Chinese traditional or alternative medicine and cure-all have a long and venerable tradition in the Middle Kingdom. Human placentas have long been used in Chinese medicine, for instance, as well as rhinoceros horn, bear gallbladder, and the sex organs of certain animals. Chinese traditional medicine has devotees throughout Asia and elsewhere in the world. It is often available in stores offering alternative remedies and on the internet. The South Korean Customs Service said that it has now stepped up its searches of packages being brought into the country from China so as to end the unethical trade in human remains. According to the customs service, dozens of attempts have been made since August 2011 to bring more than 17,000 capsules of the product labeled as ‘stamina boosters.’

Tests carried out on the pills confirm they were made up of 99.7 per cent human remains. The respective sexes of the babies used was also established. The capsules made from human flesh may contain super-virulent bacteria, as well as other harmful substances. However, in reality the human flesh capsules contain super-bacteria and other harmful ingredients.

Newspapers in China allege that the northeastern province of China is the source of babies and fetuses used, in particular the Jilin region that is near North Korea. Reports abound that some of the babies used for the capsules were harvested from China’s infamous 'dying rooms' where infants are left to perish because they had been born to families that had already reached the government-imposed limit of one child. China performs approximately 13 million abortions a year because mothers sacrifice their newborns so as to to avoid punishment, heavy fines, or beatings from Communist officials.

South Korea has not confirmed the origin of the human remains, ostensibly to avoid any diplomatic friction with China or North Korea.
