08 / 05 / 2012 - 17,000 `Aphrodesiac` pills made from dead, aborted babies seized by police in South Korea
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.
The makers of the documentary claimed they traveled to the hospitals where aborted babies were being sold to the pill manufacturers. They also obtained one of the pills which they sent to a lab, where it was tested and found to be 99.7 percent human flesh. Experts reportedly found bits of hair in the capsules, and could even determine the child’s gender.
Similar allegations regarding the use of human fetuses in China have emerged in the past, including claims that some restaurants in China have served “fetal soup,” and that Chinese beauty product manufacturers have included fetal materials in their products.
In another bizarre case, a Chinese artists displayed photographs of himself eating the body parts of a dead baby.
While Chinese officials have condemned the trade, the country’s government-sanctioned one-child policy provides the conditions for such industries to flourish.
China’s human rights activists have said that more than 35,000 abortions, many of them forced, take place daily in a country whose official policies often demand coercive measures against “illegal pregnancies.”

Thousands of pills filled with powdered human baby flesh discovered by customs officials in South Korea
Thousands of pills filled with powdered human flesh have been discovered by customs officials in South Korea.
The capsules are in demand because they are viewed as being a medicinal 'cure-all'.
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 pummelled into powder and then processed into capsules along with herbs to disguise the true ingredients from health investigators and customs officers.
The discoveries since last August has shocked even hardened customs agents who have pledged to strengthen inspections.
Chinese officials are understood to have been aware of the trade and have tried to stop the capsules being exported but thousands of packets of them have been smuggled through to South Korea.
The Chinese have historically consumed human placentas to improve blood supply and
Health authorities in Asia are concerned that if the powdered foetus trade is allowed to continue the capsules will find their 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 travellers from China in an attempt to stamp out the sickening trade.
According to customs agents, 35 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.
The San Francisco Times reported that tests carried out on the pills confirmed they were made up of 99.7 per cent human remains.
The tests were successfully able to establish the genders of the babies used.
There is a huge demand for the pills which are thought to enhance stamina. Microwave-dried placenta is also sought after for its alleged 'medicinal' benefits.
However, in reality the human flesh capsules contain super-bacteria and other harmful ingredients.
A number of smugglers who have been detained by the South Korean authorities have claimed they did not know what the ingredients were or the manufacturing process behind them.
'Ethnic Koreans from north-east China who now live in South Korea are those who were mostly intending to use the capsules or share them with other Korean-Chinese' said a customs official.
'They are normally brought into South Korea in luggage or posted by international mail.'
The capsules were all confiscated but no one has been punished because the amount was deemed small and they were not intended for sale, a customs official added.
Chinese newspapers have identified the north eastern provinces as the source of the human flesh capsules, in particular the Jilin region which is close to North Korea.
