Cannabalism in China OK if for Health?!

While I understand that there are Cultural differences between the US and Asia, this has to be one of the grossest things I have ever heard of. How in the hell can anyone claim this is not wrong no matter where you come from? I mean it isn't as if this is a starving People. They are doing this beacuse it is a "supplement for health and beauty." I am aware that we have some "beauty" products here in the United States that use placenta material, which I find objectionable, but this is an atrocity, in My View of "It". Unbelievable!

The Next Magazine, a weekly publication from Hong Kong, reported that infant corpses and fetuses have become the newest supplements for health and beauty in China. Not only is the placenta considered a beauty remedy, but also aborted fetuses are much sought after delicacies. In Guangdong, gourmet body parts are in high demand and can even be purchased through hospitals. The magazine’s investigations into this form of cannibalism took them to Liaoning province.

According to The Next Magazine, during a banquet hosted by a Taiwanese businessman, a servant Ms Liu from Liaoning province on the mainland inadvertently revealed the habit of eating infants/fetuses in Liaoning province and her intention to return for the supplement due to health concerns. The Taiwanese women present were horrified.

Ms Liu also disclosed that even though people can afford the human parts there are still waiting lists and those with the right connections get the “highest quality” human parts, which translates to the more mature fetuses. A male fetus is considered the “prime” human part.

At the The Next Magazine’s request, Ms Liu personally escorted the reporter to a location where a fetus was being prepared. The reporter observed a woman chopping up a male fetus and making soup from the placenta. During the process, the woman even tried to comfort everyone by saying, “Don’t be afraid, this is just the flesh of a higher animal.”

The boy’s remains were cremated in the mountains in accordance with the customs of the region.

In fact, in China, reports about meals made from infant flesh have surfaced from time to time. A video is on the Internet for people to view. In the introduction, the Chinese claim that eating a human fetus is an art form.

On March 22, 2003, police in Bingyan, Guangxi Province seized 28 female babies smuggled in a truck from Yulin, Guangxi Province going to Houzhou in Anhui Province. The oldest baby was only three months old. The babies were packed three or four to a bag and many of them were near death—none were claimed by their parents.

On the morning of October 9, 2004, a person rifling through the garbage on the outskirts of Jiuquan city in the Suzhou region, found dismembered babies in a dumpster. There were two heads, two torsos, four arms, and six legs. According to the investigation, these corpses were no more than a week old and they had been dismembered after cooking.

Although China has laws that prohibit the eating of human fetus, the regime’s forced abortions to ensure the one child policy is strictly adhered to thereby creating many opportunities for these sorts of atrocities to occur.

What would make people do such a thing without any fear of condemnation? Since Mao’s Cultural Revolution, a complete lack of morality and respect for human life has become the norm in China. Over time, domination by the Chinese Communist regime has led to inhuman behavior and human rights violations resulting in abnormal practices such as cannibalism.

We were able to find the video showing still shots of the process but we want to warn you that it is very extreme and graphic. Please do not view this video unless you are over 18 years old and you have a very strong nerve.

Hi Jill,
I just checked out your site. I can't believe that a people can be so cruel. I do not mean to be disrespectful, but, it is what it is. Kudos to you for your Activism and Advocacy for these poor animals.

Agh.

Horrbile thing this. What could possibly be worse.

You're right, this goes beyond cultural differences and is entrenched in the realms of evil.

I couldn't agree with you more. That is exactly what it is: "entrenched in evil" I cannot begin to imagine how something like this is even possible, no matter where it happens.
