    WASHINGTON, May 10, 2012 — China’s one child policy, baby trafficking, and sex trafficking of North Korean women aren’t the worst human rights violation happening in the country. Aborting innocent and healthy unborn children and eating them to boost one’s stamina and sexual health is.

    South Korean customs officials recently seized thousands of pills filled with powdered human baby flesh arriving from China. Since August 2011, South Korean officials have intercepted more than 17000 pills smuggled from China.

    South Korean officials became aware of a horrific practice of eating aborted fetuses after Seoul Broadcasting System showed a documentary on Chinese doctors who performed abortions and then ate the fetuses. One Chinese doctor on the documentary took out fetuses from his refrigerator
    Chinese cannibalism of infant flesh outrages the world

    What I could expect from a communist country! Don't let all that flesh go to waste!

    That Government has done much worse than that. Doesn't surprise me in the slightest. North Korea, their friends, are starving , and fetus is quite nutritious. Something to ponder next time you eat :p

    Whenever I see an article with something like "outrages the world" in its title, I become highly skeptical of its claims. Thankfully, there are other articles that have more respect for fact-checking before drawing such conclusions:

    Could Cannibalism Be Alive and Well in Modern World?

    Yellow journalism has never been and will never be a reliable source of news, especially not when the purported news is explicitly written to garner an emotional reaction from readers.

    Yes, but I believe the pills were smuggled into Korea and a lot of false reports and rumors followed.

    When multiple falsehoods are proven surrounding the truth, people will dismiss the truth with it

    Such a shame. I guess that baby eating will remain a purely atheistic activity.

    The Daily Mail is not a reliable source either. Bias and false reporting are two of the main reasons it's always good to cross-check news using different sources instead of relying on just one or two.

    As I said, when one true atrocity happens many falsehoods and rumors will arise around it so everyone dismisses the true sources

    What "worse things"? And the ultimate source for both stories is the Daily Mail, not the most reliable of sources. When a story like this can only be found coming from one rather unreliable source you should not give it very much credibility.

    Excuse me but I must cook breakfast now. Fresh is so much better than pills.

    I don't believe abortion to be wrong. (It's more moral than over-population.)
    So while eating human flesh is gross, it doesn't concern me. (And our favorite
    Chinese & Korean restaurants don't serve it.)
    China does things so much worse, eg, conquering Tibet, threatening Taiwan,
    attacking our planes, those silly "wire work" kung fu movies. Baby pills are meh...

    China killed more of it's own people than any other government.

    The industrial-scale killing of prisoners of conscience for their organs in China is a crime so awful that many initially found it too hard to believe. Since an initial 140-page report on allegations was released in 2006, this has largely changed due to the efforts of researchers, journalists, and activists including many in the medical profession.

    “There is today increasing commentary around the world about the inhuman commerce begun and run today by the party-state in Beijing. One was a 7-page cover story recently in Salud, a medical magazine read in Spain and other Spanish-speaking nations,” saidformer Canadian lawmaker David Kilgour at Canada’s parliament earlier this month after the screening of the award-winning documentary Human Harvest: China’s Illegal Organ Trade.

    “Prisoners of conscience often convicted of nothing are the primary source of pillaged organs. They include Uyghurs, Tibetans, and Christians, but are overwhelmingly Falun Gong practitioners-long dehumanized in party-state media throughout China,” Kilgour said.

    Nobel Peace prize nominee Kilgour was one of three researchers who released another report in 2016 that estimated that there are 60,000 to 100,000 organ transplants performed annually in China.

    One article by AFP detailed one case that occurred in a town in the southern region of Guangxi. “The hearts, livers, and genitals of victims were cut out and fed to revelers,” said a Chinese official who asked not to be named for fear of repercussions. “All the cannibalism was due to class struggle being whipped up, and was used to express a kind of hatred,” he said. “The murder was ghastly, worse than beasts.”

    Copies of official documents smuggled out of China stated that acts of cannibalism where organized by local Communist Party officials, reported The New York Times in 1993. Those who participated in acts of cannibalism did so to prove their revolutionary spirit, said the documents.

    An estimated 2 to 3 million people died in the chaos.

    China has committed atrocities that make cannabalism look like a pillow fight. Why place any faith in a Government that killed more people than Adolf Hitler or Stalin?

    I know not to believe all the rumors that arise around the atrocities. But people find out some of the rumors are false and dismiss all of it, when the facts say otherwise

    No, I was wondering what worse things, too. Frankly, I'm having a hard time imagining much worse than infant cannibalism, but please, enlighten us?

    I didn't say their all cannibals. Some pills have been found in Korea with powdered infant flesh. Big deal!

    Compared to other things China does, that doesn't even bother me

    Read post 14 and 13
    I consider harvesting organs of prisoners for petty offenses worse

    Killing more people than Hitler and Stalin is worse
