In May, South Korean customs intercepted shipments from China that included capsules filled with dried human flesh. This is not the first time these types of pills have been discovered. Test carried out on this contraband show the pills are made up of 99.7% human remains.
South Korean customs agents say there have been more of these shipments intercepted lately. 35 smuggling attempts have been foiled since August of last year. More than 17,000 capsules have been caught by customs.
The grim reality of this trade is that people pay huge amounts of money for the pills. They are promoted as ways to increase stamina, retain youth, and increase vitality. In reality these pills are comprised of the remains of stillborn or aborted babies. Corrupt medical companies in China routinely participate in the illicit trade of human flesh.
China performs more than 13 million abortions a year. The country’s strict one-child policy has been revoked but sentiment still remains and many in China choose not to keep their children. Chinese authorities say that 38% of child-bearing age women have been sterilized.
Concentration camps have formed as violators of the rules are rounded up for re-education. The Chinese Communist Party says these camps are not illegal and that foreigners who call them concentration camps are lying. The Chinese Foreign Minister derided US politicians comments as “fabricated” and “fake news.”
The most common violation that get’s people thrown into these camp is “birth control violations.” Birth rates in the Uyghur populated regions have dropped by more than 60% between 2015 and 2018 according to Chinese statistics.
