China: Pills Not Made From Aborted Babies
The People’s Republic of China is refuting recent reports that it made pills from dried and ground aborted fetuses.
China’s state-run news agency Xinhuanet has published an article that cites a government Ministry of Health official, Deng Haihua, that “medications made of human remains were not found in the country.”
The story broke earlier this week when a South Korean news agency reported that smugglers were arrested after trying to bring over 10,000 pills made from Chinese dead human babies into the country.
According to the The Korea Times, some people believe that pills made from the dried and ground flesh of human babies will increase stamina. The pills can fetch around 40,000 South Korean won (about $35 in U.S. dollars).
