***DO NOT SCROLL DOWN IF YOU ARE NOT PREPARED TO VIEW GRAPHIC PHOTOS***
[photos removed by staff]

Ok, where to put this? No idea. Mods?

Anyways, it seems that the rumor mill of the Chinese eating babies is again ramping up but in an entirely different venue. The Seoul Times of all places!

An email report received by The Seoul Times confirmed that news with several vivid and appalling pictures of human embryos and fetuses being made into a soup for human consumption.

Now that this has been reported in a more reputable paper, is it true? And if so, what can be done about it?

My biggest question would be not the legal point but rather the moral one. How can people do this in this day and age? And then there is the question of how does one knowingly sit down to eat a fetus? Really?
seoultimes

(Guangdong) is now in focus. Chinese folks there are enjoying baby herbal soup to increase overall health and stamina and the power of sexual performance in particular.

I know that this has been reported before and has been relegated to the hoax bin but as it is now surfacing in a Korean National newspaper, maybe it should be looked at a little more seriously?

Also, why is it not reported in the Western MSM?

The cost in Chinese currency is approximately Rs 2,000 (which is about US$4,000). A factory manager was interviewed and he testified that it is effective because he is a frequent customer. It is a delicacy whereby expensive herbs are added to boil the baby with chicken meat for eight hours. He pointed to his second wife next to him. She is 19 years old.

The 62-year-old man testified that they have sex everyday. After waiting for a couple of weeks he took the reporter to the restaurant when he was informed by the restaurant manager that the spare rib soup (local code for baby soup) was now available.



Those babies who are close to be born and die naturally costs 2000 in China currency. Those aborted ones cost a few hundreds in China currency. Those couples who did not want to sell dead babies, placentas can be accepted also for couple of hundreds.


One local reporter was quoted as saying that this is the problem arising from Chinese taking too much attention in health or is the backfire effect when China introduced one child in a family policy.

This heinous crimes rise from the fact that majority of Chinese people prefer to have male babies and the poor families end up selling their female babies.

I don't really know if this is the reason but it seems to fit. Poor people not allowed to have female babies are selling the fetuses to put money in their pockets. But how can a mother do this would be my question? Or is it done without the parents knowledge?

I have to add that with my travels thru Asia, I have seen and heard many strange things eaten and done in the quest for "Stamina". And yes, it always seems to be the men doing this. It doesn't matter if it makes any sense at all.

Let's not forget that the bear gall bladders, insects, deer antler and penises are all eaten in the name of "Stamina". I could never understand how intelligent people could accept this train of thought and even if it was passed down through generations, why hasn't it been weeded out as myth, wives tales etc?

I just don't know.

I remember a thread, might have been a year ago, that had this story. There were different pics and if my memory serves me correctly, it was determined to be a hoax.

China has some history of cannibalism. Being that this story comes from the newspaper that it does, I wonder if maybe there is some truth to this one.

I lived in Asia for almost 8 years and yes, there were many rumors even back then. But now that it's on the pages of a reputable paper...???

I just don't know.

I have read in various books that during the Cultural Revolution in China, local communist leaders would kill off those deemed to be sympathizers to the Nationalists in years past and urge or force remaining villagers to consume their bodies.

There are always cases of cannibalism during periods of famine, and the Cultural Revolution provided the famine necessary for that type of cannibalism.

Its not the odour of dead baby soup I'm smelling, its propoganda. I think the west is gearing up for war for sure. I see Speilberg is putting out a 'heroic' WW2 film very soon too.

Chinese people are just people that live in China, they're not evil baby eating monsters, this is ludicrous. Good bit of timing for the old war machine I'd say.

Get a grip people. Good God !!

This isn't real. Do you honestly think that just because people live in a society a few thousand miles away that they eat babies in soup ?

Where's your ability to question information gone ?

If I'm not mistaken these images are from a Chinese artist named Zhu Yu

After he "ate" a cooked baby on TV, the images showed up on Rotten.org, which collects those sort of images, and it was then picked up by a Taiwanese tabloid which turned it into propaganda against their Chinese nemesis.

Fetus Soup, Anyone? The Myth Of Chinese Baby Soup

The truth? Can you handle the truth? These photos are actually lifted from a conceptual art piece by Chinese sculptor Zhu Yu. He makes realistic human organs, pieces of faces, babies and such and displays them like you would buy meat in the grocery store. They are indeed made from food products, you could actually eat them, but there's no human tissue in them. So dig in, and pass the dumplings!

Just one word...


Nasty!

On the other hand, if true, I would not have the slightest hesitation with nuking them if need be.

It is just plain outright disgusting.
