A South Korea investigative news team has produced a documentary reporting that the largest hospital in China is selling human fetuses, placentas, and whole corpses of dead babies to a dietary supplement manufacturer for use in its line of stamina-increasing pills.
Witness the following statement taken from a story in the English language China Daily:
The Ministry of Health said on Tuesday that it has launched an investigation in the wake of a media report in South Korea about capsules from China — made from the flesh of dead babies — being used as stamina boosters.
The story in the China Daily goes on to say that:

As stated, the results indicate that 99.7% of the material stuffed into the capsules was of human origin. The South Korean reporters claimed that some of the remains were so freshly obtained that the gender of the body was still distinguishable.
The undercover investigation was spurred by persistent rumors throughout Asia that several of these Chinese tablet manufacturers were using dead babies as an additive to their stamina boosters. The team from SBS TV decided to chase down the rumors and uncover the truth behind the chilling rumors.
Early in the investigation, the newsmen found a hospital, a very large hospital, selling to pharmaceutical companies human remains obtained from stillbirths and abortions. The team learned of a well-known hospital policy that if an employee reported a “deceased baby case,” then supervisors were to forthwith put in a call to the pill company.
As if the fact were not enough that such cannibalistic regulations were being promulgated and carried out by hospital staff and the dead babies were actually being used in the manufacture of the pills, the . . .
