    I don't see what the big deal is. I can go down to the corner store and buy a whole bottle of baby powder. Perfectly legal in the states.

    Baby powder production in the US has a long list of regulations. These pills do not.

    This is actually the current name of my current Skype chat.

    Yes we were talking about this, we're not sick fucks.

    But this crime is so oddly disgusting that I really don't know what to say.

    Chopping up and drying babies, which, believe it or not, happen to be rather hard to come by in huge quantities compared to other sources of protein that are readily available seems like going really out of your way for something that could be achieved easier, cheaper and legally.

    Does the powder have any occult or otherwise "magical" use?

    I think there was some confusion when we told China to use the pill to prevent having to deal with children.

    Aborted or still-born according to the articles. The manufacturers buy them from hospitals.

    While my jokes may be bad, at least I am not hurtful to the feelings of others.

    I'm wondering how this is at all relevant to the topic at hand.

    No, you are not, but your jokes do not further the discussion.

    Which part of "still-born or aborted" implies lack of valuing life? They were not killed for the purpose, they were bought dead. Still nasty, but not malicious, at least.

    Well, I believe that this is what happens when the value of money is higher than the value of life...

    and they vary by region.

    but i was just wondering as it makes a difference story wise. i mean the story is already pretty macabre, but if the babies were actual babies born alive and well then there would be more implications like actual murders for the making of such pills.

    i saw a movie called dumplings were this woman makes dumplings from fetuses to stay young and i thought that could easily be based on true events.
