China Daily reported "It has long been a folk tradition to eat placentas in China." And "A test from the national customs office and institute of scientific investigation in South Korea showed the content of the pills received by the television team was 99.7 percent identical with humans, the program said." The article entitled, "Ministry investigates pills made of 'baby flesh'" of August 10, 2011, has more details.

The part represents the whole. Is there any ethical problem with dead baby pills in an atheistic society? Whether the story proves to be true or not, there isn't really an ethical problem for atheists here because there is no ultimate standard for ethics. Because the pills seem to pragmatically kill two birds with one stone, helping to resolve overpopulation and the need for more stamina to work in the sweat-shop factories, these pills can be "rationalized"on a certain level, no matter how grotesque it may seem at first. Judging from the philosophical trends in society, high-tech cannibalism seams to be on the menu.
In "Answering Atheists" Dinesh D'Souza noted how atheists sometimes don't want to put two and two together: "Richard Dawkins argues that at least the atheist regimes didn't kill people in the name of atheism. Isn't it time for this biologist to get out of the lab and read a little history? Marxism and Communism were atheist ideologies. Stalin and Mao weren't dictators who happened to be atheist; atheism was part of their official doctrine. It was no accident, as the Marxists liked to say, that they shut down the churches and persecuted the clergy.."
