Life Links 8/11/11

According to the International Business Times, a South Korean documentary television team found Chinese pharmaceutical companies use the remains of aborted children for stamina pills.
Chinese hospitals and abortion clinics that are connected to the business immediately notify pharmaceutical companies when a baby dies, mostly because of a still birth or an abortion.

The companies purchase the baby corpses and store them in some family's refrigerator to avoid suspicion. The next step in this highly secretive process is putting the corpses in a medical drying microwave and grinding them into pills. The ground baby powder is then put in a capsule, ready to be sold as a stamina enhancer, according to the SBS team.
The team ran tests on the pills and found them to be 99.7% human.

A San Diego attorney has pled guilty to baby selling. From the LA Times:
According to court documents, Erickson hired women in San Diego to go to Ukraine to be implanted with embryos created from the sperm and eggs of donors.

Once a woman was in the second trimester of pregnancy, she would return to San Diego and Erickson would "shop" the babies by falsely telling couples that a couple who had intended to adopt the baby had backed out of the deal. The new couple would then be charged between $100,000 and $150,000, according to prosecutors.

Overheard - does having an abortion give abortion advocates more pro-choice credibility? From the Abortioneers blog:
I've never had an abortion. I've never even had a pregnancy scare, though that's probably more because of the lack of opportunity than anything else. Sometimes I start to think that I could have just a teeny bit more Abortioneer cred if I had had an abortion, even though I don't really believe that there is a hierarchy of pro-choicedness.

From Britain, we have another example of an abortion clinic worker who does his job because he cares so much about women rights.
A consultant used the hands of sedated patients to perform obscene acts on himself during abortion procedures, a medical watchdog heard.

Dr Narendra Sharma, who was working at the Marie Stopes clinic in Fallowfield, Manchester, as a locum anaesthetist, is accused of moving a woman's hand under the operating table during one of the procedures.
