Thousands of pills filled with powdered human baby flesh discovered by customs officials in South Korea
More than 17,000 pills smuggled into country have been intercepted since last August. Pills viewed as a “miracle cure” for all ailments – but unsurprisingly they are harmful.
Thousands of pills filled with powdered human flesh have been discovered by customs officials in South Korea, it was revealed today.
The capsules are in demand because they are viewed as being a medicinal “cure-all”.
The grim trade is being run from China where corrupt medical staff are said to be tipping off medical companies when babies are aborted or delivered still-born.
Dead baby pills: This is ground baby powder which tests discovered is 99.7 per cent human last year. South Korean officials have stopped 17,000 dead baby pills being imported since last August
The tiny corpses are then bought, storedin household refrigerators in homes of those involved in the trade before they are removed and taken to clinics where they are placed in medical drying microwaves.
Once the skin is tinder dry, it is pummelled into powder and then processed into capsules along with herbs to disguise the true ingredients from health investigators and customs officers.
The discoveries since last August has shocked even hardened customs agents who have pledged to strengthen inspections.
Chinese officials are understood to have been aware of the trade and have tried to stop the capsules being exported but thousands of packets of them have been smuggled through to South Korea.
Three former U.S. Presidents have denied children their basic human rights, and Obama will too unless we demand action. The CRC, The Convention on The Rights of the Child, is an international treaty that has been ratiﬁed by every country on Earth except the U.S. and Somalia. The CRC can change childrenʼs lives by ﬁnally giving our children their basic human rights.
These two children are paying for this:
Cristian Fernandez is a 12-year-old boy who faces life in prison. http://www.change.org/petitions/reverse-decision-to-try-12-yo-cristian-fernandez-as-an-adult
This 6 year old Texan boy was hospitalized after a school paddling. http://weatherforddemocrat.com/local/x980632247/School-parent-OK-with-paddling
Thousands of children in America suffer in similar ways! But Obama has the power to stop this by ratifying the CRC!
What does the CRC guarantee American children?
•The right to play.
•The right to be safe.
•The right to practice the religion of their choice.
•The right to an education without physical punishment.
•The right to be tried as a child, and not sentenced to life in prison without parole.
In 1995, President Clinton signed the CRC, but he didnʼt send it to the Senate. It is time for our President to take real action. Obama says heʼs committed to improving the lives of our children. He says he values their well-being. He says itʼs an embarrassment that the U.S hasn't ratiﬁed the CRC.
Enough talk, Mr. President. It’s time for action!
Over 200 non-proﬁts support the CRC, yet a small group of people are afraid of children having rights. They think parents should have 'fundamental rightsʼ over their children, to include the fundamental right to be criminally negligent parents.
. Here are a few of the crimes that will start to disappear:
. Child beatings occur in schools in 19 states more than 200,000 times a year.
. Approximately 6 million cases of child abuse go unreported annually.
. At least 200,000 children are sexually trafﬁcked across the U.S. annually.
. The U.S. is the only country on earth to imprison children for life without parole.
. America is the worst offender of child abuse in the Industrialized World.
It is time to end the hypocrisy, and give children their rights. It is time for our President to do the right thing.

To prevent a disaster in Turkey. The father with two children (a girl ten years old - a boy eight years old) to the UNHCR office in Ankara in 05/2008 were refugees. They Living conditions in Turkey have endured until today. Last winter, his son was barely sick. His illness was so close to his death. And now unjustly from the UNHCR office in Ankara he took a negative answer. Now, desperately fearing deportation to Iran, losing custody of her children, and continue living conditions in Turkey, has suffered severe stress. And for this father to continue living is impossible.
Bir baba ve 2 çocuk olmak üzere Purazad ailesi ülkemize mülteci olarak 2.5 sene önce sığınmıştır. Çok zor şartlar altında yaşamaya çalışıyorlar. Hatta oğulları Arash ölümcül bir hastalıktan kurtuldu. İran’a dönmek mümkün olmadığı için yaşamını yurtdışında geçirmek istiyorlar. Fakat BM bu isteklerini reddetti. Burada vereceğiniz bir ay bu isteklerine bir adım yaklaştıracak. Lütfen arkadaşlar bu hayat dolu insanların umuduna tutunmalarına yardım edelim ve bu sayfayı oylayıp paylaşalım insanlık namına bi iyilikte bulunalım.
Een ramp in Turkije te voorkomen. De vader met twee kinderen (een meisje tien jaar oud - een jongen acht jaar oud) aan het UNHCR-kantoor in Ankara op 05/2008 werden vluchtelingen. De levensomstandigheden in Turkije hebben ze meegemaakt tot vandaag. Afgelopen winter, zijn zoon was erg ziek. Zijn ziekte was zo dicht bij zijn dood. En nu ten onrechte van het UNHCR-kantoor in Ankara nam hij een ontkennend antwoord. Nu, wanhopig vrezen ze uitzetting naar Iran, voogdij over de kinderen te verliezen, blijven wonen in Turkije, heeft ernstige stress geleden en voor deze vader te blijven leven is onmogelijk.
Volgens onze menselijke geweten en bescherming van de rechten van het kind, dus van allen bewust van de menselijke samenleving en heren te behagen, met de goedkeuring van dit verzoekschrift zo spoedig mogelijk akkoord gaan.
For å forhindre en katastrofe i Tyrkia.... En far med to små barn (en jente 10 år og en gutt 8 år) Vi flyktet fra Iran til UNHCR-kontoret i Ankara for over 2 år siden, vi har disse årene hatt veldig dårlige levevikår. Siste vinter var min sønn veldig syk og holdt på å dø. Nå er jeg redd og desperat for at barna blir sendt tilbake til Iran , og jeg mister foreldreretten. Jeg ønsker bare at jeg og barna mine har det trygt og godt sammen.
Early Learning Initiative (or E.L.I.) is a learning program for children under the age for kingergarten admission. It provides manifold benefits.
First, it can act as a day care partial or full day schedule for working parents.
Second, it does this while fostering a child's growing mind, thereby preparing them for the rigors of a more active academic curriculum.
Third, it helps the children learn the intricacies of social interaction in a controlled, nurturing setting.
Finally, it allows for the early identification of various learning disorders in children by trained professionals.
The Governor of the State of Ohio, Ted Strickland, wants to eliminate funding for this program.
Internet images of child rape, abuse and exploitation are an international problem. Every year, the volume of images and the levels of violence and degradation are increasing at a disturbing rate through the medium of the Internet.
The global community recognizes that children are victimized by those who engage in the production, exhibition, distribution, and consumption of child sexual abuse images and exploitation.
To stop this internet industry of child sex crime, a broad national and international coalition of individuals, organizations, law enforcement agencies, and governments with a shared determination is needed.
Educational campaigns and training for parents, teachers, students, legislators, and law enforcement personnel is not enough.
Canadian LAWS must be the legislative protection base for children. Currentlly, weak laws and even more pathetic sentencing from judges allow child sex predators back into the community. The Child Safe Nation coaltion will work during the year of 2009 to see a force of change.
