He Went Inside A Noodle Soup Restaurant In China. What He Found Inside? Disgusting!

A new photo featuring dead fetuses being sold in China has circulated in the social media once again. Although information about the exact circumstances behind the photo were limited, police allegedly found this in a noodle soup restaurant in China. The person who uploaded the photo said the fetuses were lined up and being sold like fish. You can notice three people in the background who are probably the vendors of the fetuses.

Some netizens even commented that a handful of restaurants offer “soup number 5,” which is said to be composed of whole fetuses. This soup is also believed to taste delicious and enhance sexual desire. What do you think of this photo? Let us know in the comment box below and share this post to your family and friends too!

The public speculates that these fetuses were aborted so that their mothers can escape the sanctions of China’s one-child policy. The said policy dictates that families should only have one child, unless if the first born is a girl. According to the US State Department, Parliament of the United Kingdom, and the human rights organization Amnesty International, China’s family planning schemes may contribute to infanticide, or infant homicide, which pertains to the “intentional killing of children under the age of 12 months.”

He Went Inside a Noodle Soup Restaurant in China…
– Before It’s News

A new photo featuring dead fetuses being sold in China has circulated in the social media once again. Although information about the exact circumstances behind the photo were limited, police allegedly found this in a noodle soup restaurant in China. The person who uploaded the photo said the fetuses were lined up and being sold like fish. You can notice three people in the background who are probably the vendors of the fetuses.

Netizens have expressed their disgust over the photo and shared some very strong words of aversion towards this practice. As this new photo appears to be totally different from the ones posted a few years back, it is shocking to know that this still continues to happen.

Now, the Chinese people may be famous for eating all manners of foods, many of which would seem disgusting to other cultures. However, only a fool would believe that the Chinese would eat human fetuses. Yes, folks, the posts above, and all other similar ones out there, are FALSE.

 

There Is No Such Thing As Fetus Noodle Soup

Although there is the perception that the Chinese people will eat anything and everything, cannibalism is taboo in the Chinese culture. More so if it involves a fetus. The Chinese people have a strong abhorrence towards harming children due to their Confucian upbringing.

The idea that a segment of Chinese society actually consumes such fetus noodle soup (which some call soup number 5!) can be traced to controversial Chinese artist Zhu Yu’s performance art piece called “Eating People“. In that 2000 creation, Zhu Yu was photographed cooking and eating what appears to be a 6 month-old fetus.

Needless to say, it resulted in an uproar of outrage, and the inevitable creation of the urban legend of the cannibalistic Chinese people. Despite being debunked by umpteen myth-busting websites, the idea that the Chinese people have no qualms eating human fetuses continues to persist.

 

All Silent On The Chinese Front

The stories claim that the Chinese police raided the restaurant because someone discovered that they were selling fetus noodle soup. However, there is no mention of such an incident in the Chinese media, whether in print or online.

Despite China’s strict regulation and censorship of the media within the country, they can never keep a lid on food scandals like this. In fact, the Chinese media and netizens have regularly exposed food scandals.

Chinese netizens (wang min) are amongst the most skilled and ferocious online vigilantes in the world. They even coined a term for their “human-flesh search engine” capability – renrou sousuo yinqing. Their ability to trace criminals and the truth from nothing more than a picture or a video is legendary. In fact, The New York Times were so impressed, they wrote about China’s Cyberposse.

This story on fetus noodle soup would have resulted in a frenzied virtual manhunt for this purported restaurant of fetus noodle soup. However, there is no indication that the Chinese netizens are even aware of this photo. So far, this photo has only appeared on Western websites.

 

Are You Telling Me That The Photo Is Fake?

Sadly, the photo is genuine. That is really a picture of aborted human fetuses of various ages and sizes. However, they were not being displayed for sale, as claimed by all those websites. In fact, that picture was not even taken in China.

The truth is that that is a picture of aborted fetuses that authorities in Thailand discovered inside a trash bag around or sometime before the 16th of July 2015. when the original photo was first posted. They were likely dumped by an illegal abortion clinic. This is not unheard of in Thailand, where 2,002 fetuses were once found in the Phai-nguern Chotinaram temple in Bangkok.

Although Thailand is known for its sex industry, it is a very conservative Buddhist society. Therefore, abortions are not just frowned upon, they are illegal in Thailand unless the mother’s life is in danger, or the fetus is abnormal, or the pregnancy occurred as a result of a rape.

That’s why illegal abortions are rife, with such gruesome discoveries like this occurring on a regular basis.

Of course, illegal abortions and the dumping of their bodies are not a Thai problem. This is a problem wherever there is a lack of access to affordable contraceptives, sex education and yes, legal abortion services.

 

Summary

If all that is too long to read, here’s a short summary :

  • No one has ever cooked or eaten an aborted fetus.
  • There is no such thing as fetus noodle soup.
  • There is no restaurant selling fetus noodle soup.
  • The fetuses in the picture were not being sold for food.
  • The fetuses in the picture were found in a garbage bag.
  • The picture was not taken in China. It was taken in Thailand.
