A um argumento não se responde com censura, responde-se com um contra-argumento

Conteúdo de um folheto distribuído em algumas escolas portuguesas pela associação SOS Vida: "no hospital de Taiwan até se compram bebés mortos a 50/70 dólares para churrasco!!!". Ao lado, uma imagem de um alegado feto num prato, numa mesa onde um oriental (o artista chinês Zhu Yu), com os talheres na mão, se prepara para comer.

Aborted Babies are Being Sold For Food in Taiwan and China-Fiction!

Rumors of Fetus Eating in Taiwan Traced to Mainland Performing Artist

One of the downsides of a burgeoning Internet is it fosters the delirious spread of misinformation as revealed fact in the blink of an eye. That was the case when a widely-circulated photo which showed a large Asian man eating what appeared to be a cooked baby was taken by many at face value. ( As for the "baby," it was most likely constructed by placing a doll's head on a duck's carcass.)

This book focuses on the belief in Taiwan that the spirit of an aborted fetus can return to haunt its family.
