Baby Ghosts In Thailand

Prepare yourselves. No seriously. Sit down, make sure you have not eaten in the last few hours nor expect to for roughly a day. Ready? Here goes.... has this article today, from which I'll quote...

The foetuses all come from illegal abortions. Once they are dried out, a black magic ceremony is performed to turn this into a Kumong Tong or Golden Boy. Some people believe that the spirit of the un-born child will protect them and keep them safe from danger. They are often worn in an amulet around the neck or close to the body


If you feel benevolent and particularly generous, this writer always appreciates things bought for him from his wishlist

Hold up. The aborted fetuses are "often worn in an amulet around the neck or close to the body"?

And uhh, surely it isn't the women who had these illegal abortions who wear their un-born children as jewelry?

(It isn't; is it? No, really. It can't be. I mean, if they didn't want...)

LOLercaust that I'm attempting to apply logic here, even.
