So I have a question about the cosmetic industry using fetal tissue.
OK so yesterday I was talking with my neighbor about makeup and she brought up that she had seen a program on T.V. a couple years back that talked about the cosmetic industry being linked to aborted fetuses. She said the cosmetic industry gets collagen and placentas from China because they have the one child rule. She said on this program it was said that woman in China often carry to full term and then are forced to get abortions or China's government forces their baby to be killed by infanticide. She said the cosmetic industry prefers and will pay more money if the baby is carried full term because the bigger the baby the more collagen and placenta, she said that is sometimes why China's government waits so long to force the abortion. My question is does this really go on? I use makeup almost every day and after hearing this I am truly devastated. :(
