…once again, I’ll put up a big, honkin’ WARNING.
I’m going to be asking a question about a medical “experiment” performed by Japanese “doctors” during the Rape of Nanking.
If this type of subject disturbs you, read no further. Just…don’t. Go read Cafe Society, go walk the dog, hug your children, do ANYTHING but read what’s to follow.
I’m not kidding. I’ll swear to any deity you can name, I’m not kidding.
…I seem to recall reading in the newspaper—I think it was an article about the book “The Rape of Nanking,” when it was first published—of a particularly horrific medical experiment performed by Unit-731 in Nanking. Basically, Chinese women were taken prisoner, raped until they were pregnant, and then infected with various biological agents. Then, a transparent “window” was surgically implanted in the abdomen, so the effects of the infection on the developing fetus could be directly observed.
:eek: :Holy 'f’ing F:
Now, what I’m asking is, are my memories of that article accurate—was such an “experiment” actually performed, as described?
