no, it should not be illegal or judged beyond its "ick factor."

Why? It's gross, yes (my stomach tends to turn a little bit every time I open this thread). So is eating your own boogers. Is that also wrong on every level?

So, your agreement that it's disgusting means it shouldn't be allowed?

Yep. No reason to do that either.

it is strongly believed that the organ created by the woman's body to pass nutrients between mother and fetus and is expelled after birth is rich in chemicals that can help mitigate fluctuations in hormones believed to cause postpartum depression.
We have a mulit-billion dollar pharmecutical industry in this country. Can't one of them make a pill that does this? I bet broccoli has all those nutrients too. Broccoli is awesome. Broccoli > Placentas.

Then by all means, don't eat placenta.

Just don't tell someone else not to.

It seems to me like a psychological disorder when someone wants to control what a woman does with her body and its parts.

they did! the placenta pills. hence this thread. diamond's attached image of the actual placenta is misleading. the woman took capsules. why is that so disgusting?

i don't think it's acceptable for someone to shoot up herion or for a man to fellatio himself, would you attempt to label that as controling too?

if you do, i would say that we have a different value system is all, and most people in my country would agree w me, but not most ppl in this thread, and that's ok-although a bit troubling in the larger scheme of things.

Oh, I missed the part about the pills. I just read that she froze it and ate it. My bad.

the woman is ingesting placenta CAPSULES for the nutrients. i don't see how that is even comparable to shooting up heroin.

Yeah, I'm one of those "pro-choice anti-placenta" whackos. I make no sense. I know.

I tried Haggis for the first time a couple of weeks ago. That was a brave step for me - maybe placenta isn't too far behind? Wonders never cease. Right?

You have never been very good at comparisons.
In contrast to heroin or fellatio eating the placenta isn't harmful to the person. To the contrary, it helps the person.
There is no need to take control over everything just because we don't agree with something. And I think most people in your country will agree.

I've had vegetarian haggis! i think they threw some stuff together so it had the same texture/taste as the real stuff without the obvious ick factor of the organs used. it was pretty good! my dog seemed to prefer the original haggis though.

and Enter the Haggis rocks my world

Absolutely ridiculous non-analogy.

But, if a man can and wants to perform fellatio on himself, why the f**ck should I care??
