Placentaphagy and Embryophagy: An Analysis of Socially Deviant Behavior within Gender, Families, or the Home

Carmen M. Cusack J.D.


This paper concludes that the private, eccentric acts of placentophagy and embryophagy are not illegal. First, this paper proves that for the most part, anthropophagy is not illegal in the United States. Second, this paper will argue that placentophagy and embryophagy in the home are legal anthropophagic acts; and that the policy and politics, not law, are the only obstacles for some women who question their right to consume human blood and tissue.
