Where you’ll have your organs removed for waiting “transplant tourists.”
As reported by the Epoch Times, Chinese officials began persecuting the 100 million practitioners of Falun Gong in July 1999, and have continued to do so ever since. To the Chinese communists, there is no such thing as a religious deity or belief, because communists insist that their form of government should be the only thing requiring loyalty and faithfulness.
Not long ago this kind of treatment of Chinese “dissidents” would draw loud rebukes from the U.S. government, the United Nations and various human rights organizations around the world, as well as major media coverage. But since the Chinese manufacturing economy has become such an integral part of the economies of most of the world’s advanced countries, outrage has been muted.
The lack of outrage and subsequent media coverage and pressure by governments has essentially given the Chinese communists a green light to treat Falun Gong – and anyone else deemed a political dissident – in any barbaric way they choose.
‘A new form of evil’
Hence, the creation of a cottage industry of sorts – Transplant Tourism. As the Epoch Times noted, this is essentially “murder on demand” for an organ that is purchased ahead of time by someone who then travels to China for a transplant operation. It is a huge source of revenue both for the Chinese military and for private hospitals around the country, according to Nobel Prize nominees and investigators David Matas, an international human rights attorney, and David Kilgour, a former Canadian foreign secretary for Asia-Pacific.
Matas and Kilgour published their first investigative report in 2006, and evidence about forced harvesting of organs in China from prisoners of conscience has only mounted in the years since. The investigators found that the overwhelming majority of the pool of victims did not come from prisoners sentenced to death but rather from prisoners of conscience, primarily followers of Falun Gong – the largest group in China’s prisons.
In their 2006 report, Matas described the systematic harvesting of organs from Falun Gong adherents by the Chinese Communist Party as “a new form of evil we have yet to see on this planet.”
One of the founding board members of Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting (DAFOH), Dr. Dana Churchill, spoke at rallies in Los Angeles and Santa Monica Beach earlier this month. She said that to this point the world had never witnessed a “more horrific and barbaric crime as the Chinese Communist Party has committed against Falun Gong.”
‘Crime against humanity’
She added that it wasn’t just Falun Gong adherents who were being victimized, however. Others include Christians, the Uyghurs and Tibetans, all of whom have also had their organs harvested “while they are alive, unwilling, and between 20 and 40 years old, the prime of their life,” Churchill – a naturopathic doctor from Pasadena, Calif., said.
Epoch Times noted that recently released findings on the number of Chinese prisoners who have been murdered go way beyond original estimates collected from various investigators and organizations.
Churchill said: “With Falun Gong, approximately 65,000 have been murdered, and that is according to DAFOH, our organization.”
At a Washington, D.C., rally on July 17, 2015, following nine years of investigation, the World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong announced that it had “concluded that since July 20, 1999, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), lead by its former head Jiang Zemin, has utilized China’s entire state apparatus to harvest organs from living Falun Gong practitioners,” as a way to “physically destroy” the group as a whole.
“This is genocide and a crime against humanity,” the organization concluded.
