If a Beggar's Organs Can be Taken While the Beggar is Still Alive...
(Clearwisdom.net) In a society ruled by the Chinese Communist Party, Chinese people's lives are worthless. However, with the progress of modern medicine, people's lives are becoming priceless to the Party now. Beggars in torn clothes, people with mental retardation, prisoners that receive the death sentence, and Falun Gong practitioners that are illegally detained--those who used to be ignored by the Party are now precious. Actually, to put it more accurately, their lives are still worthless, but their bodies are precious.
On July 3, 2007, the Intermediate Court of Shijiazhuang City in Hebei Province publicly heard an unusual case. The indictment said, "On the night of November 9 2006, defendant Wang Chaoyang together with Wang Xiaohui, Liu Huimin, and Wang Yongliang who are still at large, abducted beggar Tong Gefei. They tied him up and took him to a house at an abandoned transformer substation to the south of Shangfang Village in Xingtang County. Wang Chaoyang illegally locked down Tong with tools he had prepared earlier. Then Wang Chaoyang contacted Doctor Chen Jie discussing details for selling and purchasing organs. Around 5 a.m. on the morning of November 15 2006, Wang Chaoyang strapped Tong to death. He told Doctor Chen Jie and a few other doctors that Tong was a criminal and that he was just executed upon his death sentence. He asked those doctors to take Tong's kidneys and livers and other organs. Wang Chaoyang then received a payment of 14,800 yuan."
From beggar Tong Gefei's death, we can tell something about the newly emerging organ harvesting in China that can produce sudden huge profits.1. Does "organ harvesting from live people" really exist?
On August 21 2007, xinhuanet.com published the "The Death of a Beggar" article. However, it didn't report the fact that Tong Gefei was alive when the doctors took his organs. According to the report published on July 24 by the newspaper Yangcheng Night, defendant Wang Chaoyang said at the trial, "When the doctors were taking organs out of Tong's body, Tong suddenly raised his arm and scratched the arm of the doctor. Another doctor then stepped on Tong's arm. Soon they finished."
In fact, it is very critical to acquire high-quality organs for successful organ transplants. Taking organs from live people is ideal in order to ensure high-quality organs. When killing prisoners that received death sentences in China, they would fire a gun from close distance and not directly into the brain. Therefore, the prisoners would be in a deep coma state. As for the beggar case, Wang Chaoyang was planning to have Tong's organs taken and therefore it made sense that he wanted to keep Tong alive for the doctors.2. What is the surgery environment like when taking organs from people alive?
Many people would imagine that organ harvesting should happen at some high-class sterilized hospital. However, take Tong's case for example, it was at an abandoned house. Per the report on the Yangcheng Night newspaper, "With the light from a flashlight, the organs were taken out very smoothly. It took about twenty minutes."
We can tell that the surgery condition was extremely poor. There was no sterilization. Everything was primitive.3. What does it mean when the doctors report a case?
The role of the doctors in this case is somewhat difficult to define. Nobody would believe that they didn't know the truth when they took Tong's organs when he was alive. Their reporting of the case shows that they were afraid as killing a beggar is a crime.
Then what about the fact that doctors take organs from live prisoners that have received a death sentence? Why weren't there any reports on this? Because the doctors don't think that's a crime. The Chinese Communist Party claims Falun Gong practitioners are its biggest enemy. Therefore, practitioners don't even have the rights of common prisoners that receive death sentences. This wicked Party has demonized Falun Gong practitioners to be the most despicable group of people. Do doctors feel guilty when they harvest organs from practitioners when they are alive? At least, they wouldn't worry about the potential legislative responsibilities. The doctors in Tong's case didn't have this kind of security. Maybe this was their motivation for reporting the case.
Since last year, media outside of China have exposed the fact that the Chinese Communist Party has been harvesting organs from Falun Gong practitioners when they were alive. There has been a lot of proof. However, still many people found it too hard to believe. Now the media of the Chinese Communist Party have reported the death of a beggar. This can serve as proof from the Party itself about the inhumane organ harvesting performed on live Falun Gong practitioners.
We have to think about why the Chinese Communist Party exposed the death of Tong at this time. They pushed all the responsibilities to the "loser" Wang Chaoyang, while not pressing any charges against the doctors who reported the case. They even praised the doctors for their acts. This could be because they were trying to find some scapegoats for harvesting organs from Falun Gong practitioners when they were alive.
In fact, since the exposure of organ harvesting by the international media, the organ sources have diminished dramatically at hospitals in China. According to "Southern Weekends," in 2006 the Tianjin Oriental Organ Transplanting Center hit a record by finishing 600 liver transplant cases in one year. However, up to today in 2007 when more than half a year has passed, the self proclaimed "largest organ transplanting center in Asia" has only performed 15 liver transplants. Zhu Zhijin, the associate Director of the Center's Standing Committee said, "It was due to the low supply of the source organs."
Naturally we have this question - where did those 600 liver organs come from in 2006? Isn't it a very basic request by the Falun Gong practitioners to ask the Chinese Communist Party to allow independent organizations to investigate this?
