Helsinki: Exposing the CCP's Live Organ Harvesting at an International Medical Conference
(Clearwisdom.net) The 19th European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ECCMID) was held at the Helsinki Exhibition and Convention Centre in the Finnish capital from May 16 to 19, 2009, with over 7,000 doctors from all over the world in attendance. Falun Gong practitioners in Finland came to the venue to distribute leaflets exposing the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) hideous crime of organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners.
Practitioners called out to the doctors, "Come see what is happening in Chinese hospitals. The CCP is committing an appalling crime. Please help stop them!"
A lot of doctors accepted the leaflet and read it over. Many came over to the practitioners' display to make further inquiries.
One doctor said to us, "We saw your leaflet and we are all talking about it."
A doctor from Qatar accepted the leaflet and said, "I know Falun Gong. Now I know why organ transplants are so cheap in China. My brother has kidney disease and needs a transplant. But we will not go to China [for a transplant] because innocent people will become victims."
Two doctors asked while reading the leaflets, "Do they kill the practitioners first before taking their organs?" A practitioner answered, "No. Organs are harvested while the victims are still alive. This was exposed by a doctor who extracted 2,000 corneas from living people himself!"
A young doctor did not quite understand what was going on. A Chinese practitioner told her, "In China there is a terrible crime being committed. Innocent people are forced to have their organs harvested alive to meet the demand of wealthy patients. In 2001 when the mother of a good friend of mine obtained a kidney transplant, a dozen patients in her ward with similar diseases received kidney transplants one after another around the same time. Where did all those kidneys come from?" Before the practitioner could finish, the doctor offered, "There must be a live kidney bank!"
Initially, some doctors questioned the contents of the leaflets, asking, "Is this true?" Practitioners answered, "Go have a look on the Internet. Some Chinese hospitals advertised: 'Come and get a kidney transplants at our hospital. We guarantee that you will be back at work within a fortnight!'" Upon hearing this, the doctors shook their heads in disgust.
Some doctors confirmed that organ harvesting was being practiced in China. They knew people from many countries who went to China for transplants with incredibly fast organ matching. Some needed to re-do the transplants after the Chinese operation failed.
Many doctors who learned the facts commended the practitioners for their efforts to expose this crime.
During the congress, doctors often came out of the venue to enjoy the sunshine. Watching practitioners busily distributing leaflets, one of them came over and said, "How can we help?" A practitioner answered, "Learn more and speak out! Demand an independent investigation into the CCP's organ harvesting!"
