National Review: China Still Killing and Harvesting Organs from Falun Gong
(Minghui.org) National Review magazine published “China Still Killing and Harvesting Falun Gong,” an article written by lawyer and award winning author Mr. Wesley J. Smith, on May 5, 2015.
The article pointed at China's regime as a brutal tyranny because of its authoritarian policies such as the notorious one-child policy and the recently-exposed killings of political prisoners to sell their organs.
“The former Canadian MP David Kilgour has fought the killing for years. Even China had promised reform, but Falun Gong and Christians are still arrested, typed, slaughtered, and harvested.” Wesley Smith wrote.
He continued to list a small fraction of the evidence that Mr. Kilgour presented at a European Parliament workshop.
• Investigators made many calls to hospitals, detention centers and other facilities across China claiming to be relatives of patients needing transplants and asking if they had organs of Falun Gong for sale. We obtained on tape and then transcribed and translated admissions that a number of facilities trafficking in the Falun Gong organs provided.• Falun Gong prisoners, who later got out of China, testified that they were systematically blood-tested and organ-examined while in forced-labor camps across the country. This could not have been for their health since they were regularly tortured, but it is necessary for organ transplants and for building a bank of live “donors.”• In a few cases, family members of Falun Gong practitioners were able to see mutilated corpses of their loved ones between death and cremation. Organs had been removed.• Mr. Kilgour and others had interviewed the ex-wife of a surgeon from Sujiatun in Shenyang City, Liaoning. The surgeon told her that he had removed corneas from 2,000 Falun Gong prisoners between 2001 and 2003. He made it clear to her that none of these sources survived because different surgeons removed other organs and their bodies were then burned.• Mr. Kilgour cited a book, The Slaughter (Prometheus), that Ethan Gutmann places the persecution of the Falun Gong, Tibetan, Uyghur, and House Christian communities in context. It focuses mostly on Falun Gong, the group most viciously and continuously targeted since 1999.Gutmann explains how he arrives at his “best estimate” that organs of 65,000 Falun Gong and “two to four thousand” Uyghurs, Tibetans, and House Christians were “harvested” in the 2000-2008 period alone.
No “donors” survived pillaging because all vital organs are removed to be trafficked for high prices to wealthy Chinese nationals and “organ tourists.” This is shocking and intolerable, as is the dearth of effective international response.
