Police Forcibly Draw Blood from 70-year-old Falun Gong Practitioner and Threaten to “Eliminate You All”
(Minghui.org) A 70-year-old Falun Gong practitioner in Shanghai had her home broken into and her blood forcibly drawn by the police on August 2, 2020.
Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa, is an ancient spiritual and meditation discipline. It has been persecuted by the Chinese communist regime since 1999. In addition to relentless torture and long prison terms, many practitioners were killed and had their organs extracted by the authorities to fuel the lucrative transplant industry in China.
In recent years, many practitioners across the country have had their blood samples forcibly collected by the authorities, likely for a massive DNA bank and organ matching database.
Four officers knocked on Ms. Shen Fang’s home on the morning of August 2. When she refused to open the door, they called in a locksmith and forcibly opened her door.
The four officers, all strong men, held Ms. Shen down and grabbed her arm to draw her blood. Ms. Shen resisted and asked why they were doing that to her. One officer responded, “This is a national policy!”
Another officer shouted at Ms. Shen, while covering his police badge, that “We just won’t follow the law and we are going to eliminate you all!”
The officers made several pricks on Ms. Shen’s arms as they attempted to draw blood from her. They left after finally collecting her blood sample.
