OK, folks, I think it’s time to realize that this is maybe just a little bit more serious then some senator sending dirty text messages to his pages. China is killing people for their organs. I’ve been reading a lot about this stuff and there’s tons more evidence. I will do a follow up report on ENB soon but mean while, please get your head out of your ass and spread the word about this! read up on it. People are dying every day. This is something even Hitler didn’t think of!
EW YORK, October 4—As many as 40,000 Falun Gong practitioners who committed no crime have been secretly put to death in Chinese hospitals and their organs sold “on-demand,” investigators told a United States Congressional committee in Washington, DC last Friday. Worse still, little is being done to stop the ongoing killing.
“Time is very much of the essence on this issue,” former Canadian Secretary of State for Asia and the Pacific David Kilgour told the Congressional Subcommittee of Oversight and Investigations. “We believe that innocent men and women continue to be killed across China for their organs as commercial products.”
Kilgour and international human rights attorney David Matas introduced their investigative report on allegations of systematic organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners in China. (full report)
“All the evidence pointed in the same direction as our ultimate conclusion: the government of China in its hospitals, detention centers and other agencies in numerous parts of the country has over the past half decade put to death a large but unknown number of Falun Gong prisoners of conscience,” Kilgour said. “Most of the victims were convicted of nothing; they were murdered by medical professionals for their vital organs.”
Kilgour added that, according to one source, nearly 85 percent of the organs being used in a large Tianjin city transplant center are going to people who reside outside of China.
“Many such patients probably hope they are getting an organ from a convicted murderer or rapist,” Kilgour said. “In reality, it is probable that the organ is coming from a young Falun Gong prisoner, whose crime was to believe in ‘truth, compassion, and forbearance’.”
Also testifying were Erping Zhang, spokesperson for the Falun Gong, and Dr. Kirk Allison, of the University of Minnesota’s Program in Human Rights and Medicine. Dr. Allison stated, “The systematic program of ideological eradication of Falun Gong [by China’s regime] coincided with an inexplicable increase in whole organ transplantation, and international organ transplant tourism to China.”
Among the Kilgour-Matas report’s 17 recommendations is the suggestion that all countries discourage, if not outright prohibit, their citizens from obtaining transplants in China until the abominable organ harvesting practice is stopped. No country has yet begun implementing their recommendations.
Congressman Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), who chairs the hosting Subcommittee under the Committee on International Relations, expressed disappointment that the U.S. Department of State did not send a representative to the hearing.
Rohrabacher said that the practice of killing Falun Gong practitioners for their organs in China must now “get the attention of the American people.” (photos of hearing)
