Forced Organ Harvesting
Forced organ harvesting is a crime against humanity; there have been shocking stories coming to light over the past few months about forced organ harvesting.
Organ harvesting is brutal, inhumane, and part of the global human trafficking crisis the world faces. The forced organ harvesting industry is believed to be a billion-dollar industry today. There have been many claims regarding forced organ harvesting coming out of China over the last few years.
There are claims that the Chinese Communist Party has and is still actively harvesting organs from prisoners and Chinese religious groups. Falun Gong practitioners are being executed so that their organs can be used for transplants. The Chinese Communist Party is being accused of these barbaric acts, and it is part of the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners and the financial incentives involved in the trade.
Falun Gong is meditation and qigong with moral philosophy; however, the Chinese Communist Party views Falun Gong as a potential threat due to its size, independence, and spiritual teachings, rooted in Buddist tradition. Many Falun Gong practitioners have been the targets of systematic torture, mass imprisonment, forced labor, and psychiatric abuse to change their beliefs.
It has been claimed that while Falun Gong practitioners are imprisoned, they will have numerous medical tests performed on them, including x-rays, blood tests, and tests focused on internal organs. Between 2000 and 2005, the source of 41 500 organ transplants was unexplained; it is believed these organs came from Falun Gong practitioners.
An unknown number of Falun Gong prisoners of conscience have been put to death by the Chinese Communist Party. According to a report by David Kilgour and David Matas, their vital organs, including kidneys, livers, corneas, and hearts, were seized involuntarily for sale at high prices as part of forced organ harvesting.
Senator Tom Cotton and Congressmen Chris Smith and Tom Suozzi announced the Stop Forced Organ Harvesting Act. Hopefully, this is one of many Acts and Bills that will be passed in the coming years, putting a stop to the forced organ harvesting of the Falun Gong practitioners.
We can not let this continue and need to bring awareness to forced organ harvesting; nobody deserves to be treated like an organ farm for the highest bidder.
