Forced organ harvesting in China -- It's being called "abhorrent" and a "crime against humanity." Allegations of forced organ harvesting in China started to surface in 2006. Since then, mounting evidence suggests these allegations are true—and even worse than originally suspected.
Prisoners of conscience—especially Falun Gong—are being killed for their organs.
Starting in 1999, the number of #TransplantCenters in #China increased by 300% in just 8 years, even though China has no effective national organ donation system. 1999 was the year the Chinese regime began persecuting adherents of the Falun Gong spiritual practice, sending hundreds of thousands to labor camps. Many of them were never seen again.
EVIDENCE OF KILLING FALUN GONG PRACTITIONERS FOR ORGANS
The Chinese authorities have admitted to having harvested organs from death-row prisoners for many years, and this is widely accepted as fact in Non-Govermental Organization and diplomatic circles. This refers to criminal prisoners who have been sentenced to death by courts for (in most cases) violent crimes.
But the allegations now being discussed go beyond that. The allegations are that Chinese authorities, including those affiliated with military and paramilitary hospitals, have been extrajudicially killing Falun Gong practitioners and other prisoners of conscience, those guilty of no other crime than belonging to a religious or ethnic identity that the Party has targeted for destruction.
HOW MUCH ARE YOU WORTH?
One of the problems in gaining the widespread acceptance of this allegation has been that, for some years now, there has been so much evidence of a complex character, and an unwillingness in some sectors to consider the evidence. The primary source materials that must be marshaled, parsed, and assembled into arguments are often in Chinese, typically complex, and sometimes difficult to even find. Moreover, one piece of evidence only takes on significance in the context of other pieces.
The argument can be summarized as follows:
Prior to 2000, organ transplantation in China was a relatively niche medical treatment, primarily reserved for Communist Party officials.
The source of organs was almost exclusively prisoners who had been found guilty of capital crimes and sentenced to death (hereafter referred to as “death-row prisoners”), though Uyghurs and some political prisoners were also subjected to organ harvesting.
From 2000 onward, a tectonic shift began in China’s transplant sector. This is evidenced by a massive expansion in transplant capacity and capability — as measured by metrics such as these:
~ The number of hospitals performing transplant surgeries ~ Beds devoted to transplants in those hospitals ~ The number of doctors and nurses trained in transplant medicine (many of whom received their training overseas) ~ Improved patient survival times ~ Significant expansion in basic and clinical research in transplantation biology and immunosuppressive medicines ~ The establishment of numerous transplant centers in hospitals ~ The growth of the domestic immunosuppressant manufacturing industry via state subsidies ~ The variety of organ transplants performed (as measured by organ type and surgical method) ~ The sheer number of transplants performed
Alongside this growth in transplants performed, there was also the rise of “on-demand” transplants. This means waiting times of mere weeks for patients to receive transplants, or in many cases, mere days or hours.
In short, the great shift post-2000 was that many more transplants were being done and much faster.
Increasingly, doctors, congressmen, international politicians, human rights lawyers, journalists, and people around the world are raising awareness about forced organ harvesting.
