Five pieces of undeniable evidence of forced organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners in China
1. Big jump in organ transplants in China coincides with beginning of persecution of Falun Gong (Falun Dafa).
The number of organ transplants increased immediately after the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) started persecuting Falun Gong in China on July 20, 1999. Over the past ten years, China has conducted more than 90,000 various organ transplant operations, providing a huge revenue and profit for the second largest economy in the world.
Let’s use liver transplants as an example:
According to Chinese government statistics, there were only 78 liver transplants done nationwide from 1991 to 1998.
In 1999, 2000 and 2001, however, there were 118, 254 and 486 liver transplants in China, respectively.
In 2003, the number of liver transplant operations grew to over 3,000.
According to the China Medical Organ Transplant Association, there were nearly 4,000 liver transplant operations performed in China in 2005.
In other countries, a patient has to wait for a long time to get a suitable organ. In the past in China, the patient was always expected to wait for the needed organs to become available, but now in China, the needed organs wait for the patient, which begs the question: Where does this huge supply of organs come from?
2. A marked number of Falun Gong practitioners go missing at the same time that there is a rapid increase in the number of organ transplant operations in China.
After reports emerged of numerous people disappearing, it became a key to solving this sinister crime: the Chinese Communist Party sanctioned forced organ harvesting from imprisoned Falun Gong practitioners and other prisoners of conscience and members of other religious and ethnic minority groups . As a result, two apparently separate incidents – the large number of missing Falun Dafa followers and the rapid growth of Chinese organ transplants – are connected.
3. China’s lack of transparency regarding the source of organs for transplantation. Organ transplants in China are performed without revealing the identity of the donor.
Neither the patients nor their agent in China is informed about the source of the organs that they are getting.
4. Incredibly short average waiting periods of only one to two weeks, compared to waiting periods ranging from two to three years in other countries, coincided with the beginning of the persecution of Falun Gong in China (July 1999).
5. Admission of the regime’s representative and the testimony of witnesses.
At a meeting with the press, Huang Jiefu, former Chinese Vice-Minister of Health, said that the major source of organs comes from executed prisoners...
David Kilgour, co-author of the book Bloody Harvest and a former Canadian Secretary of State for Asia-Pacific, tells the story of a patient who went to China for a kidney transplant. Back in 2003, a 32-year-old man received a kidney transplant at the No.1 People's Hospital in Shanghai. Due to an antibody problem, he received four kidneys in eight days, but all of them were rejected. Three months later, he returned to the hospital and received four more kidneys and finally was given one that his body did not reject. Eight people were murdered in this process.
Since China’s wait times have reduced so dramatically, the nation has turned into a center for global organ transplant tourism.
Article 35 and 36 of the Chinese Constitution stipulate that Chinese citizens have freedom of speech and freedom of belief. However, the CCP controls the government and knowingly violates the law and illegally persecutes Falun Gong practitioners and other different groups for their beliefs, violating the Constitution.
One of the most fundamental reasons for the brutal persecution of Falun Gong in China stems from the practitioners’ faith in the principles of truthfulness, compassion and tolerance. These universal values lie in direct opposition to the ideology of the Communist Party, which thrives on lies, corruption and violence.
