About Forced Organ Harvesting


Where and how does it happen?

Evidence that has emerged since 2006 tells a terrible tale of murder and mutilation in China. Witnesses and Chinese physicians reveal that thousands of persons who practice Falun Gong are being killed for their organs, which are sold and transplanted at enormous profit. The kidneys, livers, and hearts are often sold on demand to overseas patients, who can afford them. 

That is, the prisoners of conscience are tissue typed and then killed once a matching recipient is found for their organs. 

The perpetrators are officials of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), acting in cahoots with surgeons, prison authorities, and military officials. Victims are held in concentrations camps prior to dissection, after which the bodies’ remains are immediately cremated. 

There is no tradition of organ donation in China because Chinese believe that the body should be returned to the earth whole; therefore the fact that so many alleged organ "donations" claimed by the CCP raises a red flag.

Falun Gong supporters and human rights activists overseas immediately began investigating the allegations. Later, prominent Canadian human rights lawyers launched their own investigation. Then in July 2006, former Secretary of State for Asia Pacific David Kilgour and renowned Canadian human rights attorney David Matas, published their own 140-page report. It drew the regrettable conclusion that the allegations are true.

Why are Falun Dafa practitioners the main target of organ harvesting?

By way of introduction, please watch this short, award-winning documentary.

The systematic persecution of religious and spiritual groups is well documented in communist China. Throughout its history, Chinese Communist Party has periodically generated terror among the Chinese population to cement its power. It pits the majority against a vilified minority to maintain psychological control over citizens. It achieves this through propaganda, violence, and economic disenfranchisement. 

Beginning in 1999, the then-head-of-state Jiang Zemin, ordered the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners, which at the time numbered at least 100,000,000 in China. What ensued was the illegal arrest, secret imprisonment without trial, torture, rape, and death of countless Chinese citizens.

With a large population of healthy meditators in their prisons and labor camps, it was not long before the Chinese regime found a lucrative way to destroy the evidence of this brutal persecution—thus forced organ harvesting began.
