Laws were fundamentally made to help uplift the oppressed. The government is supposed to be an organization that helps curb what the law does not permit. The Chinese government, however, was never popular for its laws of the land, and a ten-year long study now shows that it has been executing millions of members of the Falun Gong in prison, people who were imprisoned on unlawful grounds, for the purpose of stealing their organs.
Falun Gong is a specific type of Chinese meditation made popular by Master Li in 1992. It was an instant hit, until 1999 when they suddenly began to be seen as enemies of the state. Practitioners were sent to ‘reform through labour’ camps where they were beaten, starved and tortured with electric batons. By 2008, there were over 3000 documented cases of people being killed by state persecution.
The Chinese government today makes claims that they no longer carry out such murders, but evidence exists of China killing 60,000 to 100,000 prisoners of conscience every year, in order to steal their livers, hearts and other organs for transplants. 1.5 million members of Falun Gong have been operated upon in over 712 transplant centres. Out of these, at least 300,000 take place in unregulated centres since the year 2000.
Surgeons have been asked to conduct at least six liver removals a day. They say they have lost count of the number of people they have operated upon.
Rumours of China’s Falon Gong prisoners being tortured and then executed ‘on demand’ by the Chinese government to meet the dearth of organ donors in their country have proven to be true by a recently published report.
‘Bloody Harvest: Revised Report into Allegations of Organ Harvesting of Falun Gong Practitioners in China,’ published by Canadian Secretary of State David Kilgour, human rights lawyer David Matas, and journalist Ethan Gutmann has brought this issue to the forefront once again.
China has denied the claims, saying that only 10, 000 organ transplants are conducted every year. Matas outrightly negated the claim saying that it could be proven false just by looking at the figures of two or three of the biggest hospitals in China. This discrepancy in figures shows that the slaughter of Falun Gong members for their organs has been much more than was estimated. According to these reports, the Chinese Communist Party has engaged in mass killing of innocents, to meet their organ-donor needs.
