A recent report by medical experts entitled “Historical development and current status of organ procurement from death-row prisoners in China” states that organs from killed prisoners are still being utilized for transplantation in China”, while many Western medical transplant doctors believe that the practice no longer exists.
Whereas reports from both Chinese and Western media have been actively publicizing that the practice of killing prisoners has stopped in China, there has been no change in allowing access to Chinese transplant data. In fact, the only sources they have are derived from Chinese communist regime. That said, China reported organ “donations” and transplantation at a record high. The origins of these organs remain undisclosed.
It is a known fact that the “prisoners of faith” are usually the victims of an ongoing forced organ harvesting crime in China. For instance, independent investigations have found that tens of thousands of followers of a spiritual practice of Falun Gong (also known as Falun Dafa) have been murdered for the sale of their organs for transplantation since 2002. The research also explains that there is no public distinction between “criminal prisoners” and the “prisoners of conscience” in China. Many of them still remain at risk under the demand and ongoing exploitation of execution.
The persecution in China is not only killing lives but suppressing the very values which are essential to the health and well-being of people throughout the world.
