China’s “commercialized murder” in the organ transplant industry must end, British officials say

On September 19, several politicians from around the world take turns summiting to condemn China’s continued practice of killing prisoners of conscience and to supply the harvested organs to the transplant market. Promoted scale activities.

“Organ donation is a valuable life-saving act, but forced removal of organs is a commercialized murder and arguably one of the worst crimes,” said Philip Hunt, MP and former UK Minister of Health. Sir says.

Hunt said in Third webinar Report of the World Summit on the Fight and Prevention of Forced Organ Removal. The summit, hosted by five NGOs, including the Advocacy Group’s Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting (DAFOH), began on September 17th. Next online event It will be held on September 24th.

“I hope this event will inspire many people around the world to take positive action against this crime,” Hunt said.

China is one of the preferred destinations for people in need of an organ transplant because Chinese hospitals can quickly (sometimes in days or weeks) find matching organs. Beijing’s explanation that there was a seemingly sufficient supply of organs was that it had a voluntary organ donation system and that there were many registered organ donors in China.

The Chinese story was unveiled in 2019. An independent London-based court has revealed after years of a year-long investigation that China has been undergoing state-approved forced organ removal “on a significant scale.”

In addition, the referee stated that the organs were sourced from imprisoned Falun Gong practitioners and were “certainly” a “probably the primary source.”

Falun Gong practitioners, also known as Falun Dafa, have been the target of persecution by the Chinese administration since July 1999. A petition for forced organ removal from a detained Falun Gong practitioner was first revealed in 2006.

Hunt pointed out efforts to promote a new English law called the Organ Tourism and Exhibit Bill to ensure that British citizens “cannot travel to countries such as China for organ transplants.”

He added that the bill “protects British citizens from complicity in forced organ removal.”

“that is [the bill] Act as a precedent for further action in both of these countries [the UK] And all over the world, “Hunt added.

In the United States, new legislation has been introduced in both the Senate and the Senate (S.602) And the house (HR1592) In March to combat forcible organ removal and human trafficking. The House Bill currently has 31 co-sponsors from both parties.

If approved, the US Government may refuse or revoke the passports of people engaged in the illegal purchase of organs. It will also ban the US export of organ transplant surgical devices to foreign entities related to crime.

A similar US law was introduced in the last Congress last December.

“I defend China’s human rights and prevent illegal and inhumane trade in human organs from prisoners of conscience in China to the EU and the United States, and to all other representatives and communities in the free world. “I call on you,” said Swedish lawmaker Anne. -Sophie Alm at the webinar on Sunday.

Andre Gatlin, vice chairman of the French Senate Foreign Affairs, Defense and Military Commission, explained in the webinar that some politicians chose to remain silent because of the threat of China.

“Questioning the deportation of organs in China clearly exposes itself to bitter and resentful denials, and sometimes even the threat of commercial or political retaliation from Beijing. “Gatlin said.

“Therefore, rather than being limited to France, it’s a terrifying’silent diplomacy’,” Gatlin added.

US Rep. Steve Chabot (Republican) calls China’s forced organ harvesting “one of the most barbaric practices in human history,” and if the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) can express its view, it will tell the webinar audience about the dark future. I warned. About human rights to other parts of the world.

He states: “A world that conforms to the values ​​of the Chinese Communist Party is a world where people who do not lead the party line can be put in concentration camps and their organs can be removed.

“It’s a vision of a world where no one wants to live, and it’s a vision of a world where we’re all fighting.”
