Stop Illegally Harvesting Organs from Persecuted Religious Groups in China

scalpel

Target: President Obama

Goal: Speak out against and stop the organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners in China

Followers of the Falun Gong spiritual and meditation practice are violently suppressed in China. Hundreds of thousands of innocent people are held in prison camps where many are tortured and killed. Unlike other countries, China has no public organ donation system in place, yet the Chinese transplant system performs tens of thousands of transplants a year. In the U.S., it usually takes one to three years to obtain an organ. In China, it takes only one to three weeks. There is substantial evidence that military hospitals use jailed Falun Gong believers and other prisoners as a living organ donor banks, killed to support China’s growing organ transplant industry. Estimates indicate that tens of thousands of prisoners, with the vast majority being Falun Gong, have been killed for their organs.

The U.S. State Department’s Human Rights Report has cited allegations of organ harvesting from Falun Gong believers and other prisoners. A congressional hearing in 2012 entitled “Organ Harvesting of Religious and Political Dissidents by the Chinese Communist Party” presented evidence by numerous experts incriminating Chinese hospitals and doctors in the practice of forced organ harvesting from prisoners, which include practitioners of the Falun Gong spiritual discipline, Uighurs, Tibetans and Christians. Three Congressional hearings have been held to cover the topic and doctors from around the world have condemned this crime.

Such crimes against humanity are unacceptable. Killing unjustly imprisoned people for their organs is a gruesome breach of medical ethics and human rights. This petition asks the White House and President Obama to speak out and help stop this horrific practice.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Obama,

Americans and citizens of other countries around the world are extremely concerned about the forced organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners and other prisoners in China. This is a gruesome and barbaric practice that has been taking place in China for over a decade. Killing for body parts is a horrific violation of medical ethics. American and international medical communities and governments have taken steps to address China’s organ transplant exploitations and we ask that the United States government also take action against this atrocity.

Transplant abuses of this magnitude are crimes against humanity that people and governments from every country must condemn. This petition requests that President Obama calls on China to immediately end forced organ harvesting from detained Falun Gong practitioners and launch further investigations of human rights abuses in China.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Truly surreal, like the movie, ‘Coma’.

  2. On April 14, 2006, United States Department of State spokesman Sean McCormack claimed that, through field investigation, the United States has found no evidence to support the allegations of Falun Gong’s “organ harvesting”. Tt’s a rumor.
    Locating in downtown, the hospital is classified as second-level first-class, with no ability of “removing human organs” in the aspects of medical instruments, equipment level, physicians permission etc. Moreover, the hospital can not keep 6,000 people at all with only 300 beds, and the so-called cremator is just the general boiler of the hospital.

  3. It’s all fake! Now several years have passed, the report on harvesting organs alive in Sujiatun has turned into a laughing stock of international community.Falun Gong has always been spreading rumors around organ-harvesting and citing the so-called witnesses’ words.Locating in downtown, the hospital is classified as second-level first-class, with no ability of “removing human organs” in the aspects of medical instruments, equipment level, physicians permission etc. Moreover, the hospital can not keep 6,000 people at all with only 300 beds, and the so-called cremator is just the general boiler of the hospital.

    Falun Gong has always been spreading rumors around organ-harvesting and citing the so-called witnesses’ words. In fact, the identities of the two witnesses of the so-called “Sujiatun Concentration Camp” have been exposed. Annie, a 49-year-old Canadian, was formerly known as Anna Lewis.She was a bar dancer and lives in New Asia Plaza, Ottawa; Peter, whose former name is John Carter, a 43-year-old Chinese-American he had worked for a San Francisco Church before he was dismissed due to theft and stayed unemployed in 2007. After being suborned by Falun Gong,those two people appeared as witnesses of the so-called “Sujiatun Concentration Camp”.

  5. Regarding the organ harvesting allegations, the Chinese Embassy in Ottawa dismissed the claims as groundless and biased. The embassy called attention to a statement on its website which says reports of organ harvesting are rumours, which the Canadian public should not believe.

    It is very clear that Falun Gong’s rumour has ulterior political motives, the statement said.

    On October 27, 2011, Falun Gong publications are judged as extremism publications again by Wuyi District Court of Krasnodar City in Russia. Russian websites Sova-center.ru and Portal-credo.ru reported it on October 31 and November 2 respectively.

    The Court has investigated two Falun Gong books, Zhuan Falun and Report into Allegations of Organ Harvesting of Falun Gong Practitioners in China, and two Falun Gong newspapers, Falun Dafa in the World and Global Human Rights Torch Relay., All these materials are judged as extremism publications at last.
