China watchdog reveals horrific allegations of mass forced organ-harvesting by Martin M. Barillas for Life Site News
A human rights group reported to the U.N. that China harvests human organs from imprisoned dissidents, especially members of the proscribed Falun Gong religious group and Uighur Muslims.
Lawyer Hamid Sabi of the London-based China Tribunal told the U.N. Human Rights Council on Tuesday that China takes skin, kidneys, lungs, and hearts from members of the persecuted groups. He described the atrocity of “cutting out the hearts and other organs from living, blameless, harmless, peaceable people.” Sabi told the assembled U.N. delegates that his group has proof of the atrocities and claimed that it has evidence of China’s “crimes against humanity.” “Forced organ harvesting from prisoners of conscience, including the religious minorities of Falun Gong and Uighurs, has been committed for years throughout China on a significant scale,” Sabi said in a video published on the China Tribunal website.
Sabi told the U.N. council that China’s organ-harvesting has led to “hundreds of thousands of victims” in “one of the worst mass atrocities of this century.” China Tribunal did not specify how many organs have been harvested by China, nor how many victims came from each of the targeted groups. In June, China Tribunal published a report that found that a “very substantial number” of prisoners were “killed to order” by the Chinese government. The report claimed that prisoners were “cut open while still alive for their kidneys, livers, hearts, lungs, cornea and skin to be removed and turned into commodities for sale.”
“Victim for victim and death for death, cutting out the hearts and other organs from living, blameless, harmless, peaceable people constitutes one of the worst mass atrocities of this century,” Sabi said. He added, “Organ transplantation to save life is a scientific and social triumph, but killing the donor is criminal.”
