China Harvesting Organs of Christians in Jail
Pulpit & Pen first brought to reporting regarding China’s human rights abuses that include harvesting the organs of Christians in prison for medical research and organ transplant back in September of last year.
According to a finding yesterday by the Independent People’s Tribunal in London, China is continuing the practice.
The tribunal was chaired by Sir Geoffrey Nice, who formerly had led the prosecution of war criminal, Slobodan Milosevic of Yugoslavia. The findings again confirm the assessment by human rights groups that China is putting people in jail for Christianity and other crimes of conscience and then taking their organs to sell.
As Pulpit & Pen has previously reported, the China Tribunal, which is an “independent, international people’s tribunal” is investigating claims that China is harvesting the organs of religious minorities.
A lawyer for the tribunal, Hamid Sabi, said, “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, and that it continues today.”
The Falun Gong, reference by Hamid Sabi, is a meditation-focused religious teaching drawn from the traditions of both Buddhism and Taoism, but it is persecuted inside China. Although most American are not aware of the Falun Gong, they may be aware of the publication, The Epoch Times, which is heavily influenced by the religious movement and founded by its supporters. It is a peaceful religion.
However, Christians are also often targeted by the Chinese Communist state. Without a doubt, their organs continue to be harvested for the profit of the Chinese government.
