China's obscene 'harvest' of organs

By Aussiegirl

There are still those today who demand absolute proof and refuse to believe the credible stories emerging from China over the horrific trafficking in organs from live donors. Just like the New York Time's Walter Duranty refused to see evidence of the Ukrainian famine in the thirties, just like the world turned a blind eye to reports of the extermination camps during Hitler's reign, it's so easy to demand to see absolute proof when one is dealing with a completely closed and repressive society. The amazing thing is that information like this does leak out no matter how hard the authorities try to hide it. The world must pay attention. The administration in its eagerness to do business with China has settled for a Potemkin visit to a model camp and pronounced that there is no problem. History will judge them harshly.

TorontoSun.com - Peter Worthington - China's obscene 'harvest' of organs

Although we live in times of selective concern about human rights, every so often a horror occurs that is so abominable that the world takes note.

A monstrous example of "inhumanity for profit" seems underway in China today, of which much of our mainstream media are not yet aware, or don't find credible because of unimaginable revulsion.

It is increasingly substantiated that the Chinese government is maintaining concentration camps and special prisons linked to hospitals, to "harvest" the organs of dissenters for sale to foreigners and those who can afford to pay.

Protests by Falun Gong supporters have had no effect in Ottawa, and limited effect in Washington. Ottawa, apparently bent on making money from China, seems to be ignoring the organ transplant racket, just as our governments have ignored cultural genocide in Tibet, threats towards Taiwan, human rights abuses and subversion and intimidation of Chinese people in Canada.

Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, and even the U.S. Senate are starting to pay attention.

The newspaper Epoch Times, published in some 60 countries, first reported about organ transplant prisons and quoted various witnesses, including a Chinese undercover reporter for a Tokyo newspaper; a doctor who performed cornea transplants from live victims and other workers.

China has long sold the organs of criminals on death row, but only recently has it been learned that of some 6,000 Falun Gong believers in Sujiatun death camp in the Northeastern city of Shenyang, none has emerged alive. An estimated 3,000 inmates have had organs removed and their bodies cremated.

I think it's absolutely shameful that Peter Worthington insists on perpetuating the discredited China concentration camp allegation?

How do I know? I emailed him the evidence:

US government announced finding of its investigation - no evidence of concentration camp:


"Officers and staff from our embassy in Beijing and consulate in Shenyang have visited the area and the specific site mentioned in these reports on two separate occasions," McCormack said.

"In these visits the officers were allowed to tour the entire facility and grounds and found no evidence that the site is being used for any function other than as a normal public hospital."

This finding was reported by The Australian weeks prior:


"It appears the claims by Falun Gong have been at least substantially exaggerated. Initial investigations by researchers for a US congressional committee have identified the site at Sujiatun as a hospital, where it is suspected organ harvesting occurs but on nowhere near the scale claimed"
