World Must Challenge CCP “Evil Conceptions” and End Forced Organ Harvesting: Representative Perry

The Chinese Communist Party has industrialized the killing of prisoners of conscience for their organs, and it must be stopped, a group of lawmakers from the United States and other countries said on International Human Rights Day. ‘man.

“These are living people having their organs harvested,” said U.S. Representative Scott Perry (R-Pa.) During a December 10 webinar hosted by Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting, a medical ethics group based in Washington.

“We have to challenge the evil designs of the Chinese Communist Party, which involves emphasizing its blind disregard for the basic standards of human decency,” he said.

The Chinese regime has for years engaged in forced organ harvesting from prisoners of conscience on a “substantial scale,” an independent people’s court found in 2019. The practice is to harvest organs from prisoners of their own. alive and then selling them to locals and tourists looking for transplants, a horrific business that generates significant payoffs for the regime and those involved.

The main source of these organs are imprisoned Falun Gong practitioners, the court found, adding that it had found no evidence that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) had stopped its practice.

Falun Gong is a spiritual discipline comprising a set of moral teachings based on the principles of truthfulness, compassion and tolerance, as well as a set of meditative exercises. It drew an estimated 70 to 100 million adherents in China in 1999, when the regime saw its widespread popularity as a threat and ordered a massive campaign to eradicate the group.

Millions of the group suffered in various torture and detention centers over the next two decades.

Perry, who described the CCP’s persecution of Falun Gong adherents as “evil and evil,” said that in the next few days he would unveil a bill to hold perpetrators of forced organ harvesting to account.

Entitled the Falun Gong Protection Act, the bill would push the Chinese regime to “abandon its cruel and regressive extermination program” of the faith group, whether through forced organ harvesting, unjust imprisonment, or forced labor, Perry said.

“Commercialized murder”

A controversial exhibition titled “Real Bodies” touring the world, featuring plastic-coated body parts from China, has also raised troubling questions. The plastinated body parts are from Dalian, a city in northeast China known for the severity of the persecution campaign against Falun Gong.

Philip Hunt, a member of the UK House of Lords, recalled such an exhibit on display in his hometown of Birmingham in 2018. Although advertised as a ‘thought-provoking’ way to ‘explore the inner workings of the human form, ”these bodies were being used without clear evidence of his consent, he said. He added that until 2013, Dalian housed a forced labor camp tasked with torturing Falun Gong inmates.

Hunt introduced the ‘Organ Tourism and Exposed Corpses Bill’ aimed at ending the ‘terrible traveling circus of body shows’ and preventing UK citizens from traveling to China for organ transplants . The bill passed second reading in the House of Lords in July, but has yet to pass.

“The commercial exploitation of body parts in all its forms is certainly unethical and unsavory. When combined with massacres by an authoritarian state, we cannot stand idly by and do nothing, ”Hunt told the panel.

Forced organ harvesting, he said, is “a commercialized murder and, without a doubt, one of the worst crimes.”

Unlike the CCP’s oppression of Uighurs and other Muslim minorities in Xinjiang, which has been viewed as genocide by various official bodies, the regime’s persecution of Falun Gong has not been adequately addressed, according to the government. Perry. Some experts have described the campaign, including the CCP’s organ harvesting, as genocidal.

A definition of the nature of the regime’s campaign against Falun Gong is “sorely lacking” in US policy in China, Perry said. His bill would push the US State Department to formally decide whether the persecution constitutes crimes against humanity and genocide, he said.

To end this continuing abuse, those with freedom must speak out, said Canadian parliamentarian Garnett Genuis. Genius’ grandmother is a Holocaust survivor and would not have lived without the help of friendly locals who provided shelter and vigorously opposed the murder, he said.

After World War II, the world vowed to “never again” let this kind of horrific abuse repeat itself. But he failed. He now has the responsibility “to step in while we still can, to do what we can to keep that promise,” said Genuis.

Annick Ponthier, a Belgian politician, first heard about organ harvesting in 2020 after watching the 2019 court ruling. Now she wants her country, and the European Union as a whole, to end the organ harvesting. investment agreements with China to avoid becoming “accomplices in the great crimes they are committing,” Ponthier said.

The Beijing authorities “have no respect for human life if these lives do not advance their internal communist agenda and their ambitions to become a world superpower,” Ponthier said.

With the regime having no intention of limiting its authoritarian model within Chinese borders, she said, a position against the Chinese Communist Party “becomes a position for human rights in the world.”
