A ten-year long study has revealed that the Chinese Government have been executing millions of innocent prisoners in order to strip them of their organs.
Despite the government claiming they stopped carrying out the murders two years ago, experts believe they continue to kill between 60,000 to 100,000 prisoners of conscience every year in order to steal their hearts, livers and other organs for transplants.
According to The Independent, approximately 1.5 million members of Falun Gong have had their livers and kidneys removed at over 712 transplant centres across the country, with at least 300,000 of which taking place at unregulated centres, since 2000.
Falun Gong is a specific type of Chinese meditation.
Shockingly, surgeons were forced to carry out so many transplants everyday that they have simply ‘lost count’ – sometimes being asked to perform upwards of six liver removals in a day.
For years, it has been speculated that Falun Gong practitioners were being executed ‘on demand’ by the Chinese government, to compensate for the country’s shortage of organ donors.
However, only now have these rumours been found true, after a report was published in ‘Bloody Harvest: Revised Report into Allegations of Organ Harvesting of Falun Gong Practitioners in China’.
The findings were carried out by Canadian secretary of state David Kilgour, human rights lawyer David Matas, and journalist Ethan Gutmann.
The Chinese government claims they only carry out 10,000 organ transplants a year.
In a statement, Matas said:
We can easily surpass the official Chinese figure just by looking at the two or three biggest hospitals.
That increased discrepancy leads us to conclude that there has been a far larger slaughter of practitioners of Falun Gong for their organs than we had originally estimated.
The ultimate conclusion is that the Chinese Communist Party has engaged the state in the mass killings of innocents.
Just last year, Amnesty International confirmed that China continues to reign as the world’s largest executioner of prisoners in the charity’s annual report.
