There has been a great shift in global public opinion concerning China. Up to a few months ago, China was viewed favorably. Its products were available everywhere and many countries moved their manufacturing base to China to capitalize on its lower cost of production and less stringent labor laws. In the name of growth, China's human rights record has been papered over by Federal, State, and local politicians and business leaders. That has changed due to China's handling of the Corona,or Wuhan Virus. We know now that China kept the world in the dark concerning the virus, allowing international flights out of China. This constituted an intentional act to spread the virus world-wide. We also know that China's Communist Party (CCP) corrupted the World Health Organization (WHO) so that the WHO's response served the CCP's interests. Americans have woken up to the fact that our politicians and business leaders have allowed us to become dependent upon China for vital goods, such as most of our drugs and medical supplies.
As the world's opinion of China changes, it would be a good time for me to bring to your attention a 2016 documentary, Hard to Believe. This well made documentary exposes China's evil practice of forced organ harvesting by the CCP, mainly on those who follow the religion called Falun Gong , but also among the Uighur Muslims and House Church Evangelical Christians. The CCP has a particular fear of the Falun Gong movement. According to journalist Ethan Guttman who is featured in Hard to Believe, at any one time, there are always around 1/2 to 1 million Falun Gong in Chinese labor camps. The CCP removes organs from these prisoners and sells them to foreigners willing to pay large sums to save themselves or loved ones. One former doctor, Enver Tohti, described how he and a medical team were directed to remove the organs of a prisoner who was to be executed. The prisoner was shot so as to avoid the heart. Canadian human rights lawyer David Matas states that people have paid up to $30,000 for corneas, $62,000 for kidneys, $130,000 for livers, and $160,000 for hearts. Matas estimates that 40,000 Chinese prisoners have been killed for their organs in a six year period. Israeli doctor Jacob Lavee discovered that these black market transplants were covered by medical insurance in Israel. Lavee and others led a successful campaign to end that practice. But in the United States, little has been done to end this barbaric behavior. How did this behavior become accepted? Money, money, and more money. Various western interests have sacrificed the moral duty to speak out against China's atrocities to the almighty dollar, or pound, or euro.
Hard to Believe runs 54:45. HT: I don't remember; I saved the link to Hard to Believe some time back. It could have been China Uncensored, or Helen Raleigh. A website on the CCP's horrific practices is Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting. My computer cannot connect to its website, so I'll provide its twitter address, @DAFOH_org
