The world stands by as organs harvested from Chinese prisoners

Well said Joan!

Anchorage, AK,USA - Published: June 1, 2007 - At the Alaska World Affairs Council program on April 27, Dr. Wenyi Wang, now an enemy of China, spoke to raise awareness of China's new transplant tourism market. She is a medical doctor and reporter for Epoch Times and has courageously spoken out for human rights in China and against the killing of Falun Gong practitioners there.

Both official and black market hospitals sell transplant organs for $20,000 to $180,000 each. A customer is guaranteed a match within one to four weeks. Political and other prisoners, including young practitioners who suddenly and mysteriously disappear, become live donors to this growing market for an international marketplace.

A small group of doctors and attorneys, mainly from the United States, Europe, Australia and New Zealand, have formed a coalition to increase global awareness of such medical crimes. Yet the international community and the United Nations say they need to do further investigations before reaching conclusions. Many are reluctant to speak out to object to Chinese communist practices because it would interfere with their business in China.

In the meantime, because China's central government profits greatly from transplant tourism, as it does from other national industries, the world pays China to build its economy and military with the blood and organs of its human resource bank. And the global community quietly tolerates a new form of genocide.
