Title: Chinese Harvest Organs From Healthy People
Post by: Titanscape on 29/03/2009 17:29:10
I read from the Falun Gong move in Sydney, that the Chinese government dislikes them in China, and some of them are harvested, that is doctors remove their vital organs and leave them to die.

Have you heard of this happening to religious groups in China?

It reminds me of Dr Who and the Cybermen. The scene where men off the street go in and are "upgraded" when there skulls are cut open and their live brains are transplanted into mechanism. And the creator of these cybermen thinks his idea is better for humanity.

China has denied a BBC report that organs taken from executed prisoners are sold for transplant.

The undercover BBC report said one hospital confirmed it could provide a liver for 50,000 ($94,400), and it could come from an executed prisoner.
