Unexplained Blood Testing of China's Prisoners of Conscience

We’re concealing the identity of this former prisoner of conscience to protect her family in China. She recently arrived in the United States, after being persecuted in Chinese labor camps for her beliefs. She practices Falun Gong—a spiritual discipline the Chinese Communist Party has been cracking down on since 1999.Human rights groups have documented severe torture and abuse of Falun Gong adherent. This includes the allegation of forced organ harvesting—whereby detained Falun Gong practitioners are killed for their organs. The organs are then sold for profit to transplant patients. One of the reasons investigators believe forced organ harvesting is taking place is because prisoners are regularly given physical exams and tested for their blood without any concern for their health.This woman said she did not know about the forced organ harvesting allegations while she was in labor camps. But she said the blood tests did indeed happen.[Falun Gong Practitioner]:“While I was being persecuted in the Masanjia Labor camp, and I think one day in the first half of 2008, some medical staff came, and drew our blood in a very professional manner. I asked them why they were taking our blood, what are the tests for? They didn’t tell us anything. One of the practitioners refused to cooperate, and seven people held her down in a bed, and covered her head with a pillow. They then drew a jar of blood from her feet, a jar this tall.”According to her, around 300 Falun Gong practitioners had their blood taken at that time.US-based medical doctor Wenyi Wang said taking this much blood would allow medical staff to check for the health of vital organs—organs that are sought after for transplants. [Dr Wenyi Wang, MD]:“Those in the medical field all know that to take this much blood is beyond a routine check-up. Instead, organ functions, analyses of liver functions, kidney and the heart can be done. This much blood would enable them to check how all the organs are functioning.”Overseas doctors have given accounts of their patients going to China for organ transplants. They’re promised extremely short waiting times, or even that an organ would be available for them on a specific day—suggesting hospitals have access to a pool of organs that can be matched to the patient.For more news and videos visit ☛ http://ntdtv.orgFollow us on Twitter ☛ us on Facebook ☛
