Falun Gong enthusiasts volunteer for live organ donation

Filed under: China,Our World — iknowkeith @ 11:28 am

In a truly selfless act, several Falun Gong enthusiasts have returned to China after a period of exile to share vital organs with needy foreign patients.

According to Falun Dafa Information Center, on May 14, 2007, U.N. Refugee Gao Chunman, former professor of China Tsinghua University, went to Moscow from his home in St. Petersburg and helped on a plane to Beijing by Russian authorities.

After his return to China, Gao is likely to participate in a voluntary donation program intended to help foreign patients. The new program gives political prisoners the opportunity to share themselves in a unique way and pay back society for their controversial beliefs.

Foreigners needing replacement organs can now travel to China for transplants. There they are likely to receive organs culled from volunteers who are alive when their corneas, kidneys, livers and hearts are harvested, then left to die, according to an international group of doctors.

In a new twist on an old practice of using organs from executed criminals, China has turned to living donors (mostly outlawed Falun Gong members) to supply a growing trade in medical transplants, Doctors Against Organ Harvesting said Thursday during a public forum held at the University of Toronto.

Naturally, the volunteers receive free cremation for their participation in this life-saving program.

One man has spoken out against this act of generosity. “Medicine cannot be practiced by killing innocent people like chickens,” he said. Of course this is silly. Practitioners of live organ harvesting do not cut off the donors heads and watch them run around “like chickens”.
That would be gross.

  1. This is a very serious gross violation of any human beings rights. it is a new form of evil on the planet today.While your links a re valid i think your sense of humor on this issue is tragic and I hope it does not lead others to think that Falun Gong volunteer their organs to redeem themselves.

    PLease reprint the truth with out the macabre humor on such gross violations. If it was your family that had suffered in this way how would feel?

  3. This is a terrible demonstration of the human mind misery! We are all gonna die no matter from what – a lack of an organ or something else, but treating this fundamental problem as a game is an indication that people really deserve their death!

  4. Wow! I guess not everyone appreciates the sarcastic approach I was taking. I was trying to point out this tragic situaton and the likely results of Russia’s forced extradition of Gao Chunman as if the Chinese media were reporting it. Thanks for taking the time to read and comment on the Incontiguous Brick.

  5. re Iknowkeith,

    Thank you for being sympathetic. Sarcasm is not a great sense of humor- unfortunately it is quite evil . Truth is important and to able to discuss your thoughts and feelings in a truthful way with out fear of ridicule is beneficial for everyone.

    Sarcasm is thoughtless and is hurtful and even though it has become main stream does not mean it s a good way to reach people.

    I have teenage children, the eldest one continually talks sarcastically to all of her mates and she says oh it doesnt mean anything but it does. Words are powerful and can touch peoples souls or cause one to become jaded and cold.

    Our whole culture of talking has changed not that i am against change but lets change for the better…

    Falun Gong helps people become better people which is why the communist regime is murdering us…

  6. re Jana,
    The People Republic of China is murdering Falun Gong members because they are viewed as a potential political threat to the communist party. In a one-party authoritarian regime, any large rapidly organized demonstration is seen as a risk. Therefore, when 10,000 Falun Gong practitioners gathered in 1999 to protest a government action on very short notice (without the government knowing in advance) it scared the living sh** out of them. It was this moment that Falun Gong was viewed as a threat to state security and the campaign to oppress, harass, torture, and kill Falun Gong began.
    I feel this is a tragedy of epic proportions but let’s be realistic about it. Reports of over 3000 people tortured to death is terrible. The numbers tell the real tale. Governments murder large numbers of people for political reasons. Period. Falun Gong was out of their control so the PRC is trying to put it down.
    Saying the PRC is murdering Falun Gong because it doesn’t want people to “become better people” is like saying al-Qaeda attacked the U.S. because they don’t like our freedoms. Doesn’t make sense. It is all about power and politics.

  7. HI Keith, you have said it right unknowingly

    you said “Saying the PRC is murdering Falun Gong because it doesn’t want people to “become better people” is like saying al-Qaeda attacked the U.S. because they don’t like our freedoms. Doesn’t make sense. It is all about power and politics.”

    al-Qaeda attacks the US and others because yes it does not like our freedoms this is precisely so..Some so called humans are intent on a path of evil and are anti humanity..

    What are politics used for ?? to control people.. because we each have lost our sense of humanity our morality and our ability to understand between right and wrong. A sharp decline in morality indicates that people no longer believe in Buddhas or Dao’s or Gods. No longer believing that goodness is met with goodness and evil is met with retribution humans feel free to explore more in depth their demonic natures there and are not concerned about what they do anymore..Do you honestly think that humanbeings can go on like this without some arrest?

    Politics will always be corrupt because generally we have handed our morality and ethics our souls over to a bunch of people to look after it for us while we get on with our lives.. And these mere mortals can not resist the their ego, searching for fame and riches. This is the nature of power and politics.

    Anyone threating their position will be persecuted. But it precisely because the communist regime are anti-humanity (killing 80 million of Chinese in the last 60 years) and do not believe in Gods Buddhas and Daos they will follow a demonic path of destruction and try andtake the rest of the world down with them.. same with al-Qadea who have joined forces with the Chinese communist regime with the common goal of taking down democratic nations because they do not like free thinking people who can vote them in one minute and out the next.

    Falun Gong present a threat because we are free of any ideology from the communist regime and if we were told to commit persecution or torture another human being we would not do it.. we would rather die ourselves first than do that and have to pay an eternity of retribution .So in that sense the CCP lost control of 100 million people in China. And it is because we practice Truth compassion forbearance that they try to wipe that goodness off the planet. But it wont work good will always prevail over evil always has always will.We do not want power for ourselves we have no wish to run China. We are after higher realms than this..

    The CCp biggest concern is the resilience of Falun Gong, they cannot understand why or how we are still here…..

  8. regarding>>>because we each have lost our sense of humanity our morality and our ability to understand between right and wrong, etc…

    Um, no. The sense of humanity and morality has been in question since the beginning of time. Read the Bible. Look at the Romans, the Colosseum was an arena of death. Look at public lynching and executions throughout history. The fact that there was always an audience to appease, hungry to witness death, full of blood lust. You can’t assume that we are losing anything. It was lost a long long time ago. We are just perfecting the art of destruction.

  9. RE Poem:

    Yet there have been some peaceful moments in history. You can say that morality has slipped down to a very dangerous level now.Are we in the dark ages? Many cultures point to this time as being the end of they way it was…to be interpreted how you see fit..

    This is what I am referring too. We may not have ever liked what the rulers do but everyday people had some conscience about them in various peak times of civilization .What we are lacking now is that everyday conscience.
