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.
