“How was the harvest this year?”
“Well, we did okay on hearts, but we fell well short of our goal on livers and kidneys.”
There are persistent and credible reports of systemic, state-sanctioned, organ harvesting and transplant abuse of (non-consenting) prisoners of conscience in the “People’s Republic” of China. These organs are primarily taken from Falun Gong practitioners and other religious and ethnic minority groups.
The Chinese Communist Party banned Falun Gong in 1999 and forced all party members to go through training on the issue and make statements illustrating their “correct understanding” of it. Politically-incorrect prisoners subject to the death penalty have frequently had their organs “harvested,” as admitted by some in the Chinese medical community. Apparently, Falun Gong members have been the most frequent victims of this policy. (See the online site, Doctors against Forced Organ Harvesting).
Ironically, many on the far left in this country would be okay with the imprisonment of some of our media’s more successful, politically-incorrect, conservatives. In fact, they have already laid the foundation for doing just that, as Rush Limbaugh, Michael Savage and Mark Steyn, among others, can attest to.
Run up against the Global Warming Gestapo, for example, and you will be censored- or worse. Many have literally called for skeptics to be jailed. I’m sure they would be fine with the involuntary harvesting of “Deniers” organs, as well.
They could certainly use the brains.
And the hearts.
