Upcoming: Protest against Chinese Human Rights Violations

Posted by Peter W on October 21, 2007

Need a new kidney? Go to China! An investigation by a former member of the Canadian parliament found that in China, it only takes about 1 week for a kidney to become available for human transplant, while in Canada the average wait time is 32.5 months (in the U.S., the waiting time is similar, about 1000 days). Wonder how China is so fast? According to the investigation, its pretty simple – they take organs from live & unwilling victims – political prisoners. The prisoners are often followers of the Falun Gong religion, who are also tortured and killed for following their religion of choice.
