Internationally renowned organ transplant physician Professor Russell Strong has warned Western medical institutions that they should ban the entry and training of Chinese surgeons, who once they acquire the knowledge, return to China to participate in the forced removal of organs from living people that is carried out under the supervision and with the participation of the Chinese state apparatus, the Daily Mail reported.
Dr. Russell Strong was one of the pioneers in the area of transplantation and, as early as 1980, established an organ transplant program at Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane, Australia, his native Australia.
He performed the first successful liver transplant in 1985 and said he received hundreds of requests from Chinese doctors who wanted to train with him.
But Dr. Strong had heard rumors that the Chinese Communist Party used death-sentenced prisoners and political dissidents as an organ bank to ‘practice’ harvesting and subsequent transplantation.
“I refused to train them unless I had a signed document from their institution that they would not go back and use executed prisoners as organ donors,” Professor Strong said. “I never received one response, so I refused to take them on.”
Dr. Strong was made a Companion of the Order of Australia, a Companion of the Order of St. Michael and St. George, and knighted in Malaysia. At that time, his courage was met with hostility from other medical professionals who accused him of being a racist.
But the professor denies that it had anything to do with race and claims he trained many Chinese Australians, Singaporeans, and Hong Kongers, as well as those from other parts of the world.
“I just thought using prisoners as organs donors was totally immoral,” he said.
According to statistical reports collected by independent organizations and human rights lawyers, China performs between 60,000 and 100,000 transplants per year.
When reports and activists worldwide began to denounce that Beijing was ‘butchering’ living people to sell their organs, China had no organ donation system. Thus, the Chinese regime had no way to justify the source of its transplants.
Later, in response to international pressure, the CCP said that the organs came from prisoners sentenced to death, but the numbers did not add up with only 1,000 executions a year.
China then created a voluntary organ donor registry in 2012, but the number of people who sign up still can’t cover even a small portion of transplants nationwide.
Added to that, ads on websites advertised a waiting time of between two and four weeks to get a ‘compatible’ organ, which could only be explained when the blood and tissue type of thousands of people are known in advance.
“Hospitals and universities should stop receiving and training any surgeons from China, not just for transplants, any surgeons because the Chinese doctors know what is happening and they in a way are covering up all of this,” urged Dr. Strong.
The CCP has repeatedly denied using living people to harvest their organs, but reports and people who survived CCP persecution and have been sheltered abroad have given their testimonies.
Among the religious groups and minorities persecuted in China and victims of this atrocity are Falun Dafa practitioners, Muslim Uighurs in Xinjiang province, Tibetans, and House Christians.
Despite the scale and chilling nature of the crimes committed by the Chinese Communist regime, the topic has received little coverage in the mainstream media, many of which often receive some funding from the CCP.
“I think the mainstream media has really failed to report the atrocities that are going on and have failed to connect the people of the free world with the victims of forced organ harvesting in China,” the Australian professor reflected.
Fact surpass fiction
The topic of organ harvesting has been in the news recently because part of the plot of a series that has become famous in a short time involves forced organ harvesting.
It is about the Squid Game, a Netflix series where poor or indebted people agree to participate in a game where those who fail to follow the rules are killed on the spot. Those who win are promised millions of dollars in prize money.
Part of the scheme of the game is that when people who fail to follow the rules or lose are killed, there is a group of people who harvest the organs of those people to sell for transplants supposedly.
In the case of forced organ harvesting in China, according to some surgeons who have repented and revealed what they were doing in China, people are fully alive and conscious at the time of organ harvesting and die in the process, an excruciating torturous form of dying.
These people are not criminals, nor do they owe money to anyone. Most of them are innocent, and their only ‘crime’ was believing in God.
