August 05, 2013 | By a Falun Gong Practitioner in China
(Minghui.org) A reliable source in China reported the following story to the Minghui website. A Falun Gong practitioner’s husband’s friend received a kidney transplant in 2004. He lives in a town near Beijing. When news of the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) practice of harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners became public, the practitioner asked her husband’s friend, “Do you know where your kidney came from?” He said, “Yes, I know. It was from a Falun Gong practitioner, a twenty three year-old young man.” The practitioner was shocked at this revelation, and asked him to provide more details.
The patient, in his forties in 2004, went to a hospital for dialysis due to kidney failure. He saw his friend Liu there, who had gone through a kidney transplant. Liu told him to go to Beijing University Third Hospital for a kidney transplant. Liu had also introduced other people to the same hospital.
The patient went to Beijing University Third Hospital and saw a large screen displaying the number of successful organ transplant surgeries in this hospital, including the number of liver, kidney and heart transplants. These numbers were covered up after news of the CCP’s organ harvesting atrocities became public.
Dozens of people in the hospital were waiting for different organs at that time. One week after he was admitted to the hospital, he and another kidney patient were sent to a hospital in Rizhou, Shandong Province for transplant surgery. Hospital officials informed them that the organs they were to receive were from death row prisoners. However, they found out later that the kidneys were taken from living Falun Gong practitioners.
The patient recounted that a dozen people had different organ transplant surgeries at the same time he was in the hospital. The hospital hurried to release him a few days after the surgery, even though he hadn’t completely recovered. Another group of people were admitted for organ transplants. The hospital performed organ transplant surgeries group after group.
Nurse in Beijing Youan Hospital Involved in Nationwide Live Organ Harvesting
A family member of a nurse in Beijing Youan Hospital said that the nurse, together with a doctor and another nurse in her hospital, were busy traveling around the nation from 2003 to 2006 in order to acquire organs from “death row prisoners”. The so-called “death row prisoners” were between 30 to 40 years old. Their names or medical records were unknown. The nurses were ordered to label them “death row prisoners”, but was kept a state secret. The nurses weren’t allowed to share any information. The nurse and her two colleagues made a great deal of money during those years. The number of live organs harvested dropped significantly after 2006.
