Petition Against Forced Organ Harvesting:
Tens of thousands of illegally imprisoned Falun Gong believers have been used as a living organ bank, killed on demand to fuel China’s lucrative organ transplant industry, outlined in this video:
The U.S. State Department’s 2011 Human Rights Report cited allegations of organ harvesting from Falun Gong and other prisoners of conscience. In October 2012, 106 members of Congress wrote to Secretary Clinton requesting further information. Two Congressional hearings have covered the topic. Leading transplantation doctors and medical organizations worldwide have condemned this crime against humanity.
The Obama administration set up “We the People”, an online venue for petitions. Any petition that can reach 25,000 signers within 30 days will get a formal response from the White House. The following is an important petition to bring awareness to the issue of forced organ harvesting:
As a world leader in protecting human rights, the U.S. has a moral obligation to expose these crimes, stop them, and make sure the perpetrators are brought to justice.
