The American Academy of Forensic Nursing (AFN) and the global organization Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting (DAFOH) held the First Nurses Summit on November 1. The summit aims to combat and stop forced organ harvesting and hopes to promote ethical medical and nursing practices worldwide.
At this summit, many doctors, experts, and witnesses exposed the CCP’s crimes of organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners for profit.
Deborah Collins-Perrica, director of nursing affairs at DAFOH, a Washington-based NGO, said, “The killing of innocent people for their organs is the most egregious act.”
Collins-Perrica added that, in China, the regime perpetrates this activity—it is managed by the police and overseen by the military.
Collins-Perrica says that the organ trade is thought to generate a billion dollars a year for the Chinese regime and is one of the most profitable industries in the world.
Falun Gong is originally from China, a spiritual practice that includes meditation exercises and moral teachings based on the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. It attracted more than 100 million participants in the late 90s.
However, the Communist Party of China launched a nationwide crackdown in 1999 which continues until today.
Since then, millions of Falun Gong practitioners have been sent to prisons, labor camps, and brainwashing centers across the country, where they are tortured, forced to labor, or have their organs harvested.
Shining, who currently lives in the U.S., is a former computer engineer for the company Shengli Oilfield.
She was also invited to the summit and talked about an incident that occurred while she was in Shandong province with a friend who practiced Falun Gong and also his wife.
Shining and a friend believed that his friend’s wife’s kidney had been stolen. Later, to silence him, this husband was also assassinated.
Shining at the summit also shared a story of her own persecution and wrongful detention in mainland China, during which she had multiple blood samples taken and underwent tests.
She must have her blood checked at least 11 times every month, but no medical reports have been released. She expressed her suspicion that China had taken blood samples and test samples from victims identical to her to prepare for organ harvesting.
Jiang Li, an organ-harvesting witness living in the U.S, said that her whole family was persecuted because of practicing Falun Gong.
Her father, whose body was still warm, was forcibly taken to the funeral home by the police, and the police prevented the family from taking him to the emergency room for treatment.
As the family members were not at the scene, and without the consent of the family members, they carried out organ harvesting, the whole process was recorded with video evidence.
Monti, secretary of the European branch of DAFOH-France, said most do not understand the gravity of the crime and the impact on the medical world.
In addition, Monti said others might have been bribed by the CCP for economic or political gain without being willing to discuss forced organ harvesting.
Arthur L. Caplan, professor at New York University’s Grossman School of Medicine told at the conference that there was a huge difference between China’s annual transplant numbers and the numbers they reported for organ donation.
If not obtained through donation, organs are taken from the human body without permission, and the Chinese government targets prisoners.
