Following the exposure of Chinese Communist Party´s live organ
harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners, more and more secret
investigations have been conducted to identify the authenticity
of the allegation.
The Slaughter is a new book soon to be released in August.
Written by former U.S. think tank researcher Ethan Gutmann,
this book illustrates the live organ harvesting of Falun Gong
practitioners by a doctor who eye witnessed the entire process.
Recently, Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting interviewed
former U.S. think tank researcher Ethan Gutmann about his new
book The Slaughter, a painstaking collective investigation and
records of live organ harvesting of more than 100 witnesses.
Among them was a surgeon with a peerless reputation for
integrity and candor. He has personal and direct knowledge of
the organ harvesting of Falun Gong in the Chinese mainland,
On August 12 when the book is released, the experience and
identity of the doctor will be revealed.
The eyewitness doctor had learned about the live organ harvesting
while visiting outside of China.
After returning to China, he conducted his own investigation.
In New York, during the commemoration activity of the 4.25
peaceful appeal of Falun Gong practitioners, Doctor Liu
accepted NTD´s interview.
Doctor Liu, witness of live organ harvesting from Falun Gong
practitioners in China: “I went to the medical record room for
organ transplants and found kidney transplant cases were
When I looked into the cases, none of them was available.
When I requested the cases to the staff in charge of the records,
they all avoided my request, like they´re hiding something.”
Dr. Liu says the flyers about organ transplant were all over
the hospital where he worked.
Dr. Liu: “The kidney transplant flyer, for example, said quick
matching for any blood type and donor.
Flyers of such (a kind) were many more than before.
I had no idea where these organs would come from.
Some doctors did write reports, but, the data reported were kept
as a secret.
The more operations they have performed, the more skillful
But, often their reports were questioned about the source of the
donors, which often were left unanswered.”
Ethan Gutmanns attitude towards the allegation of live organ
harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners has turned from
skeptical to conducting investigation and finally dedication to
stand up and expose the shady crimes, as evidenced by his two
other books, State Organ and Losing The New China.
Gutmann described that he was standing on the shoulders of
giants: Kilgour and Matas, the World Organization to Investigate
the Persecution of Falun Gong (WOIPFG), and Matthew
Robertson´s seminal reporting, who have provided many proofs
of the live organ harvesting.
Kilgour and Matas list fully 52 key points of evidence in Bloody
Harvest, many of them based on Chinese government documents.
Gutmann said, all these different sources of evidence have firmly
ensured and concluded the (facts of) collective organ harvesting.
Swear by fieldwork and refugee interviews, is the heart of what
he does. He said, “When you get a whiff of the same familiar
cordite in divergent locations—Asia, Australia, Europe, North
America—and from completely unrelated individuals—a young
Falun Gong man, a Uyghur nurse, a Tibetan monk.
Then the cloak of skepticism must surely fall away.”
Just recently, human rights lawyers illegally detained in the
northeast Jiansanjiang black jail received the same threats of live
organ harvesting by the police.
Tang Jitian, human rights lawyer: “In the violent beating, they
threatened to bury me in a hole, take my kidney, and kill me like
how Jang Sung-taek was murdered by North Korea’s Kim Jong-un.
In the interrogation, they also threatened to send me to the
brainwashing center for forced conversion.”
Commentator Lin Zixu points out that when the police arbitrarily
threaten with live organ harvesting, that tells the fact they have
become accustomed to the crimes.
According to Gutmann´s investigation, no less than 65,000
Falun Gong practitioners have been subject to live organ harvesting.
He said, “Why would the Chinese leadership take such a wild risk?
Why would they commit atrocities on such a massive scale?”
In fact they are the central dilemma that his book investigates.
Six of the ten chapters are devoted to how and why
the repression of Falun Gong spun out of control.
