    insane. chinese and china. Death by a thousand cuts. a chinese innovation and tradition.

    the chinese had to do it. because first: chinese enjoy pain and misery, either inflicting it on others or on themselves and secondly he didn’t want to wake up (if he ever wakes up in a chinese slaughterhousepital..) without his kidney or liver.


    “In a survey conducted a few years ago, a majority of Chinese people admitted they were afraid to get sick.

    In 2012, a retired Chinese military physician admitted that organs were still being harvested from detained Falun Gong practitioners. He also acknowledged that the Chinese courts had officially approved such practices.

    Executive director of the Coalition for Organ-Failure Solutions (COFS), Debra Budiani-Saberion, has spoken out against this act.

    A medical anthropologist studying into organ trafficking since 1999, Budiani-Saberton said vulnerable people in China could often be forced into “donating” their organs.

    In a survey conducted a few years ago, a majority of Chinese people admitted they were afraid to get sick.

    They said that once they were involved in an accident, they feared doctors would not try their best to save their lives. Instead, with bribery from desperate organ recipients and a signed organ donation card, one’s life could actually be jeopardized after an accident.

    “In other words, the Chinese society has no backup to provide over 10,000 organs per year if the group of executed prisoners as organ sources phases out,” said Mr Trey.

    David Shirk, professor of political science at the University of San Diego, told Aljazeera:”I have no doubt organs are being removed from bodies. But for the most part, organ trafficking occurs in hospitals, where there are corrupt medical practitioners.”

    What the farmer did was probably what the Chinese ‘doctor’ would have done anyway. The onlyndifference is that the farmer probably sterilized his tools.
