Organ harvesting scandal in China

Dear Editor,

Thank you for publishing an article on organ harvesting in China in your recent issue of Medicine Weekly (July 26th, 2006).

I am a Falun Gong practitioner in Ireland and would like to correct a word that was misused in this article,where Falun Gong was described as a 'sect'. This is a word that the Chinese Communist regime uses to defame Falun Gong and incite hatred among the Chinese people.

Therefore, I would strongly ask you to correct this word and clarify to your readers as soon as possible.

Although I was hurt by the use of the word 'sect', I still felt grateful to you for publishing information on organ harvesting of living Falun Gong practitioners in China.

Since July 1999, millions of practitioners have been locked up in labour camps, prisons, detention centres, brainwashing classes, mental institutions, etc.

Hospitals have worked with those places where practitioners are held to take their organs, and doctors and guards get money and promotions for selling these organs.

My sisters were lucky because they were brainwashed in a female labour camp in the capital city of Shandong province, Jinan. If they were not brainwashed, their organs would now be in some other person's body.

My mother passed away in October 2001 after one sister was sent to the camp in August 2001; my other sister was sent there in December 2000.

I was detained for four days in January 2000. The police escorted me to the airport and told me "not to come back until this persecution is finished".

I am one of the lucky ones, I came to study Computer Science in Ireland in 1996. Had I not, I would have been one of those people subjected to severe torture in those camps.

I hope the medical professionals can investigate these organ-harvesting issues because they have more influence in society. By doing so, millions of lives will be saved.

Yours sincerely,
