President Joe Biden has been soft on America’s adversaries, especially when it comes to China. However, it’s time he stops ignoring the genocidal actions of the Chinese Communist Party.
An expert on China’s human rights abuses warned Congress that the Chinese government is “harvesting” organs from up to 50,000 prisoners a year at its concentration camps, Breitbart reported. These victims provide as many as 150,000 organs to be sold on the black market.
The expert, Ethan Gutmann, was testifying before Congress in Thursday’s “Forced Organ Harvesting in China: Examining the Evidence.” Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) spearheaded the hearing for the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission.
Gutmann has extensive knowledge on the issue, including co-authoring reports “Bloody Harvest” and “The Slaughter.” He’s also a senior research fellow in China studies at the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation.
Other experts who testified included Enver Tohti, an East Turkistanian surgeon whose own experience included being forced in 1995 to cut the heart out of a prisoner he had watched them execute. The country has some 1,000 of these camps in East Turkistan, where a large portion of the Uyghur ethnic community resides.
The communist government has rounded up the Uyghurs and other minorities into these camps under the guise of providing “vocational training.” Instead are enslaved, raped, indoctrinated, tortured, and used killed for their organs in these camps.
Gutmann said two groups depart from the camps early, with the first being 18-year-olds and the second being around 28 years old. The former are often headed to “forced labor,” and the latter is “the exact stage of physical development that the Chinese medical establishment prefers for organ harvesting,” Gutmann said.
He explained that after they were given medical evaluations, a select number “vanished in the middle of the night. Witness testimony from approximately twenty camps is strikingly consistent: between 2.5% to 5% annual disappearances for the 28-year-old age group,” Gutmann said.
Biden has been soft on Chinese leader Xi Jinping despite these gruesome, barbaric practices. It’s utterly disgraceful.
