China admits using organs from executed prisoners

? After years of denial, China has acknowledged that many of the human organs used in transplants here are taken from executed prisoners and that many of the recipients are foreigners who pay hefty sums to avoid a long wait.Speaking at a conference of surgeons in the southern city of Guangzhou, Deputy Health Minister Huang Jiefu called for a strict code of conduct and better record-keeping to stem China’s thriving illegal organ trade, state media reported.

“Apart from a small portion of traffic victims, most of the organs from cadavers are from executed prisoners,” said Huang, reported the English-language China Daily newspaper Thursday. “The current organ donation shortfall can’t meet demand.” – chron

Don’t worry, the photo is fake. It is from Monty Python’s “the Meaning of Life“. In this scene some door-to-door organ collectors take a living persons liver because he filled out a donor card. One of them then convinces his wife to donate hers as well. Funny stuff, but the fact that China is convicting real people to make money from their organs after they execute these unfortunate souls is beyond repulsive. The rich (people who can afford organs) are buying extended life from cannibalizing the poor. I think the main reason this is happening is that people are like rats. Rats get very nasty when there are too many of them in one small space. Thus it is with China’s population. I predict this same thing will happen elsewhere as the human population grows.
