TX Sen. Passes Resolution to “Curb China’s Forced Organ Harvesting.”

Resolution to Curb China’s Forced Organ Harvesting: There Should Be An International Outcry

The Texas Senate  have unanimously adopted  resolution condemning the Chinese regime’s “practice of forcibly removing human organs for transplant” while urging the United States to take a more aggressive stance on the issue.

“We want to go on record as saying: ‘No, this is happening, and we condemn it,’” state said Sen. Angela Paxton, the primary author of the resolution.

Part of the motivation for Paxton, who has spent at least two years advancing the cause, was the lack of public attention on the organ transplant abuse, which had led many people to dismiss it as “rumors.”

“We know this is true, we know it is wrong, and that it again goes to the very heart of destroying the dignity of every human being.”

People around the world have flocked to China to seek transplant surgeries, upon learning that they could get a critical organ as quickly as in a two-week span. Yet such speed likely comes at a cost of innocent lives, the resolution passed through the Texas Senate on April 15 warns.

In 2019, the independent China Tribunal concluded that prisoners of conscience—a majority of them adherents of the persecuted spiritual discipline Falun Gong—are being killed on a “significant scale” for their organs.

Dr. Howard Monsour, who was among the first doctors involved in liver transplantation after its approval in 1984, recalled one of his patients from 10 years ago who developed liver cancer that had spread too far for him to have transplant surgery. After multiple U.S. hospitals turned him down, the desperate man took a trip to China and got a liver for $88,000, even though Monsour advised him against it, cautioning that late-stage surgery could accelerate the progression of cancer cells. The patient went ahead with the surgery and died eight months later.

“Think it of as a person trapped underwater. They will do almost anything to obtain a breath of air that gives them life,” said Monsour, now a gastroenterology specialist at Granbury-based Lakeside Physicians Express Care, in a testimony to the state senators. The surgery in China “was a disservice to this Texas citizen, and especially to the donor if it came from a prisoner,” he said.

At the state senate floor, Falun Gong practitioners who survived torture in China for their faith recalled being subjected to unexplained forced blood draws and witnessing “horrifying” disappearances of inmates that they later linked to organ harvesting.
