Netizen links atrocity to domestic security czar Zhou Yongkang
The news of two doctors’ suicides has people on China’s Internet talking about an atrocity that until very recently the Chinese regime had kept tightly under wraps.
The most widely forwarded comment about the suicides of two doctors heavily involved in organ transplantation condemned the “unprecedented evil” of live organ harvesting—the removal of organs from unwilling, live donors, which in the process kills them. The doctors had taken their own lives because they couldn’t live with the guilt of involvement in this barbaric practice, the post argued.
David Matas, an attorney and researcher known for being the co-author of a report about the abuse of organ transplantation in China, was more careful. He thought the connection was a stretch. “It’s very hard to explain a person’s suicide without a suicide note,” he said. “But what’s significant is that this is being circulated in China.”
Indeed, since the highly unusual lifting of censorship on the topic of live organ harvesting, speculation and discussion online has abounded. The most striking feature of the conversation is that the most prominent abuse of organ transplantation in China is closely tied to the massive persecution of Falun Gong. They are healthy individuals who Matas believes have been targeted for their organs on a massive scale across the country.
