This is quite disturbing…
Zheng Qiaozhi has nightmares when he was interning at China’s Shenyang Army General Hospital part of an organ-harvesting team.
The prisoner was brought in, tied hand and foot, but very much alive. The army doctor in charge sliced him open from chest to belly button and exposed his two kidneys. “Cut the veins and arteries,” he told his intern. Zheng Qiaozhi did as he was told.
The kidneys were placed in an organ-transplant container.
Then the doctor told Zheng Qiaozhi to remove the prisoner’s eyeballs. Hearing that, the dying prisoner gave him a look of sheer terror, Zheng Qiaozhi told the doctor “I can’t do it,” the doctor then quickly scooped out the man’s eyeballs himself.
Zheng Qiaozhi was so unnerved by what he had seen that he soon quit his job at the hospital and returned home. Later, afraid that he might be the next victim of China’s forced organ-transplant business, he fled to Canada and got a new identity.
All these prisoners of conscience not only had their blood drawn upon entry but also had their organs examined, presumably so they could be more quickly matched with those willing to pay for them.
