*This is a online petition about Stop Organ Harvesting in China: Petition
the White House to speak out against the killing of innocent people for
their organs.*
Hundreds of thousands of Falun Gong meditators are held in prison camps
across China. For the past decade, they and other prisoners have been
medically tested, killed, and used as a living donor bank for China’s
transplant industry. Amidst growing international condemnation of these
horrific crimes, three American doctors have launched a petition on the
White House website urging President Obama to speak out and help stop what
medical professionals are calling a crime against humanity.

Once this online petition collects 25,000 signatures by January 1st, the
White House is committed to respond. The clock is ticking…

As a spiritual and meditation practice rooted in traditional Chinese
culture, Falun Gong became immensely popular throughout China in the 1990s.
But in 1999, the Communist Party launched a violent campaign to suppress
it. Hundreds of thousands of innocent people were abducted and sent to
prison camps. Many were tortured, some to death.

Since 2006, evidence has emerged of a more horrific crime. Unlike other
countries, China has no large-scale voluntary organ donation system, so
instead, military hospitals use prisoners. Experts now estimate that tens
of thousands of jailed Falun Gong believers and other prisoners have been
systematically examined, and then used as a living organ donor bank, killed
on demand to fuel China's lucrative transplant industry.

The U.S. State Department’s 2011 Human Rights Report cited allegations of
organ harvesting from Falun Gong believers and other prisoners of
conscience. In October, 106 members of Congress wrote to Secretary Clinton
requesting the release of information the State Department is believed to
have about the gruesome practice. Two Congressional hearings have covered
the topic, while leading transplantation doctors from around the world have
condemned this crime against humanity.

Now, a trio of medical doctors from New York and California have initiated
a petition on the “We the People” section of the official White House
website. They are directly urging President Obama to investigate and
publicly condemn organ harvesting in China. Under the site's rules, if the
petition garners 25,000 signatures before January 1st, the White House
promises to respond.

Every minute counts for those in China. Sign now and help save a life.
