On September 26, derStandard, one of the three mainstream newspapers in Austria, carried a report from the Austria News Agency about Falun Gong practitioners being killed for organ harvesting and transplantation.

Nie was accused of attacking a woman in a field near his home, but only after his execution did another man confess to the attack.
Amnesty International says the demand for transplant organs may be driving the high number of executions in China.

Accusing a member that disagrees with the PRC of being a paid spammer. Yeah, you've done really well. Keep up the good work. Deny that ignorance.
Back on topic you went, only to fall right back off.
If this is true (which is possible) then there should be inquiries looking into it. Instead of people sitting on their sofa "denying ignorance" by choosing to remain ignorant to anything outside their bubble.

As for the kidney transplantation , it may take one week to find a suitable donor,the maximum time being one month. Although the procedure to select a donor is very strict,, the transplant operation will be terminated if the doctor discovers that there is something wrong with the donor's organ . If this happens, the patient will have the option to be offered another organ donor and have the operation again in one week.
