A new independent report out of London revealed that that the Chinese government is targeting religious minorities and harvesting their organs. The report says that members of the outlawed group Falun Gong “were used for forced organ harvesting.” Now Falun Gong is a religious sect and the Chinese government considers them an enemy of the state. The report said that the Chinese government forcibly takes the organs from an estimated 90,000 people every year. It’s shocking news but this isn’t the first time China has been exposed for human rights abuses. The Chinese government doesn’t view human rights as endowed by God. Nor do they respect the intrinsic worth and value of every individual. In China, the government is the ultimate authority. And when there’s no authority above the government, human rights abuse is bound to happen.
