These days, Americans are waking up to the growing threat of communist China. The country is more than just the place where most of our stuff is made. It is a cruel dictatorship that is trying to use its influence to overthrow the world.
Not only that, but we often hear stories about how China’s corrupt regime mistreats its own citizens. China employs slavery, civil rights abuses, and other atrocities. But one horrific practice has left lawmakers stunned. And Congress just dropped a bomb on them.
From The Epoch Times:
The House of Representatives on March 27 overwhelmingly passed a bill to punish communist China for its forced organ harvesting from prisoners of conscience, marking the first nonsymbolic legislative measure in the United States to counter the atrocity…
Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.), the principal sponsor of the bill, called attention to the penalties in the bill for those found to be involved in forced organ harvesting: a civil penalty of up to $250,000 and a criminal penalty of up to $1 million and 20 years in prison.
The House just passed a bill to confront the horrifying illegal organ market going on in China. According to reports, China allows the forced harvesting of organs from prisoners. These aren’t hardened criminals, but people wrongly imprisoned by China over conscience.
China has been taking organs from these people and selling them on black markets. The new law, passed overwhelmingly by the House, requires government reports on this practice. This means, the U.S. will be taking a proactive step in investigating reports of organ harvesting in China.
If anyone is found to be engaging in this harvesting, they can face a penalty of $250,000 and a criminal penalty of $1 million and 20 years in prison.
You might be wondering, how can the U.S. convict China of this crime? Well, as horrible as it sounds, this kind of practice finds its way to other countries. Where do you think some of these organs are being sent?
There is likely a small, but growing, black market in the U.S. for these organs. China might be taking organs from victims there and shipping them to other countries. Sounds crazy? Sure, but that won’t stop the corrupt country from doing it.
Anyone apprehended by the U.S. government for this horrible crime can face a harsh penalty. Hopefully, this bill will pass in the Senate and become law.
- The House passed a bill that will punish China for engaging in illegal organ harvesting.
- Anyone caught engaging in this crime can face up to 20 years in prison.
- China is notorious for stealing organs from prisoners and selling them on black markets.
