On April 8, Mu Jiangang, a teacher at Lanzhou University, suffered a myocardial infarction and was rushed to the hospital to have the blood clot removed and a heart stent inserted, to keep the blood vessel open. On April 28, he was rushed back to the hospital. He was put on an ECMO (extracorporeal membrane oxygenation). This is a machine used to do the work of the heart and lungs when a patient’s own organs are unable to work on their own. It is in essence a modified heart-lung bypass machine taking over heart and lung function. After being placed on the ECMO, he was diagnosed with a significant heart infarction that required a heart transplant.
On May 6, Mu was transferred to China’s top organ transplant hospital, the Wuhan Union Hospital, which is affiliated with the Tongji Medical College of Huazhong University of Science and Technology. He was placed on the waitlist for a heart.
After only four days at the hospital, Mu Jiangang was the lucky recipient of a heart transplant. After surgery, Mu was transferred to the intensive care unit.
The speed at which a suitable donor organ was found for Mu is unheard of outside of China. In the United States, where medical technology is more advanced and the organ donor system is hyper-efficiently streamlined to minimize loss of viable organs, the wait time usually exceeds 180 days. Many patients have died before suitable organs become available.
The source of donated organs is strictly regulated in the United States, and the transplant waitlist can be viewed online. But in China, the source of donated organs and transplant waitlists are, as usual, kept secret.
Actually, Mu’s speedy heart transplant was not a matter of luck or coincidence. In China, there is a growing body of evidence pointing to the communist regime as the creators of an organized system that keeps a human reserve of healthy individuals for use as organ donors.
Consider the story of Sun Lingling, a 24-year-old woman who became the subject of media reports in mainland China for her rapid heart transplant.
Sun’s story began in June 2020. While working in Japan, she fell ill, requiring her to be placed on an ECMO to survive. A nine-month wait was projected to match her with a donor for the needed heart transplant. Instead of waiting, she opted to go to China. On June 12, she was flown to China where she was admitted to the Wuhan Union Hospital. Miraculously, she was matched with a heart only 13 days later. This is where the story becomes very unusual: not only was Sun matched with one heart. No, she was matched with four available hearts.
The first donated heart arrived at the hospital on June 16, but was rejected. Surgeons rejected it, assessing the coronary arteries to be in poor condition.
Only four days later, the second heart arrived. Sun was running a fever, and therefore unable to go into surgery. The heart could not be used and thus was also rejected.
Only six days later, Sun’s condition had noticeably improved just as the final—not one but two—donor hearts arrived. That was June 25. The third heart, from a local female, was also rejected. The heart finally chosen was that of a 33-year-old male who lived hundreds of kilometers away.
Within just 13 days, Sun had four hearts to choose from, made available for her surgery. She would live on, while the four donors did not.
On April 4, 2021, the World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (WOIPFG) released an investigative report stating there are suspicions that the Wuhan hospital is participating in the crime of harvesting organs of living Falun Gong practitioners and other prisoners of conscience persecuted by the Chinese Communist Party.
In a previous interview with The Epoch Times, Dr. Torsten Trey, executive director of the medical ethics advocacy group Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting (DAFOH), said Sun Lingling’s unprecedented short wait for four donor hearts should be a cause for international alarm.
He calls Sun’s case “beyond explanation.” It “rather follows an ‘on-demand system.’”
Dr. Torsten Trey’s statement adds up. It adds up with the detailed accounts of Falun Gong practitioners detained in mainland China, where extensive medical testing is performed when detainees are admitted. For the few Falun Gong practitioners that miraculously make it out of the prisons and live to tell their story, there are many more that never made it out.
It adds up when donors have the luxury of four hearts to choose from in less than two weeks.
It adds up when it takes four days to be matched with an organ, while elsewhere in the world, it takes over a year, if you’re lucky.
Outside of China, the rest of the world has people dying waiting for just one organ with which to be matched for a life-saving transplant. But in China, where do those organs come from and how can they be so plentiful? Not just that, but how are these organs so instantaneously available on demand? Evidence suggests this is only possible if live human donors are already pre-cataloged and identified, ready for dissection at the drop of a hat.
If communist China is all about “saving lives” as they say and “improving the lot of the people,” then why secretly guard the details of their wildly successful organ transplant acquisition process?
Given its “great success” in making organs so readily available for transplants, wouldn’t China want to share its miraculous success, sharing best practices with the rest of the world in order to save lives?
Or is it that China’s communist regime has created an advanced and highly organized detention system, where a healthy reserve of humans is warehoused and cataloged for use as organ donors? Organ donors forced to give up their lives so that others should live?
