Subject: SLS: House To Probe Chinese Organ Sales

Now, if they will only tug a little
on the threads laid bare, they will
be in for a few big surprises.

This black market includes America.

>House To Probe Chinese Organ Sells
>WASHINGTON (AP) -- House lawmakers demanded Wednesday a full 
>investigation into a report that Chinese military hospitals are selling 
>organs from executed prisoners to Americans needing transplants.
>Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., citing an investigation by ABC's "PrimeTime 
>Live" alleging that organs taken from Chinese prisoners are sold to 
>U.S. and other international buyers, said there is "strong evidence that 
>federal and state laws have been broken."
>"We're talking about real men and women being killed for someone who can 
>pay for parts of their bodies," said Rep. Linda Smith, R-Wash.
>Chinese Embassy spokesman Yu Shuning said the allegations of organ sales 
>were "sheer fabrication," noting that the sale of human organs is 
>prohibited in China.
>ABC reported Oct. 15 that the Chinese military charged foreigners up to  
>$30,000 for transplants of kidneys and other organs.  Transplants were 
>advertised in a Chinese-language newspaper in New York, it said.
>Also, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman, Sen. Jesse Helms 
>this week wrote the State Department, saying he plans a hearing on the 
>matter and asking the department to take it up with Chinese President 
>Jiang Zemin when he visits Washington next week.
>In meetings with Jiang, Wolf said, "The administration ought to speak 
>out and make it clear that this is unacceptable."
>Human rights activists have long charged, and Chinese officials have 
>denied, that China harvests the organs of executed prisoners for sale.  
>But there has been no confirmed evidence that such organs are sold in 
>the United States or elsewhere.
