How Much Is Your Body Worth?
Did you know that your body is worth approximately $45 million? That is if it is for sale and every organ is sold. In an article by Medical Futurist  where they quote Medical Transcription, they estimate that the average price of a human dead body is around $550,000.
In the USA if you want to sell your heart it can be purchased for about $1 million. Livers are second at $557,000 and followed by kidneys at around $262,000 each. These are not black-market prices, those are usually a bit less, but you do not know what condition black market organs are in or where they come from. There is a long waiting list in both markets for organs.
I guess it should not be such a surprise that the cost of “health” is so expensive as the cost of pharmaceuticals has exploded in the past few years.
One example is Daraprim used to treat parasitic infections, cancer and AIDS went from $13.50 a pill to $750.00 per pill in 2015. It costs about $1 to make it.
The most obnoxious increases are in the department of diabetes medicine. Fredrick Banning who discovered insulin back in 1923 offered it for free because he thought it would be unethical to profit from others people’s diseases. What a noble thought, I wish that we would have such men and such integrity abounding in society today. The insulin patent was sold for $1 so that everyone who needed the medication could get it. Such is not the case now as the 4 main type of insulins’ price has tripled in the past 10 years, in 2016 the average price for a diabetic was $450 per month, but it has continued to climb. In fact, most insurance companies will not cover full price for Diabetic medication because of the price. (I know this as fact).
I was very honored and privileged to attend a performance of Shen Yun in Edmonton last weekend.
I was not sure if I would write about it or how I would write about it, or even the repercussions of writing about it, but when I opened by news feed this morning on my phone and found an article describing my thoughts, I knew I was supposed to write. This is not an easy subject to write about, nor is it a subject you might wish to read about, however, to pretend it is not real, is to do nothing and nothing is not an option.
“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’” Matthew 25:40
God is saying here we need to care about our fellow human beings, because He cares about them and an act of service to them, is an act of service to Him.
Shen Yun was an absolute masterpiece of creative dance, music, performances. From the live orchestra, the brilliant costumes, the precision and precise moves, the patented 3D backdrop where it looks like the figures can jump from the stage into the backdrop, it was stunning. Circle solei caliber of entertainment. If you get a chance you should attend a performance, they come out with a new production every year.
The performance is made up of many “mini” performances depicting China’s history pre-communism. The Shen Yun dance troupe is a group based out of New York as they are not allowed to perform in China. China being a communist and atheist nation will not allow their citizens to have religious beliefs other than those that the government dictates, which is atheism, no God. All other beliefs except Communism are persecuted, jailed, forbidden or worse.
The Shen Yun community are believers in Falun Gong (also called Falun Dafa) a religious group, that has no churches, no formal center anywhere. Falun Gong combines meditation and gentle exercises (similar to yoga or tai chi) with a moral philosophy centered on the tenets of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Tolerance. Falun Gong practitioners aspire to live by these principles in their daily lives. They believe in peace, meditation and do Tai Chi like exercises. This group has believers in the millions and they are all around the world, but the main group is in China. This group of people much like the Uyghurs of China are severely persecuted because of their faith. In 1999 China started its massive antireligious campaign that uses forced ideological conversion, forced re-education while incarcerated at special “centers”, arrests, forced labour, physical torture, forced sexual sterilization, and of course murder.
In the middle of the performance was a scene that was unsettling, where the message of the persecution gets real. A girl gets a book of Falun Gong and goes to the park to read it and do meditation with her friend. Security agents then come and beat and arrest the girls. One girl gets inspected and is taken away by a group dressed in scrubs. What you see next is an organ donation box being walked across the stage and handed to waiting delivery people who will see it on its way. Your mind is not quite sure if you interpreted that scene correctly.
The Falun Gong group is calling out to the world to sit up and take notice of this scene, they are calling out for help! The performances MC announces that this is still happening in present day China in modern day hospitals as China’s huge billion-dollar organ transplant business is very alive and well. In 1984 China passed a law to permit the removal of organs from prisoners. The business has kept growing. Falun Gong believers have been murdered for years as China tries to snuff out this assault against the Communist governments “rules” and Communism then gains by it. They get to crush the resistance in people who think other than the government does and then profit off the body parts.
Sick right? Horrendous! Wrong on all levels and yet……
This caused me to do some digging as I was not aware of China’s organ transplant business. Nor was I aware of Mexico’s, Israel, India, Pakistan, Kosovo, Turkey, Brazil, Nepal, Philippines, Iran and some former Soviet states in eastern Europe.
Who would buy these body parts? Apparently, lots of people, desperate to live and not caring that other possibly innocent people died to save them. People from USA, Canada, Western Europe, Arab Gulf states, Israel and wealthy others from over the globe.
In China the buyer arrives, gets set up for the procedure and often is force to then compete in a bidding war for the next available organ against other “buyers” even though they thought the price had been set before they arrived. Money making at its finest.
The organs come from various groups around the world. Sudanese refugees, or any refugees for that matter. In China, it is often Falun Gong and the Uyghurs, Tibetans, and Christians. 
I dug some on Google, but not being a google “truster” as it is so censored, as well as fact checker, which is also censored, I dug in many different areas. But it was not hard at all to find so many articles videos and governments around the world with the same claims accusing China for profiting from the organ transplant business.
I found out about the genocide of the Uyghurs in Northwestern China. Millions of Uyghurs (Islam religious people) have been detained in what the Chinese call: “Retraining Centers”, you did read that right, millions!
Can you say Nazi Germany all over again? There are concentration camps dotting the landscape of China. Both the Uyghurs and the Falun Gong have made claims from survivors of the camps, family loosing family members, individuals who have had to endure forced sterilization and even other countries: Canada, Holland, Spain, Argentina, are calling the genocide in China what it really is: Genocide.
In several reports there are some astounding numbers given: Ethan Gutmann estimates that 65,000 Falun Gong believers were killed for their organs from the years 2,000 to 2,008.
The United Nations has a list of 5 things that must be happening to be called a genocide. All 5 and more are happening in China with the Uyghurs and Falun Gong.
Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide
In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such:
Killing members of the group;
Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;
Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.
How can this be happening you ask? It is Nazi Germany all over again and eventually the world finally went to war to stop it. We all thought it would never happen again, but alas it has happened over and over and over all around the world. While the world’s attention is on Ukraine and Russia, other countries are murdering and profiting off of innocent human being’s body parts whilst committing genocide, torture and other atrocities at the same time.
Canada is not above this horrendous theme. Our government charged the “reigning churches” of years ago to “beat the native” out of the First Nations People and then forcibly removed their children and sent them to “retraining centers”, where again thousands never came home. Could we have stopped it if we had listened to the stories?
The organ transplant business was a $50 million dollar business back in 2008, and it has just continued to climb.
The news article I read that prompted me to write this blog was that China is now using it’s influence in other countries of the world, forcing them to send Uyghur people back to be prosecuted and worse ... countries are actually doing it!
Who is going to stop it? What country is going to step up to the plate and take on Communist World Power China who is vying for world domination and make them stop? I do not know either.
Why should we try? Because it is not just black lives that matter, it is not just children that matter, it is that EVERY life matters! Jesus thought so when He hung on the cross for ALL people.
What can we do? We can write, call, email and text our MLA’s, MP’s, Premiers, Prime Minster, Attorney General and ask them to put pressure from the Canadian government on these inhumane issues immediately.
We can find out if this is happening in our country that Chinese people are being sent back, if it is, then we can let our government know that it is not okay to send any Chinese people back to China to face what awaits there.
We can pray and involve the one who created all mankind asking God to war on behalf of all these people.
We can make this information public, not hidden. Do not be silent about these issues because my friends, we live in an unprecedented time, where everything can change in a moment, where our rights and freedoms are not “guaranteed” as they used to be. Do not take anything for granted, one day, someone on the other side of the world could be writing about us.
