The book brings together investigative and opinion articles written by Dr. Torsten Trey, MD, Arthur Caplan, PhD, Dr. Ghazli Ahmad, MD, Ethan Gutmann, Erping Zhang, David Matas, David Kilgour and Jan Harvey, Jacob Lavee, Gabriel Danovitch and Maria A. Fiatarone Sigh on the unspeakable monstrous crime being committed by the Chinese Communist regime: Harvesting the organs of prisoners of conscience - a best estimate of 60,000 of them in the last six or so years - for tourist transplantation for monetary gains to all involved in the incarceration, blood-testing, marketing, surgically removing every usable organ of live prisoners of conscience and transplanting them in the military and major hospitals in China to those urgently seeking organ transplants of heart, kidney, lungs, spleen, cornea etc. Prices range from US$100,000 for heart to $60,000 for kidney etc.
China has set up a plastination factory to plastinate these hollowed out bodies for sale for exhibitions and medical research - one of such exhibitions came to Winnipeg in 2012.
The Great Cultural Revolution of Mao Tse Tung, was intended to destroy the 5,000 year old ancient Chinese culture and civilization and to replace it with the Communist Party culture of atheism. Without that they would not be able to brainwash the Chinese people to toe the Party line and follow Party policies. Now China is a place where wealth increases but men decay. So it is not surprising that the end of gaining wealth quickly justifies the means of killing live prisoners of conscience and in significant tens of thousands of them.
That is what these men of great wisdom and Human Rights activists have written to awaken the people of the world to. So, the opening dedication and quotation of the book is: "When will we end injustice? When those who are not victims feel as much outrage as those who are." Solon.
This book is a must read for all people of conscience and all governments, NGOs.
The earlier investigation into this Chinese State perpetrated atrocity was the seminal book: "Bloody Harvest" by David Kilgour and David Matas. Earlier in 2005 or so, they saw on-line offers of blood-matched organs: Hearts, kidneys, lungs, spleens, cornea - you name it - in one or two weeks - performed in China. These two Human Rights activists were stunned and worried. They captured their web ads, documented the response to their calls to China posing as patients seeking transplant, gathered evidence from defecting organ harvesting surgeons from China and ultimately wanted to visit China, but the Chinese Communist regime would not grant them visa for the visit. So they gathered more evidence and wrote the report, as high level lawyers using "proof and disproof" - a methodology whereby with overwhelming corroborating evidence if you cannot disproof it, that proves (I am a lay person when it comes to legal terms).

Extract from article by Dr. Wenyi Wang titled: "Taking Pride in Plundering Organs in China" (Google searchable) Agu 28, 2012: "I was in Boston for the American Transplantation Conference (ATC) meetings this year. I was helping to host an international booth for the organization Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting (DAFOH) in the ATC exhibition hall...
"On the afternoon of June 4, Dr. Zhang Weihua and another doctor from the Tianjin City Oriental Transplant Hospital (affiliated with the First Tianjin Central Hospital) stopped by our booth.
"After the two doctors looked through our materials, Dr. Zhang said to the four of us with DAFOH: "You are all doctors originally from China, so you know China used to rank 70th or 80th in transplant medicine. Now China has advanced to be No. 1 in the world. During this process, some people sacrificed their lives, but it is okay and not a big deal."
"My heart and soul cried out when I heard these words, but for anyone like me, who grew up under the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), his words, however heartbreaking, were not surprising."
One of the articles in "State Organs" states that Chinese Vice Minister of Health said that, in fact, China is using executed prisoners as their primary source. (He was careful to say "executed prisoners" but did not commit himself to "prisoners or conscience being the source". The minister stated taht the current strategy of relying on executed prisoners would be changed in the next three to five years."
