House Speaker Mike Johnson Calls Out Against China’s Organ Harvesting
From The Epoch Times:
WASHINGTON—House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) on Jan. 31 highlighted concerns about the Chinese Communist Party’s forced organ harvesting of faith adherents, identifying the regime as among “some of the most repressive in the world” for its human rights abuses.
“Tibetan Buddhists and Falun Gong practitioners are placed in forced labor camps, and they have their organs harvested by the Chinese Communist Party,” Mr. Johnson said during a speech at the International Religious Freedom Summit in Washington.
He also highlighted Beijing’s “genocidal campaign of forced sterilization, forced detention, and reeducation” against Uyghurs in the northwestern Xinjiang region.
Such a regime also has “the least to offer their citizens in terms of economic prosperity and social mobility, and it’s no surprise, because if you’re going to restrict and torment people for their religious beliefs, it’s going to be a tyrannical regime,” he said.
