Researchers claim Chinese surgeons excise prisoners’ hearts while they are “still alive.”

Chinese surgeons cut out prisoners’ hearts while they were still alive as part of a horror organ harvesting program, according to a study.

Researchers from the Australian National University (ANU) searched thousands of Chinese medical documents and concluded that surgeons killed prisoners during the operation.

The authors say their computer models refute Chinese claims that all prisoners were brain dead before their organs were excised. The times reports.

The study, published in the American Journal of Transplantation, says some inmates were still alive, but not necessarily conscious, on the operating table — in violation of global medical guidelines.

The research was led by Matthew Robertson, a politics student, and Jacob Lavee, a heart surgeon and professor at the Sackler School of Medicine Tel Aviv University.

Robertson said, “We found that the doctors became executioners on behalf of the state and that the method of execution was heart removal.”

“These surgeries are very profitable for the doctors and hospitals that deal with them.”

The authors collated 2,838 articles on transplant procedures in China between 1980 and 2020 and found that in 71 cases, brain death was not properly assessed before organ harvesting.

“If the reports we have examined are accurate, they indicate that the surgeon’s removal of the heart and lungs was the immediate cause of the prisoner’s death, thereby directly implicating the surgeon in the execution,” the researchers said.

And they fear the real number could be much higher because inconclusive results are omitted from the reports.

The authors said the papers didn’t directly identify the donors as prisoners, but it was clear that very few voluntary donations were being made in China.

China pledged to overhaul its transplant system in 2007 and pledged to end the practice of harvesting organs from executed prisoners in 2015.

Robertson claims surgeons operated on death row inmates and “political prisoners,” which may include political prisoners and the persecuted Uyghur minority.

“While we don’t know exactly how these prisoners end up on the operating table, we can speculate that there are several worrying scenarios for how this happens,” he told the Australian Financial Review.

“These include a bullet in the prisoner’s head before he is immediately taken to the hospital, or a drug injection that paralyzes the prisoner.”
