Could this evil really be happening?

Can you imagine a government so evil that it oversees the execution of its citizens for the harvest and sale of body parts?

It sounds like a bad sci-fi movie but according to reliable investigations, this is what is happening right now in China.

My regular Wednesday morning guest on 98.5 Sonshine FM is Ross Clifford who is the Principal of Morling College in New South Wales and current President of the Baptist Union of Australia. Each week we chat about a range of issues relating to spirituality and belief.

Today we talked about the persecution of members of the religious movement, Falun Gong, and the accusation that members of the group are being used for a worldwide trade in body parts. There is also concern that members of the underground Christian church may be suffering from the same kind of human rights abuses.

Ross highlighted the work of Canadian MP, David Kilgour, who describes himself in his biography as a practising Christian. David is part of a wide ranging investigation into the human rights abuses in China. Together with David Matas he has published An Independent Investigation into Allegations of organ Harvesting of Falun gong practitioners in China.

So what are we to do with this information? How do we call for greater transparency in the actions of those in power in China? How do we send a message to the Chinese Government that this is unacceptable? These were a couple of the issues Ross and I discussed this morning.
