Petition can help stop inhumane practice (Forced Organ Harvesting)

The following is a letter-to-editor that Idaho practitioners published on Idaho Statesman, a daily newspaper in the state of Idaho. 
Petition can help stop inhumane practice
Stop forced organ harvesting in China. Your signature can save lives. Please sign the official White House petition to stop forced organ harvesting: Hundreds of thousands of Falun Gong practitioners are being held in prison camps across China.
For the past decade they have been medically tested, killed and used as a living donor bank for China’s lucrative organ transplant industry. Amidst growing international condemnation of these horrific crimes, three American doctors have launched a petition on the White House website urging President Obama to investigate and publicly condemn this unprecedented crime. Under the site’s rules, if the petition garners 25,000 signatures in 30 days, the White House promises to respond. The deadline for this petition is Jan. 1.
The U.S. State Department’s 2011 Human Rights Report cited allegations of organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners. In October, 106 members of Congress wrote to Secretary Clinton requesting the release of information regarding the gruesome act of organ harvesting. Two congressional hearings have covered the topic, while leading transplantation doctors from around the world have condemned this crime against humanity. Every minute counts for those in China. Sign now and help save lives.
