Miss World Canada Anastasia Lin Calls for Action on Forced Organ Harvesting
WASHINGTON—In a recent screening of an award-winning film on China’s organ harvesting, star actress and former Miss World Canada Anastasia Lin again called for policymakers and others with influence to pay attention and to help stop the crime of organ harvesting perpetuated by the Chinese regime against Falun Gong practitioners.
The 2016 film “‘The Bleeding Edge,” which won the Gabriel Award for best filmin 2016, tells the dark story of the organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners in China. The film has previously been screened at the Canadian and United Kingdom parliaments.
In the film, Anastasia Lin plays Falun Gong practitioner Chen Jing, who is jailed by the Chinese regime and is offered the choice of either signing a document renouncing her spiritual practice or facing torture. Despite being subjected to horrendous torture and abuse in the “correctional facility,” Jing refuses to give in and is eventually murdered, with her organs harvested.
