Making Sense of “Health Examinations” in Prison and Forced Labor Camp

December 09, 2013 | By a practitioner from Sichuan Province, China

(Minghui.org) I am a Falun Gong practitioner from Sichuan. I was illegally sentenced to prison and held in the Sichuan Provincial Women’s Prison in Yangmahe, Jianyang City. I was subjected to many physical examinations while detained there.

The doctors at the prison collaborated with the guards in actively persecuting Falun Gong practitioners. For example, when practitioners went on a hunger strike, the doctors would intentionally inflict pain when force-feeding them.

The practitioners were subjected to several physical examinations, which included X-rays of the internal organs and blood draws.

I was held for almost three years, but never told about any examination results. I suspect that these physical examinations were done for possible harvesting of my organs.

Health Examinations at the Beijing Women’s Forced Labor Camp

All practitioners detained in the Beijing Women’s Forced Labor Camp were forced to give blood and have a chest X-ray every six months. Many practitioners had such tests done eight or more times. Such frequent examinations are typically out of the ordinary.

According to the guards, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) officials had spent a large sum of money to purchase a mobile X-ray equipment for this purpose.

The persons drawing the blood did not sterilize the needles. They drew a lot of blood and do not provide results to practitioners.

I believe the reason for the health examinations was to collect information of practitioners for possible organ extraction.

I would like to urge international organizations to investigate the crimes of organ harvesting in the Sichuan Women’s Prison and Beijing Women’s Forced Labor Camp.
