Investigation lead: why is it so easy to get organs in Mainland China? Who are the donors?

One of my relatives was diagnosed with liver cancer in 2007. His friend advised him to get a liver transplant. The friend said his relative works at the Chongqing City Party School and has access to liver sources; that it would also be cheaper to get it through his relative.

My relative did not want to get a transplant. He was told at the hospital that his condition was unsuitable for a liver transplant. But I always wondered: are they still harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners?

Recently I heard a friend saying her brother-in-law was diagnosed with liver cancer last year, and he underwent liver transplant surgery at a medical school in Chongqing in July 2008, which cost him more than 500,000 Yuan [$73,242 USD]. Two other liver cancer patients received new livers at the same time as him, and all three surgeries were successful.

I was sad when I heard this. When I had previously heard of various kinds of transplants, I didn't pay much attention; none of us ever thought about where the organs came from. When the Communist Party's crime of harvesting Falun Gong practitioners' organs was exposed in March 2006, I suddenly connected all the dots, and I was sad and angry. Even more shocking is that it is still extremely easy three years later to get organs in China. Where do the organs come from? It makes one suspect that the live organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners is still happening in China.
