The Chinese Communist Party has been known for a variety of heinous acts against religious groups.

The infamous group makes the ideological persecution perpetrated by Democrats look like child’s play at best.

Now the U.S. House just made one move to hold Communist China accountable that no one saw coming.

Religious persecution in China is brought into international spotlight

While the American people watch Democrats weaponize the government against their political enemies, far more egregious acts of persecution are taking place in China.

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has been persecuting religious groups like the Falun Gong by placing them in prison camps.

The Falun Gong have been facing such horrific acts for nearly two decades without any interest of most western governments.

Of course, that doesn’t mean they’re the only ones being targeted.

Christians, Tibetans, and Uyghur Muslims are also on the list of people that often find themselves in the Communist Chinese concentration camps.

It’s unclear how many religious prisoners have been taken, but it’s undoubtedly reached the hundreds of thousands.

Once imprisoned, they are subjected to horrific conditions, like forced organ harvesting and ultimately death. 

Now, American lawmakers are finally putting Beijing in the spotlight.

Lawmakers say it’s time to hold the CCP accountable

The Stop Forced Organ Harvesting Act just passed the House by a vote of 413 to 2.

The vote was met with applause by both sides of the aisle, and championed as a win for those who have been persecuted.

The bill will now go to the Senate where it also has wide support.

Senator Chris Coons (D-DE) called the practice “cruel and immoral,” and that it is usually “targeting ethnic and religious minorities and some of the most vulnerable groups in the world.”

He went on to say that the bill will empower “the Biden administration to take action…”

Rep. Greg Murphy (R-NC) called forced organ harvesting “horrifying and repulsive.”

He said it’s “a moral issue that transcends politics,” adding that it’s “a matter of good versus evil, and it is the responsibility of the United States to take the lead against the murderous practice.”

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), a co-signer of the Senate bill, said that “China’s geocidal regime has subjected groups Beijing deems a threat including Uyghurs and Falun Gong practitioners, to unimaginable human rights violations,” and that “the United States must hold the CCP accountable…”

Activists fighting back against the CCP practice called the passage a “message” to the world.

The move should inspire governments around the world to stand up

Susie Hughes, executive director of the International Coalition to End Transplant Abuse in China, said this legislation was “one of the most significant international responses to the China Tribunal’s Judgment to date.”

She said she hopes the move by American lawmakers will inspire other countries to follow suit.

Former U.N. Ambassador, and president of Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, Andrew Bremberg, said that “the passage of this legislation sends a clear message to not only China, but the rest of the world that thee United States will not turn a blind eye to this atrocity.”

Bremberg said that the practice “has been shamefully ignored by institutions and governments influenced by China for far too long.”

He said that he hopes the Senate will “quickly take up this bill, pass it, and send it to the President Biden so it can become law.”
