Red China & Hospital Abuse

Recently, a group of patients from the largest hospital in China are attempting to talk with the government after being infected with HIV from various surgeries or transfusions. It appears that when they were seeking restitution from the mayor, a security guard beat one of the females, Wang, in the hallway. He apparently kicked her in the abdomen and threw her against a set of stairs. They then continued to wait to speak with government officials but to no avail. Breitbart reports:

Wang said she was infected in the largest hospital in the city of 1.4 million people during surgery in the 1990s, but she was unclear whether it was the surgery to remove a stomach tumor or to give birth.

A local court recently rejected Wang's lawsuit against the hospital.

"The courts should accept my case," Wang said. "I also want to know what the government policy is towards people like us. They've never told me what kind of assistance I'm supposed to get, what our rights are."

An employee who answered the phone at the government office denied anyone was beaten.
Like Wang, many
people in China have been infected with HIV while receiving blood transfusions in hospitals before China's blood supply was cleaned up at the turn of the century.

It's stories like this that should trigger national attention because this is blatant neglect for human rights. The international community witnesses this time and time again and is doing nothing about. It's frustrating because we choose to turn away from these abuses in hopes that China keeps supplying the local dollar store.

It's also kind of funny how all these human rights psychos never go after China for any violations, and only pick on the countries trying to conform.

The human rights abuses in China are atrocious. I have never understood why we don't take a harder stance against them.

Good post and major good point, Mr. Tastic!

I think that - besides the money factor of corporations being able to pay lower wages to Chinese factory workers - is the fact that we conservatives are so tied up fighting the liberal agenda in this country that our basket is full to overflowing, while liberals don't really give a diddly squat about human rights at all. If they really did, they'd be howling to the roof about what goes on in China and other countries. One can't help notice that the women's movement in this country ignores the atrocious conditions that middle-east women live under. I rest my case.

It is very disturbing the things that go on in China. China and Russia are also connected at the hip and both are partnering up with rogue nations.

As you said, now the U.S. is in a position to turn a blind eye...due to the all the imports.

They are not a friend of ours...but they remain out of the spotlight...I have a feeling we are going to hear more about China in days to come, esp. when Russia and China will fight to allow Iran to continue doing as they are. In my opinion Iran already has the bomb....Something I watched recently spoke about how China really does hate the U.S.
