NCRI – As a sign of disastrous living condition of the Iranian people, The horrible phenomena of selling one’s kidney out of poverty, is wide spreading on daily basis.
On Monday February 27, Hossein Ali Shahriari, Regime’s MP from Southeastern city of Zahedan stated in this regard in an interview with state run ‘Shafa online’, that if a poor person is selling his kidney for $5000 – 8000 and has a change in his living condition, so what? Is there anything wrong with it?
He further added: “some people need kidney to continue their lives, some people are living with one kidney, and there are no side effects for it!”
It is worth mentioning that while the massive wealth of Ali Khamenei and other senior officials of the Iranian regime and the theft of billions of dollars by those affiliated to the regime are subject of talk all over Iran, the number of people resorting to selling their organs to make ends meet in Iran under the mullahs’ regime is escalating significantly.
While selling blood, kidneys and livers is now common in Iran, currently this market is witnessing a growing trend of human eyes being placed for sale, reports indicate.
Deprived people that literally cannot make ends meet for themselves or their family due to extreme poverty and unemployment have no other choice but to sell their organs at risk to their health.
“Seventy percent of all kidney transplants in Iran were from living individuals, whereas in other countries across the globe this rate is only 15%,” admitted Mohammad Reza Ganji, head of the Iranian regime’s nephrology Association.
“New market for buying and selling eyeballs”, “Kidneys for sale with discount”, “Kidneys for sale, AB+, 18 year old”, “Liver for sale, O-, 23 year old”, and “bone marrow for sale, B-, 54 year old” are just some of the writings advertising organ sales on the Internet and on walls in cities across Iran.
The mullahs’ regime does not impose restrictions on living individuals selling their organs and has in fact made this a tool for embezzling the deprived people of Iran. A large number of websites and blogs launched for this very cause are actually encouraging this viciousness and evil trade.
These developments are taking place as mullahs are allocating billions of dollars of the Iranian people’s wealth for the export of terrorism and fundamentalism and warmongering across the region, especially in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and Yemen to maintain this repulsive regime in power in any way possible.
