Cuba’s Blood Exports: A Scandalous Business

Maria Werlau exposes another crime against humanity by Cuba’s Castro dictatorship. Unfortunately, the heinous act of draining and then selling the blood of your opponents is not a new endeavor for the Castro crime family. They have been doing it since they took power in 1959.

Juan Pérez Cabrera refused to give his blood before his execution and was shot in the head. April 15, 1963.

On July 26, 2013, the Montevideo based El País reported sales for the year 2012 of $ 0.9 million by Cuba to Uruguay of “human or animal blood for therapeutic uses. A subsequent El País editorial clarified that the reported imports were primarily of human blood. Most of Uruguay’s citizens presumably remain uninformed of the origin and handling of this blood supply. Meanwhile, there is no mention of blood exports in Cuba’s official statistics, though they are hardly known for their transparency and have only been released through 2011.

In Cuba’s entirely state controlled health system, all citizens excepting the high ranking nomenklatura must provide at least one blood donation as a condition for admission to a hospital or for any surgical procedure even minor ones not requiring blood transfusions. (Usually family members fulfill the requirement, but in some cases third parties are paid in informal arrangements.) Yet, Cuba has no blood supply deficits; it reports a 100% rate of “voluntary altruistic donors” to the World Health Organization and the Pan American Health Organization (WHO/PAHO).

Cubans ignore that the gover nment uses their blood to run an international moneymaking business. Meanwhile, excepting the ruling elite, most citizens remain impoverished by the socialist command economy; the average monthly wage is 466 Cuban pesos, equivalent to US$19 a month or 63 cents a day.
