Over the past three decades, tough sentencing laws have contributed to a doubling of the country’s prison population, with laws like the ‘Three Strikes and You’re Out’ mandating life sentences for a wide range of crimes.

It’s being called “abhorrent” and a “crime against humanity.” Allegations of forced organ harvesting in China started to surface in 2006. Since then, mounting evidence suggests these allegations are true—and even worse than originally suspected.
Prisoners of conscience—especially Falun Gong—are being killed for their organs.
Starting in 1999, the number of transplant centers in China increased by 300% in just 8 years, even though China has no effective national organ donation system. 1999 was the year the Chinese regime began persecuting adherents of the Falun Gong spiritual practice, sending hundreds of thousands to labor camps. Many of them were never seen again.
Transplant medicine was developed to save lives. But in China, innocent people are being killed for their organs—so they can be sold for profit.

Lady posted the track yesterday (July 17) on her website and the track has been making its rounds on the Web as well. Named after Casey Anthony, the young mother who was indicted on charges of murdering her 3-year daughter Caylee in 2008, Anthony’s case received massive media attention ahead of her July 5 acquittal this year of all charges. No stranger to being controversial herself, Lady’s aggressive track has little to do with the case itself with the title serving as nothing more as an attention-grabbing song title.
To Lady’s credit, the track’s motivational “keep your head up” shout out to the imprisoned and criticism supporting wrongly incarcerated inmates belies the sensational use of Casey Anthony’s name in the song’s title. Lady also manages to display a degree of depth as she decries the use of capital punishment as a means of justice.
