Forced Organ Harvesting
Forced organ harvesting is the execution of a political prisoner via the harvesting of his or her organs. It is taking place as we speak in China, where political dissidents and religious minorities such as practitioners of Falun Gong, Uighur Muslims, and house church Christians are forced to undergo blood and tissue typing as part of their arrest. Their organs are then put on the market for transplant tourists who come to China from all over the world, and who arrive ready for surgery on the date that the political prisoner is scheduled to be killed. Sadly, though this practice is prohibited by law in many countries, some American insurance companies still provide Chinese transplant tourism as a covered benefit.
We are grateful for the work of Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting for their work and advocacy against this egregious practice.
For more information on this practice, we highly recommend the film "Human Harvest" from Journeyman Pictures and Flying Cloud Productions, directed by Leon Lee.
