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.

A Japanese court, in a landmark ruling, has convicted a non-profit executive of facilitating illegal overseas organ transplants for Japanese citizens.

Hiromichi Kikuchi, chairman of the Association for Patients of Intractable Diseases, a non-profit organization, received an eight-month prison term and a fine of 1 million yen (around $6,800) for arranging organ transplants abroad for two Japanese citizens without government approval.

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. 

In the early 2000s doctors around the world began to notice large numbers of their patients flying to China for organ transplants. An organ was typically ready within a week. The availability and number of organs was baffling, until horrific stories began to leak out. It was rumoured that hospitals were harvesting live Falun Gong practitioners for their organs. Reports from the inside confirm China’s unimaginable harvesting of human-beings.
