Controversial doco investigates China’s organ donation system
Two Canadian researchers insist that there is sufficient evidence to believe claims of organ harvesting.
China’s organ transplant system is highly controversial. The government admits that most of the organs used to come from executed prisoners. The official policy changed on January 1, when the head of China’s organ donation committee, Huang Jiefu, announced that only voluntarily donated organs from civilians can be used in transplants.
There are many reports that organs have come from prisoners of conscience, especially Falun Gong members, not criminals on death row. This is angrily denied by the Chinese government.
In this documentary, “Human Harvest: China’s Organ Trafficking”, which appeared on Australia’s SBS channel, two Canadian researchers, David Kilgour and David Matas, insist that there is sufficient evidence to believe claims of organ harvesting by the Falun Gong. (If the YouTube video is not visible in your region, here is a link to an article on the SBS website.)
