Today, on the World Day Against Trafficking in Persons, Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting (DAFOH) calls the attention of the world to China’s unethical practice of removing organs from non-consenting living prisoners of conscience.
PARIS, May 6, 2022 — Forced Organ Harvesting from living people specifically to sell their organs for profitable transplant surgeries is among the most egregious crimes against humanity conceivable. Witnesses first testified about China’s abuses before U.S. Congress in 2001. In 2006, allegations were raised of the brutal persecution of Falun Gong, a peaceful spiritual discipline that follows the principles of truthfulness, compassion and tolerance whose adherents are subjected to the industrialized practice of organ harvesting throughout China’s military and civilian hospital systems.
