Forced Organ Harvesting

In China, the wait for a vital organ is less than a month, and over 10,000 organs are transplanted per year. With no effective donation system, where do these organs come from?  Many are harvested from prisoners of conscience, who are mostly Falun Gong practitioners.

“Transplant abuses of this magnitude are crimes against humanity. Remaining silent in the face of such atrocities is to be complicit in these crimes.”
—Dr. Arthur Caplan, Dr. Alejandro Centurion, and Dr. Jianchao Xu

 

Persecution

During the 1990s in China, over 70 million people took up the practice of Falun Gong, which, at the time, was openly promoted by Chinese authorities. However, communist leaders came to fear that Falun Gong was ideological competition because of its independence, popularity, and traditional spiritual content.  In July 1999, the Communist Party launched a campaign to eradicate Falun Gong through extensive propaganda, mass imprisonment, torture, and organ harvesting. The atrocities continue to this day.

Multiple independent investigations estimate that 40,000-65,000 Falun Gong practitioners have been killed to fuel China’s lucrative organ transplant industry.

Help save lives and put an end to this crime against humanity.
