Doctors against organ harvesting

Mounting evidence and eyewitness statements confirm that since 2006 a terrible scene of murder and abuse is taking place in China: Tens of thousands Falun Gong prisoners of conscience are being used as a live donor bank and killed for their organs once a patient comes.

Shocked by the evidence, doctors worldwide have expressed their horror about this state-sponsored "reverse matching" killing practice. Amongst those medical experts is Dr Jacob Lavee, one of the initiators of the Israeli law banning access to Chinese organs in 2008.

We cannot repeat the same story that went on during the Second World War, during the Holocaust, where the entire world knew about the Holocaust of the Jewish people and did nothing. Here we know about the genocide of people within China, about the crime against humanity that is taking place in China, and I needed to do something about it.. Once the supply of potential transplant patients from all over the world to China will stop, this will definitely increase the pressure on China to stop the use of those Falun Gong practitioners.

— Dr Jacob Lavee, Professor of Surgery, the Faculty of Medicine, Tel Aviv University

Below, more articles can be found from medical professionals giving their support by calling upon China to immediately end the forced organ harvesting from detained Falun Gong practitioners. An example is DAFOH (Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting), whose website has a worldwide petition to stop organ harvesting you can also sign.
