Chinese Harvesting Organs…Still

Well, my last impression was they were going to try to cut down on this (also see: this post). However, a report from a former Canadian official says the military is harvesting organs for sale from LIVE PRISONERS (not just the ones who are executed).

[The] report, released today, includes interviews with organ recipients in 30 countries and Canadian hospital staff who cared for more than 100 patients who had undergone suspicious transplant surgeries in China.

“The involvement of the People’s Liberation Army in these transplants is widespread,” Mr Kilgour said at a press conference.

Like many civilian hospitals in rural China, military hospitals turned to selling organs to make up for government funding cuts in the 1980s, the report said.

But military personnel could operate with much more secrecy, it said.

“Recipients often tell us that even when they receive transplants at civilian hospitals, those conducting the operation are military personnel,” the report said
