“Thriving” Trade in China From Selling Prisoners’ Organs


The BBC reports that China is continuing its policy of selling the organs of executed prisoners--only with the "consent" of the prisoners, of course. But there aren't enough executions in China, or procurements from those who die by other means, to explain all of the organs being sold there. So, where do the surplus organs come from? The story of harvesting Falun Gong, to me, remains the best hypothesis. This issue demands an international investigation.
