NTDTV: Watch Video: Illegal organ transplants are becoming more widespread in China, says Canadian human rights lawyer David Matas. Mr. Matas says a growing number of organs are being harvested from prisoners of conscience.
The Nobel Peace Prize nominee touched down in Melbourne, Australia this past week to speak at the 63rd annual UN conference on Advanced Global Health.
Matas travels the globe drawing attention to the contents of a book he co-authored called Bloody Harvest. Bloody Harvest details allegations that the Chinese communist regime is harvesting organs from prisoners of conscience, followers of the persecuted spiritual practice Falun Gong.
Matas believes forced organ harvesting in China is not only continuing, but increasing.
Voluntary organ donations are practically unheard of in China, and according to the World Health Organization, the vast majority of transplant organs come from executed prisoners.
