The killing of Falun Gong prisoners of conscience in China for their organs was exposed in two reports and a 2009 book by Canadians David Matas and David Kilgour.
The book, “Bloody Harvest,” revealed how Falun Gong prisoners who refused to recant after torture and who have “disappeared” by the thousands, were killed to supply human organs to feed a lucrative transplant tourism market.
After the allegations hit the mainstream press, in July 2006 the Chinese regime passed a law banning the sale of organs without the consent of the donor. However, Matas says the practice has actually increased since then.
“There remains a discrepancy between the volume of transplants and the volume of sources,” he told The Epoch Times from his home in Regina.
“If anything the discrepancy is increasing, because the death penalty is going down and transplant volumes are going up. So if you look at it simply in terms of death penalty statistics and volume of transplants, then we’d have to conclude that the problem is not just continuing but getting worse.”
