How does a country which, until 2010 didn’t even have an organ donation system, become the place where everyone goes to get organs not available elsewhere?
For years, China claimed that these organs came from executed prisoners. But when experts compared the number transplants carried out with the number of people executed, they found a large discrepancy. Yet China remains the only place in the world where you can get a heart and lung transplant in less than a week. So where are all these organs coming from?
In this award winning documentary, Nobel Peace Prize nominees David Matas and David Kilgour reveal how most of these organs come from Falun Gong practitioners, killed to order. They speak to doctors forced to remove organs from live political prisoners, to former prisoners of conscience, subjected to repeated blood tests, and to hospital clinics, who readily admit to having no problem obtaining ’live’ organ donors. An eye-opening investigation into the organ harvesting trade in China.
