Transplantationstourismus

Screenshot BAG

Aus Ländern wie China oder Indien sind Fälle von Handel mit Organen verstorbener oder lebender Personen bekannt. Die Umstände, unter denen den Betroffenen Organe entnommen werden, widersprechen in vielfacher Weise den ethischen Grundsätzen, die in unserer Gesellschaft die Transplantationsmedizin anleiten. Und doch sind es oft Patientinnen und Patienten aus Gesellschaften mit strengen Regeln, die von diesem Handel profitieren. > Weiterlesen

The Ethics of Organ Transplantation

The Ethics of Organ Transplantation

An ever-increasing demand for organs, with over 100,000 people on waiting lists, has driven a relentless search for new sources of organs.

In 1999 the Chinese government began removing organs from members of the politically outcast religious group Falun Gong, making a lucrative profit from sales to foreigners.

Bloody Harvest

LITERATUR_Matas-Kilgour_Bloody Harvest

The killing of Falun Gong for their organs

Falun Gong is a modern day spiritual/exercise movement which began in China in 1991 drawing on and combining ancient Chinese traditions. The Chinese Communist Party, alarmed at the growth of the movement and fearing for its own ideological supremacy banned the movement in 1999. Falun Gong practitioners were arrested in the hundreds of thousands and asked to recant. If they did not, they were tortured. If they still did not recant, they disappeared. Allegations surfaced in 2006 that the disappeared were being killed for their organs which were sold for large sums mostly to foreign transplant tourists. It is generally accepted that China kills prisoners for organs. The debate is over whether the prisoners who are killed are only criminals sentenced to death or Falun Gong practitioners as well. The authors produced a report concluding that the allegations were true. “Bloody Harvest” sets out the investigations and conclusions of the authors.
