Report alleges China killing thousands to harvest organs

Report alleges China killing thousands to harvest organs
Chinese hospitals are conducting far more organ-transplant operations than the country has officially acknowledged, according to a lengthy new report that raises troubling questions about the source of human body parts used to heal China’s elite and the foreigners who pay high prices to receive new kidneys and livers.

Although much of China’s transplant industry is shrouded in secrecy, officials have said 146 approved hospitals transplanted 7,785 organs last year.

But a team of researchers, including two prominent Canadian human-rights activists, has sifted through a huge number of hospital records, accounts from doctors, press clippings and public statements to tabulate numbers of Chinese transplant-centre beds and doctors – and from that has calculated how many transplants take place.

By their count, Chinese surgeons are transplanting between 60,000 and 100,000 organs a year, a number they say far surpasses the volume of kidneys, livers and hearts available from voluntary donors.

You know, I don't even know what to say about this. This is transplant industrialized that makes me wonder if they are marhcing people in and butchering them for their organs.
Very frightening.

1. alleges? I want to see a report outside of Canada and Great Britain confirm this. UK was not very

happy when they had to give up control of Hong Kong, and there are still political influences that wish for the good old colonization days

One small sentence in the article disputes it:

"Jeremy Chapman, an Australian transplant surgeon and former president of the Transplantation Society, which is based in Montreal, called the estimates in the new report “pure imagination piled upon political intent.”

but the sources contributing to this report, are not unbiased reports.
