Transcript of FORCED ORGAN HARVESTING


It is the harvesting of organs from executed prisoners in china.
This started in 1994 when a law was implemented, (meaning when the law was put into action) in china to allow the practice.
THE CHINESE LAW
The law states involuntary organ harvesting is illegal, though under the 1984 law that was passed it became legal to remove organ from already executed prisoners.
THE LAW
These prisoners would already have given the prior permission of the criminal or the criminal's family to make this practice legal.
LOOP HOLES
The chinese has been covering up this practice for years. In Hong Kong the main liver transplant hospital(Queen Mary Hospital) holds evidence that can be used to expose this practice and a lot of people are trying to bring this to justice.
Justice
There are many people and organizations trying to stop this practice. There is a petition in Bankok to end forced organ harvesting, David Matas, a canadian human rights lawyer is trying to prove that the Queen Mary Hospital does this, a petition initiated by doctors in taiwon against this practice has gathered more than 23,000 signatures. In all nearly 1.5 million people around the world have signed petitions to stop this.
Violated rights
Article 1: People have the right to decide if they want to be organ donors or not.
Article 7: Everyone should be treated equally by the law and shouldn't have their organs taken if that is not what they choose.
Article 17: Everyone has the right to have belongings, no one has the right to take them away, it is your decision what happens with them.
