Transcript of Forced Organ Donations

What is Forced Organ Donations?
Falun Gong
The Falun Gong is also know as 'Falun Dafa'
The Falun Gong consists of moral teachings, meditation and four gentle exercises
70 million + people practice Falun Gong
estimate 40,000 - 65,000 Falun Gong practitioners were taken, had their organs removed and killed
unprotected from human rights violations
Consequentialism
Definition:
the view that the moral judgment of an action is based solely on the outcomes of an action

Is this a good outcome or a bad one?
one organ donor can save up to 8 lives
+ kill one man = save 8 men
= good outcome

Consequentialism
would argue that is indeed moral to capture a man, torture and kill him, to get his organs to help up to 8 other men.

Importance of this Issue & Putting it into Perspective
It is important to spread our knowledge about forced organ donations. Knowledge is power and we have the power.

To put it into perspective:
90% of Canadians support organ donation, but under 25% have agreed to donate
If EVERY SINGLE PERSON in Toronto agreed to be an organ donor, in one year we would have enough donors to fulfill 30% of the worlds needs for organs resulting in a decreasing amount of forced organ donations
Forced Organ Donations
A Story of a Forced Organ Donation
By: Maddy Steele
It is an organ donation, without the donors consent
Most donors are prisoners, while some are taken off the street
Over 80% of transplants are prisoners
This 6 year old was drugged, kidnapped and found in a field without his eyes.
Would you do it for someone in need?
