CHINA - For the umpteenth time, Beijing announces the end of organ harvesting from prisoners [AN]

Long criticised by the international community, China will end the practice in 2015, said the director of the China Organ Donation and Transplant Committee. However, Chinese authorities have been saying that same thing for years without actual results. Ordinary Chinese also have concerns about whether the organs will be allocated in a fair, open and just way."


Why shouldn’t organs be harvested? If you support capital punishment as retribution (or even as removing someone dangerous) then harvesting organs just adds a benefit to society.
