Is China still harvesting organs from prisoners?


China said in 2014 it planned to stop using organs from executed prisoners, but if this report is to be believed, that didn’t happen.

The report accuses China of using organs from executed prisoners, many of whom were being detained for political reasons, such as Christians or members of ethnic minorities, like the Uighurs.


This is one of those cases in which, if you have to ask, the question is already answered.


For those who favor capital punishment I’d ask, why not?
If someone has been found guilty after a fair trial why shouldn’t his organs be harvested?
