US Needs to Do More to End Forced Organ Harvesting in China, Panel Says
WASHINGTON—The Chinese regime has been killing Falun Gong practitioners for their organs for more than 20 years and the United States needs to step up its efforts to end the despicable practice, according to a panel of experts.
Speaking at a virtual panel hosted by advocacy group Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting (DAFOH) on Nov. 19, Rep. Steve Chabot (R-Ohio) condemned the regime’s forced organ harvesting from prisoners of conscience, calling it a “heinous and barbaric” practice.
“The last time the House of Representatives passed a resolution condemning the persecution of Falun Gong was about four years ago,” he said, referring to H.Res. 343. “We have had a lot of turnover in terms of members of Congress and staff since then. So for many people, this could be an entirely new issue to them.”
