Back in 2016, we reported on an illicit organ trading scheme taking place in communist China, where still-living political prisoners were having their vital organs plucked from their bodies to facilitate the organ demands of “transplant tourists.” Well, this highly unethical practice is apparently still going on, undercover investigators have revealed – even though the Chinese government once promised to put an end to the horrific practice – and it’s all essentially happening right in plain sight.
According to reports, undercover investigators in Canada recently decided to deepen a more than decade-long probe into what had been longstanding allegations of forced organ harvesting in China, which is said to specifically target Falun Gong prisoners of conscience. What they found is that hospitals throughout China are still wheeling and dealing high-dollar body parts on-demand to wealthy buyers, and without consequence.
Human rights lawyer David Matas, along with former Secretary of State David Kilgour, were among the first to uncover evidence as far back as 2006 showing that Falun Gong prisoners of conscience were being used as literal human resources to generate large profits from the sale of their vital organs on the black market. They later published a report entitled, “Bloody Harvest: The Killing of Falun Gong for Their Organs,” which concluded that the frightening suspicions of what continues to go on in China are, in fact, true.
As part of their investigation, these researchers called various hospitals throughout China, posing as patients in need of organs or for their relatives, and made honest-sounding inquiries. And many of the medical professionals they spoke to had no qualms about openly admitting that they have organs for sale, and that these organs are routinely harvested from Falun Gong prisoners of conscience.
In one case, one posing patient was told that he would only need to wait a week before his requested organs became available. After being told that the organ he wanted came from a “very good” Falun Gong prisoner of conscience, this same posing patient then inquired as to how this could be proven, to which he received the following response:
“Well, when the time comes, then our side, our boss will have people showing you information. You can be sure. We have connections with government officials. There are connections to high-ranking officials. I will show you such material even if you don’t ask me for it.”

Since many Falun Gong prisoners of conscience refuse to give their real names upon being captured, the Chinese government apparently brands many of them with “code numbers” instead, which are then used for identification when their organs and other body parts are harvested and put up for sale on the black market.
This was likewise confirmed by the aforementioned medical professional, who admitted during a call that this horrific practice is “quite normal,” and that it doesn’t interfere with the process of obtaining organs for buyers.
“If their names couldn’t be identified, there would be their code numbers,” this hospital official explained.
“Also, one can be tracked by fingerprints … Like our boss, like the connections to the detention centers, I cannot say casually. We have close relationships with them. Since we are engaging in this business, we have our people in each and every department.”
During another call to another hospital, another posing organ patient asked if he could obtain an organ from a “young and healthy” Falun Gong prisoner, to which he was told that this would be no problem at all – indicating that the Chinese government is harvesting organs from underage children.
Be sure to peruse the many other transcripts of calls made to Chinese hospitals, confirming that organs are illicitly harvested from Falun Gong prisoners of conscience and sold for big bucks to wealthy buyers, as published by The Epoch Times.
