China Harvesting Organs from Thousands of Political Prisoners While They Are Alive


By John Vibes at


The Chinese government is facing public outcry amid fresh allegations that authorities have routinely had the organs of political prisoners illegally, forcibly removed.

According to Newsweek, well-respected investigators from all over the world agree that thousands of people have had their organs forcefully extracted, without anesthetic, while held in Chinese prisons. Many of the victims belong to a banned religious group called Falun Gong, a forbidden, though peaceful Chinese religion created in 1992. Members continue to face constant discrimination in the country.

Religious persecution is a serious threat for many people in China — in spite of the fact that the Communist government does not espouse an official state religion.

Throughout the years, that same government has imprisoned members of multiple dissident groups, including Tibetans and Christians. Individuals of these incarcerated groups have alleged severe abuse, including organ harvesting. The reported mistreatment and forced procedures date back to the 1990s and include the extractions of livers, corneas, and kidneys.

As researcher Katrina Bramstedt told Newsweek:

“It is known that Chinese surgeons perform the removal procedure [on political prisoners] and sometimes the ‘donor’ has still been alive during this process — the organ removal process is what actually kills them.”

The Chinese government has denied the claims. Officials insist they have never harvested any organs from prisoners against their will — and that all the “donations” are voluntary.

In a recent SBS Dateline documentary about this practice, a medical student said he remembered seeing blood running out of a live subject when he cut their body. He said he removed the individual’s liver and two kidneys, adding that the procedures on inmates were unusually fast and sloppy.

The documentary revealed how patients are secretly placed into incinerators in hospital boiler rooms while they are still alive — after organs are removed from their bodies.

Titled Human Harvest: China’s Organ Trafficking, the exposé found that during an eight-year investigation, the Chinese government took 11,000 organs from political prisoners without anesthetic each year.

One surgeon interviewed in the film said he removed corneas from 2,000 people while they were still alive.

According to a 2008 U.N. investigation found:

“It is reported that employees of several transplant centers [in China] have indicated that they have used organs from live Falun Gong practitioners for transplants.”

China is one of the world’s biggest harvesters of organs, but they reportedly have no organ donation program. This means there is no official record of where these organs originate.

In the video below, researchers suggest there is a massive financial incentive for the Chinese government to execute prisoners so their organs can be used for expensive transplants.

As Newsweek noted, in 2006, the selling price of organs was astronomically high: a liver could garner $98,000 to $130,000 while the price of a lung ranged from $150,000 to $170,000.

  1. Thank you for the article.

    There are people who are skeptical about the forced live organ harvesting of Falun Gong by the Chinese Communist Party. There are also people who say the evidence doesn’t support the claim, but these people are merely repeating what they’ve heard and haven’t actually looked at the evidence. If you’re going to talk about something, it’s best to know a little bit about it.
    Read the report for yourself here:

  2. Exchanging the health and lives of some for the profit of others? Now there’s an idea that we are already familiar with.

  3. So just how do you think it is being done in America? A person is not dead when the organs are harvested. Reason I am not an organ doner.

    • That’s not correct, in car crashes and fast deaths, first what is dying is your brain, then other parts dies slowly, so you are actually already dead, when your organs are harvested

    • Key word being doner, they are just taking them without permission which is illegal. Also, in the US they usually harvest after just after death unless it is a non-vital organ and even then you can refuse (even if you are on a doner list).

  4. As long as sum people make $$$$ they have no guilt how they make it. This tops the list of cruelly by taking parts from a body while awake.

  5. organ harvesting in the US is a ghoulish, for profit business. there are clear laws that ensure that a patient is clearly brain dead or recently deceased, but when this is established, non medical technicians, trained in human dissection, rush in and slice out anything useful. these organs are then a commodity, sold to the highest bidder by a growing business model. the further one investigates and learns about this for profit business model the less savory it becomes. Obviously if these allegations about Chinese organ harvesting are true, this is much, much worse an an unacceptable violation of human rights. there’s a saying about rumors… their usually true, but for sake of humanity, i really hope this story is false.

  6. The tears of all earths deceived beings have soaked the ground for long enough! We all have to stop this and protesting is NOT working. I’m not talking about violence or destructive acts either. The absolute best thing we can do as a planet (and I’ve mentioned this before in numerous posts), is to literally do nothing until positive change is enforced. That means but is not limited to – Stop working, stop buying anything, don’t use any energy provided by corporations, stop watching t.v., use this time to come together with your community to decide what the best steps are for yourselves. STOP RELYING on others to make your decisions. Are they going to arrest all of us? Are they going to murder all of us? Now is the time to forget the past and clean the slate, and we need to send a clear message that this will not be tolerated EVER AGAIN. This is not just for one country or government, this is for all of them! WE have the power, but we are too busy arguing amongst ourselves. I propose that we replace the entire worlds ruling classes with the most qualified (both practically and academically) groups of people, who inspire positive action and answer to everyone. Also, all corporate sponsorship/involvement of anything political, environmental or anything to do with our food supplies should be banned. Large businesses have shafted over the entire planet in the name of profit, and what the fuck for? I am angry and pissed off that we have let this go on for so long, and it’s all out of fear. When you strip back every single layer of our reality, you’ll see that we ride this shitstorm out of fear. Because, our leaders have convinced us that if we change from our current narrative, all hell will break loose and we will be worse off. Bullshit! They are providing just enough doubt for you to question and dismiss positive change. These people (not fucking aliens or reptilians or whatever else) have spent a lot of time and money researching psychology, body language and manipulation. This has been conducted through our various military agencies behind closed doors. I think its time we kicked those doors in and shone some Sun light on our ugly nature. And never let any of this happen again. Once we expose everything, we can then begin the healing process – an infected wound will not heal

  7. I have evidence. My mom helps many falungong survivors. We live in Thailand (china’s ally) that will give these refugees up when China embassy demands.
    Regardless, I have seen more often than any, cases where they(the refugees) come “incomplete”.
    I feel sorry for them. Tho I am not a follower of falungong, I don’t find any justification why some people are forced to give up their organs against their will.
    I urge all mankind to fight this evil. Im anyway. China is massive. So anyway or any form of defiance will do.

  8. Good grief, can’t believe this is is posted on Anon. This news is been faked in 1998 and still posted in 2016. It is getting old to keep play the human right card now.

    • What an inhumane statement! It is never ‘getting old’ to play the human rights card. Compassion and concern (and activism) for human rights is the cornerstone of civilized human life.
