About the Author

David Matas is an international human rights lawyer based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. He is the co-author, with David Kilgour, of Bloody Harvest: The killing of Falun Gong for their organs, published by Seraphim Editions in 2009. For their efforts in combating Chinese organ transplant abuse, the two Davids were nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2010.

Dr. Torsten Trey is founding member and Executive Director of Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting (DAFOH). After learning about the systematic harvesting of organs from living prisoners of conscience against their will, he decided to shift his focus from patient care to this non-profit organization.

We are appalled by the painful extraction of organs from living prisoners-of-consciousness; there is no freedom in China when high government officials both authorize killing innocent people practicing meditation (Falun Gong is not a religion) and profit from murder. International condemnation is morally mandated.

One difficulty with ascertaining information about Falun Gong persecution in general and the organ harvesting issue in particular is the overwhelming presence of Falun Gong affiliated organizations providing information. Of course these organizations are going to be more reliable than the CCP propaganda attacking them but there's no escaping the fact that a Falun Gong organization's primary goal is going to be the advancement of Falun Gong. So if there is an episode which can be interpreted in different ways, they are almost certainly going to interpret it in the way most favorable to their group. This makes it somewhat difficult to go through the literature on FG abuse today. That their general claims are correct is true beyond a shadow of a doubt--the post-1999 CCP has engaged in one of the most horrific, relentless, unjustifiable and shameful persecutions since the Holocaust. However, evaluating the correct interpretation of individual episodes can be difficult in the absence of a large body of third-party scholarship on the subject.

This book is refreshing different in that none of the contributing authors are practitioners (at least they don't seem to be, no mention is made and only one is Chinese). This helps the reader approach the topic from the outside, as a concerned third-party and not to be instantly dragooned for one side or the other.

Many of the authors are doctors and a lot of attention is given to the medical ramifications (Ahmad), the ways that the medical community can respond to the situation or more general ruminations about how this case affects medical ethics (Singh). Gutmann's article is particularly good at spelling out where the numbers come from (though his command of statistics leaves something to be desired).

This book is a collection of many experts' writing on the issue of forced organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners and other prisoners of conscious in China. This is simply the greatest evil on earth today and must be stopped. I thank the authors for exposing this evil to the world.

This book lines up 12 experts in their fields to give readers an understanding of the practice of organ harvesting from prisoners of conscience and the general prison population in China.

China, due to Confucian belief has only very recently adopted a system of organ donation by consent. From the 1970's when the first transplant operations were performed in China, the only source of replacement organs was from executed prisoners.

An exponential increase in transplant operations started in 2000, concurrent with the persecution of Falun Gong. It is estimated that between 40-60 thousand Falun Gong practitioners may have died to fulfill transplant requirements to Chinese and foreign recipients. Christians, Uighurs and other minorities may also have been killed as a result of the practice.

This barbaric, state sponsored practice brings back memories of the Nazi Holocaust, but is possibly on a larger and more organised scale as China expands into a international market economy!

An interesting and informative read for the general reader and an excellent introduction for those researching this topic!
