The Falun Gong Protection Act

In its persecution of Falun Gong, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has implemented a state-organized practice of forced organ harvesting – the removal of organs for transplant purposes from living people. The Falun Gong Protection Act is a response to this evil and aims to penalize perpetrators who are involved in this crime against humanity.

Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa, is a spiritual practice that millions around the world have made a part of their lives. It is a peaceful Buddhist Qigong practice that follows the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance.

After its introduction to the public in China in 1992, it quickly became very popular, reaching approximately 100 million adherents by early 1999. Fearing a threat to his own popularity, the former leader of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) began a baseless and vicious repression of Falun Gong in July 1999. The persecution has continued for over two decades and has been called a slow moving “cold” genocide.

"Forced organ harvesting, removal of organs from a donor without obtaining prior free and voluntary informed consent, is not only a crime against humanity, but a serious threat to medical science in general."

The Chinese government has been involved in the inhuman act of harvesting organs of political prisoners, mainly Falun Gong practitioners, in order to provide organs for transplant to recipients.

This dreadful act first came to light in 2016 when a woman claimed that approximately 4,000 Falun Gong practitioners were killed for their organs in the hospital where she worked. Her husband, a surgeon, had disclosed to her that he had removed corneas from the living bodies of 2,000 Falun Gong practitioners. This was followed by several first hand reports.

In July 2006, former Secretary of State for Asia Pacific David Kilgour and human rights lawyer David Matas published their report of their investigation into this issue. Their 140-page report titled Bloody Harvest concluded that the allegations are true.

The China Tribunal is an independent tribunal to investigate the evidence of forced organ harvesting in China. In June 2019, China Tribunal delivered its final judgement, saying that "forced organ harvesting has been committed for year throughout China on a significant scale," and "Falun Gong practitioners have been one, and probably the main, source of organ supply."

Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting (DAFOH) is an international non-profit NGO promoting medical ethics and working to end forced organ harvesting.
