There is a heavy price to pay when you get a transplant in another country. In China for example, there are very few donors, so organs come from executed death row prisoners, and political prisoners who are killed for their organs.
THE TRUE COST TO PATIENTS
More than your health. Besides costing upwards of $US 100k, a recent study found that buying organs overseas is dangerous because of improper conditions and poor medical standards, resulting in infection or worse.
THE TRUE COST TO THE “DONOR”
Investigations have found that Chinese dissidents (like the woman above) are killed to fuel China’s state-funded transplant industry. Such exploitation is why the World Health Organization and surgeons across the globe are firmly opposed to transplant commercialism.
YOUR HELP IS NEEDED
You can help protect the welfare of recipients and donors alike by spreading awareness about China’s lethal transplant system, and supporting a ban on transplant tourism around the world.
