(Washington, DC—June 14, 2021) ChinaAid welcomes the United Nations’ recent report of evidence of an alleged systematic system of forced organ harvesting targeting minorities, including Falun Gong practitioners, Uyghurs, Tibetans, Muslims and Christians, in detention in China. 

While horrific, the human rights experts’ findings are a crucial step in pushing back against the Chinese Communist Party’s campaign against religious minorities. There is substantial, credible, and a growing body of unrefuted evidence that the Communist Party of China has authorized and sanctioned – and continues to carry out—a systematic program of organ harvesting with a horrific and cruel loss of human life.

At the Taiwan International Religious Freedom Forum in May 2019, ChinaAid led over 70 influential activists, politicians, and religious leaders from around the world in signing the #NoMore Organ Harvesting Declaration. It stated, “On grounds of conscience and basic humanity, I solemnly pledge that I will not receive or accept, directly or indirectly, any organ transplant from China.” 

However, concerning evidence continues to be exposed about the barbaric practice of forced organ harvesting of religious prisoners in China and yet the world remains idle. The international community must outright condemn the Chinese Communist Party’s crimes against humanity and work together to end the illegal organ trade system. 

We urge the United Nations to move beyond dialogue with China and into a full scale investigation to include unrestricted visits by the Special Rapporteur on trafficking in persons, especially women and children, the Special Rapporteur on freedom of religion or belief, and the Special Rapporteur on torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.
