Message from the Editor, Ann F. Corson, M.D.

DAFOH newsletter readers are cordially invited to attend the upcoming World Summit on Combating and Preventing Forced Organ Harvesting being presented digitally by five international non-governmental organizations concerned with ethics and human rights.

The importance of combating the live forced organ harvesting of innocent prisoners of conscience in China cannot be underestimated. The world’s attention must be focused on the decades of illegal, unethical transplant practices and human rights abuses being perpetrated by the Chinese regime.

Global societies have become increasingly totalitarian since lockdowns were imposed in lockstep by countries around the world in early 2020. The world’s people have witnessed dramatic loss of personal liberties and unprecedented censorship with suppression of rational and ethical debate. Democratic countries around the world have lost freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom to congregate, freedom to travel, freedom to dissent, and freedom of bodily integrity.

Recent events have demonstrated to the world’s people how rapidly the behavior and ethics of global governments can change. If the government of China has been able to incarcerate its own innocent citizens to monetize their organs with impunity for decades, how soon might the live forced organ harvesting on demand of innocent citizens become standard transplant practice in your country or mine?

Awaken to the threat this atrocity poses to us all. Attend the World Summit on Combating and Preventing Forced Organ Harvesting and act to protect the liberty, dignity, and freedom of humanity.
