The atrocities of forced organ harvesting from prisoners of conscience, in particular from Falun Gong practitioners, has been investigated since 2006. The evidence is compelling and has been presented to parliamentary bodies. In response to the evidence parliaments and governments have passed resolutions and statements, condemning the abusive practice in China.
China has harvested organs from executed prisoners for decades, but denied it until 2005, when it admitted first time that the majority of organs were harvested from prisoners after execution.
Up to date China has also denied the forced organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners. Parliamentarian resolutions are important and keep the attention on the undisclosed atrocities. Every resolution adds awareness to this topic and gives a voice to the voiceless.
