On The Market

Monday 6th July / presented by Chris Wheeldon

Forced live organ harvesting in China has changed the way the world's people view the organ transplant industry.

The SBS Dateline documentary "Human Harvest: China's Organ Trafficking" aired last month and caused quite a stir, not only among the general public in Australia, but also around the world via the internet.

A recent Red Cross report found only 37 people across China were registered organ donors - and harvesting organs from executed prisoners did not come close to accounting for the more than 10,000 transplant procedures performed every year.

International Human Rights Lawyer David Matas was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2010 in recognition of his work relating to the investigation of organ harvesting crimes against Falun Gong practitioners in China. Chris started by asking how big of a problem is the trafficking of human organs throughout China.
