The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has acknowledged using executed prisoners as a source of organs to supply China’s medical transplant centers until 2015 when it introduced a voluntary donor registry. But mounting evidence indicates that China continues to use prisoners—specifically prisoners of conscience—for forced organ harvesting. Moreover, the U.S. government takes Beijing’s denials of such reports at face value, while the American transplant sector collaborates freely with China in trainings, educational exchanges, research, publications, conferences, and other partnerships.

Hudson Senior Fellow Nina Shea will discuss this issue with Hudson Senior Fellow Nury Turkel and Dr. Jessica Russo. Both Turkel and Russo are noted experts in forced organ harvesting and the CCP’s other egregious human rights abuses, including against practitioners of the spiritual meditation group Falun Gong and the Uyghur Muslim population in Xinjiang.
