China still harvests organs from prisoners – and the world does little to stop it

A number of countries ban travel to China for transplant surgery. Strangely, Canada and the United States are not among them. They should be. No deal with a murderous regime that regularly kills its citizens to make money is worth the paper on which it is written. Any deal with China, on any matter, must include an insistence that this barbaric practice stop immediately, coupled with a mechanism whereby such stoppage is verifiable.

We, who rush to buy Chinese products, should ask ourselves if we are thereby supporting murder, even though that is surely not our intention. Maybe we can send a life-saving message by refusing to buy Made in China products if we can help it. Imagine saving lives merely through a change in buying habit. It sends a loud message, and is a profound manifestation of caring.
