A group of organizations, ask the members of the US congress to co-sponsor Stop Forced Organ Harvesting Act of 2021

Shabtabnews – In a letter a group of organizations, ask the members of the US congress to co-sponsor the Stop Forced Organ Harvesting Act .

Forced organ harvesting and organ trafficking are interlinked crimes where organs are taken from victims through coercion or without informed consent and sold illegally. This means that patients undergoing organ transplants abroad are at-risk of receiving trafficked organs.

In many countries, impoverished people are targeted and coerced to sell an organ from which the traffickers make a significant profit. The ‘donor’ is left without medical care and with significant health risks.
