The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, a national organization of physicians and surgeons in all specialties, founded in 1943, issues the following statement:
There is overwhelming evidence that by the authority of the Chinese Communist Party, which holds absolute power in China, members of the Chinese Communist Party have arrested Falun Gong practitioners, Uyghurs, Christians and others in China, incarcerated them, done medical testing without consent for the purpose of matching their organs with transplant recipients, and removed their organs for transplantation, killing them in the process of doing so, engaging in “transplant tourism” for money.
Chinese nationals who are physicians and students, coerced or indoctrinated, approved by the Chinese Communist Party to leave the country, have been admitted to US colleges, universities and medical schools and internship/residency programs, where they are taught science, absorb medical knowledge, and learn to perform procedures:
The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons condemns imprisonment for religious practices, dissent, and ethnic background.
The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons condemns any and all forms of forced organ harvesting.
The United States government and American physicians should refuse to condone, enable, facilitate, or participate in forced organ harvesting, as by: Educating or Training personnel from a totalitarian country like communist China, or any other country, in skills that might be used for forced organ harvesting or referring patients to programs that use forced organ harvesting or participating in their care.
