World can benefit from China's expertise in organ donation, Australian expert says

Although China has thoroughly ended its former reliance on the organs of executed prisoners as a source for transplant organs, rumors are still being spread, often to promote a political agenda, according to a foreign expert in the field.

Campbell Fraser, an organ trafficking researcher from Australia, said that such rumors are still being spread by the Falun Gong cult as well as that China harvested organs from cult members, but "there's no evidence of that whatsoever".

"So now this is like a proxy for a political campaign against the Chinese government," he said.

Fraser has followed global trends in organ trafficking for years and interviewed countless medical doctors, experts and Falun Gong practitioners.

"The people of the Falun Gong have no interest in transplantations, or in helping the patients. What they are interested in doing is trying to win global support for their campaign against China," he said.

Fraser called on the international medical and academic communities to disregard such lies, recognize China's reforms and actively include Chinese doctors and experts in the exchange of information and discussion to advance the science and better help patients worldwide.

"The international organ transplantation community is going to suffer if we don't have the benefit of Chinese expertise," he said.
