-- LONDON -- Chinese medical officials agreed Friday not to transplant organs from prisoners or other individuals in custody, except into members of their immediate families. The agreement was reached at a meeting of the World Medical Association in Copenhagen.Well... as long as they promise... we all know China is as good as its word.
China has previously acknowledged that kidneys, livers, corneas and other organs are routinely removed from prisoners sentenced to death row.Who says these guys don't understand capitalism?
The underground organ trade in China has been a notorious supplier of organs to foreigners desperately in need of transplants, who make up as much as 40 percent of the market.
Brokers regularly arrange transplants in weeks rather than the months or years it generally takes in the West.
