David Matas on Exposing China’s Illicit Organ Trade and the West’s Naïvete | TEASER

“We've been lying to ourselves so long, we don't know the truth when we see it,” says international human rights lawyer David Matas. For nearly two decades now, he has been one of the leading researchers examining the extensive evidence of forced organ harvesting in China. “The medical profession here in the US needs to start looking at the facts and not simply accept Chinese government statements about how good they are at face value,” Matas says. Several countries, including Canada, Israel, and Spain, have passed extraterritorial legislation that allows for the prosecution of perpetrators of forced organ harvesting, including brokers and advertisers that facilitate the practice. But the U.S. has not. “Obviously, if you kill somebody in the US or the organs, you're going to be prosecuted, it should be the same if you leave the country and then come back,” Matas says.
