Nadine Maenza, in her capacity as a Commissioner for the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom said, "For decades, we have known that Chinese authorities had facilitated organ harvesting from Falun Gong prisoners of conscience. Indeed, there have been reports that patients requested Falun Gong practitioners because the group’s meditation practices supposedly made their organs healthier. This new report by Matthew Robinson adds another frightening new religious freedom dimension to this issue with the claim that some Uighur Muslims have also been subjected to forced organ harvesting." She continued, "USCIRF urges the U.S. government to undertake a complete and thorough investigation into these allegations. There is no place in the 21st century for forced organ harvesting."
