Did you know that in China it only takes 2-4 weeks to receive an organ transplant, while in the developed world the wait-list is years. The kill on demand system has been prolific for over 2 decades, resulting in hundreds of thousands of deaths.

Forced organ harvesting is an unethical and illegal yet highly profitable practice where vital organs are removed from non-consenting, healthy people and sold to patients in need of transplantation. For over two decades, the Chinese Communist Party has mobilized the entire state apparatus to monetize the bodies of those deemed undesirable and turn medical professionals into executioners. The primary victims of forced organ harvesting are Falun Gong prisoners of conscience, killed on demand for their organs.
Co-hosts of the event:
* CAP Freedom of Conscience
* Taiwan Association for International Care of Organ Transplants
* Korea Association for Ethical Organ Transplants
* Transplant Tourism Research Association


It’s hard to believe that doctors would kill for profit. It’s even harder to believe that major media are not investigating. Watch this award-winning insight into why the world is ignoring China's mass-market sale of human organs.

IT’S HAPPENED BEFORE: Governments killing their own citizens for their political or spiritual beliefs. But it’s never happened like this.

It’s happened so often that the world doesn’t always pay attention. But is economic influence the reason that this time it’s going largely unreported? It’s hard to believe that doctors would carve up innocent people so their organs could be sold. It’s even harder to believe that major media are not investigating. Yet it’s still happening today and leaving a rising volume of victims in its wake.

Hard To Believe is a documentary that examines the issue of forced live organ harvesting from Chinese prisoners of conscience, and the response—or lack of it—around the world. Produced by Swoop Films, two-time Emmy Award-winning director/producer, Ken Stone, Irene Silber, Kay Rubacek and Swoop Films.
