鑒於世界醫學會（World Medical Association），移植醫學會（The Transplantation Society），世界衛生組織（WHO）與伊斯坦堡宣言等所闡述的倫理準則，我們認為在中國器官移植持續失控與濫用情況下，任何中國之外的移植專家若參與杭州的中國器官移植大會，都是不道德的，除非與會者是為了明確表達反對強摘器官的目的而參加。我們建議所有的醫學組織分別給其成員發佈以上建議。
Obligations of the Medical Profession in Light of the Chinese Transplant Congress 2014
On October 29-31, 2014, the Chinese Transplant Congress will be held in Hangzhou. The congress in the discipline of transplant medicine stands in fundamental contrast to the medical profession and mission. China has violated ethical standards for more than 15 years by using forced organ harvesting from executed prisoners、prisoners of conscience and Falun Gong practitioners as a routine method to procure organs for transplantation.
According to our investigation, Falun Gong practitioners, who have been persecuted by Chinese government, are the major victims of forced live organ harvesting. Chinese government systemically kidnapped Falun Gong practitioners in labor camps and prisons, who did not give up their faith, and have been forcefully harvesting their organs for profit even when they were still alive.
After the false optimism subsequent to the congress held last year, consolidated in the terms referred to as the Hangzhou Resolution, realization and a verifiable progress towards cessation of organ procurement from prisoners in China has been a bitter disappointment to the medical community. Despite the efforts of various medical organizations, China has failed to provide evidence to the international community of a genuine will to change the practice. This is disheartening for us as doctors who campaign for such practice to stop, but above all it is a tragedy for the countless lives stolen in the increasing need to supply such organs for unethical transplant practice.
We would like to take this opportunity, on the first anniversary of the now defunct Hangzhou Resolution, to reaffirm that the principles of that accord should remain the basis of our engagement as organizations and societies with Chinese transplant professionals. The international community should encourage no professional engagement, in support of the Chinese Transplant Congress or other aspects of professional activity, until illegal forced organ procurement comes to an immediate halt. In this respect, each medical association and society has an important responsibility to actively champion this issue and be active in trying to persuade China to stop using illegal forced organs.
The struggle to change Chinese transplant practice remains an urgent and imperative task. We as medical professionals have the ethical obligation to bring this universally condemned illegal organ procurement practice to an immediate end and to refrain from supporting current Chinese transplantation activities until cessation of using organs from prisoners has occurred.
In the light of ethical standards as set forth by the World Medical Association, The Transplantation Society, World Health Organization, Declaration of Istanbul Custodian Group and others, we would consider it unethical for any foreign transplant professional to attend this transplant congress in Hangzhou given the rampant and unrepentant transplant abuse in China, unless the person is going with the express and sole purpose of speaking out against it. We suggest to all medical associations to issue a respective advisory to its members.
