History on View in Strasbourg: MEPs Speak for Resolution Condemning Organ Harvesting in China (+Video)
The European Parliament meeting in Strasbourg, France on Dec. 12 passed a resolution that condemns the practice of forced organ harvesting in China.

The resolution received broad-based support from five different political groups. Parliament members gave a variety of reasons for their votes, but came back to a few themes: the moral necessity of opposing the practice of forced organ harvesting; support for basic human rights; the good of the Chinese people; and the need for Europeans not to be complicit in these crimes.
