Organ Trafficking: An International Crime Infrequently Punished

The Kidney World Order
Organ trafficking, an international crime, is estimated to generate between $600 million and $1.2 billion in profits per year. Der Spiegel

Reality

Unfortunately, the glossy scenario described above may be largely mythical but the practice of illegal harvesting of organs most definitely is not. According to a report produced by the United Nations, “Trafficking in organs is a crime that occurs in three broad categories.” Organs which are commonly traded are kidneys and the liver. In the first category of criminal organ trade, traffickers force or deceive victims into giving up an organ. In the second category, victims formally or informally agree to sell an organ and are cheated because they are not paid for the organ or are paid less than the promised price. And in the third category, vulnerable people, including as migrants workers, the homeless, or the illiterate, are treated for an ailment which may not even exist and then their organs are removed without their knowledge.

“Trafficking in organ trade is an organized crime, involving a host of offenders,” states the United Nations report; those involved include recruiters who identify vulnerable persons, transporters, hospital/clinic staff, medical professionals, and middlemen and contractors.

In 2012, The Guardian reported that “the illegal trade in kidneys has risen to such a level that an estimated 10,000 black market operations involving purchased human organs now take place annually, or more than one an hour, World Health Organization experts have revealed.” Since the 2008 economic downturn, in fact, the incidence of organ trafficking has reputedly increased.

Price Paid

Not only are organs obtained from people who have died but also from those who are clinically brain dead but whose body functions are maintained artificially. In fact, living organ donation is becoming more frequent. This practice, though, has been discouraged both for safety reasons and to protect live donors from exploitation. Kidney donation by well-selected living donors can carry negligible risks, so long as rigorous selection procedures, careful surgery, and follow up of the donor and recipient are assured. In all cases, doctors match donors to recipients to reduce the risk of transplant rejection.

In 2010, of the 106,879 known organ transplant operations, those performed with illegally harvested organs may be as high as 10 percent. “The WHO estimation is that currently organ transplantation covers only 10 percent of the global need – it’s a high estimation,” said Dr. Luc Noel of the World Health Organization (WHO). “Unscrupulous individuals and organizations are profiteering from this situation. The stakes are so big, the profit that can be made so huge, that the temptation is out there.”

A report by Global Financial Integrity estimates that illegal organ trade generates between $600 million and $1.2 billion in profits per year with a span across many countries. Donor countries include impoverished nations in South America, Africa, Asia, and Eastern Europe. Recipient countries include the U.S., Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom, Israel, and Japan. “Wealthy patients are paying up to £128,500 (roughly $191,028 today) for a kidney to gangs, often in China, India and Pakistan, who harvest the organs from desperate people for as little as £3,200 (roughly $4,756 today),” reports the Daily Mail.

International Conspiracy

A black market has developed in many poorer countries allowing and enabling those who are wealthy enough to buy organs and so exploit those who are desperate enough to sell them. It is also the case that people will travel to other countries to buy organs they can’t find at home. Globalism combined with supply and demand economics means that developed countries, which demand more organs than can be domestically supplied, seek out donors in developing nations to provide organs and meet their demands, often illegally.

A 1984 U.S. law, the National Organ Transplant Act of 1984 (NOTA), bans the sale of human organs. Yet the first person ever convicted of organ trafficking in the U.S. only occurred in 2011, as reported in Bloomberg News. At that time, Levy Izhak Rosenbaum pleaded guilty to three counts of organ trafficking and one count of conspiracy in a federal court in New Jersey. Three people in New Jersey paid him a total $410,000 to arrange the sale of kidneys from healthy donors, he told the court, while an undercover FBI agent paid him $10,000.

Significantly, the U.S. did not charge or identify any of the people who bought kidneys through Rosenbaum.

WE WERE AWESOME WHEN WE WERE KIDS.WHAT HAPPENED?

  
(What do you mean, were?  We are awesome!)
No matter what our kids and the new generation think about us,
WE WERE AWESOME !!!
OUR Lives are LIVING PROOF !!!
To Those of Us Born
1925 – 1970:
At the end of this email is a quote of the month by Jay Leno. If you don’t read anything else, please
read what he said.
Very well stated, Mr. Leno.
~~~~~~~~~
TO ALL THE KIDS WHO SURVIVED THE
1930s, ’40s, ’50s, ’60s and ’70s!!
First, we survived being born to mothers who may have smoked and/or drank
while they were pregnant.
They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can, and didn’t get tested for diabetes.
Then, after that trauma, we were put to sleep on our tummies in baby cribs covered
with bright colored
lead-based paints.
We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, locks on doors or cabinets,
and, when we rode our bikes,
we had baseball caps,
not helmets, on our heads.
As infants and children, we would ride in cars with no car seats, no booster seats, no seat belts, no air bags, bald tires and sometimes no brakes..
Riding in the back of a pick- up truck on a warm day was always a special treat.
We drank water from the garden hose and not from a bottle.
We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle, and no one actually died from this.
We ate cupcakes, white bread, real butter, and bacon. We drank Kool-Aid made with real white sugar. And we weren’t overweight.WHY?
Because we were always outside playing…that’s why!
We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the streetlights came on.
No one was able to reach us all day.
–And, we were OKAY.
We would spend hours building
our go-carts out of scraps
and then ride them down the hill,only to find out we forgot the brakes.. After running into the bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem..
We did not have Play Stations, Nintendos and X-boxes. There were
no video games, no 150 channels on cable,no video movies or DVDs,no
surround-sound or CDs,
no cell phones,  no personal computers,
no Internet and no chat rooms.
WE HAD FRIENDS
and we went outside and found them!
We fell out of trees, got cut,
broke bones and teeth,
and there were no lawsuits
from those accidents.
We would get spankings with wooden spoons, switches,
ping-pong paddles, or just a bare hand, and no one would call child services to report abuse.
We ate worms, and mud pies
made from dirt, and
the worms did not live in us forever.
We were given BB guns for our 10th birthdays, made up games with sticks and tennis balls, and-although we were told it would happen- we did not put out very many eyes.
We rode bikes or walked to a friend’s house and knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just walked in and talked to them.
Little League had tryouts
and not everyone made the team.
Those who didn’t had to learn
to deal with disappointment.
Imagine that!!
The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of. They actually sided with the law!
These generations have produced some of the best
risk-takers,problem solvers, and inventors ever.
The past 50 to 85 years have seen an explosion of innovation and new ideas..
We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned how to deal with it all.
If YOU are one of those born
between 1925-1970, CONGRATULATIONS!
You might want to share this with others who have had the luck to grow up as kids before the lawyers and the government regulated so much of our lives for our own good.
While you are at it, forward it to your kids, so they will know how brave and lucky their parents were.
Kind of makes you want to run through the house with scissors, doesn’t it ?

The quote of the month by
Jay Leno:
“With hurricanes, tornadoes, fires out of control, mud slides, flooding, severe thunderstorms tearing up the country from one end to another, and with the threat of bird flu and terrorist attacks, are we sure this is a good time to take God out of the Pledge of Allegiance?”
For those that prefer to think that God is not watching over us…go ahead and delete this.
For the rest of us…..pass this on.
