Transplant Tourism

It was over two years ago when I compared embryonic stem cell research to harvesting organs from prison inmates.

Now, an article from Science Daily, with evidence that it is happening...
"The study authors estimate that more than 400 patients received transplants abroad with 75% of those taking place between 2004 and 2006.Of those transplant tourists, 40% reside in New York and California, and the majority these patients traveled to the PRC, where organs from executed prisoners have been used in transplantations."
