WINCHESTER — A resolution condemning forced organ harvesting from prisoners of conscience in China was unanimously adopted by the Frederick County Board of Supervisors on Wednesday night.
The board adopted the resolution after receiving a petition with about 220 signatures from dozens of county residents as well as residents of Fairfax County with ties to refugees from China.
“The practice of organ harvesting in China has received almost no coverage in U.S. media,” Fairfax County resident Alex Wang told the supervisors. “As a result, we find that many residents here in Frederick County have never heard of this issue.”
