    BBC News - China to end organ donations from executed prisoners


    I hope this was done out of a rational cost-benefit analysis, not out of Western pressure. It could be a waste of good organs.

    They always do, since they're usually not conscious by the time the Communist party is done with them.

    true. We should strive to be a model for the world with a liberal, sustainable and scientific society. I wish we didn't have to develop the military, as any buildup of the military is a theft from the poor and hungry, but there are unfriendly forces both domestic and foreign that do not want to see us build a better world.
