The summary of Stop Forced Organ Harvesting Act of 2023 (HR 1154) reads “This bill imposes sanctions on persons (individuals and entities) involved in forced organ trafficking and authorizes the Department of State to revoke the passports of individuals convicted of certain crimes related to organ trafficking. Specifically, the President must report to Congress a list of persons that facilitate (1) forced organ harvesting, or (2) trafficking in persons for organ harvesting. For each person on the list, the President must impose property- and visa-blocking sanctions.”
“Furthermore, the State Department may deny or revoke the passport of an individual who has been convicted of a federal crime of knowingly transferring any human organ for valuable consideration for use in human transplantation, if the individual (1) is subject to imprisonment or supervised release resulting from that conviction, and (2) used a passport or crossed an international border when committing that crime,” which sounds about as unobjectionable as a bill can get these days.
The bill passed the House on Monday by a vote of 412 to 2. The two nays were Kentucky MAGA Congressman Thomas Massie and white nationalist barbarian Marjorie Taylor
