Lured by criminal networks, children are abducted and have their organs harvested

The already rampant criminal network in Mexico and South America, in addition to dealing drugs, has taken to abducting children and adults in order to murder then and harvest their vital organs. The lucrative, underground business of livers, lungs and eyes to the highest bidder fuels this grisly economy.

Victims targeted by organ harvesters usually range in age from seven to 10 years while younger children are often kidnapped for adoption.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - It's estimated that approximately 45,000 Mexican children and young people have been abducted. While many of these young people are used for sexual exploitation, organ harvesting remains an option for many criminals. 

Chiefly active in Mexico City and the surrounding State of Mexico, as well as Veracruz, Tijuana, Monterrey, Guadalajara, and in areas bordering the United States, Guatemala, and Belize, these criminal gangs are responding to an unmet demand for usable human tissue.

Young people, especially from Central America, are especially susceptible to being used for this unsavory purpose. Corrupt physicians in the United States are often used in order to remove organs such as kidneys and livers. A recent report cited unnamed French and U.S. authorities.

The Mexican Foundation for the Research on Missing and Abducted children have created a free campaign on the phenomenon of child abduction in the schools in Mexico City, and the states of Mexico, Veracruz and Puebla. According to UNICEF, 1.2 million children go missing worldwide each year.

There have been isolated cases where it has been determined that organs, especially hearts and livers, have been extracted from children for the purposes of esoteric religious rituals linked to the cult of the so-called "Santa Muerte," or Saint Death or Holy Death.


Dr. Fernando Lopez-Neblina, a surgeon at a hospital in the border town of Mexicali, says that Mexico's attorney general has never uncovered a single case of forced organ harvesting. López-Neblina notes that the procedure of organ transplantation is highly complex and requires a specialized team of physicians.

Young people, especially from Central America, are especially susceptible to being used for this unsavory purpose.


"There have been indeed cases of kidnapping of children and adults where their organs have been extracted, but never for a transplant. These organs are removed just anywhere as if they were animals and are used for witchcraft. The Attorney General's office has discovered the mutilated corpses of children in common graves, and I have seen corpses whose hearts, liver and other organs have been ripped out; these could never have been used for illegal trafficking," said Dr. López-Neblina.
