Children Abducted for internal organs

Philippines

Hello lotters, I couldn't believe it when my mom's friend assumed when we watched these news about children being abducted. because i read a followed news about a child abducted back in march which is found Dead by now. Not to mention, the problem is that another child had been kidnapped by a lot of people for some reason. the sad part is that if the child is not a son'daughter of a politician or a celebrity then it would never last in terms of searching for their location whereabouts. I remember one time about some poor selling their own livers or other internal organs for money

This is a new low how awful.This is like a horror film.How on earth can people do this to kids or adults come to that.I have heard of people selling a kidney but this is ridiculous.I suppose in some parts of the world there are street children and who will miss them.Keep your kids safe for goodness sake.

That's really something that we should be afraid of, however, there's something fishy about it. When a doctor does a transplant (liver, kidneys, etc.) there are proper precautions done or SOPs so that the organ would be safely removed or collected. Does this mean that the perpetrators are doctors? Further, how does one sell organs of abducted children when there are strict regulations on how to preserve those and testing before collection in the first place? Yes, a lot of patients need it, but even those coming from relatives wouldn't be a match all the time - how much more from someone you don't really know? But I do hope that we could protect our kids from these crimes. I do hope that politicians stop talking and start acting. It's campaign time again and they're all smiles, but when they're in the position, they will never smile nor give you their attention. Whew!

i have heard about that news too. at first, i thought it was not true but i've seen a pic online about a poor little boy whose stomach was ripped opened exposing all the internal organs. i hope people who have done and commit this kind of crime would be punished and arrested. this is truly a horrible crime to happen especially to innocent children. how many children would fall victims to this. police authority should take this matter seriously because this is a very sad and violent crime to happen in our society.

I have not heard about this story. This is horrible for the parents of today. I can't imagine raising a child in this day and age. It is so scary for our kids. My daughter has two little girls and she is so terrified of something happening to them that she homeschools them. She can't think of letting them go to school and God forbid something happens to them. When they go outside to play she is with them. She would never think to let them play while she is inside. If she has to run inside for something she takes them with her, because she knows it only takes a second for someone to take a child. I remember as a child we were always outside playing and no one was watching us. To know that there are people out there kidnapping our kids for organ parts is so upsetting that I can cry. I keep saying it; but what is this world coming too! I think its coming to the end because there are just to many horrible things happening all over the world.

The news on TV regarding those lost kids is indeed alarming. It used to be that the only hazards faced by children playing on the streets are vehicles but it seems that something more serious is going on. I pity those mothers crying on TV begging for assistance to whomsoever has seen the lost kids only to receive text messages asking for loads. If the children come from well to do families, it is clearly understood that the kidnappers need money in the form of ransom but what about these recent cases wherein the families belong to a lower economic level? Are they going to sell the kids or simply a body part?

that news is really alarming specially for us parents.. no one deserves to die just for the sake of getting the internal organs and sell it.. specially those innocent kids.. we should be always alert in our environment because now a days no one is safe.. criminals now do everything to have some money... i hope those criminals will be caught and justice will be served.. though i know being prison is not enough for them because of what they did with the poor child of children...

This kidnapping kids to sell their organs issue is very old already. Many kids have kidnapped and yet no one of the kidnappers is now in jail. I have watched this kind of issue two years ago in a local news show. They investigated the kidnapping of children to sell their organs but in the end of the show it turned to be a hoax. I think their is a syndicate behind this kidnapping and they are forcing the kids they kidnap to beg or something like that in the streets.

I have heard this news since 2011. When one of my instructor told us that a child was kidnapped. It is really such a heartbreaking news. As a parent, I don't want my child to be abducted. I think I'm gonna die if this will happen. I also heard a story that a boy was abducted and after how many days, his corpse was returned and there was a money inside his body. This is so horrible.

I think it is so sad. Children kidnapped for their organ, I think the performer of kidnap will sell the organ for money. This case hurt my love to children. I think it is worse than some poor sell their own organ for money, because they realize with their action.

I have seen news on tv that there are missing children lately and it is scary, as a parent, this is the worst nightmare to happen..so i even told my nanny not to let my kids out of the house and better stay inside the room when they are playing.
