A van is reportedly going around provinces taking little kids' internal organs. As usual there are idiots who would believe a report they got from a forwarded text message. And there are even bigger idiots who pass off these rumors as fact.

The thing to ask is: what are they going to use the organs for? People requiring transplants are usually adults. And even then there are Filipinos more than willing to sell their kidneys for a few hundred thousand. Why would anyone need to drive around in a van risking kidnapping and murder charges when they can acquire what they need easily?

Truth isn't a consensus (no matter how much Philip K. Dick you read). Just because a lot of people claim it's true doesn't make it so. Always look for evidence.
