Reality TV Show Captures Australians' Response to “Human Harvest” Documentary
(Minghui.org) The most recent episode of popular Australian Reality TV Series “Gogglebox Australia” showed people's reaction to SBS TV station's airing of the documentary “Human Harvest,” which exposes the Chinese regime's state-sanctioned human organ harvesting and trafficking. The film, which includes testimonials from medical doctors, a Chinese policeman and a transplant patient, received a prestigious Peabody Award for documentary earlier this year.
The Chinese Communist Party Commercialized Killing for Organs
Gogglebox Australia showed the responses and discussions that took place in the Kidd household after they watched the documentary.
Lee, the father of the family, started the conversation, “Ten thousand transplants and thirty-seven [donors] registered; something is going on.”
The youngest of the family, Roger said that he had heard of the live organ harvesting industry, but he thought it was a rumor until now.
Janet, the mother, added that [killing people for their organs] is no different than the Holocaust.
Commenting on the listed price of human organs from living Falun Gong practitioners, Wayne agreed that it is exactly the same [as the Holocaust], and they [the Communist Regime] have commercialized it.
After learning from the police witness that Falun Gong practitioners had their organs harvested without anesthetic, a group of friends were horrified.
Tom: “Could you image the pain when they are chopping them [the organs] out?”
Millie: “They are serial murderers.”
“You Can't Kill People's Faith by Murdering Them”
Janet Kidd said, “I think people should learn from World War II that you can't kill people's faith by murdering them.”
When she learned that the majority of the organ harvesting victims are Falun Gong practitioners, she added, “The communist party wants to continue the system of lies, and Falun Gong stands for truth.”
Roger agreed, “It [Falun Gong's core belief] is against the Party life, so it is a threat for them.”
