(Clearwisdom.net) Several days ago, police officers from the Tangyuan County Police Department arrested Ms. Li Xiuqin, a practitioner from Tangyuan County, Heilongjiang Province and took her to a detention center. We have learned that Ms. Li's life is now in danger. Police officers claimed that they had taken her to the emergency room twice, but they are not allowing family visits.

Ms. Li Xiuqin's husband quit his job so he could find a way to rescue her. He said that his wife became healthy after practicing Falun Gong, but was persecuted just because she shared her experience with others. The following open letter was written by Ms. Li's husband to call for help in rescuing his wife.

My wife Ms. Li Xiuqin, 51, lives in Tangyuan County, Heilongjiang Province. Before she practiced Falun Gong, she had congenital heart disease and other illnesses. She went, without prior warning, into shock from time to time, so her illness was life threatening. When in severe pain due to her illnesses, she often pulled her hair with both hands. Whenever that happened, I was helpless, as her hands were as if frozen. Her clothes were torn and her chest was bloody from scratching. Afterwards, she didn't remember anything. I couldn't leave her alone, as I never knew how she might hurt herself. I often felt helpless and suffered with her.

My wife started practicing Falun Gong in 1996. Since then, she changed gradually. When she lost her temper, she used to say, "Oh, I am losing my temper again. I should change it." Gradually her temper turned for the better and her illnesses disappeared. She seemed like another person. She said, "Falun Dafa helped me understand why I should be a good and kind person." Because of her changes, the environment at home also changed. My child and I truly enjoyed great happiness because of Falun Dafa. Having gained so much from practicing Falun Dafa, my wife wanted to tell people about the practice.

Just because my wife followed the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) persecuted her many times. They detained her, sentenced her to forced labor and extorted money from us. In 2005, my wife was tortured and became emaciated. She went into shock twice at the detention center and her life was in danger. Despite repeated requests, the police bureau officials refused to to anything for her. They claimed that she was all right and took her to a labor camp instead. The guards at the labor camp refused to take her because of her physical condition.

Recently, police officers from the Tangyuan County Police Bureau arrested my wife again and took her to a detention center. My wife's life is in danger again. They claimed that they had taken her to the emergency center twice. They don't want to release her, nor will they allow family visits. They even refused medical parole. They even dared to complain that my wife didn't cooperate. I really don't understand this. As a person who neither violated the law nor committed any crime, why should she cooperate with being in prison?

Because of the persecution, we suffered great financial loss. We were persecuted physically and mentally. Our child's college entrance test was greatly affected. My family is in great financial difficulty. I had to resign from my job because I have to find a way to rescue my innocent wife.

Dear kindhearted people, please lend me a hand in my hour of need. I hope that there is some way you can help rescue my kind wife. Help me return my wife to freedom.
