U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama Receives Letter Denouncing CCP Live Organ Harvesting
Recently, news of the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP)
live organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners has been widely reported.
It has even become a part of the U.S. presidential campaign.
Both Obama and Romney have received letters
or information cards asking them to help stop these atrocities.
First Lady Michelle Obama also received a similar letter
during one of the presidential campaign activities recently.
On October 9, First Lady Michelle Obama was
campaigning for her husband on a farm in Virginia.
The atmosphere was very warm.
Falun Gong practitioner Ma Chunmei was there
and had the opportunity to shake hands with Michelle.
Ma Chunmei also had a short conversation with the First Lady.
Angela Lee, another Falun Gong practitioner, helped
translate the conversation between the two.
Ma Chunmei: “When I shook hands
with First Lady, she was very happy.
I started talking to her, and Angela helped translate.
I said that I appreciate the help from you, President Obama
and the U.S. government for rescuing us from China.
Then the First Lady’s assistant took the letter I handed to her.
The First Lady told her assistant to open the letter to make
it more convenient for her to read the letter later, I think.
They opened the letter and then left.”
Ma Chunmei came from North-Eastern China.
Ma was brutally tortured in prison.
Without her permission, the prison put Ma Chunmei on a drip.
They performed blood tests, physical
examinations, and even marrow tests.
However, the prison never disclosed the examination
results. Later on, Ma was rescued to America.
Ma Chunmei said she handed two letters to the First Lady.
One letter was written by herself.
She hopes that the U.S. government can help
rescue her sister, Ma Chunling, in Dalian.
Ma Chunling was detained illegally in China.
Within less than one month, the prison has already
performed two physical exams and blood tests on her sister.
The second letter was a Congressional
letter co-signed by 106 members.
This letter demands the U.S. Department of State to release
evidence regarding live organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners, and take measures to stop these criminal acts.
Falun Gong practitioner Angela Lee
also handed a letter to First Lady.
This letter says that Live Organ Harvesting is even
crueler than the Nazi atrocities during War II.
She hopes that U.S. government can take
immediate action to stop the CCP’s atrocities.
Earlier, a number of Falun Gong practitioners handed
letters and information cards to Obama, Romney and Ryan.
They demanded that the CCP’s live organ
harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners must stop.
Ma Chunmei: “We also hope that
we can get help from the First Lady.
She seems very kind to ordinary people.
Therefore, we came to meet her.
I hope that she can pay more attention
to this live organ harvesting crime.
It is a matter that does not only effect Chinese people.
If, today, the CCP does this to Chinese people,
and Falun Gong practitioners, tomorrow it will commit this crime to people all over the world.”
Independent Commentator Li Shanjian suggests that
the U.S. President and officials are elected by the people.
Therefore, they have the responsibility
to listen to the voice from people.
With more letters handed to them, it will help
them learn about the truth more thoroughly.
This is so that they can stop the CCP’s atrocities.
Li Shanjian: “It’s a great shame that live organ harvesting
has happened in the history of human beings.
If the pressure and voice from America can help
improve human rights in China,
and can help Chinese people live more happily,
it’s all that Chinese people could wish for.
This is not an issue specific to any one country.
It’s actually an issue of the choice between good or evil.
It’s a choice everybody has to face and make a decision on.”
Ma Chunmei also mentions about Falun Gong practitioner
Meng Yanxi, who was detained in the same cell with her.
On one occasion, Meng Yanxi lost consciousness due
to brutal tortures, and then Meng was taken out of the cell and she never came back.
After Ma Chunmei got out of the prison, she was
looking for Meng Yanxi locally, and on the internet.
However, Ma Chunmen hasn’t found
any clues to where Meng Yanxi is.
Ma Chunmei states that she has the feeling that
Meng Yanxi might have left this world already.
