Without God—and You—Sandra Has No Chance

Oct 2, 2019

Planned Parenthood’s revenge lawsuit against pro-life hero Sandra Merritt opened today in San Francisco with jury selection.

The abortion giant needs a unanimous verdict from a 12-member jury to win its civil suit demanding millions from Sandra. That means, as Liberty Counsel Chief Litigation Counsel Harry Mihet remarked . . .

“We need to find just ONE fair-minded juror in San Francisco who will understand that Sandra broke no law, and who is willing to stand on that principle.”

The law and the facts are on Sandra’s side—but we’re up against abortion giant Planned Parenthood in San Francisco where, without God’s help, she doesn’t stand a chance.

A courageous grandmother, Sandra went undercover to expose Planned Parenthood’s gruesome and cruel trafficking in human body parts. Now the nation’s largest abortion chain is out to crush Sandra’s First Amendment rights and utterly bankrupt her.

And Planned Parenthood is deadly serious. It has dozens of attorneys working around the clock in a furious attempt to punish Sandra and dissuade any future resistance to their grisly interests.

That’s why I ask for your prayers and your financial support.

This is the most expensive case in Liberty Counsel’s history. The trial, with more than 60 witnesses, could go up to eight weeks. That means huge bills for hotel accommodations, airfare, food, court transcripts and more.

The cost for court exhibits alone will soar into the tens of thousands. All told, this trial’s expense will go well into the high six figures.

Please pray and stand with Sandra now with your gift. Humanly speaking, the odds are long . . . but with God all things are possible!

And your support now will make a real difference.

Planned Parenthood’s vicious suit is now more than three years old. Below I give you a quick background on how it all started . . . –Mat

This short account takes you back to 2015 and the undercover investigation that exposed Planned Parenthood’s dirty secret and shook the abortion giant. . . 

A string of stunning undercover videos shocked and angered Americans in 2015 by revealing Planned Parenthood’s gruesome trade in human organs from aborted babies.

David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt led a two-and-a-half-year “sting” operation in which they posed as buyers for BioMax, a fictitious human tissue procurement firm.

That cover story allowed Daleiden and Merritt to burrow deep inside Planned Parenthood, gaining access to senior officials, meeting them at luncheons, inside abortion facilities and at abortion industry gatherings.

The unguarded and explosive remarks of top Planned Parenthood leaders captured on video reveal heartless disregard for unborn children.

+  +  Padding profits by harvesting humans

And they showcase a ready willingness to pad profits by harvesting and selling baby body parts to researchers – possibly in violation of federal law which makes the “sale or purchase of human fetal tissue” punishable by up to 10 years in prison or a fine of up to $500,000.

“We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver,” a Planned Parenthood abortionist told the undercover investigators at a business lunch.

Along with overseeing medical practice at Planned Parenthood’s 700 facilities nationwide, this abortionist also did abortions up to 24 weeks in Los Angeles. She explained, between bites of salad and sips of wine, how she alters her surgical technique to harvest intact organs.

“You’re just kind of cognizant of where you put your graspers, you try to intentionally go above and below the thorax ... I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact,” the abortion doctor says in the video.

The going price for human body parts ranges, she told the buyers, “anywhere from $30 to $100 [per specimen], depending on the facility and what’s involved.”

+  +  Public outrage and disgust

Disturbing revelations like that provoked public outrage and disgust, along with charges that Planned Parenthood was selling human tissue in violation of federal law. The videos shocked Americans and sparked legal action . . .

  • At least two entities in California have been successfully prosecuted, forced to pay almost $8 million in penalties, and shuttered permanently in connection with their unlawful baby parts transactions.
  • Several states and the federal government have moved to defund Planned Parenthood to varying degrees.
  • And Congress conducted its own investigation resulting in the referral of Planned Parenthood to law enforcement agencies for criminal prosecution in connection with its illegal profiteering from aborted baby body parts.

Right now, the U.S. Department of Justice is investigating Planned Parenthood.

+  +  Stand with Sandra today

And now Planned Parenthood is wounded, furious and out for revenge.

Which is why Sandra, the woman whose brave undercover journalism instigated the DOJ criminal probe into Planned Parenthood, faces financial ruin in federal court.

It's incredibly unjust.

That's why I ask for your help now. Your gift is crucial as we defend Sandra against the full might and fury of the nation’s largest abortion business.

Will you consider a gift of 35, 75, 100 or 200 dollars today?

We are just beginning a lengthy and intense trial. Costs will be huge and threaten to drain our legal "war chest."

Please be as generous as you can. This is one of the most significant pro-life legal fights in our nation today. And your generosity is crucial.

Thank you for your friendship and for standing with pro-life champion Sandra Merritt today!
