Baby Body Parts Companies Must Cease Operations

Dec 11, 2017

On Friday, two sister companies, DV Biologics and DaVinci Biosciences, agreed to settle a lawsuit brought against them by the Orange County prosecutor for illegally selling baby body parts supplied by Planned Parenthood to pharmaceutical companies and schools across America and at least 10 countries for millions of dollars in profit. The companies avoided a court ruling by settling out of court. The companies, whose owners who are part of an Ecuadoran family convicted of bank fraud amounting to more than $600 million dollars, were forced to pay $7.785 million, turn over more than $10,000 in laboratory equipment and storage containers, and pay $195,000 in civil penalties. Both companies must cease doing business in California. These companies created catalogues of baby body parts and even ran “specials” to sell to pharmaceutical companies and universities. 

For Sandra Merritt’s undercover work, Planned Parenthood attempted to intimidate Liberty Counsel’s client with a retaliatory $16 million suit, and the California Attorney General Xavier Becerra filed a 15-count criminal complaint that is unprecedented in the history of the state. Liberty Counsel is defending Merritt in both cases.
