Taking Livers from Living Babies—in America

Jul 1, 2019

Thank you for the outpouring of support to close June strong! We're so grateful. And while we came up short in reaching the 20,000 dollars above budget we need, I am humbled and incredibly grateful to all who gave. Your generosity is crucial and makes a huge difference.

And if you did not participate--or you would like to donate again—read about a shocking reason to do so —Mat.

A federally-funded researcher has introduced a heinous method to harvest livers from living babies.

Researcher Jorg C. Gerlach developed "a grotesque technique to harvest fresh, pristine livers from intact babies delivered alive in late-term abortions," reports Center for Medical Progress founder David Daleiden.

In Gerlach's technique, labor is induced and the infant is delivered alive, after which the baby is placed in a sterile bag. Then the child, his or her heart still beating, is immediately transported to what Gerlach, in his published research, termed a "facility for human cell processing."

There, the baby is weighed, washed, and placed on a sterile surgical tray.

"Then they cut their livers out," writes Daleiden.

Gerlach has received $2 million from the National Institutes for Health for his fetal liver experiments. Thank God that President Trump put a stop in June to federal funding for experiments using body parts taken from aborted babies.

Yet the horror of harvesting human organs is a significant profit center for Planned Parenthood. Daleiden and our client, Sandra Merritt, exposed on video the abortion giant’s gruesome commerce in baby body parts.

Now Planned Parenthood, with help from its hired gun, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, is retaliating.

The $1.7 billion abortion chain sued Sandra for $16 million. And its ally, AG Becerra, is prosecuting Sandra on 15 felony criminal counts for her undercover investigation.

No other journalist in California has ever faced criminal charges for using tried and true methods of undercover journalism. Until now. If convicted, Sandra will face huge fines and years in prison!

Sandra's true "crime," of course, was to expose Planned Parenthood. She helped capture on video comments like this from Dr. Debra Nucatola, a Planned Parenthood senior director of medical services.

“We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver."

At a lunch that was the subject of an undercover video, Nucatola explained how she alters her abortion 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.

This is inhumane and utterly evil. And now Planned Parenthood and the state of California are trying to crush Sandra for bringing this to light!

+  +  Fighting opponents with almost unlimited resources

Liberty Counsel is waging an aggressive defense of Sandra in both the criminal and civil cases. But that has consumed thousands of hours and imposed enormous financial costs.

Right now, key hearings are getting close—and I need your help.

A major pre-trial hearing takes place in the civil case on July 17. And a demanding, two-week preliminary hearing starts September 3 in the criminal case.

Preparing for these hearings while handling all the other cases and issues in our bulging docket is straining our resources and imposing a huge financial burden on Liberty Counsel.

That's why I'm asking for your much-needed gift now of 35, 100, 250, or even 500 dollars. Your generosity today will help us take on the combined might of the state of California and Planned Parenthood--a huge corporation which makes abortion its "core mission."
