In Court Tomorrow Against Planned Parenthood

Jul 16, 2019

Liberty Counsel faces off in court tomorrow against the nation's leading abortion mill. We're defending pro-life hero Sandra Merritt against an outrageous Planned Parenthood lawsuit demanding $16 million.

This major pre-trial hearing takes place tomorrow at 2 pm local time in San Francisco. We'll be asking U.S. District Judge William Orrick to grant our motion for summary judgment – to throw out this meritless case.

And I'm asking you now for two things. First, will you lift up prayers both now and tomorrow on behalf of Sandra and our Liberty Counsel team as we seek justice on her behalf?

Prayer is powerful. And YOU can make a real difference in the outcome of this critical case by joining thousands of others in prayer.

Ask God for a just and life-honoring outcome to this absurd litigation which has already consumed thousands of hours and imposed exorbitant costs on Liberty Counsel. All in defense of Sandra, who has done NOTHING wrong.

Second, please consider a generous gift to sustain Liberty Counsel as we mount the most vigorous and effective defense possible. The defense of life is costly, but one worth fighting.

We're going up against a deep-pocketed and ruthless $1.7 billion corporation which makes abortion — the dismemberment of tiny preborn boys and girls — its "core mission."

And it's proud of it.

But Planned Parenthood is not the one on trial. Instead, a grandmother and pro-life hero is fighting for her life against corporate lawyers seeking to utterly bankrupt her. And to send a message to every other pro-life American: Don't you dare try this again — or we'll destroy you, too!

Liberty Counsel has already participated in more than 40 time-consuming and expensive depositions in this case. Planned Parenthood attorneys forced Sandra to endure an 11-hour deposition probing her endlessly for answers to all manner of questions.

Because this case has already taken a huge toll on Liberty Counsel's budget, I'm asking you to make a generous gift today to replenish our legal "war chest." We're nearing the trial stage in both Planned Parenthood's lawsuit seeking $16 million from Sandra and in the criminal case brought by the State of California against Sandra.

If California Attorney General Xavier Becerra — a Planned Parenthood fan and the abortion giant's advocate — wins a conviction on his 15-count criminal indictment, Sandra will face a crushing fine and years in prison.

That's why I'm asking for your help now.

Sandra exposed Planned Parenthood's grisly commerce in the body parts of aborted babies. She and her colleague David Daleiden captured Planned Parenthood abortionists and other officials on film openly discussing what they do to the unborn.

"We've been very good at getting heart, lung, liver," Dr. Debra Nucatola, a Planned Parenthood senior director of medical services told Sandra and David at lunch.

She also 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 abortionist says in the video.

This is what Planned Parenthood does to human beings. And it's utterly evil. But it's not Planned Parenthood that's on trial. It's Sandra Merritt, the courageous undercover journalist who brought this to light.

Now we're just hours away from a huge showdown with America's number one serial killer in a federal courtroom in downtown San Francisco. Sandra is literally fighting for her life against outrageous charges. And she needs to know you're standing with her.

Please hold her up in prayer — and our legal team as well. And please make your most generous possible gift right now. It would be wonderful to hear from you right away — before the federal court hearing takes place tomorrow at 2 pm Pacific time.

And take advantage of the $100,000 Liberty Challenge for on-line supporters to make your gift effectively double in its impact now.

Thank you for your prayers and your generous support at this crucial time!

With thanks,

Mat Staver
Liberty Counsel
