Liberty Counsel Defends Undercover Investigator of Planned Parenthood

Jan 26, 2016

Liberty Counsel is defending Sandra "Susan" Merritt in both the criminal indictment announced yesterday in Houston and against Planned Parenthood’s lawsuit claiming that her connection to undercover videos produced by the Center for Medical Progress, exposing Planned Parenthood’s gruesome trade in baby body parts, is a violation of the federal “Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations” or “RICO” statute.

In a stunning announcement yesterday, a Texas grand jury indicted Susan and David Daleiden for allegedly “tampering with governmental record” “with intent to defraud and harm” Planned Parenthood. The jury was supposed to investigate Planned Parenthood but is now charging the whistleblowers. Liberty Counsel will defend Susan against both efforts to silence her.

“Planned Parenthood is the “Corrupt Organization” here, and the Texas indictment is outrageous,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. “The fact that our client has been indicted and Planned Parenthood was not is mind-blowing,” Staver said. “Anyone who has watched Planned Parenthood employees sort through dismembered baby parts and heard the Planned Parenthood officials attempt to sell them knows that Planned Parenthood is the criminal, not our client.”
