David Daleiden & Sandra Merritt

 

David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt were brought up on charges in late March 2017 by a Leftist Pro-Planned Parenthood California Attorney General Xavier Becerra.

 

CA Attorney General Xavier Becerra

 

Here is an excerpt from my March 30, 2017 post entitled “California: Privacy Trumps Human Life”:

 

About a half-a-year ago, the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) under the auspices David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt exposed Planned Parenthood not only as a baby-killing factory but also as an agent for selling murdered baby parts to a research organization illegally. The thing that makes Planned Parenthood heinous is that babies had to be born intact for the most precious baby parts. Intact means born alive then killed.

 

Then later in the same post I cross-posted an Operation Rescue email which informs about the charges:

 

Sacramento, CA - Late yesterday, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra charged pro-life investigative journalists David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt of the Center for Medical Progress with 15 felony counts related to secret recordings they made that provided evidence of Planned Parenthood's participation in the illegal trafficking of aborted baby remains.

 

The best that I can tell is that Daleiden and Merritt have two different legal defense teams. Apparently David Daleiden is represented primarily by the Thomas More Society and Sandra Merritt’s team appears to be primarily the Liberty Counsel.

 

Since I am on the Liberty Counsel’s email press release alerts. As such, I found out that the California prosecution managed to have Sandra Merritt handcuffed and thrown in jail.

 

Sandra Merritt handcuffed & jailed

 

A May 5 Liberty Counsel update tells how the California authorities treated Ms. Merritt as she was incarcerated for a grueling 12 hours prior to her attorneys procured her release:

 

Sandra Merritt Finally Released on Outrageous Bail

 

After 12 hours, three judges and $75,000 in bail, Sandra "Susan" Merritt was finally released from jail Wednesday. Merritt turned herself in to California authorities to answer the 15-count felony charges brought against her by the State of California for her undercover work in exposing Planned Parenthood's illegal sale of aborted baby body parts.


Before Merritt was searched, handcuffed and taken away to jail, she and Horatio Mihet, Liberty Counsel's Vice President of Legal Affairs and Chief Litigation Counsel, shared the Bible verse in Psalm 37:5-7 which says, “Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He will do it. He will bring forth your righteousness as the light and your judgment as the noonday. Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, because of the man who carries out wicked schemes.”

 

The State of California made it clear that it will spare no expense to convict her and put her in jail for 11 years. However, Liberty Counsel is defending Merritt and will seek dismissal of these outrageous and baseless charges. Similar criminal charges arising from the same recordings were brought against Merritt in Houston, Texas in 2016 but were eventually dismissed. The allegations say that Merritt and David Daleiden filmed 14 people without permission between October 2013 and July 2015 in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and the county of El Dorado. One felony count was filed for each person. The 15th charge was for criminal conspiracy to invade privacy.

 

In light of the California authorities treating Sandra Merritt like a hardened criminal, the Liberty Counsel has begun an online movement to gather signatures in support of Sandra. Join the "I Stand With Sandra” statement to inspire confidence in this grandmother who has helped to expose the murderous baby-killing Planned Parenthood in their nefarious for-profit murder of live babies to sell the most viable human body parts to human researchers.

 

Below is the Liberty Counsel short email and the text explaining that Sandra Merritt is deserving of support and the LINK that will take you to where LC text is located for you to sign your name.
