Support David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt! Demand that the Harris County Grand Jury drop their charges…
VICTORY: 07/26/16 -- The charges against David Daleiden have been dropped! For more information, please click here: https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/breaking-texas-dismisses-felony-charge...
In a turn of events that only liberal America could cook up, two members of The Center for Medical Progress have been indicted in Harris County, Texas under charges of soliciting the sale of human organs and tampering with government records.
The real criminals at Planned Parenthood are left to continue their crimes against the unborn while two of the people who helped reveal their crimes (through a series of undercover videos) are unjustly punished.
Sign this petition asking the Harris County Grand Jury to drop their charges against David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott is also copied on this petition. We ask that he follow up with the Harris County District Attorney’s office to ensure that biased parties in the office have not unfairly influenced the charges against The Center for Medical Progress.
There are several questionable elements surrounding the indictment against Daleiden and Merritt.
One questionable element is the intimate involvement of a Harris County Prosecutor with Planned Parenthood. According to The Federalist, “Lauren Reeder, one of the prosecutors in the Harris County district attorney’s office, revealed last August that she was a member of the board of directors for the Planned Parenthood affiliate that was targeted by Daleiden. Reeder’s LinkedIn page indicates that she has been a Planned Parenthood board member since 2013 and a fundraiser for the abortion provider since 2009.”
An office supportive of Planned Parenthood will not be unbiased when considering charges against the organization. Even if Reeder was not directly involved, her influence would likely seep into the case through her colleagues.
Another such element is the fact that Daleiden is charged with purchasing fetal tissue… but the Grand Jury has turned a blind eye to the sale of fetal tissue by Planned Parenthood. There can be no buyer without a seller! The undercover videos recorded by The Center for Medical Progress clearly show Planned Parenthood’s willingness to sell (for profit!) fetal tissue to The Center.
We must demand that the charges against Daleiden and Merrit be dropped. As the Center for Medical Progress pointed out, The Center “uses the same undercover techniques that investigative journalists have used for decades in exercising our First Amendment rights to freedom of speech and of the press, and follows all applicable laws. We respect the processes of the Harris County District Attorney, and note that buying fetal tissue requires a seller as well. Planned Parenthood still cannot deny the admissions from their leadership about fetal organ sales captured on video for all the world to see.”
Sign this petition to stand with Daleiden and Merritt. Do not let this indictment go unnoticed!
