Advancing Liberty Through Action

The Moloch of America

Oct 15, 2019

The California Attorney General lawyers let slip during the criminal case against my client Sandra Merritt that infanticide is acceptable—even legal—in the state of California for children who are earmarked for abortion!

For years, Planned Parenthood has been pushing infanticide. Shockingly, I am seeing this radical and horrific belief become increasingly mainstream. This is spreading beyond California, to New York, Illinois, Virginia, and even Florida.

This shift in our nation explains why the California AG’s office is refusing to prosecute Planned Parenthood when proof of infanticide has been thrust under its nose. This case demonstrates why the Born-Alive Act is so critically important. We urgently need a nationwide ban on infanticide that includes punishments for those who neglect, abuse, or murder newborn babies.

The Born-Alive Act is the best way—perhaps the only way—that we can protect these newborn babies in California. Those who should be protecting them have proven repeatedly that they will not lift a finger to help.

Sadly, infanticide is not new. It was a common practice to the pagan cultures surrounding ancient Israel. These neighbors believed that if a child was sacrificed to the statue of Moloch, that would guarantee wealth and prosperity to the parents.

These statues were usually made of metal. A roaring fire was built in the god’s belly and outstretched arms slanting up from that belly. The infant would be placed in the statue’s hands and, as it tried to squirm away from the burning metal, it would roll down into the fire and burn to death. Nearby, the priests of Moloch would beat their drums to try to drown out the baby’s cries, so that the parents would not be moved to compassion to try to rescue the infant.

The revolting thing is that we have our own Moloch in America. Planned Parenthood is offering the same illusion of wealth to these often-unwed mothers. And it is drowning out these children's screams with a drug-induced haze behind closed doors. It often uses a salt solution to burn these pre-born babies to death in the womb that was created to protect them. And the mainstream media outlets are complicit by providing a nearly complete media blackout of what is happening in the 700 clinics Planned Parenthood has across our nation.

This sickening reality drives me to my knees. I ask you to join me in prayer for our nation right now. Pray that the God of the impossible will make a way for us to end this now.

And then I ask you to be a part of this solution. Stand up and get involved in changing the culture and the laws in America. Send a fax, write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper. Talk to your neighbors, ask your church to pray, email your friends.

As effective as LCA seeks to be, we need to be joined by a nation that is outraged by the realities of the cultural practices seeping into our nation.

One of the best ways to effect change is to contact the legislators who are sitting on the Born-Alive Act and refusing to pass it. I hope you will click the button below to send an urgent fax right now.

Additionally, I want to clear up some confusion. You may have heard of a Born-Alive law passed in 2002. While this was a great step in the right direction, that law created some confusion. And it has glaring loopholes.

The 2002 law said nothing to define what is medical care. In addition, it did not state what specific requirements of care must be provided. And most importantly, it gave no punishments for medical staff who did not obey it.

That statute has no teeth. And we are seeing proof of this as abortionist after abortionist has not even been charged, let alone convicted, after my client Sandra Merritt provided video proving they were breaking this law.

Today’s Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act will fix the existing statute and close these loopholes. The Born-Alive Act will create punishments for any abortionist who is caught ending the life of a born-alive newborn. It will give nurses the support they need to demand that life-saving care be given to these babies. And it will stop the practice that my client Sandra Merritt exposed: that Planned Parenthood is birthing children alive so that they can make a few more dollars dissecting and selling beating hearts, active brains and other organs.

Please help me tell Congress this has got to stop!

Today, my legal team is cross-examining the “I want a Lamborghini” staffer from Planned Parenthood. The miscarriage of justice is that she is the one who should be behind the defendant’s table, not my client Sandra, who did nothing wrong.
