Advancing Liberty Through Action

Sandra Merritt Loses

Nov 18, 2019

Late Friday the jury returned with a verdict of $1.5 million dollars awarded to Planned Parenthood. A portion of that is assessed to Sandra Merritt, the 66-year-old grandmother who exposed the truth with undercover videos.

The jury was instructed by the biased judge that they had to find Sandra guilty! Even so, this is a hard blow. Already Sandra has sacrificed so much in the last few years, even spending time in jail. Next month she will hear if she will have to go through a criminal trial for her work defending the pre-born and newborn.

My legal team is standing with Sandra, even though this is the most expensive case we have ever had. We absolutely will not give up. My team is moving forward to take this before the Court of Appeals. –Mat

Thanks to Sandra, we know what Planned Parenthood is capable of –dissecting viable, living newborn babies just to get more money. However, this California judge is not the only one trying to help Planned Parenthood.

Back on Capitol Hill, the budget’s continuing resolution is about to expire. This budget compromise allowed the U.S. Senate to refuse to send additional tax dollars to Planned Parenthood while avoiding a government shutdown.

This CR expires in just a few days.

There is going to be incredible pressure placed on Senate Republicans to cave on life issues to pass a new budget. Already this year Liberty Counsel Action has stopped eight radical budget plans coming out of the U.S. House – thanks to your action and help.

If radicals don’t pause their impeachment fervor to come to an agreement on the budget again, we could have another government shutdown. I hope you will take a stand with me today to send a clear message to D.C. Tell them to stop additional funding for Planned Parenthood. Click below to get started.

Here are just a few of the poison pills and “pet” funding projects in HR 2740 that are back on the negotiating table this week:

  • Increase Title X funding, which provides low- or no-cost abortions and abortifacients
  • Provide tax dollars to pay for new research on abortifacients and contraceptives
  • Allow the UNFPA to spend up to 55 million in tax dollars on abortions overseas
  • And force medical staff and doctors to perform abortions and other controversial procedures.

Right now, is the moment to act to ensure that we are not going into deeper debt so that radicals can pay Planned Parenthood more money! Send an urgent fax to Senate leadership and pro-life Democrats to stop HR 2740.

So many of you have already helped us stop this once this year. But we need eternal vigilance for every time it again raises its ugly head. And this week is that moment of truth in Congress.

HR 2740 will push 110 million dollars for damaging sexually graphic programs in public schools across America. Planned Parenthood ex-staff has admitted that these programs are intentionally designed to influence impressionable young children into sexual activity and create a need for more abortions.

It’s outrageous to consider paying tax dollars to push kids into damaging behaviors and then spend more tax dollars to kill the innocent child created by that behavior – all in the same bill.

I want to make sure that you have the opportunity to make your voice heard on this critical battle. My team has created an urgent petition you can sign for us to distribute in the halls of Congress.

Right now, we are preparing for an exciting planning meeting to coordinate with other top pro-life leaders in Washington D.C. This allows us to come together with many groups becoming one extended team. Together all of us can be a better advocate on Capitol Hill and more effectively win on these issues.

At LCA, our goal is to empower each American to become an articulate defender of these newborn and preborn babies.

Your gift now is critically important to continue this work. Please help us stop this evil by partnering with us with a monthly donation, or a one-time gift of generous support!

Thank you for partnering with us to defend these innocent children worldwide!

For life and liberty,

Mat Staver
Chairman, Liberty Counsel Action

P.S. It is absolutely horrific that Planned Parenthood is harvesting organs from living babies. I hope that as a nation, we will rise up to stop the funding of these groups with our tax dollars. Send a fax today to urge Congress to defund Planned Parenthood.

If you are able to, please donate. Your support enables our team to fight for these lives. And sign our petition against HR 2740. Then help us spread the word about this dangerous bill by sending this email to your friends.
