FRONT ROYAL, Virginia, February 1, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) — LifeSiteNews’ petition urging Harris County to drop all charges against pro-life activist David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt has now passed 100,000 signatures.
The petition demands that District Attorney Devon Anderson “drop these absurd charges against David and Sandra, and to instead refocus your efforts on where they belong: on the inhuman practices of Planned Parenthood in utilizing the bodies of the babies they have killed to make a profit.”
Daleiden and Merritt were indicted last week for offering to purchase fetal parts and for using fake identifications. They face up to 20 years in jail for their actions, which were done in an effort to expose Planned Parenthood's practice of using illegal abortions to illegally profit off of the sale of fetal organs and other parts.
The petition, which was covered by The Associated Press, FoxNews.com, TheBlaze, and other news organizations, will be delivered to the Harris County District Attorney's office at approximately noon on Thursday, February 4.
