Pro-lifers rally to save activist from prison for exposing Planned Parenthood
October 4, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – Pro-life leaders are rallying to save pro-life activist David Daleiden from massive fines and a prison sentence. Daleiden was targeted with legal action from the abortion industry for his exposé of Planned Parenthood that allegedly caught the abortion giant selling body parts from aborted babies for profit.
Pro-life leaders are holding a live video webcast on Thursday evening (October 5) to update the public about what they say is a “huge, new breakthrough” in the case that they hope will help Daleiden win his legal battle against the abortion giant.
The pro-life leaders will lay out during the webcast a strategy to raise a $1 million war chest needed to help Daleiden win.
Daleiden, who exposed Planned Parenthood’s baby body parts trafficking via his Center for Medical Progress (CMP) investigation, faces 15 felony charges from the pro-abortion Attorney General of California, Xavier Becerra.
"David stood up to Planned Parenthood's abortion empire. Now we need to stand up for him," said Marjorie Dannenfelser, President of Susan B. Anthony List.
Pro-life activist and entrepreneur Royce Hood called Daleiden's case “one of the most critical cases of our lifetime.”
“The implications for everyone are staggering,” he told LifeSiteNews.
Daleiden has already been held in contempt of court for releasing court-censored videos showing the National Abortion Federation’s conference.
In June, the San Francisco Superior Court dropped 14 of the 15 criminal charges against Daleiden with the possibility of Becerra re-charging him at any time. But the 15 felony charges are now back on the docket.
Even though Daleiden showed the abortion industry breaking laws, he and CMP, not the abortion industry, are the ones now facing legal trouble.
The webcast will share new details about Daleiden’s legal battle and ways in which pro-lifers around the country can help.
“My undercover videos caught top-level Planned Parenthood leadership cavalierly negotiating the harvesting and sale of tiny baby hearts, lungs, livers, and brains, and Planned Parenthood’s criminality evidenced on the tapes has been confirmed by two comprehensive, nationwide Congressional investigations,” Daleiden told LifeSiteNews in a statement.
“The only difference between my undercover videotaping and what local news journalists do every day is that I exposed the California political establishment’s sacred cows—Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Federation,” he said. “Now, the First Amendment rights of all Americans are threatened by California Attorney General Xavier Becerra’s selective and bogus prosecution meant to cover-up for Planned Parenthood’s sale of aborted baby body parts.”
Tom Brejcha, President and Chief Counsel of Thomas More Society, called Daleiden's legal battle "classic David versus Goliath.”
“The Goliath in our story is the evil abortion empire, whose well-funded culture of death embodies corruption and graft...Our David, the little guy in this battle, has exposed Planned Parenthood's inhumane practices. He has struck a national nerve, as shown by the nationwide efforts to defund taxpayer-funded abortion,” he said.
The webcast promises to share how “a huge, new breakthrough in this case can help David win his epic struggle against the abortion giant.”
It will also provide listeners with updates on the battle to defund Planned Parenthood – and the role Daleiden’s videos are playing in this.
Listeners will also be able to ask Daleiden questions.
“People of integrity cannot stand by and allow this travesty to continue unchecked,” said David Bereit, an international pro-life activist formerly of 40 Days for Life. “If you’ve not previously taken a firm stand for what is good and true and right – THIS is now the time to take that stand.”
“The CMP footage shows the callousness of the ‘abortion empire’ and their complete lack of illusions about brutally dismembering small human beings,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, President of the Susan B. Anthony List.

Brejcha, Hood, Bereit, and Dannenfelser will join Daleiden on the webcast. So will former Former Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley and Former Los Angeles Deputy District Attorney Brent Ferreira.
