(LifeSiteNews) — Planned Parenthood published the home address of a Texas Right to Life (TRTL) employee as part of a recent lawsuit over the state’s novel abortion ban, leading the pro-life worker to be “bombarded with threats” from pro-abortion zealots.
A previous copy of the abortion giant’s lawsuit against TRTL over the recently-enacted Texas Heartbeat Act, linked in a September 2 Planned Parenthood press release, contained the home address of one of the pro-life group’s staffers, National Review reports.
The original link “was eventually taken down sometime after September 9, after the pro-life group’s attorneys raised the issue in court,” National Review reports, but the personal information remained accessible long enough to enable a “slew of physical and verbal threats from abortion advocates, some of whom explicitly told the staffer ‘we know where you live.’”
Responding to the incident, a Planned Parenthood representative insisted that the doxing (unapproved leaking of personal identifying information over the internet) was an unintentional result of submitting the necessary information for the legal filings, and that it cooperated when TRTL’s attorneys sought to have the address sealed.
“Any threats of harassment, intimidation, or violence are completely unacceptable and have no place in Texas or anywhere else,” the representative claimed. “Unfortunately, no one knows the trauma of these types of intimidation tactics better than the patients, physicians, nurses, and clinic staff at Planned Parenthood health centers and at abortion clinics nationwide, people who are attacked for seeking or providing essential health care every single day.”
Intentional or not, the hate mail springing from the incident is only the latest in a torrent of abuse the pro-life group has endured for its support of the new Texas law, which requires abortionists to screen for a preborn baby’s heartbeat and prohibits abortion if a heartbeat can be heard (generally as early as six weeks), with exceptions only for medical emergencies.
It's official: Joe Biden has announced that his Administration will be forcing COVID vaccinations on nearly 1/3rd of American citizens, blatantly disregarding the personal objections of millions of people and moving America ever closer towards a medical dictatorship.
We cannot stand for this unprecedented overreach, and we will not submit to Biden's tyrannical public coercion efforts.
Please SIGN this urgent petition informing the President that you will NOT comply with these unconstitutional vaccine mandate orders issued by the Biden Administration, and that elected officials should act in their capacity to block these intrusive demands.
On Thursday, September 9th, Joe Biden announced the latest round of federal orders meant to further coerce large swaths of the public into getting the COVID vaccine -- many against their will.
While the legal standing of these measures is, at best, dubious, the Biden Administration appears more ready than ever to gut our individual rights and practically erase medical autonomy in our country.
This latest escalation in overreach was announced via a televised speech in which Biden outlined a new "six-point plan" that includes far more than just six avenues to achieve mass medical compliance.
Among the most egregious new federal mandates are the following:
- A requirement that all private businesses employing more than 100 people mandate their workers get the Covid-19 vaccine or submit to weekly testing (to be implemented by way of a new Department of Labor rule)
- A requirement that all federal employees and federal contractors get the COVID vaccine
- A requirement that all healthcare workers in facilities that receive reimbursement from Medicare and/or Medicaid (an estimated 17 million) get the Covid-19 vaccine without an alternative testing option
- A requirement that all Head Start teachers get the COVID vaccine
- A federal effort to lobby states to implement vaccine mandates for all school employees, and require regular testing of all students and school staff
- A federal effort to lobby entertainment venues to require proof of vaccination or testing in order to grant entry to the public
- A continuation of mask mandates on all federal properties and during interstate travel (i.e. planes, trains, buses)
All in all, these new vaccine mandates, which will go into effect within the coming weeks, will affect an estimated 100 million American workers -- 2/3rds of the entire workforce!
And, according to an administration official, violations of these unconstitutional requirements could result in fines of up to $14,000.
While this is clearly a political ploy on the part of the Joe Biden and his team of power-hungry Washington insiders to shift the focus from their disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, the American public knows better: After nearly a year and a half's worth of arbitrary, ever-changing, and unconstitutional government mandates in response to the COVID outbreak, it was always a given that the Biden Administration would ramp things up even further when it behooved them.
And now, it would seem that time has officially come.
"This is not about freedom or personal choice," Biden uttered in his remarks, confirming his administration's blatant dismissal of all Americans' right(s) to accept or decline the experimental Covid-19 vaccine.
This is a stunning reversal from Biden's declaration last December that "I don’t think [the vaccine] should be mandatory, I wouldn’t demand it to be mandatory."
In fact, Biden even confirmed his intention to flout states' rights in the process, warning that "If these governors won’t help us beat the pandemic I’ll use my power as president to get them out of the way."
These are not the words of an "empathetic" leader; these are the words of an aspiring dictator. And, for the time being, the only way to stop Joe Biden's tyranny is through mass noncompliance.
As we've said from the beginning, science, basic logic, and common sense should dictate policy regarding COVID and the Delta variant.
But Joe Biden and the federal government have long abandoned those principles throughout this crisis, culminating into this disturbing yet inevitable flurry of intrusive vaccine mandates that use people's jobs, individual autonomy, and livelihood as leverage.
This assault on our individual rights, private businesses, and American workers cannot be tolerated, and the easiest way to combat these unlawful orders is to just say NO.
Please SIGN and SHARE this most important petition letting Joe Biden know that you will NOT comply with the unconstitutional medical demands being made by this administration, and that action should be taken to block any intrusive action against working Americans and private employers.

Unlike most state abortion restrictions, the law “exclusively” relies on private citizens to bring civil suits against abortionists, punishable by a minimum of $10,000 in damages. This unique enforcement mechanism has been credited with its unusual success in court so far; the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision not to block it this month led to an unprecedented situation in which Texas abortion chains have suspended their abortions beyond six weeks — which in turn has led to unprecedented anger among abortion defenders.
Earlier this month, internet trolls and cyber-attackers targeted Texas Right to Life’s Pro-Life Whistleblower website, where Texans could anonymously report abortionists who commit abortions after finding a heartbeat or without testing for one, by trying to flood it with fake tips and with a distributed denial of service (DDOS) attack to try to overwhelm the site’s traffic capacity.
The whistleblower site was temporarily taken down after being dropped by web-hosting services including GoDaddy and Epik, but the pro-life group says it has found a new host and will revive the site in the near future.
Last Friday, the group evacuated its Bellaire office after receiving an emailed bomb threat and a suspicious package. Law enforcement is investigating the matter.
National Review offers additional examples of threatening messages sent to Texas Right to Life since the law’s enactment, including “death and gang rape threats, calls for staff members’ damnation in hell, nude photos, obscenities, and other disturbing harassment.”
One person emailed noose-tying instructions, with a wish for the “scum of the earth” recipients to “get your dues soon.” Another recorded an audio message wishing for TRTL employees to get hit by a car, and still another tweeted that the pro-life group has “provoked the wrath of pro-choice people in 50 states. Just wait until you start getting doxxed.”
Other examples of abuse were stranger and more disturbing, including a direct message letting a staffer know, “I will be casting a hex on you as well as hoping that you are sued to the ground and lose all your money,” and a voicemail declaring, “I love to perform abortions in my own f***ing house and then pickle all the babies and eat them because I f***ing love Satan! … Do you know what’s the best with a pickled baby? A f***ing chili pepper … Have a nice day!”
Ultimately, the fate of the Texas Heartbeat Act and other abortion bans will be decided by the Supreme Court, whether in a future lawsuit about the substance of the law or in an upcoming case concerning Mississippi’s ban on abortion at 15 weeks. All interested parties are anxiously awaiting such a showdown, as it is expected to be the most conclusive test yet as to just how pro-life the Supreme Court’s current majority truly is.
