(Truth Alliance Foundation) – Until her untimely death a year ago, Dr. Judith Reisman was a lifelong champion for the rights of children. For decades she dedicated her life to combat the increasingly accepted and abhorrent ideology that children are sexual from birth, that they have a right to experience sexual pleasure whenever and with whomever they want, that purity is a false value.

She was fully committed to do everything she could to protect childhood innocence, and to do so, she took direct aim at Alfred Kinsey and his self-proclaimed pamphleteer, Hugh Hefner. At one point Playboy sued a TV station in the Netherlands for libel for airing Dr. Reisman’s accusations that Playboy had published child pornography. Dr. Reisman prevailed.

She never stopped going after Kinsey, Playboy, the porn industry, big pharma, and the entire sex-industrial complex. She stood almost alone for years before she began creating a network of allies who came to see the seriously flawed foundation, Kinsey’s twin works on the Sexual Behavior in the Human Male and Sexual Behavior in the Human Female.

Millions of dollars were behind Kinsey’s research and billions were, and are, behind the expansive sex industry. Those deep pockets were loath to give up any ground because of a single voice speaking against them. Before Reisman came along, the “big money” from the giant foundations and businesses were able to silence or crush the occasional voice opposing the Kinsey narrative.

Dr. Reisman’s loss leaves a vacuum that will be impossible to fill.

One reason the false narratives regarding sexual norms and gender ideology became so deeply entrenched is because there was no one to challenge the falsehoods that Kinsey thrust onto society.

For more than two decades after his works were first published very few spoke against his findings, and those who did were quickly silenced – either denounced as denying science or mocked as prudish bible thumpers who denied reality. During that unchallenged period, penalties for a variety of sex crimes were dramatically reduced, ages of consent were lowered, and promiscuity became accepted as the norm. Society became overtly sexualized.

Most of us were unaware of what was happening. It wasn’t even until 1966 that Dr. Reisman became aware there was a problem. That year her 13-year-old daughter was raped by a neighbor’s boy.

The investigation determined that the boy had most likely been aroused and motivated by viewing his father’s Playboy magazines. At some point during the investigation, the boy’s family left the country, escaping justice by taking their teen child offender with them.

The Surgi-Center, a Washington, D.C. abortion clinic infamous for offering late, second trimester abortions, and its owner, abortionist Cesare Santangelo, are at the center of a scandal involving possible violations of federal laws against partial-birth abortion and infanticide.

In an exclusive video interview with LifeSiteNews, Lauren Handy, the director of activism at Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising (PAAU), told LifeSiteNew's Editor-in-Chief, John-Henry Westen that, with the help of a whistleblower, her organization rescued and properly buried the remains of about one hundred aborted babies from Santangelo's Surgi-Center.

But, five of the deceased babies were so large and so developed that they suspected the Surgi-Center of engaging in the illegal practices of partial-birth abortion or infanticide (i.e., killing the child after birth) à la Kermit Gosnell.

The shocked pro-lifers then gave the aborted babies to the police and brought the matter to the attention of the D.C. Medical Examiner's office. But, the Medical Examiner's office has refused to take any action, saying they will not perform autopsies on the babies.

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition to the Department of Justice, asking them to launch an investigation into alleged violations of federal law by Santangelo and the D.C. Surgi-Center, under either the Partial Birth Abortion Act (2003) or the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act (2002). *Anyone - no matter where you reside - can sign this petition!

Unfortunately, the story doesn't end there.

Handy and eight of her fellow pro-life rescuers in PAAU are, themselves, now facing jail-time after being arrested by the FBI for conducting a traditional pro-life sit-in in October, 2020, at the very same abortion center from which the late-term deceased babies (mentioned above) were rescued.

Please note that the two events - the pro-life rescue in 2020 and the gruesome discovery of the five near-to-full-term babies in the Surgi-Center's "bio-medical waste" earlier this year - are almost one-and-a-half years apart.

Thus, Handy believes that their recent arrest is no coincidence...and, moreover, that the FBI is being used to create a smokescreen by arresting her and the other pro-lifers.

At the same time, the D.C. Medical Examiner's office does not seem interested in discovering the truth about the deaths of the five aborted babies and possible illegal partial-birth abortions or infanticide happening at the D.C. Surgi-Center.

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition to the Department of Justice, asking them to launch an investigation into alleged violations of federal law by Santangelo and the D.C. Surgi-Center, under either the Partial Birth Abortion Act (2003) or the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act (2002).

The DOJ press release claims that the pro-lifers: "engaged in a conspiracy to create a blockade at the reproductive health care clinic to prevent the clinic from providing, and patients from receiving, reproductive health services."

But, commenting on the arrest, Lauren Handy stated: "Media reports have stated that we ‘invaded’ the abortion center and ‘disrupted’ women from exercising their ‘reproductive rights’. No, that is not what we did."

"We entered the clinic and sought to love the women who were already there for their abortion procedures," Handy said. "We tried to offer them help so they would choose life. We non-violently defended the unborn who were about to be exterminated – the innocent, the most vulnerable, killed in horrific acts of violence and treated as so much trash."

Tireless pro-life activist Dr. Monica Miller, the director of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society and leader of Red Rose Rescue, told LifeSiteNews that "this is the first time any of them are facing federal charges. That the rescuers were hunted down by FBI agents is unprecedented in the history of pro-life activism."

All of this...possibly...for discovering five near-or-at-term aborted babies at Cesare Santangelo's D.C. Surgi-Center, and for seeking to give justice and dignity to the murdered babies.

The truth now needs to come out!

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition to the Department of Justice, asking them to launch an investigation into alleged violations of federal law by Santangelo and the D.C. Surgi-Center, under either the Partial Birth Abortion Act (2003) or the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act (2002).

Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this urgent petition!

Dr. Reisman’s daughter fell into a long depression and Dr. Reisman set out on a decade long quest to understand what happened and why. She even returned to college to get her M.A. and PhD in communications from Case Western.

Over the years Dr. Reisman peeled back layer after layer of the fraudulent data used to build the false narrative promoted by Kinsey and his cohorts. She concluded that there was nothing of substance to support Kinsey’s claims, that his “studies” were giant frauds incapable of replication since they were based largely on anecdotal evidence, and the use of unscientific methodology.

She learned that Kinsey even worked with active pedophiles, in despicably unethical partnerships, to have them record their experiences of sexually abusing children, which Kinsey used to justify significant portions of his claims.

Kinsey was a fraud, his findings lacked scientific value, and his solicitation of pedophiles made Kinsey and his colleagues criminally suspect.

With this in mind, Dr. Reisman set about the almost impossible task of rolling back the three-decade head start of legal and cultural change, which made the task akin to stopping the rotation of a planet. But she set about that task, methodically gathering evidence, conducting studies, writing books—seven in all, speaking at scores of conferences and guest lectures, and authoring hundreds of articles, all the while building a network of relationships with individuals and small conservative organizations.

She became the focal point, the hub for hundreds of people and groups who she marshalled to the cause. She helped hundreds of other authors, with research and direction and encouragement. Many wrote books themselves. She readily shared her voluminous research and spent countless hours sharing her thoughts and insights.

Dr. Reisman traveled all over the world giving advice to government agencies, religious organizations, and groups who were interested in stopping the moral slide we have witnessed over the past 70 years.

Dr. Reisman was a dedicated servant of God, a devoted mother and grandmother, a brilliant scholar, a prolific writer, a fearless warrior, a wonderful friend, and a great American. She was one of a kind.
