Posted on 09/17/2019 12:51:01 PM PDT by Morgana
A judge has dismissed more of the bogus charges against Sandra Merritt, who helped expose Planned Parenthoods sales of aborted baby parts along with David Daleiden.
Judge Christopher Hite of the San Francisco Superior Court has already dismissed one and a half of the 15 felony criminal charges brought against Sandra Merritt by California Attorney General Xavier Becerra for her undercover journalism work which exposed Planned Parenthoods trade in baby body parts. The statute of limitations has run out on these dismissed charges so they cannot be brought again.
The undercover videos, most of which were recorded at the National Abortion Federations (NAF) 2014 and 2015 abortion convention and trade shows, exposed Planned Parenthoods illegal involvement in harvesting and selling aborted baby body parts to companies such as StemExpress. The recordings capture Planned Parenthood executives haggling over the prices of baby body parts, picking through bloodied arms and legs of aborted babies in a pie tray, and discussing how to alter abortion methods to obtain better body parts for sale.
Merritt and Merritts co-defendant, David Daleiden, the founder of the Center for Medical Progress, are the first undercover journalists to be criminally prosecuted in the history of the state. As Liberty Counsel defends Merritt, no other citizen journalist or journalism organization has ever been charged with a crime for undercover recordings made in the public interest.
During the two-week preliminary criminal hearing, Judge Hite dismissed the charge regarding Doe 8, an abortion professor at a taxpayer-funded, public university, who never showed up to testify last week.
The other charge concerned two alleged events with Doe 9, a Planned Parenthood doctor. However, half of that charge was dismissed since the attorney generals office never played the video in court of the alleged incident on April 8, 2014.
Liberty Counsels Founder and Chairman Mat Staver said, Each day of this hearing reveals that this case is frivolous and should be dismissed immediately. The state of California has abused the legal process by prosecuting Sandra Merritt when she did nothing wrong. The entire case should be dismissed.
The preliminary hearing for undercover journalist David Daleiden began last week in California. Daleiden and Sandra Merritt face 15 felony charges for invasion of privacy because they exposed Planned Parenthoods allegedly illegal sales of aborted baby body parts.

Earlier in the hearing, a witness for the abortion industry admitted that the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) videos were not altered.
Then the testimonies of two witnesses who worked with Planned Parenthood provided more validation of the gruesome baby body parts trade uncovered by the Center for Medical Progress. The witness, who appears to be the Planned Parenthood abortionist in Daleidens first undercover video, was agitated, bothered and, at times, combative.
Both she and a second witness, Doe 12 of the biotech company StemExpress, appeared determined to avoid answering difficult and incriminating questions, but their sworn testimonies verified and vindicated the undercover findings, according to the investigative group.
Doe 9 reportedly tried to avoid answering any questions Friday about harvesting the brains of aborted babies to possibly sell to researchers. In one undercover video, she described how Planned Parenthood abortionists have been pretty successful in harvesting intact brains from aborted babies by flipping the unborn baby into a breech position, which sounds a lot like an illegal partial-birth abortion.
A clearly irritated Doe 9 pretended to not understand the question and refused to give a direct answer about the meaning of her words, according to CMP.
Daleidens and Merritts attorneys said they tried to impeach her twice for lying under oath and contradicting her prior sworn testimony.
“The state of California has abused the legal process ...”
But that definition of “barratry” isn’t a crime.
It SHOULD be; it damned well ought to be felonious, but it isn’t. It’s not even reportable to the damned Bar Association; they’ll just laugh and give attaboys to the offending attorney.
UNTIL this form of barratry is made a felonious crime, this crap will continue; these vile hellspawn fear neither man nor God, nor do they answer to either.
And what goes unpunished to this day?
Genocide is still in vogue folks. The hideous practice of harvesting baby parts and selling them? Why that's still okay evidently.
Living in California I sometimes forget what country I’m in. This is a sham of a trial based on charges of a fascist state. I expect this in Stalin Soviet Union, not here. I am just saddened by this.
Praise God (YHVH Yeshua)!
Let God shine His light on all of this. The more it is exposed, the more people will know about it. Hidden away it’s out of sight. Light’s on the cockroaches scatter.
I wonder how many of these testifying PP folks will bolt. I bet some of them vomit after work just from having to deal with that level of evil all day. And lie.
These are the same people that want to shut down gun shows. Outright MURDERERS having conventions and "trade shows?"
God will punish them accordingly.
But these "people" who squabble like goblins over profitable body parts. They are in fact scuttling, subhuman goblins and not people. They need to be rounded up and hanged. All of them.
Seriously, their behavior has me wondering if demons are real.
Uh...DEMONS ARE REAL....just look around....and If you asked a person that was conceived in a rape, I’ll bet they would be glad they weren’t aborted.
I believe your conclusion is right.
>>...A chilling horrifying article.
I cant handle this stuff...like nazi death camps...can’t handle that either. I can force myself to watch the scariest horror movie...because its not real. The act of this abortion tragedy messes me up I think because of the fact that it is real.
Reminds of the movie Fury line “wait until you see it. -See what? - What a man can do to another man”.
What happens in the name of “women’s health care” or “reproductive rights” could not be made into a horror movie. People would flee from the theaters because it is so awful. Yet, it’s the truth no?
