I've got good news, bad news, and really bad news for the pro-life movement.
The good news is the judge dismissed seven of the fifteen felony criminal charges against pro-life citizen journalist David Daleiden stemming from his undercover investigation of Planned Parenthood, leaving him facing eight felony counts.
The bad news is the California Attorney General added a ninth felony charge at David's arraignment.
And the really bad news is that David may have to stand trial before another San Francisco jury which will decide whether he spends a decade locked away in a state penitentiary.
So we've got to be prepared for the worst!
That's why I'm asking you to make an emergency donation to the Thomas More Society's DAVID DALEIDEN CRIMINAL DEFENSE FUND today.
You see, if David has to face another jury trial on just two or more felony charges, we're still in real danger of jurors delivering Solomonic-type justice -- a "split verdict" -- that would result in David spending time in a prison cell.
Why? Because this young man had the courage to lead an undercover investigation that captured video evidence of the abortion goliath conspiring to illegally harvest and sell aborted baby body parts.
Now we're going to need to put on an over-the-top defense to make sure jurors are not pressured to "compromise" and convict David of even one of the charges.
So if you agree it's absolutely outrageous that David is the one facing criminal charges and hard time in a state penitentiary -- rather than Planned Parenthood's executives...
...then I pray you'll make an emergency donation to help us defend David and other pro-life heroes today.
My friend, the reality is...
You couldn't be there when David entered the dark underbelly of the abortion industry -- sitting across the table from abortionists haggling over the price of baby body parts with cold-blooded clarity... The chilling words of one Planned Parenthood executive -- "I want a Lamborghini." -- are difficult to forget.
You couldn't be there as David saw with his own eyes the preborn children who had been killed with great precision to preserve their organs for maximum profit.
You couldn't be there when the videos were released and Planned Parenthood and their allies conspired to crush David with trumped up legal charges and an armed raid on his home in which they seized laptops, hard-drives, and recording equipment.
And you couldn't be there with David when he appeared in both Texas and California for booking and processing -- fingerprinted and photographed for mug-shots like a common criminal. (But our criminal defense team was there!)
That's why I'm prayerfully asking you to consider making a special gift of $35, $50, $100 or more to help us drag more of Planned Parenthood's dark criminality into the light.
My name is Tom Brejcha. I'm the President and Chief Counsel of the Thomas More Society -- a not-for-profit law firm underwriting and helping to spearhead David's civil and criminal defense.
The Thomas More Society is proud to defend many of the most renowned leaders in America's pro-life movement -- because when dark forces like Planned Parenthood unleash their full might to legally, financially and personally destroy our clients -- we fight back.
And I have to tell you, despite all that David is facing, his spirits remain high. Of course, I've never known anyone in this kind of position who didn't feel an empty pit in his stomach.
But David's not giving up. And he never will do so! In fact, I know he sees this as yet another opportunity to drag more of Planned Parenthood's dark criminality into the spotlight.
My friend, that's what David set out to do -- and that's what you and I can make sure he continues doing by winning this legal battle.
Now I'll get right down to it... We anticipate David's legal defense will cost us more than $6,000,000. That's right, SIX MILLION DOLLARS.
You see, it's not just one legal battle we're fighting. Altogether David has been sued or prosecuted six times! Already we defeated a two-count felony and misdemeanor criminal case brought by the District Attorney of Harris County (Houston), Texas at the behest of Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast. And another nasty civil case brought by a baby body parts broker, Stem Express, in Los Angeles was dismissed.
Right now we're defending David in four other active cases.
In the civil lawsuit filed by Planned Parenthood, we are appealing the jury's verdict, along with the judge's order permanently banning David from doing any more undercover journalism against Planned Parenthood.
In another lawsuit filed by the National Abortion Federation, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has refused to lift the preliminary "gag order" injunction prohibiting David from releasing any more of his videos exposing the abortion giant's evil.
And in the civil lawsuit filed by anonymous Planned Parenthood personnel in federal court up in Seattle, after we achieved victory for a second time on appeal after the lower court judge suppressed David's right to review public records of taxpayer-funded transactions involving abortionists' sales of aborted babies' body parts to middle-man brokers for resale to research laboratories around the U.S., that same lower court judge boldly re-entered essentially the same truth-suppressing decree that we had twice managed to overturn on appeal. As a result, we've had to file yet another appeal -- our third time in quest of true justice on appeal -- so that David can see and tell the world about the evil fruits of this gross misuse of taxpayers' dollars!
We've also just filed a federal civil rights lawsuit for David in Los Angeles, taking former California Attorney General Kamala Harris and incumbent Xavier Becerra to task and calling them to account for prosecuting David in bad faith twisting and perverting California's anti-eavesdropping law in an unprecedented persecution of a citizen journalist by reason of his disfavored political views. This offensive tactic is a key part of our defense, as we cannot let David suffer such a trampling of his free speech and due process rights without a counterattack.
But Planned Parenthood has millions of dollars to spend on lawyers and lobbyists -- and they'll stop at nothing to silence David and prevent the truth from coming out.
That's why we urgently need your financial support today.
And that's why I'm praying you will use this link to make an emergency contribution of $35 to the DAVID DALEIDEN CRIMINAL DEFENSE FUND.
This truly is a "David versus Goliath" type of battle – with Planned Parenthood, the National Abortion Federation, Kamala Harris, and their allies all arrayed against our "David."
It's a grave injustice that David is the one being hit with felony charges while Planned Parenthood (so far, at least) has gone unprosecuted and unpunished.
But by clearing David of these charges... you and I can allow him to continue with his incredibly important life-saving work.
So please make your emergency contribution of $35 or more today and join the battle against Planned Parenthood .
I know David will be deeply touched and encouraged by your generous support.
May God bless you,
