This Crosstalk was an update on the civil trial in San Francisco of Sandra Merritt.
Bringing listeners the details was Mat Staver, the founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel. Mat has over 230 published legal opinions, has authored 8 scholarly law review publications and 10 books. He’s filed numerous briefs and argued in many federal and state courts. He has also argued two landmark cases before the U.S. Supreme Court.
Jim began with an update regarding the case in Dallas, Texas, involving Jeff Younger. Jeff is trying to protect his son James from gender-transition which is being instigated by the boy’s mother. (See Crosstalk from October 22–‘Dad Tries to Save 7-Year-Old from Gender Transitioning.’)
Texas Governor Greg Abbott sent out a ‘Tweet’ yesterday indicating that he’s putting his Attorney General’s Office along with the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services on this case.
The mainstream media has been basically silent on this issue, as well as the court cases involving Sandra Merritt and Planned Parenthood. The latter is seeking millions of dollars as punishment for Sandra’s undercover video investigation that exposed Planned Parenthood’s trafficking of human baby body parts.
Joining Sandra in her undercover journalistic investigation was David Daleiden. Mat believes they did this according to the law because even though in California it’s a two-part consent situation, if the conversation is in public where others can overhear it, what they did is permissible. If someone feels another individual is engaging in or about to engage in illegal activity, then such investigations are also considered legal and both factors apply in this case.
Mat noted that Planned Parenthood is harvesting baby body parts and selling them for thousands of dollars. In order to stop the exposure by Sandra and David, Planned Parenthood filed a 16 million dollar lawsuit (triple that amount with attorney fees and other costs).
As a result, Mat and Liberty Counsel are in the midst of a multi-week trial that’s just completed week number four and there’s about two to four more weeks to go.
The discussion centers around lies that Planned Parenthood has been caught in while under direct testimony, along with 12 minutes of video that was allowed by the judge.
In the end, how did the jury react? Where does the case go from here? You’ll be brought up to date when you listen to this edition of Crosstalk.
