David Daleiden Petition Tops 100k

"We are standing in solidarity"

A petition circulating on LifeSiteNews in support of David Daleiden – the man indicted by a grand jury for exposing Planned Parenthood's illegal selling of baby parts – has topped 110,000 signatures.

The petition demands that all charges against Daleiden be dropped, including charges of tampering with a governmental record and a misdemeanor count related to buying human tissue. 

"Houston, we do have a problem," said Rev. Patrick Mahoney of the Christian Defense Coalition.

"We are standing in solidarity and say, 'When you attack David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt, you are attacking us and our community,'" Rev. Mahoney continued. "Do not proceed with these unjust indictments."

LifeSiteNews reporter Lisa Bourne delivered the petitions to the Houston D.A.'s office, saying the petitions indicate there are people out there fighting for Daleiden. 

"In delivering these petitions, I am representing more than 100,000 people who demand that these charges against this 27-year-old man and his fellow investigator be dropped at once," said Bourne.

"The next move is up to the Harris County D.A.'s office," she said. "These petitions prove that the world is watching. The indictment is another example of Planned Parenthood's bare-fisted intimidation tactics."
