Abortion-Pill Providers Sued for Wrongful Death in Texas Test Case

'We’d like to get to the abortion pill distribution networks. If we can go all the way back to the manufacturer, we’re glad to do that too... '

(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) A nonprofit law firm known as the Thomas More Society challenged an abortion pill distribution network, seeking restitution for wrongful death on behalf of a Texas man against three women who helped his now-divorced wife abort their child.

Marcus Silva accused Jackie Noyola, Amy Carpenter and Aracely Garcia for assisting his former wife, Brittni Silva, by helping her in obtaining illegal abortion pills and conspiring to conceal her pregnancy and subsequent death of their child, Breitbart reported.

Under the Texas Heartbeat Act, anyone who “aids or abets” a “criminal abortion,” is liable to charges. In Texas, a criminal abortion takes place after the ability to detect a heartbeat, which is usually around five weeks gestation.

Attorneys on the case discovered that a New York-based nonprofit working towards “reproductive justice” for Latina women may employ Garcia. She has worked with the organization since 2018.

Texas Solicitor General Jonathan Mitchell, who helped author the Heartbeat Act, sent a litigation-hold letter to the group, ordering them to keep all records related to Garcia or any documents that “might have [to do] with obtaining or distributing abortion pills, including the abortion pills that were used to murder baby Silva.”

“We intend to take discovery from the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Justice to determine whether Ms. Garcia acted within the scope of her employment when she participated in the murder of Mr. Silva’s child,” the letter continued. “We will also take discovery on whether anyone at the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Justice assisted Ms. Garcia in obtaining or distributing abortion pills.”

Peter Breen, executive vice president and head of litigation for the Thomas More Society, was excited by this significant finding so early in the case and expressed hope to litigate abortion pill networks out of existence.

“We’d like to get to the abortion pill distribution networks. If we can go all the way back to the manufacturer, we’re glad to do that too. Finding out early-on here that a national abortion organization may employ one of the defendants — that was a pretty big finding,” he said. “I’m hoping that we are going to have more big findings that will help us to uncover these people doing crimes in the state of Texas and other pro-life states.”
