(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) Six pro-abortion groups decided to partner with public officials and some of the largest law firms to launch the Abortion Defense Network, a program that connects mothers who want to murder their babies or the butchers they seek and provides those people with legal advice, representation and resources.
According to the Daily Caller, the program that is managed by the Lawyering Project is a joint partnership between the American Civil Liberties Union, Center for Reproductive Rights (CRR), If/When/How: Lawyering for Reproductive Justice, National Women’s Law Center (NWLC) and Resources for Abortion Delivery (RAD), along with some private law firms and public agencies that are “committed to safeguarding abortion.”
“Anyone in the U.S. working to provide or support abortion care can seek legal assistance from the Abortion Defense Network,” the NWLC news release stated. “People will be matched with values-aligned attorneys and be provided with information and resources to not only understand their rights but fight back against unjust proceedings meant to harass and intimidate them.”
Alexandra Snyder, CEO of the Life Legal Defense Foundation, said that many of these firms have been protecting baby murderers for decades.
“Pro-aborts have assembled a cadre of white-shoe legal defense firms to relieve them of their responsibilities under the law,” Snyder said.
“Many of the firms in the newly created ‘Abortion Defense Network’ have been shielding Planned Parenthood and other abortionists from liability for criminal activity, including selling the body parts of aborted babies, for decades. Their lawyers charge upwards of a thousand dollars an hour to ensure that abortionists can continue unabated in their murderous profession.”
Snyder also pointed out that, unlike pro-murder activists, it is pro-lifers who actually need to be protected, citing several cases where “abortion workers have threatened, harassed, and physically assaulted pro-lifers.”
“For example, in one case, an abortion ‘escort’ drove her vehicle into an elderly man who tried to stop her from speeding, blaring her horn, and driving erratically around a peaceful prayer vigil,” she said.
“In another case, a pro-abort savagely attacked a pro-lifer on a public sidewalk, pushing him to the ground and mercilessly kicking him… In each of these cases, officials tasked with protecting the public failed to hold the assailants accountable.”
“After attempting to work with prosecutors to seek justice for victims of assault, battery and other grievous crimes, we sought recourse in civil courts,” Snyder continued.
“Instead of acknowledging that violence in and outside abortion clinics is unacceptable, pro-aborts decided to organize a legal defense team so they can use the legal system to justify continued aggression toward those who seek to protect human life.”
