A crumbling case full of distortions and lies (Liberty Counsel)

Mat Staver,
Liberty Counsel

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman's (D) cast of witnesses distort reality to fit their narrative in a malicious attempt to silence pro-life sidewalk counselors. See my update below on this increasingly bizarre case — Mat.

New York's Attorney General is using the courts to silence ALL pro-lifers and Christians in particular by filing a federal lawsuit against 13 people who protested outside a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic. Liberty Counsel represents one of the thirteen defendants. The AG's witnesses are among the most radical we've ever encountered in a courtroom.

Mary Lou Greenberg is the director of the "escort" program for Choices Women's Medical Center in New York and a state's witness against pro-lifers. Greenberg first testified against about the alleged obstructive actions of Liberty Counsel's client, Scott Fitchett, Jr., but retracted her statements when Liberty Counsel produced video evidence that she was lying.

+ + And here's the bizarre twist…

In addition to her work with the abortion clinic, Greenberg has been the long-time spokesperson for the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA, which advocates a forceful bloody revolt against the United States government "at the soonest possible time." It claims to be training a "revolutionary fighting force to start the all-out fight."

Advocating to overthrow or destroy the government is a felony that carries a 20-year prison sentence. However, Attorney General Schneiderman has been quite willing to overlook Greenberg's seditious speech and has been working closely with her on a crusade to prosecute peaceful Americans with pro-life values!

The deception, outright lies, cover-ups, and sordid connections characterizing Schneiderman's attempt to silence peaceful pro-life speech is appalling. That the state would use a revolutionary communist who advocates the violent overthrow of the United States and who lies on the stand to silence lawful speech is both shocking and an abuse of power. Mary Lou Greenberg also praises Mao Zedong, a mass murderer responsible for killing an estimated 65 million people. No wonder she works for an abortion clinic that kills thousands of defenseless pre-born children.

Outrageously, the AG is relying on extrememists who are collaborating to shut down free speech in his state!

Last week, in one of the most reprehensible statements we've ever heard in court, Merle Hoffman, president and CEO of Choices Women's Medical Clinic (Choices) testified that the "act of abortion positions women at their most powerful" because abortion gives women the "power-and the responsibility-of taking life" so they can control their own lives.

While the cast of characters being called as state's witnesses is among the most radical we've encountered, the growing need to defend pro-life Americans is stretching our budget. We depend on the generosity of friends like you during such times as these when our God-given rights come under intense assault.

Contrary to the deceptions and lies being told in this case, the abortion clinic's security guard, Troyd Asmus, truthfully testified that he was very familiar with our client's actions and that Fitchett never took any of the aggressive actions the lawsuit claims.
