MFI stands with David

by MFI News

If you have not yet heard, I want to make you aware of Planned Parenthood’s newest attempt at silencing pro-life voices. A Texas grand jury, motivated by politics, indicted David Daleiden as well as another pro-life activist, Sandra Merritt, on counts of tampering with a governmental record and buying human tissue.
