The Kansas City-based crowdfunding service WonderWe has launched a campaign to help last month’s KFL speaker, David Daleiden, with his legal expenses. Earlier this week, the State of California hit Daleiden with 15 felony counts, 14 for recording people without their permission, and one count of conspiracy to invade privacy. The money raised will go to the Life Legal Defense Foundation, which is representing Daleiden.
Marketing specialist and veteran pro-life activist, Steve Sanborn, launched WonderWe with some local corporate help to provide a crowdfunding platform that will not be shared with groups hostile to “Natural and Supernatural Law.” Says Sanborn, “Pro-life, pro-family, pro-marriage organizations and many more, can create campaign after campaign knowing the platform they use will never be a threat to them.”
Daleiden will need all the help he can get. When he spoke at the Kansans for Life banquet last month in Overland Park, he related how he and his colleagues at the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) infiltrated Planned Parenthood posing as fetal tissue marketers. Once in the door, they recorded hundreds of hours of undercover footage, dozens of eye-witness testimonies, and reams of primary source documents.
At the KFL dinner, Daleiden revealed the banality of Planned Parenthood’s evil. He focused on the mechanics of the trade–the invoices, the pull-down menus, the sales brochures, the packing slips–that allow Planned Parenthood to recycle the dismembered parts of once healthy unborn babies. This practice is legal in California as long as the seller of the parts does not unduly profit. In the Kafkaesque clime of California, however, recording people boasting about the practice is apparently criminal.
“For more than a year, we have looked on in horror at the latest revelations about the abortion industry’s second business of barbarism, the sale of fetal body parts,” says Sanborn. “WonderWe.com comes at a time when the right thing to do, the smart thing to do, really the only thing to do, can actually be done.”
