OMAHA, Jan. 8, 2018 /Christian Newswire
/ -- Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts will welcome Sandra Merritt to the Nebraskans United for Life Annual Celebration of Life banquet on Friday, Jan. 12, 2018, at Omaha's DC Centre. Merritt, along with undercover journalist David Daleiden, exposed Planned Parenthood's role in the trafficking of aborted baby body parts.
As a result of their video sting on abortion providers and lobbyists, Merritt and Daleiden have been the victims of court action from coast-to-coast. The backlash against the abortion industry has culminated in a Congressional investigation and a national cry to defund Planned Parenthood.

"We are excited to have the governor and Ms. Merritt join us," said Kristan Gray, executive director of Nebraskans United for Life. "Both have been staunch advocates in the quest to restore a culture of life for pre-born children. We welcome Governor Rickett's open and unwavering support of life and look forward to hearing Sandra's first-person narrative of the work she did, along with David Daleiden, to expose the abortion industry's unconscionable trade in aborted human body parts."
Thomas More Society attorney Matt Heffron works out of the national nonprofit law firm's Omaha office and will be on hand to support Merritt. "As a participant in the defense of Ms. Merritt's colleague, David Daleiden, I applaud the way she has put herself on the line to fight for what is right," said Heffron. "The work done by Daleiden and Merritt has shone light on atrocities committed by Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Federation. Decades of nefarious operation in the dark have been revealed online, in courtrooms and the halls of Congress, because of the efforts of these two brave citizen journalists. The Thomas More Society is honored to help defend their right to tell the truth."
