capture from CMP video #8A pro-life group is demanding the resignation of a Texas district attorney after the indictment of two pro-life activists.

The district attorney in Harris County is Devon Anderson, who is a self-described pro-lifer. 

Yet longtime pro-life organization Operation Rescue says Anderson should step down after her office indicted David Daleiden and co-worker Sandra Merritt last month.

The same Houston-based court failed to indict Douglas Karpen, a notorious abortionist, in 2013.

Sullenger, CherylCheryl Sullenger of Operation Rescue says Karpen escaped indictment even though three former clinic workers alleged he was killing babies that were born alive during abortions.

"And provided pictures from their cell phones that they had taken of the victims inside of his clinic," Sullenger also recalls.

Daleiden heads the Center for Medical Progress, which conducted undercover investigations of Planned Parenthood and its controversial partnership with medical research companies. 

Daleiden alleges the abortion giant is harvesting aborted baby parts and selling them for profit, which is a federal crime. Yet a grand jury seated in Harris County to investigate Planned Parenthood indicted Daleiden and Merritt instead, causing an uproar among pro-life activists.

Sullenger tells OneNewsNow that an Operation Rescue attorney recently held a press conference in which he provided legally obtained documents that allege Houston Planned Parenthood invoiced four public universities for the cost of fetal body parts.

"And for the cost that looks suspiciously like profit," which would violate both Texas and federal laws, she alleges.  

Still another concern for Sullenger and Operation Rescue is that Karpen's trial attorney, Chip Lewis, contributed $25,000 to the election campaign of Anderson.

Operation Rescue wants the indictments dropped against the pro-lifers, a new grand jury seated and led by an independent prosecutor, and the resignation of Anderson.
