The Thomas More Society is looking to challenge abortion pill distribution networks in a wrongful death lawsuit it filed on behalf of a Texas man against three women who allegedly helped his then-wife abort their baby, executive vice president & head of litigation Peter Breen said on Monday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily.
As Breitbart News previously reported, the plaintiff, Marcus Silva, is accusing Jackie Noyola, Amy Carpenter, and Aracely Garcia of assisting his then-wife Brittni Silva in an unlawful abortion by providing her with illegally obtained abortion pills and conspiring with her to conceal the pregnancy and the abortion from him. The civil lawsuit was filed in Galveston County District Court, and the lead attorney is former Texas Solicitor General Jonathan Mitchell, who is known for helping craft the Texas Heartbeat Act, SB 8….
Breen said Thomas More Society attorneys, after initially filing the lawsuit, discovered that Aracely Garcia is allegedly employed by the New York City-based National Latina Institute for Reproductive Justice and has been extensively involved with that organization since at least 2018. Mitchell subsequently sent a litigation-hold letter to the pro-abortion organization on March 16, telling the group to preserve all records related to Garcia and any involvement that the organization “might have with obtaining or distributing abortion pills, including the abortion pills that were used to murder baby Silva.”
“We intend to take discovery from the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Justice to determine whether Ms. Garcia acted within the scope of her employment when she participated in the murder of Mr. Silva’s child. We will also take discovery on whether anyone at the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Justice assisted Ms. Garcia in obtaining or distributing abortion pills,” the letter reads.
Breen called the discovery of Garcia’s alleged place of employment a “big finding” so early in the case, and said it could potentially lay the groundwork for expanding the lawsuit to abortion pill networks and even abortion pill manufacturers in the future….
