Bert Deixler On Monday, Scientology attorney Bert Deixler filed the church's final salvo at Laura DeCrescenzo before Monday's crucial hearing in her forced-abortion lawsuit.

In 2009 Laura filed her lawsuit, and one of its main arguments was that since she had left Scientology's Sea Org in 2004, she had come to a different understanding of her life in that strict group that requires signing a billion-year contract. After she had left it in 2004, she remained a Scientologist for four more years until finally becoming disaffected and reading eye-opening information about Scientology online.

Only then, she argued, did she gain the perspective necessary to understand how much her life in the Sea Org — which had begun when she was only twelve years old — was a life of coercion, indoctrination, and deprivation of liberty. Central to that experience was the pressure she was put under, when she became pregnant at 17, to have an abortion. Like many other women who have left the Sea Org, she says that she was forced to have the abortion in the larger interests of Scientology — the "greatest good for the greatest number of dynamics."
