Scientology files notice of appeal in time-wasting federal court attack on forced-abortion case - 2018-05-15
Well-regarded California attorney Bert Deixler has once again genuflected to his client, Church of Scientology leader David Miscavige, filing a notice of appeal after the church got roundly defeated in a calculated move to slow down a lawsuit that scares the bejeesus out of Miscavige.
We're talking about the forced-abortion lawsuit filed nine years ago by former Scientology employee Laura DeCrescenzo, who was but 12 years old when she indentured herself to the servitude known as the Sea Organization, which requires signing a billion-year contract and, in her case, working 90-hour weeks until she turned 13, when she was put on the 112-hour adult schedule.
When she was 17, she's testified, she was coerced into having an abortion because that's been Scientology policy since at least the 1970s, that its Sea Org women end their pregnancies so they can keep up the grueling schedule. The policy was supposedly ended in 2010, but we've seen some evidence that it's still continuing today.
