We stand with David Daleiden who is being threatened with jail for exposing Planned Parenthood
Apr. 1, 2017
Pro-life activists worldwide have slammed a decision by abortion-supporting law officials. David Daleiden, whose undercover videos rocked US abortion giant Planned Parenthood by revealing its illegal sale of baby body parts, has been charged with fifteen felonies related to his undercover journalism exposure of the gruesome practice.
Daleiden and his colleague Sandra Merritt at The Centre For Medical Progress have been targeted by the California Attorney General, Xavier Becerra, who himself has received thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood is a major Democratic Party contributor, targeting millions of dollars to pro-abortion legislators and justice officials. California’s former Attorney General, Kamala Harris, actually collaborated with Planned Parenthood to draft the legislation that is now seeking to retroactively criminalize the Center For Medical Progress – and undercover journalism.
Daleiden and Merritt secretly filmed highly-ranked Planned Parenthood officials negotiating with the sale of hearts, livers, lungs and brains of aborted babies. The videos shocked a worldwide audience in 2015 with one Planned Parenthood official shown complaining the price on offer was “lowball” because “I want a Lamborghini”. As CMP rolled out the videos Planned Parenthood bizarrely claimed that they were “misleading” and “edited”.
Using a California law that requires both parties to consent to recording, David Daleiden was charged with one count of felony for each of fourteen Planned Parenthood officials seems giggling and haggling about baby body parts and one extra count of conspiracy to invade privacy. The law has been widely criticised for its chilling effect on investigative journalism. In 2016 Houston, Texas prosecutors filed similar charges against CMP reporters only to see the charges promptly dismissed when they came to court.
Unfazed by the legal persecution of their undercover journalism, Daleiden and Centre for Medical Progress released a shocking new video of a Planned Parenthood abortionist joking about needing to “hit the gym” to be strong enough to dismember babies. The abortionist, Dr DeShawn Taylor, appeared to coyly admit to infanticide. She said of the treatment of babies born alive during abortions “I mean the key is, you need to pay attention to who’s in the room, right?” Taylor's admission would appear to be a clear breach of the Arizona law requiring babies that survive abortion to be brought to hospital.
David Daleiden said “The only difference between Planned Parenthood’s barbaric abortion business, and that of the notorious Dr. Kermit Gosnell, is that Gosnell was not so careful as to ‘pay attention to who’s in the room.”
Popular commentator Matt Walsh has described the felony charges as a ‘persecution’ of Daleiden – and his excellent commentary on this disgraceful episode is well worth reading.
