California Lawmaker Introduces Bill to Criminalize Undercover Filming at Abortion Facilities

Following controversy over undercover videos filmed by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) into the practices of Planned Parenthood, a lawmaker in California has introduced a bill that would make secretly recording inside abortion facilities punishable by up to a year behind bars.

“It is the intent of the legislature to enact legislation to prohibit any person from intentionally video recording a confidential communication, or disclosing or distributing that video-recording communication, without obtaining the consent of all parties to the communication,” A.B. 1671, introduced by Assemblyman Jimmy Gomez ,reads.

It criminalizes any person who “intentionally discloses or attempts to disclose, or distributes or attempts to distribute, distributes, in any manner, in any forum, including, but not limited to, Internet Web sites and social media, or for any purpose, the contents of the a confidential communication with a health care provider.”

Violations may result in up to a year behind bars and/or a $2,500 fine. Repeat offenders may face up to a $10,000 fine.

Publishing and broadcasting groups had expressed opposition to the bill until it was amended to include language applying specifically to health care providers.

Planned Parenthood has now expressed its support of the measure, calling it “a key improvement that closes a current loophole in privacy laws around illegal videotaping.” It has also issued a letter urging lawmakers to “support AB 1671 (Gomez) to prohibit the distribution of illegally obtained video tapes and protect privacy.”

But pro-life groups have expressed concern over the proposed legislation, stating that it not only violates the First Amendment but also would prohibit evidence of criminal activity from being obtained and turned over to authorities.

“For years, undercover journalists have documented Planned Parenthood employees covering up for sex traffickers, failing to report child sexual abusers, and trafficking in baby body parts,” Lila Rose of Live Action said in a statement. “Rather than be more transparent with the public, Planned Parenthood wants to make it a crime for the media to publish evidence that it might be doing something illegal.”

She remarked that because Planned Parenthood is publicly funded, Americans need to know about the activities at the organization.

“This bill puts Planned Parenthood’s interests ahead of the First Amendment, its clients, and the public, and it would keep evidence of illegal or abusive activity hidden from nearly everyone’s view,” Rose stated.

As previously reported, CMP’s David Daleiden released a series of undercover videos last year after he had posed as a representative of a fetal tissue procurement company in order to engage in discussions with Planned Parenthood officials as a potential buyer of bodily organs. He recorded the interactions, conducted at various locations across the country, as part of his “human capital” investigative series.

The first of nearly a dozen videos was released by CMP featured Planned Parenthood Medical Director Deborah Nucatola, who nonchalantly munched on salad and sipped wine as she talked about adjusting the child so as not to crush certain organs due to the demand for the body part.

“I’d say a lot of people want liver. And for that reason, most providers will do this case under ultrasound guidance, so they’ll know where they’re putting their forceps,” she explains.

“[Y]ou’re just kind of cognizant where you put your graspers,” Nucatola outlines. “You try to intentionally go above and below the thorax, so that—-you know. We’ve been very good at getting the heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so ‘I’m not gonna crush that part. I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.’”

The second video showed Mary Gatter, the president of Planned Parenthood’s Medical Directors Council, haggling with the undercover investigators about the compensation for the fetal organs, laughing, “I want a Lamborghini.” Other footage showed an actual aborted baby being dissected in a dish, with an assistant declaring, “Another boy!” and another video showed an abortionist laughing about how harvesting an intact baby head would be “something to strive for.”

Planned Parenthood apologized for the insensitive “tone” of the first video, but denied that it profits from its agreements with scientific organizations. It soon announced that it would stop receiving reimbursement for “expenses” surrounding the provision of body parts of aborted babies. The abortion giant argued that the dead babies were beneficial in research to find cures for diseases.

Key Charge Dropped Against Anti-Abortion Activist in Planned Parenthood Sting

A Texas judge on Tuesday dropped a misdemeanor charge regarding the purchase of human tissue against an anti-abortion activist indicted for using a fake driver’s license ID to aid secret filming inside a Planned Parenthood facility, prosecutors said.

David Daleiden, indicted in January by a Houston-area grand jury, is still facing a felony charge of tampering with a governmental record, which can bring up to 20 years in prison.

“We do not intend to appeal the judge’s decision. Our office remains focused on the felony charge,” Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson said in a statement.

The misdemeanor charge for trying to procure fetal tissue carries a punishment of up to one year in jail.

“This is a huge win for the pro-life movement,” said Jared Woodfill, an attorney for Daleiden. “The court recognized that the charges brought by the Harris County District Attorney’s Office were flawed from their inception.”

Daleiden has been offered a probation deal in which, if he keeps a clean record for a certain period of time, charges would be dropped, prosecutors said in February.

Daleiden’s lawyers said at the time he planned to reject the deal and was seeking an apology from prosecutors.

Daleiden leads the California-based Center for Medical Progress, which released secretly filmed videos from a Houston-area Planned Parenthood office to accuse the women’s health group of trading in aborted fetal tissue.

Planned Parenthood has denied Daleiden’s allegations and sued in federal court, arguing that the people who recorded the videos acted illegally.

In a twist for the Texas Republican leaders who had ordered an investigation based on the allegations from Daleiden’s group, the grand jury in January cleared Planned Parenthood of wrongdoing and indicted video makers Daleiden and Sandra Merritt.

Lawyers for the anti-abortion activists have not disputed that the pair used false IDs but said they did so for investigative journalism.

D.A. Refusing to Prosecute Planned Parenthood Selling Baby Parts Was Defeated, Replacement Fires Her Staff

You may remember Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson, the faux “pro-life” Republican who refused to prosecute accused neck-twisting Houston abortionist Doug Karpen. She also later flipped a grand jury that was supposed to investigate Planned Parenthood, but instead indicted pro-life journalists David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt.

Daleiden and Merritt’s charges were later dismissed after it was revealed that Anderson had violated the law to indict them.

Illustrating that old adage, “what goes around comes around,” Anderson was soundly defeated in November.

But it gets better.

The new District Attorney-Elect Kim Ogg has decided to “drain the swamp” of corruption, which plagued the office during Anderson’s tenure.

Ogg has notified 40 prosecutors that their services are no longer needed.  Cheesy Grin Cheesy

Among them is Assistant District Attorney Sunni Mitchell.

Anderson had selected Mitchell to oversee the 2013 Karpen grand jury and the 2015 Planned Parenthood/Daleiden grand jury. Mitchell has been blamed for leaking information from the “secret” grand jury process to Planned Parenthood then working with them to indict Daleiden and Merritt. Her manipulation of both grand juries protected Karpen and Planned Parenthood from criminal prosecution.

Karpen was accused in a formal complaint filed by Operation Rescue of murdering babies born alive during shoddy abortion procedures, while two years later, Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast was caught on film by Daleiden and Merritt haggling for the best price in exchange for aborted baby parts.

The Anderson/Mitchell 2015 grand jury never even took a vote on Planned Parenthood’s charges, citing a lack of evidence, but Mitchell was caught colluding with Planned Parenthood during the entire “investigation.”

Despite efforts to expose the tainted process, it seemed like Planned Parenthood was off the hook for good.

However, more good news came last week when the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee announced it had referred Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast to the Department of Justice for criminal prosecution.

Apparently, the Judiciary Committee miraculously found the evidence Anderson said didn’t exist.

For three years, Operation Rescue posted numerous articles and even attended a large press conference in Houston last year in an effort to expose the corruption in Anderson’s office that was thwarting justice.

That makes recent developments particularly satisfying for us.

“Part of what happens when we work to end the injustice of abortion is that corruption, which protects abortion abusers, is exposed,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “This serves to benefit everyone in society, even those who have little interest in abortion.”

Now that Anderson and Mitchell have been sent packing, Operation Rescue has plans for the New Year. We are preparing to formally request a reopening of the murder investigation against Karpen once the new District Attorney takes office in January.

Maybe with the swamp finally drained, justice can finally be found.

Ryan Pledges to Defund Planned Parenthood
Nation's largest provider of abortions received $550 million in 2015

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) indicated Thursday that congressional Republicans might push to defund Planned Parenthood using the budget reconciliation process.

Ryan was asked at his weekly press briefing whether the effort to repeal and replace Obamacare would include a provision to redirect hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars from Planned Parenthood to women’s health care centers that do not provide abortion.

“Planned Parenthood legislation would be in our reconciliation bill,” Ryan said.

The reconciliation process allows a simple majority of senators, rather than 60 senators, to pass certain forms of budgetary legislation without the threat of a filibuster. Republicans, who control the Senate 52-48, plan to use reconciliation to repeal major aspects of Obamacare, just as Democrats used reconciliation to amend the law in 2010.

Congressional Republicans passed a bill in 2015 that would have defunded Planned Parenthood in the summer of 2015 after undercover videos were released about the group’s organ harvesting operations. Senate Democrats blocked the bill in August, preventing it from coming to a vote. Reconciliation would help Ryan and Republicans avoid stalling tactics after President-elect Donald Trump takes office on Jan. 20.

Planned Parenthood received more than $550 million from taxpayers in the 2015 fiscal year, a 5 percent increase from 2014. The government payments accounted for 40 percent of its revenue, according to its 2015 annual report. The group received a huge boost in funding when President Obama took office in 2009 and repealed the Mexico City Policy, which bans the use of taxpayer dollars for abortion in foreign aid.

The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), which was overseen by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, gave Planned Parenthood $100 million between 2010 and 2012. The group continued to rake in taxpayer cash throughout 2015 and 2016, winning nearly $28 million in awards from federal agencies.

Pro-life groups hailed Ryan’s decision. Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, said that redirecting money given to Planned Parenthood would be a better use of taxpayer dollars, highlighting the fact Planned Parenthood facilities do not have mammogram machines despite receiving money for cancer screening and other health care services. Many community health centers have access to such machines.

“Today’s commitment by Speaker Ryan to re-direct the abortion giant’s taxpayer funding to community health centers is a victory for women’s health care. Community health centers provide far more services than Planned Parenthood and outnumber them 20 to 1 nationwide,” she said in a release. “We commend Speaker Paul Ryan on his continued resolve to fund women’s health care, not abortion.”

Ryan’s announcement came as new polls were released showing that a majority of voters in 2018 battleground states oppose taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood. SBA List polled 1,650 voters in Montana, Florida, Missouri, North Dakota, Ohio, and Wisconsin—all seats Democrats are defending in 2018 elections.

Nearly 60 percent of respondents said they oppose taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood, with 47 percent saying they strongly oppose funding the group. Forty percent supported taxpayer funding, while only 28 percent said they strongly supported it. The poll found that a senator’s position on the issue could affect their support from voters: 60 percent said they would be less likely to vote for someone who supports funding Planned Parenthood, while 27 percent said they would be more likely to support such a politician.

“Voters agree: taxpayer dollars would be better spent on community and rural health centers that provide comprehensive, whole-woman care, not abortion businesses like Planned Parenthood,” Dannenfelser said in a statement.

Planned Parenthood Action Fund President Cecile Richards said the group will fight to keep its taxpayer funding.

“Defunding Planned Parenthood is dangerous to people’s health, it’s unpopular, and it would leave people across the country without care,” she said. “The millions of supporters across the country are ready to defend care with everything we’ve got.”

Democrats Vow to Fight for Planned Parenthood’s Federal Funding

House Democratic lawmakers vowed to “fight” against Republican efforts to repeal Obamacare and strip Planned Parenthood of federal funding.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-NY) aint that name appropriate  Roll Eyes , Rep. Diana DeGette (D-Colo.) and other House Democrats joined pro-choice advocates on Capitol Hill Jan. 5 to show support for the Affordable Care Act and Planned Parenthood.

On Friday, the House voted 227-198 to begin the Obamacare repeals process by instructing relevant committees to come back with Obamacare repeal legislation by Jan. 27.

Slaughter said bringing the Affordable Care Act to the House floor in 2009 when she was chairwoman of the House Rules Committee was one of the “proudest” moments of her life.

“One of the most egregious things is before we had this insurance that covered us nationally, eight states in the U.S. and the District of Columbia considered domestic violence a pre-existing condition,” she said.

Slaughter noted that survivors of abuse are able to get healthcare because Obamacare prohibits insurance companies from denying coverage for individuals with pre-existing conditions.

Some residents of states such as Arizona have seen their health insurance premiums go up 100 percent in 2017 under Obamacare.

Despite this, Slaughter said the Affordable Care Act has made medical insurance better and cheaper for women.

“Republicans won’t acknowledge it, but there is no doubt the Affordable Care Act has made insurance for women in America better, cheaper, and more available. I am prepared to fight tooth and nail against the push to repeal it, including efforts to defund Planned Parenthood,” she said. “Men in blue suits and red ties have no place telling women what they can and should do when it comes to their own health.”

Planned Parenthood Employees Admit Name ‘Deceiving’ Since They Specialize in Abortion

 There’s been another undercover sting on Planned Parenthood, this time by the pro-life group Live Action which wanted to find out if a woman could get prenatal care at any one of PP's clinics. PP President Cecile Richards and others often claim that prenatal care is one of the essential services their organization provides to women. But after watching the above video, that doesn’t appear correct at all.



From the video’s description:

    Live Action contacted all 41 Planned Parenthood affiliates where undercover recording is permitted by state law, and only 5 facilities out of 97 said they provided prenatal care.

“Planned Parenthood offers abortions, so they don’t offer prenatal care,” one PP employee in Tempe, Arizona said.

But this is how PP CEO Lori Lamerand sold it at a rally in 2011:

    “Prenatal care: that is what we want to focus on. That is what is so vital.”

On countless occasions, Richards has said similar things: “Prenatal care: these are the kinds of services that folks depend on Planned Parenthood for.”

As Live Action notes, “prenatal care” is “health care that a pregnant woman receives for herself and her child as she prepares for birth.”

But time and again, that service was not an option when the Live Action actor phoned clinics.

“We’re not a prenatal care provider,” said a Fort Collins, Colorado worker.

“No Planned Parenthood does prenatal care, hon,” said an employee in Albany, New York.

A clinic operator in Farmington, New Mexico told the woman over the phone, “We don’t offer prenatal care at Planned Parenthood… We specialize in abortions. You know, that’s what our ultrasounds are for, to see how far along the, um, patient is.”

One incredibly honest employee in Merrillville, Indiana slipped from the script and said:

    “No, we don’t do prenatal services. I mean, it’s called Planned Parenthood — I know it’s kind of deceiving.”

Another caught on video in Boise, Idaho said the same thing:

    “We do not [have OB/GYNs here.] [laughs] Which is a deceptive name, right?”

While the woman was on hold at a Virginia Beach, Virginia clinic, the pre-recorded message promised PP would “take care of all your reproductive health needs” including “prenatal care.” But once a live operator got on the phone, the caller was told they don’t offer that service “at the moment.”

Several times, PP employees suggested going to other (actual) medical centers for prenatal services. Most of the time, the woman seeking care for herself and her child was given only one option at Planned Parenthood: abortion.

Let’s see how quick Richards or Nancy Pelosi says this video was deceptively edited. Let’s just say they know a lot about deception.

U.S. House votes to permanently ban taxpayer funding of abortion

The U.S. House of Representatives voted 238 to 183 today to permanently ban taxpayer funding of abortion.

The No Taxpayer Funding of Abortion Act (HR 7), introduced by Rep. Chris Smith, R-NJ, makes permanent the so-called Hyde Amendment permanent. Thus far the amendment, which prohibits federal money from being used to fund abortions through Medicaid, has been subject to annual renewal.

The Charlotte Lozier Institute estimates the Hyde Amendment has saved over two million lives since it was enacted in 1976.

A January 2017 Marist poll revealed 61% of Americans don’t support using tax dollars to pay for abortions.

The No Taxpayer Funding of Abortion Act also removes abortion funding from Obamacare while legislators consider replacements for Obama's signature healthcare law.

The White House released a statement saying, "the Administration strongly supports H.R. 7...if the President were presented with H.R. 7 in its present form, he would sign the bill."

Are States One Step Closer to De-Funding Planned Parenthood?

A newly passed resolution allows states to starve Planned Parenthood of taxpayer dollars. Congresswoman Diane Black, R - Tenn., spearheaded H.J.R. 43, essentially overturning the Obama Administrations's order that forced sates to give Title X funding to abortion giants like Planned Parenthood. Now, states have the freedom to cut abortion funding without fear of pressure from the government.....

Bush Judge Rules Texas ‘Without Cause’ to Cut Planned Parenthood From Medicaid Program

Seems that all Judges appointed by a Bush seem to act this way  Huh

A federal judge appointed to the bench by then-President George H.W. Bush has issued a final ruling declaring that the state of Texas may not cut the abortion and contraception giant Planned Parenthood from the state’s Medicaid program.

U.S. District Judge Sam Sparks, who also ruled last month that the state could not require abortion facilities to bury or cremate babies instead of throwing them out with medical waste trash or grinding their bodies into the sewer system, belittled Texas’ reasoning for defunding Planned Parenthood as being more like from the pages of a fictional novel.

“A secretly recorded video, fake names, a grand jury indictment, congressional investigations—these are the building blocks of a best-selling novel rather than a case concerning the interplay of federal and state authority through the Medicaid program,” Sparks wrote. “Yet, rather than a villain plotting to take over the world, the subject of this case is the State of Texas’s efforts to expel a group of health care providers from a social health care program for families and individuals with limited resources.”

As previously reported, the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) sent a letter to Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast in October 2015, providing the entity with a notice of termination.

“[T]here is reliable information indicating a pattern of illegal billing practices by Planned Parenthood affiliates, including you, across the state,” the letter read. “Our prima facie case of fraud is supported by related cases involving fraudulent practices identified by whistleblowers from inside the Texas Planned Parenthood network.”

It pointed to two federal lawsuits that had been settled for millions after whistleblowers came forward about false Medicaid claims that had been filed.

Without specifically mentioning the Center for Medical Progress, the Commission also referenced undercover video footage showing representatives from a Texas Planned Parenthood facility discussing its willingness to alter abortion procedures to remove deceased children whole.

“The videos indicate that you follow a policy of agreeing to procure fetal tissue even if it means altering the timing or method of an abortion. These practices violate accepted medical standards, as reflected in federal law, and are Medicaid program violations that justify termination,” it said.

As previously reported, a video released in August 2015 by the Center for Medical Progress captured Melissa Farrell, director of research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, discussing with undercover investigators the “diversification of the revenue stream” over dinner, along with a visit to the organization’s pathology lab, where workers sorted through the remains of aborted babies.

“If we alter our process and we are able to obtain intact fetal cadavers, then we can make it part of the budget, that any dissections are this, and splitting the specimens into different shipments is this,” she explained. “I mean, it’s all just a matter of line items.”

Planned Parenthood sued the HHSC in November 2015 in an effort to retain its participation in the Medicaid program, asserting that the termination was illegal, but the Commission did not yet cancel the contract as originally planned.

In December 2016, the state moved forward, issuing a final notice on Dec. 20 that Planned Parenthood would be defunded in 30 days, resulting in the organization again filing for an injunction.

Last month, Judge Sparks issued a temporary injunction against Texas’ intentions. Planned Parenthood had asserted in its request to enjoin the state that some women would lack “few or no adequate alternative providers” if the Medicaid funding is cut. There are 34 Planned Parenthood locations in the state.

Jami Snyder, associate commissioner for Medicaid, told the court during the hearing that the state has plenty of health care providers that women can utilize other than Planned Parenthood.

On Tuesday, Sparks issued a permanent injunction against HHSC, opining that Texas was without justification to cut the abortion giant from the state’s Medicaid program.

“After reviewing the evidence currently in the record, the Court finds the Inspector General, and thus [the Texas Health and Human Services Commission], likely acted to disenroll qualified health care providers from Medicaid without cause,” he wrote. “Such action would deprive Medicaid patients of their statutory right to obtain health care from their chosen qualified provider.”

Planned Parenthood cheered the ruling, with Planned Parenthood Greater Texas CEO Ken Lambrecht remarking in a press release, “We went to court to protect our patients and to state clearly and simply that Texans, not politicians, should decide where to receive their health care.”

But Attorney General Ken Paxton vowed to appeal, expressing dismay that “willingness to violate state and federal law on manipulating abortion procedures and profiting from the sale of fetal tissue, making false statements to law enforcement, and misleading multiple courts were insufficient grounds for Texas to exclude Planned Parenthood from participating in the state’s Medicaid program.”

“Today’s decision is disappointing and flies in the face of basic human decency,” Paxton said. “The raw, unedited footage from undercover videos exposed a brazen willingness by Planned Parenthood officials to traffic in fetal body parts, as well as manipulate the timing and method of an abortion.”

(View unedited footage below.)

“Even the remains of the most vicious criminals are treated with respect. But the children who never had a chance at life become so-called medical waste or, alternatively, a commodity to be bartered for,” he continued. “No taxpayer in Texas should have to subsidize this repugnant and illegal conduct. We should never lose sight of the fact that, as long as abortion is legal in the United States, the potential for these types of horrors will continue.”

The organization had heretofore received $3.1 million in Medicaid reimbursement annually.

Trump signs resolution allowing U.S. states to block family planning funds

President Donald Trump on Thursday signed a resolution that will allow U.S. states to restrict how federal funds for contraception and reproductive health are spent, a move cheered by anti-abortion campaigners. “This is a major pro-life victory,” said…Speaker Paul Ryan, adding that a regulation enacted under Democratic former President Barack Obama had forced states to fund Planned Parenthood, a national non-profit that provides contraception, health screenings, and abortions.

Judge Declines to Dismiss Charges Against Pro-Life Investigators Who Recorded Undercover Planned Parenthood Videos

 A superior court judge in California has declined to dismiss charges against two pro-life investigators who recorded their undercover conversations with Planned Parenthood representatives and released them to the general public to expose the company’s abortion practices.

As previously reported, in June, San Francisco County Superior Court Judge Christopher Hite initially agreed to dismiss the 14 felony counts of recording confidential conversations against David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt, stating that they lacked specificity. However, he also gave California Attorney General Xavier Becerra permission to amend his complaint, and to enumerate exactly which videos are at issue.

On June 30, Becerra refiled the charges, and Daleiden and Merritt requested that they be dismissed. On Thursday, Hite denied the motion. However, he will allow the pro-lifers to present affirmative defenses during an upcoming probable cause hearing. The two are also facing one count of conspiracy to invade privacy.

Daleiden entered a not guilty plea following the decision, while Merritt postponed a plea at this time. Her arraignment is scheduled for October.

“An absolute defense to that law is that you can record anything you want in a public place, and all of these recordings were made in extremely public places: the St Francis Hotel, restaurants, hallways, meetings rooms of the hotel,” Daleiden’s defense attorney, former Los Angeles District Attorney Brent Ferreira, said at a press conference following the hearing. “There’s no case here.”

“Our former attorney general, now Senator Kamala Harris, and current Attorney General Xavier Becerra have and are advancing an ill-motivated, improperly-motivated, politically-motivated criminal prosecution against someone who was doing nothing but expose crime as he is entitled to do in this country as long as the First Amendment prevails,” also said co-defense attorney Steve Cooley.

“We will prevail. It will take time,” Ferreira declared. “We have an innocent client and we will prevail.”

As previously reported, State Attorney General Becerra filed the charges against Daleiden and Merritt in March in asserting that they had wrongfully recorded the Planned Parenthood representatives without their consent.

“The right to privacy is a cornerstone of California’s Constitution, and a right that is foundational in a free democratic society,” Becerra said, according to the LA Times. “[We] will not tolerate the criminal recording of confidential conversations.”

But the Center for Medical Progress believes that the charges are politically motivated and violative of the pro-lifers’ First Amendment rights—that is, their freedom to conduct investigative journalism.

“What Sandra and I both did is no different from what local news sources and local news outlets do every single day here in the state of California when they go undercover and publish undercover hidden camera news stories,” Daleiden said during Thursday’s press conference.

“The only difference is that we went after and we recorded and we exposed the sacred cows of the California political establishment: Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Federation and their allies and proxies in the abortion industry—the political backers of the organs of power in the state of California,” he stated.

He said that he finds it interesting that his court hearings are often attended by members of Planned Parenthood.

“Ultimately, this isn’t about me, this isn’t about Sandra, this isn’t about the undercover investigators. This is about the videos, … half of which still have never seen the light of day, and yet the attorney general purports to use them to prosecute me and Sandra even though the public can’t see the evidence and can’t see the videos,” he said.

“But Planned Parenthood knows they are one vote away in the U.S. Senate from losing half a billion a year in taxpayer subsidies a year and from seeing their abortion empire crumble. … They are one awful sting video away from that vote happening.”

As previously reported, Planned Parenthood had claimed following the release of Daleiden’s videos, which were first posted online in 2015, that the footage had been deceptively edited, but Daleiden had also publicly released the hours-long recordings in their entirety in addition to his concise video highlights. All the videos may be viewed in their entirety on the Center for Medical Progress YouTube page.

The Feds Are Investigating Allegations That Planned Parenthood Has Been Selling Baby Body Parts For Profit
November 14, 2017 by Michael Snyder

Is Planned Parenthood finally going to be held accountable for their crimes against humanity?  Pro-life activists all over the nation are absolutely thrilled by reports about a potential FBI investigation of Planned Parenthood.  For the past several years, undercover video after undercover video has exposed what is going on deep inside Planned Parenthood clinics, but federal law enforcement authorities never took any action.  Of course we probably should not have expected any justice during the Obama years, but many were hoping that things would change under Trump, and that now appears to be happening.
