Judge Dismisses Almost All Charges Against Activists in Planned Parenthood Video Case

The activist journalists from the Center for Medical Progress, Sandra Merritt and David Daleiden, just recieved fantastic news.

Abortion provider Planned Parenthood’s shameful efforts to use the courts to silence them have failed. Facing 15 charges for the undercover video exposing how evil and illegal Planned Parenthood’s selling of fetal tissue is, 14 of the charges were dropped.

This is fantastic news:

In a huge victory, a California court today dismissed almost all of the criminal charges abortion activists filed against the pro-life advocates who recorded undercover videos exposing Planned Parenthood selling the body parts from aborted babies.

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra filed 15 felony charges against both David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt. Becerra is a longtime abortion advocate with financial connections to the Planned Parenthood abortion company that the two pro-life Advocates exposed in the videos for selling body parts such as fetal brains and livers.

At the time, pro-life advocates said Becerra’s 15 felony charges were bogus charges meant to belittle the expose’ campaign and to cast aspersions on Daleiden and the organization behind the videos. They said the attempt was about drawing attention away from Planned Parenthood’s sales of aborted baby parts.

The San Francisco Superior Court on Wednesday dismissed 14 of 15 criminal counts but the pair are still charged with one count of conspiracy to invade privacy. However the court dismissed the charges with leave to amend — meaning Becerra could re-file the charges with additional supposed evidence against the pair.

Here is just some of the shameful activities the Center for Medical Progress has exposed from behind closed doors at Planned Parenthood:

Shamefully, the California Attorney General Xavier Becerra received massive campaign donations from NARAL and Planned Parenthood when he served as a Congressman. This is a huge conflict of interest. These two abortion groups are suing Center for Medical Progress in civil court, too.

God bless CMP for standing up for unborn babies. Law enforcement should be more interested in Planned Parenthood’s illegal activity than a group that exposed it.
