California Charges Undercover Video Makers With 15 Felonies for Exposing Planned Parenthood’s Crimes

According to Federal Statute 42 U.S. Code § 289g–2  it is against the law to sell human fetal tissue. The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) exposed that abortion-mill Planned Parenthood was selling the parts of recently aborted babies. But in California, exposing illegal activities by Planned Parenthood is a crime.

The California Attorney General’s office delivered an indictment for 15 felonies against the two pro-life reporters who made the undercover videos exposing Planned Parenthood sales of the parts of recently aborted babies. The two – David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt – are members of the pro-life CMP.

The issue of Planned Parenthood’s sale of baby parts for profit became a major issue this past summer when the pro-life CMP released a series of videos revealing executives of  Planned Parenthood, the country’s largest abortion mill discussing and negotiating with prospective buyers (who were really Daleiden and/or Merritt ). Ever since, pro-abortion advocates have been defending Planned Parenthood with claims that the videos were edited.
