Of course, the two people responsible for shining a light on the evil practice of procuring baby parts for money are found guilty. Americans have largely forgotten these gruesome videos already. The videos that shocked and horrified even the most pro-abortion advocates. Planned Parenthood was well represented in these undercover videos with evil, heartless people who would gladly sell pieces of an almost fully developed baby, if it meant keeping the abortion mill humming…
A Harris County grand jury investigating allegations that a Planned Parenthood clinic in Houston illegally sold the tissue of aborted fetuses has cleared the organization of wrongdoing and instead indicted two anti-abortion activists behind the undercover videos that sparked the probe.
Secret videographers David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt were both indicted on charges of tampering with a governmental record, a second-degree felony that carries a punishment of up to 20 years in prison. Daleiden received an additional misdemeanor indictment under the law prohibiting the purchase and sale of human organs.
Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson announced the surprising indictments Monday after a two-month investigation.
Planned Parenthood videos testify to ugly truth:
As Americans marked the anniversary of the antiquated, abortion-on-demand Roe v. Wade decision last Friday, they did so with newfound awareness of this most-common surgical procedure’s brutality to the baby fetus and the commodification of human life. The undercover videos of top-level Planned Parenthood executives and medical directors callously negotiating both the harvesting techniques and the exchange of money for aborted body parts have forever banished from the public discourse Planned Parenthood’s out-of-sight, out-of-mind mantra on its industrial-scale abortion business.
Six months after these revelations broke, Planned Parenthood still cannot deny that the shocking and indicting words on the videos were spoken by its own senior level leadership. Not a single Planned Parenthood executive caught on camera has come forward to deny that it is her voice, image or statements being depicted: Planned Parenthood’s senior director of medical services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, advises how doctors know “I’m not gonna crush that part” when it is harvested for sale at Planned Parenthood affiliates where “if they can do a little better than break even” are “happy to do that.” Then-President of Planned Parenthood’s medical director council, Dr. Mary Gatter, suggests “a less crunchy technique to get more whole specimens” and laughing, “I want a Lamborghini.” It is telling that in Planned Parenthood’s new anti-First Amendment lawsuit, it is suing me for everything but defamation.
The videos show Planned Parenthood’s senior leadership partaking in a widespread and organized violation of state and federal laws forbidding partial-birth abortions and profiteering from the sale of fetal organs and tissues, which is why multiple state and federal investigations, including a select committee in Congress, continue to investigate Planned Parenthood’s abortion practice and financial interests in harvesting body parts. Contrary to the liberal shibboleth that the videos were “edited” (by which they mean to insinuate, “doctored”), the Center for Medical Progress has been far more transparent than any major news network in making the unedited conversations available to the public, and forensic analysis verifies their utility as evidence.
“We were called upon to investigate allegations of criminal conduct by Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast,” said Anderson, a Republican. “As I stated at the outset of this investigation, we must go where the evidence leads us. All the evidence uncovered in the course of this investigation was presented to the grand jury. I respect their decision on this difficult case.”
The probe began after the Center for Medical Progress, an anti-abortion group run by Daleiden, released footage of the Houston clinic as part of a series of videos showing Planned Parenthood officials casually discussing the methods and costs of preserving fetal tissue for scientific research. That prompted allegations that the organization was profiting off of tissue — an allegation that was never proven — and sparked calls for an investigation from Gov. Greg Abbott, Attorney General Ken Paxton and others.
