Today, a federal jury in San Francisco ruled that citizen journalist David Daleiden caused substantial harm to Planned Parenthood by infiltrating abortion industry conferences to secretly tape abortion doctors and staff.
"Daleiden, who heads the Center for Medical Progress, and his co-defendant Sandra Merritt, posed as human tissue procurers for a fake company called BioMax as part of a hidden-camera investigation into the organization."
They were working under the premise that Planned Parenthood was procuring baby body parts for profit, which is illegal in America, and that some babies were born alive during the abortion procedure.
Planned Parenthood lawyer following the verdict stated, "The jury has spoken loud and clear. Those who violate the law in an effort to limit access to reproductive rights and health care will be held accountable. It has been our firm’s great honor to represent Planned Parenthood in this important matter, and to help protect the rights, safety and security of Planned Parenthood and its dedicated doctors and staff in the face of an egregious and unlawful attack."
