As James O’Keefe, Edward Snowden and now sadly David Daleiden and Sandra Merrit have learned, it takes great courage to be a government whistle-blower in a country as corrupt as America. You can expect reprisals. Daleiden and Merrit of the Center for Medical Progress were indicted today by Harris County, TX, for their brilliant sting operation for the billion dollar government baby killing factory.
Seems the left doesn’t want women to know what actually happens when they undergo an abortion. Killing babies, selling baby parts…it’s enough to make a moral person vomit. But this is a billion dollar enterprise. There is no way the baby killing millers of PP were going to go silently into the immoral abyss.
So the grand jury of Houston, instead of indicting an actual criminal enterprise turns around and indicts the filmmakers. You know, shoot the messenger kind of stuff.
The grand jury in Harris County indicted David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt on a felony charge of tampering with a governmental record. Daleiden was also indicted on a misdemeanor charge of “prohibition of the purchase and sale of human organs,” Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson said in a statement.
The grand jury declined to indict anyone from Planned Parenthood of the Gulf Coast — the initial target of the investigation. Planned Parenthood officials said violence against clinics rose dramatically as the videos were released in mid-2015.
Not deterred CMP released a statement of their own:
The Center for Medical Progress uses the same undercover techniques that investigative journalists have used for decades in exercising our First Amendment rights to freedom of speech and of the press, and follows all applicable laws. We respect the processes of the Harris County District Attorney, and note that buying fetal tissue requires a seller as well. Planned Parenthood still cannot deny the admissions from their leadership about fetal organ sales captured on video for all the world to see.
I guess that discovery will be quite interesting. They can determine yet again that the videos were not edited and that the full, undoctored, video has been available for all to see.
Also, interesting that one of the DA’s, Lauren Reeder, one of the prosecutors in the Harris County district attorney’s office, is a member of the board of directors for the Planned Parenthood affiliate targeted by Daleiden.
We (re)learned two things today:
- Whistle-blowers face grave repercussions against the U.S. government.
- Planned Parenthood is an evil, immoral enterprise. Abortion is a cash cow. Liberal’s aren’t ready to give up their right to kill and mutilate babies any time soon.
The United States government is corrupt but I believe this will be a fine honed nail in the eventual coffin of abortion on demand in this country. We’ll see. This is a story I’ll be following with interest.
