Planned Parenthood Sues Pro-life Undercover Video Group

Planned Parenthood Sues Pro-life Undercover Video Group

“Game on.” – Undercover Videographer

Thursday, Planned Parenthood filed suit against pro-life undercover video makers, Center for Medical Progress or CMP. CMP released a series of undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood doctors and managers from around the country haggling over the price of aborted baby parts.

Reuter’s reports:

The lawsuit filed in federal court in San Francisco against anti-abortion group the Center for Medical Progress alleges conspiracy and fraud among other violations in connection with the recordings.

The videos, which were released in July, sparked widespread controversy by purporting to show Planned Parenthood officials trying to negotiate prices for aborted fetal tissue.

Under federal law, donated human fetal tissue may be used for research, but profiting from its sale is prohibited.

“This case is about a network of anti-abortion extremists and the laws they broke in order to spread lies and harm Planned Parenthood,” Dawn Laguens, vice president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, said on a conference call.

No Planned Parenthood staff were involved in any wrongdoing, Laguens said, and the organization has not profited from its tissue donation programs.

“This entire smear campaign is a fraud built on illegal acts and a web of lies,” she said.

The Center for Medical Progress made the following statement:

Planned Parenthood is under investigation by the United States Congress and multiple law enforcement agencies, while their business is drying up and the public is turning against their barbaric abortion for baby parts trade. Now they are filing a frivolous lawsuit in retaliation for CMP’s First Amendment investigative journalism that has done nothing more than tell the truth about Planned Parenthood’s lawless operations. This last-ditch move of desperation is going to expose all of the sordid dealings of the California Planned Parenthood affiliates to the light of the legal system and the public will see them for the corrupt abortion and baby body parts profiteers that they really are.

In an email to Buzzfeed, David Daleiden of the CMP said, “Game on. I look forward to taking the depositions of all the Planned Parenthood CEOs who profited off of their business relationship with StemExpress.”

In December, and at the urging of Sen. Paul, Health and Human Services opened an investigation into Planned Parenthood’s use and sale of baby parts.

Discovery should be interesting…

First, the abortion industry resumes abortion rites (because dissociation of risk is the opiate of the masses, and source of democratic leverage) under a quasi-religious faith pulled out of a penumbra. Now that Planned Parenthood et al have been revealed to engage in clinical cannibalism (because people want to live forever, at any cost), the pro-choice cult is feverishly defending their First Amendment right to practice the rites of their peculiar faith.

Meanwhile, the anti-native contingent are busy exploiting the progress of Dodo Dynasties in liberal societies to replace evolutionary dead ends with alien populations.

There is a clear conflict of interest between the various pro-choice special interests and both human and civil rights of ordinary men and women, and Posterity too.

Is this coming about now because they think they’ve had enough time to sufficiently flush the evidence and line up their stories?

MSM covers the lawsuit, spikes the result. Bet on it.

It’s a San Francisco court. Not even the Warriors have a home court advantage like that.

Since the folks at PP know that the videos were NOT lies, it seems unlikely that they intend for this to actually go to court.

That means this is nothing but an attempt at intimidation (okay, and something to use for fund raising).

They’re alleging conspiracy and fraud? Help me out here counselors, but shouldn’t they be alleging slander/libel/defamation? Oh wait, then they’d have to prove the allegations were false, right?

Actually the name “Planned Parenthood” is a misnomer. Instead of going there to plan for parenthood, mothers go there to prevent parenthood by having abortionists kill their tiny little babies. Naturally there are no funerals held for the precious little ones. Rather they incinerate their bodies and take the remains to the landfill. That’s why on resurrection morning there will be more people rise from the landfills across the country than most of cemeteries.
