DA drops charges against pro-life duo who exposed Planned Parenthood's alleged commerce in baby parts
The pro-life activists behind the undercover videos into Planned Parenthood’s alleged fetal body parts trafficking operation have been cleared of all charges brought forward in the wake of the investigation.This case looked like a miscarriage of justice from the beginning. It does indicate how committed some people are to the abortion industry.
Prosecutors on Tuesday dropped the final indictment against David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt, whose Center for Medical Progress video series prompted a congressional and several state-level investigations into the nation’s largest abortion provider.
The charge, a second-degree felony for tampering with a governmental record, stemmed from the use of a fake ID in order to gain access to a Houston-area Planned Parenthood clinic.
In a joint statement, Mr. Daleiden and Ms. Merritt called the charges “bogus” and “politically motivated,” accusing the Harris County District Attorney’s office of carrying water for Planned Parenthood.
