I’m sure my readers remember only too well the undercover videos of Planned Parenthood employees talking about the selling of fetal body parts. California authorities were so desperate to keep the public from knowing about it that the California Attorney General filed 15 felony charges against David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt of the Center for Medical Progress for illegally recording private conversations (a court threw out most of them, but the state refiled.) You’d think the media would cover the story and side with the reporters, since it was basically an attempt to make undercover reporting a felony; but protecting America’s biggest abortion chain is apparently more important than protecting the rights of journalists.
Well, the pre-trial hearings have finally begun – not that you would know, since there’s practically a media blackout on coverage (as blogger Jim Treacher of PJ Media famously observed, “Modern journalism is all about deciding which facts the public shouldn’t know because they might reflect badly on Democrats.”) A Google News search turned up nothing but reports from a few pro-life sites and one laughably biased screed posing as a news story from a pro-abortion site.
When you hear the testimony, you’ll understand why pro-abortion California liberals were so panicked that they were willing to railroad reporters into prison and impose media blackouts to discredit the reporters and keep you from seeing their videos.
I warn you, the story at the link contains disturbing and grisly details about this process, details that strongly suggest babies were born alive and then had their organs cut out of them or were born alive in illegal partial-birth abortions, either of which should constitute a violent crime that is not protected by confidentiality laws. It’s basically an admission that the horrors we were told were false and slanderous are actually business as usual. There is also evidence that the state’s witnesses are deviating from facts already on the record or making claims of amnesia when put under oath.
This is a story in which Planned Parenthood doesn’t have morality on its side, or the law or the truth – all they have is the backing of the state and the media. Their hope is that state power can be abused to silence reporters and that partisan media will prevent you from knowing about it.
I urge you to read this story, share it with everyone you know, and continue following the case on LifeSiteNews or other conservative news outlets that will actually tell you what’s happening. The Washington Post piously proclaims that “Democracy dies in darkness.” Well, so do babies at Planned Parenthood clinics, so let’s not let reporters be thrown in prison just for turning on the lights.
