Founding Father John Adams said, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” Today, we are seeing Adam’s fears borne out in every institution as both morality and the Constitution are ignored.
Rather than being honored as heroes, investigative journalists David Dalieden and Sandra Merritt are being prosecuted by the State of California and sued in a civil trial for uncovering and exposing the clandestine harvesting and peddling of the parts of aborted babies.
This persecution of Daleiden and Merritt via Planned Parenthood (PP) vs Center for Medical Progress is not only evil but it is a mockery of the justice system. Daleiden and Merritt used filmed conversations with Planned Parenthood medical doctors talking openly about the baby parts industry.
PP claims the two video recordings of conversations were illegal being private and not public while the journalists conducted the interviews in public. Pro-life attorneys are also arguing that PP is in the baby body parts business which federal law prohibits.
This civil case is being heard by hard left, pro-abortion and pro-PP Justice Robert Orrick III in San Francisco. Anti-abortion activists noted previously that the judge’s wife, Caroline Farrow Orrick, posted Facebook messages in 2015 and 2016 supporting Planned Parenthood and citing an article that attacked Daleiden’s group as a “sham organization run by extremists.” The judge did not disavow his wife’s comments, and members of the public would assume that he shares her views, Daleiden and his group argued.
Former California Attorney General (AG) Kamala Harris who received campaign contributions from PP and current AG Xavier Becerra have been going after Daleiden and Merritt criminally.
Orrick had refused to allow the damaging videos to be shown before the jury. On October 11, 2019, PP abortionist Leslie Drummond-Hay claimed under oath that nobody could hear her conversation with David Daleiden (posing as a baby body parts buyer) and that he brought up the matter of money. The defendants’ attorneys argued that the jury needed to see and hear for themselves whether the interview was public or private and what was said by whom.
Over numerous, aggressive objections from PP's lawyers, the judge finally agreed that the video could be played. As the 4 ½ minute video was watched the mood in the courtroom turned dark and somber.
The result was a disgusted jury that may now understand who PP is, what it does, and that these supposedly "confidential" conversations were recorded in the presence of numerous strangers and therefore public and legal.
Abortionist Drummond then admitted that others could hear her and the journalist and that she had been first to bring up the topic of money. Abortionist Deborah Nucatola spoke freely with every word captured on video.
Nucatola describes killing the baby but saving the parts, “So then you’re just kind of cognizant of where you put your graspers. You try to intentionally go above and below the thorax so that, you know, we’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver . . . so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m going to basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”
“Because infant brains are in demand, Nucatola told Sandra and her associate David that Planned Parenthood abortionists alter their surgical technique to ensure the brain comes out ‘intact.’”
“They flip the baby in the womb, she said, so the head—the largest part of babies—comes out last, after the mother is more fully dilated.” Here’s how Nucatola put it. “Planned Parenthood abortionists change the presentation (of the baby in the womb) so that (the baby) is not vertex (head first), because when it's a vertex presentation, you never have enough dilation ... to deliver an intact calvarium (brains).”
Changing abortion procedures to collect “fetal tissue” is a violation of federal law.
PP Southwest's Associate Medical Director Dr. Thomas Moran was caught lying under oath as claims of abortionists "fearing for their safety" fell apart in the San Francisco Federal Courtroom. While claiming to be fearful that he would be “outed” by the video exposure defense attorney’s showed Moran was a bold advocate for abortion by signing on-line petitions, publishing an abortion workbook and advocating for abortion. Moran admitted his folly.
Mary Gatter, "medical director" for PP abortion centers in Los Angeles and Pasadena was questioned by a pro-life attorney as to what she said on the video. Under cross-examination, she admitted saying "I wanted a Lamborghini" and agreed it was in the context of discussing the price she would be paid for "fetal parts."
The trial continues as the barbaric nature of PP, its political backers and saboteur jurist are exposed.
