Another Lawsuit Seeking to Hide Evidence of Abortionists’ Crimes

San Francisco, CA — In an effort to silence the truth about their illegal selling of baby body parts for profit, Planned Parenthood Federation of America and several California Planned Parenthood affiliates have filed a lawsuit naming Troy Newman, David Daleiden, the Center for Medical Progress, and several others as defendants.

This lawsuit is similar to one filed last August by the National Abortion Federation (NAF) in an attempt to prevent the public, prosecutors, legislators, and other government officials from gaining access to evidence of abortion providers admitting to various criminal acts. Among many other inaccuracies and falsehoods in the lawsuit is the defamatory claim that Operation Rescue and Troy support and incite violence against abortion clinics and providers, despite the fact that both have stated – on numerous occasions – that only the government has the moral authority to take human life, and even the government may only do so after due process has been afforded in accordance with law.

The PPFA lawsuit is another attempt to deprive the First Amendment rights of those who want to expose the illegal acts and other wrongs of the abortion industry to the public. Troy plans to fight this lawsuit with the same vigor as he is fighting the similar NAF suit.

“Planned Parenthood lawsuits will not make me quit! I have read too many autopsy reports of women they have murdered, I have held the remains of babies they butchered, I have read the lies they spew in depositions, and I have witnessed their gruesome crimes against humanity. Nothing short of my life will stop me from the relentless pursuit of the truth to expose the barbaric bloodshed of Planned Parenthood. I will not stop, I will not relent. May God empower me to fight this treachery of human life to my last breath.” — Troy Newman, President, Operation Rescue

    If what PP said was true, they would’ve filed the suit long before. What PP is doing right now proves that they have been lying and that The Center For Medical Progress was telling the truth.

    The people from Planned Parenthood who talked with David Daleiden weren’t sitting in a detective’s office being under suspicion of committing some crime. They offered their conversation with Daleiden of their own free will. If their conversation wasn’t truthful, then they have to be asked what they weren’t being truthful about. If they were being truthful and forthright, then why are they worried, and why are they filing lawsuits against David Daleiden and CMP?

    The fact that they didn’t know they were being tape recorded and are now suing CMP shows me that they may have only been remotely concerned about a sting operation capturing them discussing illegal procedures and activities. It appears that they knew the judicial system had their backs and would bend the rules to keep their activities from being shut down. Judge William H. Orrick, III granted an injunction against David Daleiden and CMP from showing the tapes just hours after the order was requested by the National Abortion Federation.

    Orrick was nominated to his position by hardline abortion supporter President Barack Obama. He was also a major donor to and bundler for President Obama’s presidential campaign. He raised at least $200,000 for Obama and donated $30,800 to committees supporting him, according to Public Citizen.
