NAPA, CA. April 6, 2016–California Attorney General Kamala Harris has obtained a warrant to search and seize David Daleiden’s property in retaliation against his investigation into Planned Parenthood’s trade in fetal body parts. Harris threatened to pursue Daleiden after the first undercover video was released last July. She is now making good on her threat. Yesterday, Department of Justice agents searched David’s home and took away many of his personal belongings.
The timing of the warrant appears suspect, as only days ago LA Times reporter Robin Abcarian taunted Harris by asking “What’s taking California so long?” to dispense “swift poetic justice” to David Daleiden and his Center for Medical Progress.
Kamala Harris is a staunch supporter of Planned Parenthood and received campaign donations from five separate Planned Parenthood affiliates during the last election cycle. These affiliates are the beneficiaries of millions of dollars in state and federal funds annually—a portion of which is funneled into political campaigns so the billion-dollar abortion cartel can call in favors as needed.
In a series of undercover videos, David Daleiden exposes Planned Parenthood officials skirting or violating federal laws governing fetal tissue harvesting. The CEO of California-based StemExpress is shown discussing “making it financially beneficial” for abortion providers to sell aborted babies to fetal tissue brokers. StemExpress is currently resisting subpoenas from Congress seeking information related to purchasing the bodies of intact and dismembered human fetuses from Planned Parenthood.
“California’s Attorney General has decided that her loyalty to Planned Parenthood requires her to turn a blind eye to the organization’s criminal activities,” notes Life Legal Defense Foundation Executive Director Alexandra Snyder. “Instead, she has launched an inquisition into David Daleiden, starting with the seizure of his private property and papers.”
In contrast, when an undercover investigation of a meat-packing plant revealed potential violations of the law, Kamala Harris defended legislation to stop the barbaric treatment of animals. At no time did the Attorney General’s office call for an investigation into the undercover journalist who exposed the illegal activity.
Life Legal represents David Daleiden in three civil cases filed against him by StemExpress, the National Abortion Federation, and Planned Parenthood.
