David Daleiden has been hit with yet another lawsuit stemming from his videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s illegal sale of baby body parts. The most recent lawsuit was filed by employees of Planned Parenthood and other abortion facilities, who sold fetal tissue, and by employees of the University of Washington (UW) and other laboratories, who purchased the parts of aborted babies. The University of Washington is named, along with Daleiden, as a defendant in the suit.
After learning that the University of Washington had purchased fetal body parts from Planned Parenthood, David submitted a public records request seeking information about the transactions, including invoices and purchase orders, from the University. The request was made in February of this year.
Inexplicably, UW waited a full five months to notify Planned Parenthood and the other parties that the records would be released this week. Planned Parenthood immediately filed the class action lawsuit to prevent Daleiden from receiving the information, citing, among other things, Planned Parenthood’s constitutionally protected “right to associate” with buyers of fetal body parts.
“This is just the latest desperate attempt by Planned Parenthood to bury information about its role in the illegal trafficking of aborted babies,” said Life Legal Executive Director Alexandra Snyder. “Planned Parenthood is once again using its immense resources—largely supplied by American taxpayers—to keep the truth hidden from the public.”
Life Legal is defending David in three other lawsuits brought by Planned Parenthood and its fetal parts trafficking partners. Read more about those cases here.
