Life Legal in Federal Court to Fight for David Daleiden 


Life Legal’s lead attorney Katie Short is back in federal court today  fighting for David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress. Shortly after David released the first of a series of videos exposing the horrific truth about the trade in fetal body parts, he was sued by the National Abortion Federation (NAF). In their complaint, NAF argues that David obtained the videos by sneaking into “top secret” meetings. What they failed to state is that they invited David and his company BioMax to participate in their annual meeting and provided unsolicited information about the meeting’s location and agenda.

NAF was thrilled at the prospect of abortionists’ receiving direct payment for baby body parts.

The abortion lobby wants nothing more than to bury the Planned Parenthood videos in a vault, away from the public view. “For decades, Planned Parenthood has tried to sanitize its role in the death and dismemberment of millions of babies,” said Life Legal Executive Director Alexandra Snyder. “During much of that time, too many Americans bought the line that the organization is somehow beneficial, or at least necessary. But that is over. An organization that negotiates for the lives of human beings in terms of the value of their harvested parts is not good. Not for babies. And not for women.”

David’s videos and related information about the illicit practices of the nation’s largest abortion provider serve an important public interest. Planned Parenthood operates nearly 700 clinics across the U.S. and almost half of its annual revenue comes from tax dollars. Americans have a right to know what kind of organization is spending their hard-earned money.
