    Center for Medical Progress ^ | 17 December, 2016 | David Daleiden
    The Senate Judiciary Committee sent a letter today to the FBI and the Department of Justice formally referring for criminal prosecution four of the biggest Planned Parenthood affiliates, Planned Parenthood Federation of America, and three of their closest business partners in the harvesting and sale of aborted baby body parts. The Senate Judiciary Committee’s report confirms that Planned Parenthood and companies like StemExpress partnered in a years-long criminal conspiracy to sell the body parts of aborted children for profit. When Planned Parenthood national became aware that their affiliates were operating their baby body part programs in violation of Planned Parenthood’s...
  • Planned Parenthood kept aborted babies alive to harvest organs, ex-technician says

    In an undercover video released Wednesday, a former technician for a tissue-harvesting company details how an aborted baby was kept alive so that its heart could be harvested at a California Planned Parenthood facility, raising more legal questions about the group’s practices. Holly O’Donnell, a former blood and tissue procurement technician for the biotech startup StemExpress, also said she was asked to harvest an intact brain from the late-term, male fetus whose heart was still beating after the abortion.

    A former procurement technician of body parts from aborted babies explained that the company she worked for wouldn’t allow them to take parts from babies who died before the abortions, according to a Tuesday video.Another video released from the Center for Medical Progress features Holly O’Donnell, a whistleblower and former StemExpress procurement technician. O’Donell said they were only allowed to take fetal tissue from babies who were alive before they were aborted.“Let’s say a woman comes in for a medication abortion. And sometimes it doesn’t work and when it doesn’t work the baby will, its kinda hard to describe, but...

    In a huge victory for the pro-life advocate responsible for uncovering the grisly business of selling body parts of aborted babies, StemExpress has dropped its lawsuit against David Daleiden. Daleiden was responsible for the undercover videos exposing the Planned Parenthood abortion business and the abortion industry selling the body parts of aborted unborn children. StemExpress was a middleman that would take the body parts from Planned Parenthood and sell them at a much higher cost to scientists and researchers conducting dubious research with them. After it was exposed, StemExpress filed a lawsuit against the light and attempting to cover up...

    The Center for Medical Progress ^ | 11 Jan 2017 | David Daleiden, Project Lead for CMP
    LOS ANGELES, Jan. 11–StemExpress, the for-profit company that was one of Planned Parenthood’s biggest contractors to harvest and sell aborted baby body parts, is dropping its lawsuit against The Center for Medical Progress and walking away with nothing. CMP’s undercover videos exposed StemExpress in July 2015 as a major illegal vendor of aborted fetal organs and tissue from some of the biggest Planned Parenthood affiliates in the country. StemExpress advertised to abortion clinics that supplying fetal tissue would be “financially profitable” and this advertisement was endorsed by Dr. Dorothy Furgerson, Chief Medical Officer of Planned Parenthood Mar Monte where StemExpress...

    Washington, DC – The House Select Panel on Infant Lives has released a list of nine criminal and regulatory referrals against abortion providers and/or fetal tissue procurement companies made as a result of their investigation into the illegal practice of selling aborted baby remains for profit. The list was released in advance of an expected vote today on H. Res. 933, which would cover the expenses of the Select Panel’s work through the end of the year. Floor debate is currently scheduled to begin around 2:30pm ET, with 30 minutes for debate allotted to each of the two sides. The...

    Congressional Republicans are not backing down from their investigation of the Planned Parenthood abortion business and its sales of body parts of aborted babies. While Democrats want the investigation to end, Republicans have voted to double the budget of the probe, which has produced starting information related to the abortion industry’s sale of and research using aborted babies. The decision comes on the heels of a LifeNews report detailing how the University of Indiana was caught buying two brains of aborted babies for research from the University of Washington, potentially violating federal law. Here’s more: Over the objection of Democrats,...

    Despite parliamentary antics on the parts of pro-Planned Parenthood Democratic members of the Select Panel on Infant Lives, followed by several minutes of castigation of the Panel’s investigation, a markup meeting took place today where the Panel voted to hold StemExpress and its CEO, Cate Dyer, in contempt for failing to comply with subpoenas. Democratic members, led by Rep. Jan Schakowsky, refused to participate in the actual vote and walked out of the meeting. The resolution passed with 8 yes votes. A House Resolution Report seeking the contempt charges details a pattern of deception and stonewalling employed by StemExpress that...

    How bad must it be to serve as the attorneys for the biotech firm that sold aborted baby parts for Planned Parenthood? Apparently bad enough that the lawyers for StemExpress want to quit. As the pro-life legal group Life Legal Defense Foundation, which has represented undercover investigator David Daliden, tells LifeNews.com: “Life Legal recently received notice that the high-priced law firm retained by StemExpress, the fetal specimen broker that sued David Daleiden, has filed a motion to be removed from the case.” “McDermott, Will and Emery is one of the nation’s largest law firms, taking in almost $900 million in...

    Center For Medical Progress ^ | Jul 26, 2016 | David Daleiden
    The dismissal of the bogus, politically motivated charges against CMP project lead David Daleiden and investigator Sandra Merritt is a resounding vindication of the First Amendment rights of all citizen journalists, and also a clear warning to any of Planned Parenthood’s political cronies who would attack whistleblowers to protect Planned Parenthood from scrutiny. Planned Parenthood tried to collude with public officials to manipulate the legal process to their own benefit, and they failed. A year after the release of the undercover videos, the ongoing nationwide investigation of Planned Parenthood by the House Select Investigative Panel makes clear that Planned Parenthood...

    On Monday, in the case of Voisine v. the United States, the United States Supreme Court handed down a decision that prohibits people convicted of domestic violence from purchasing guns in a 6-2 vote, according to SCOTUSBlog. This was the case of two Maine men who were convicted on state domestic violence charges and then found with firearms and charged with violating a federal law that prohibits domestic abusers from having firearms," reads the live blog.

    The Supreme Court on Monday is poised to once again enter the fray on the abortion issue, an already divisive subject complicated by election-year politics and a split bench that may lack the votes to rule definitively. The high court will wrap up its work for the summer by issuing a judgment on how far Texas can go to regulate abortion clinics in the state, and whether those provisions have the effect of limiting first-trimester abortions guaranteed by the landmark Roe v. Wade ruling. Texas reproductive clinics are asking the justices to keep their facilities open in the face of...

    In 2004 Congress passed the Weldon amendment, which said that no state can discriminate against a healthcare entity because it refuses to participate in abortions. The language includes states discriminating against a health plan that decides not to cover abortion. If the state does, according to the amendment, it will lose its federal funding. In August 2014, California informed its health insurers that they would no longer be allowed to offer health plans that exclude elective abortions. Insurers complied, as one might expect, and suddenly, no one in California could purchase health insurance that didn't pay for the death of...

    An Evangelical Christian leader went against the grain of her religious subset’s strong pro-life stance this week and endorsed pro-abortion candidate Hillary Clinton for president. Deborah Fikes is the executive advisor to the World Evangelical Alliance, which works with churches in 129 countries to spread the Christian message. The Hill reports Fikes voiced her personal support for Clinton on Tuesday after a meeting between Christian leaders and likely Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. She called Clinton “trustworthy” and Trump “un-Christian” as she gave her personal endorsement to the pro-abortion candidate. “Hillary Clinton is the leader who people of faith are...

    An Alabama group is alleging that a young rape victim who chose life for her son experienced another traumatic situation this week when government workers took the newborn away from her.

The unnamed girl chose life for her son and gave birth to him on Monday in Alabaster, Alabama. The 14-year-old received several visits from the hospital social worker after her son was born; and on Wednesday, LaPoint said government officials from the state...
