Pro-Life Group and Founder David Daleiden Ordered to Pay Planned Parenthood $870k in Damages for Undercover Videos

The Center for Medical Progress, a pro-life organization, and it’s founder David Daleiden have been ordered to pay Planned Parenthood $870,000 in damages for their undercover videos exposing the abortion clinic’s sales of fetus organs.

The CMP’s shocking videos rocked the internet and network news in 2015.

On Friday, a jury ruled in favor of Planned Parenthood. The CMP has already vowed to appeal the decision.

“This lawsuit is payback for David Daleiden exposing Planned Parenthood’s dirty business of buying and selling fetal parts and organs,” lead Society Defense Attorney Peter Breen told the Christian Post.

 

“We intend to seek vindication for David on appeal. His investigation into criminal activity by America’s largest abortion provider utilized standard investigative journalism techniques, those applied regularly by news outlets across the country.”

Jury awards Planned Parenthood $870K in punitive damages plus hundreds of thousands more in compensatory damages. Lady Justice was not blind in this trial, Judge Orrik’s rulings against CMP et al created bias against us with jury, black eye for #1A, dangerous precedent,” CMP tweeted in response to the ruling.

The Christian Post reports that “during the preliminary hearing in September, Planned Parenthood staffers admitted to providing fetal tissue from abortions to brokers. The head of StemExpress, a biotech firm that procures fetal body parts for research, also allegedly admitted in court to procuring intact fetal heads and beating hearts.”

Planned Parenthood celebrated the ruling on Twitter, claiming that “today’s ruling makes clear what many already knew: the only people who engaged in wrongdoing are the ones behind this dangerous fraud, and we’re glad that they’re being held accountable.”
