Texas Grand Jury Indicts Two Activists Involved In Planned Parenthood Expose’…

The grand jury was charged with looking into whether or not Planned Parenthood violated the law as evidenced in the undercover videos.  However, in an unexpected turn of events, the activists involved in the expose’ are now indicted.

Coexist anti-abortion poster(Via Fox News)  A grand jury in Houston investigating undercover footage of Planned Parenthood allegations of misconduct instead indicted two anti-abortion activists who made videos of the organization on Monday.

Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson said in a statement that the founder of the Center for Medical Progress, David Daleiden, was indicted on a felony charge of tampering with a governmental record and a misdemeanor count related to purchasing human organs.

Another center employee, Sandra Merritt, was also indicted on a charge of tampering with a governmental record.

In a statement announcing the indictment, Anderson didn’t provide details on the charges, including what record or records were allegedly tampered with and why Daleiden faces a charge related to buying human organs.

Anderson’s office said it could not provide details until the documents charging Daleiden and Merritt were formally made public.

“We were called upon to investigate allegations of criminal conduct by Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast,” Anderson said. “As I stated at the outset of this investigation, we must go where the evidence leads us. All the evidence uncovered in the course of this investigation was presented to the grand jury. I respect their decision on this difficult case.”  (read more)

    Reeder’s LinkedIn page indicates that she has been a Planned Parenthood board member since 2013 and a fundraiser for the abortion provider since 2009”

      Oscars since the acting required to keep from hurling up ones 50$ lunch when these heathens joked of sucking baby’s brains out. And then convincingly duping them into admitting sales of baby parts for profit. I dont think even Gary from Team America could pull this one off.
      The award for courage, because we see they are fighting the whole of government and pervasive evil that make Jason look like an armature chainsaw murderer… while millions are harvested (die).

      the law broken is a bit more complicated. It covers attempts to buy body parts. So, if he was courting their business, and they actually never crossed any line to a level of commitment to sell, then he broke the law, and they arguably did not..

      I have not heard yet what the doctoring govt documents part is – perhaps he presented a faked document showing the faux business was genuine.

      Again, if so, he is guilty.

      But no big deal.

      If he serves time, it won’t be long. And Apostle Paul serves as a role model for tolerating jail. If he has to pay fines, he will get plenty of donations.

      Otherwise, this is more free publicity for this righteous cause. Any court case gives him a ton of opportunity to fully explain what he was doing. Possibly, the entire Gulf coast video might get showcased.

      PP has also filed a suit against Daleiden. This again is very dumb. PP does best when few are aware of their sordid business. Daleiden can survive and thrive on the publicity.

      PP must really believe they need to have a “chilling effect” on any other muckraker journalists. This shows vulnerability.

      All you have to do to stump these people is ask them when life begins:

        If he never intended to buy then he is not guilty of an attempt to buy. An attempt hinges on intent a willingness to actuly follow through. It is pretty safe to say their was no plan to actuly buy body parts and was lying to them. In are system you presumed innocent and their is a solid case for never intending to actuly buy thus no true attempt was made. (That charge never should of happened in other words as their isn’t even reasonable suspicion as it is clear they never wanted to buy them in the first place due to the nature of the sting operation.)

        As for doctoring documents I would have to know more about the specific charge and the documents “doctored.” I have a suspicion it was a very similar overreach.

    We need to indict the entire FBI and every local LEA have been doing with sting operations for the last 50 years, then.

    Should we indict Chris Hansen?

    “Have a seat over there.”

    They’re indicting him for trying to buy body parts. (Which is somehow just a misdemeanor…) When he is trying to journalistically PROVE that those people are willing to sell body parts.

    This is so messed up.

    As for Trump jumping on this right now? I don’t know. Maybe for the basic part of PPP getting no indictment, but unless he has further knowledge of what is indicated on the 2 who were indicated, would tread carefully till more is known. And we all know it’s BS, because when they start hiding their reasons, we know what they’re up to.

    Better game plan is to make cruz respond, take action. He IS a sitting Senator from Texas, right? Make him head to DC and do his job. But it won’t happen. He was never in this to be a senator. He is only there as a stepping stone to the presidency, like obama. I highly doubt he’ll leave the campaign trail a week before Iowa caucus to do the right thing.
    Side note: i remember few years back hearing how Texas was going purple and I thought no way. But I’ll be darned, with the infestation of the Californias, the Muslims and of course, the bleeding boarder it is happening faster than I thought. Bit by bit they are consuming Texas along with the rest of our country.

    Ok, I know I’ll catch some flack, but…

    Technically, didn’t they lie about the nature and purpose of their organization when they applied for 501(c)3 non-profit status? They were an anti-abortion advocacy group parading as a biomedical research foundation? (this would account for the tampering with a government record charge)

    And the videos of them talking with Planned Parenthood about buying body parts… I can see how that might be viewed as criminal solicitation.

    “Under the solicitation statute, the Government must prove two essential elements. First, the Government must establish that the defendant had the intent that another person engage in conduct constituting a felony crime of violence in violation of Federal law. The intent must be shown to be serious by strongly corroborative circumstances. Second, the Government must prove that the defendant commanded, induced, or otherwise endeavored to persuade the other person to commit the felony.”

      “Tampering With Governmental Record” has a specific meaning:

      http://www.statutes.legis.state.tx.us/Docs/PE/htm/PE.37.htm

      The felony applies to a specific subset of documents:

      …a public school record, report, or assessment instrument required under Chapter 39, Education Code, data reported for a school district or open-enrollment charter school to the Texas Education Agency through the Public Education Information Management System (PEIMS) described by Section 42.006, Education Code, under a law or rule requiring that reporting, or a license, certificate, permit, seal, title, letter of patent, or similar document issued by government, by another state, or by the United States…

      So, a 501(c)(3) application would not appear to fall under this statute. (Also, I do not believe that falsifying a 501(c)(3) application would fall under the tampering statute anyway. I could be wrong.)

      As for the solicitation nonsense: there is zero chance that the prosecution can prove beyond a reasonable doubt that CMP actually intended to purchase organs, when the obvious intent was to produce sting videos.

        Reread the elements of the crime of solicitation. What has to be proved is they intended that the party being solicited would commit the crime they were being asked to commit. There is no requirement that the folks who solicited PP for body parts actually follow through with the purchase, only that they intended to get PP to procure illegal body parts.

        Imagine that you solicit someone to kill your spouse. You promise to pay them once she has been murdered and you ask that they bring you a body part as proof she’s dead. They follow through, but you don’t pay them. You’re still guilty of solicitation.

        In this Planned Parenthood sting, however, had the PP officials they were soliciting for body parts taken the bait… a crime would have occurred and a mother and child would have been harmed.

        At what point, if ever, did they inform the PP officials that they weren’t serious? Or did they sit back and wait for PP to call them and say they had the body parts they had discussed?

    “Odd Indictment Of Planned Parenthood Videographers Good News For Unborn”

    Rick Wells has an interesting take on this, and he’s got a point –

    Now the process will move beyond mere accusations to a courtroom. That setting will allow for the adversarial presentation of arguments, evidence and rebuttal, cross- examinations and objective analysis rather than the Obama administration’s court of wholly owned-media, the venue in which it played out previously…

    Planned Parenthood claims to have been vindicated by the decision of the grand jury but they shouldn’t start celebrating just yet. A decision not to indict is in no way an acquittal or anything more than the determination of this one deliberative body not to proceed. The outcome of the trial of the videographers could still result in charges being filed against the abortion mill and we can be certain that there will be a long lists of witnesses called to testify. The dirty laundry will be hung in the sunlight.”
