Planned Parenthood Cleared of Any Wrongdoing
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, January 25, 2016 (Cincinnati, OH) – In a stunning miscarriage of justice, today a Houston, TX grand jury indicted Center for Medical Progress founder, David Daleiden and associate Sharon Merritt, and cleared Planned Parenthood of any wrongdoing.
The grand jury indicted David Daleiden, who released undercover videos this summer exposing Planned Parenthood officials trafficking in the sale of aborted baby body parts, on a felony charge of tampering with a governmental record and a misdemeanor count related to purchasing human organs. His associate, Sandra Merritt, was also indicted on a charge of tampering with a governmental record.
“History has proven that Planned Parenthood is the master of lies, and judicial activism to protect the abortion industry abounds,” said Paula Westwood, Executive Director, Right to Life of Greater Cincinnati. “We trust that courageous legal minds will clear David soon and Planned Parenthood’s true nature will be even further exposed.”
David Daleiden’s defense is covered by the Thomas More Society.
