    A Planned Parenthood employee testified in court that she wanted to “move forward” and sell fetal livers for $750 each. Transcripts show that Tram Nguyen, who identifies herself as a healthcare administrator at Planned Parenthood of the Gulf Coast, said that she wanted to proceed with a deal to sell fetal livers for $750 each or combos of fetal livers and fetal thymi for $1,600. Nguyen testified in March 2019 as part of the trial of the Center for Medical Progress’ David Daleiden, who secretly recorded and released videos exposing Planned Parenthood employees discussing buying and selling fetal body parts....

    A San Francisco Superior Court judge ruled Friday that nine of the state’s 15 felony charges against undercover journalists David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt, in a prosecution initiated by then-California Attorney General Kamala Harris, have enough evidence to proceed to a criminal trial. The judge dropped the other six charges. Daleiden and Merritt, citizen journalists with the Center for Medical Progress, were charged with 14 felony counts of illegal taping of confidential information (eavesdropping) and one count of conspiracy, in which they exposed the illegal activity of Planned Parenthood and the human tissue procurement company StemExpress. The case marks the...

    (Liberty Counsel) – Liberty Counsel will appeal the verdict in the multimillion-dollar civil lawsuit against Sandra Merritt for her undercover investigation of Planned Parenthood’s trafficking of human baby body parts. From the beginning, the court severely restricted the evidence, and at the end gave instructions to the jury that instructed them how they should rule on critical issues. The jury decided in favor of the abortion giant on each count, including RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations), and awarded more than $2 million in damages. The case was heard by San Francisco’s U.S. District Court Judge William Orrick III, who...

    On Friday, a jury awarded Planned Parenthood Federation of America, and multiple Planned Parenthood affiliates, damages set to exceed $2.3 million in their civil case against undercover journalists David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt and several of their associates. The country’s largest cohort of abortion providers sued Daleiden and his colleagues after the 2015 release of a series of investigative videos that exposed Planned Parenthood’s trafficking in fetal parts. The jury found the defendants liable on an array of state law theories, including trespass, breach of contract and of non-disclosure agreements, and fraud, as well as state and federal laws prohibiting...

    LIVE ACTION NEWS ^ | SEPT. 20, 2019 | Nancy Flanders |
    Exsanguination is a little-known form of abortion no one seems to talk about – until recently. By definition, exsanguination is the action of draining a person, animal, or organ of blood. Apparently, based on the testimony of an abortionist who has aborted preborn children for 50 years, it’s also a way to kill children before they are born by cutting the umbilical cord… and waiting. Abortionist Dr. Forrest Smith says he has committed over 50,000 abortions, and recently testified in support of pro-life undercover Center for Medical Progress investigators David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt during their criminal preliminary hearing. Smith...

    San Francisco, CA – Closing arguments are set to begin today in the Planned Parenthood v. CMP et. al. case in the Federal Courtroom of Judge William Orrick in San Francisco. Defendants in the case include Troy Newman of Operation Rescue, Sandra Merritt, Albin Rhomberg, David Daleiden, and Adrian Lopez, along with two business entities, Center for Medical Progress and Biomax. The case stems from the release of several undercover videos in the summer of 2015 that showed Planned Parenthood executives discussing the sale of aborted baby parts for “valuable consideration” and methods used to ensure that tissues and organs...

    Liberty Counsel Chief Litigation Counsel Harry Mihet makes his closing argument to the jury tomorrow morning in a San Francisco federal courtroom. The 11-person jury (one was excused after an accident) starts deliberating Wednesday. That’s why I’m asking you to pray for Harry . . . and especially for our client Sandra Merritt. She faces the very real possibility of a crushing jury verdict. And that verdict could come anytime–possibly even later this week. Planned Parenthood is suing Sandra for millions. Her supposed “crime” was exposing the abortion giant’s brutal, merciless and greedy commerce in the baby body parts it...

    SAN FRANCISCO, California, – In her first-ever public testimony, Sandra Merritt told a San Francisco jury Friday why she took part in an undercover operation that exposed Planned Parenthood’s trafficking in aborted baby body parts. Testifying in the Planned Parenthood Federation civil suit against the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), the 66-year-old grandmother said she believed Planned Parenthood was committing such crimes as partial-birth abortion, battery against women by changing abortion procedures in order to procure more intact organs, and harvesting organs from babies born alive during abortions. “I thought it was horrific. I thought it needed to come to...

    There's been a "game-changer" at the California civil trial in which Planned Parenthood is suing the investigators whose undercover videos exposed the abortion industry's scheme to profit from the sale of baby body parts. For the first time, jurors were allowed to see portions of the videos that were released in 2015. The videos -- featuring Planned Parenthood executives making admissions on hidden camera -- caused a furor that caught the attention of lawmakers. California regulators shut down businesses that had been buying body parts, and two congressional committees referred companies and individuals for possible prosecution. The committees cited a...

    Lawyers for a defendant in a civil action in California over the 2015 undercover videos that exposed Planned Parenthood and the American abortion industry's profiting from baby body parts say lawyers for abortionists have flubbed. The civil lawsuit by abortion interests targets David Daleiden, Sandra Merritt and the Center for Medical Progress, including board member Troy Newman. They released a series of videos that show, among other things, one abortionist seeking higher pay for baby body parts because "I want a Lamborghini." The civil case, in which abortionists are seeking monetary damages for the videos, are a prelude to the...

    A judge has dismissed more of the bogus charges against Sandra Merritt, who helped expose Planned Parenthood’s sales of aborted baby parts along with David Daleiden. Judge Christopher Hite of the San Francisco Superior Court has already dismissed one and a half of the 15 felony criminal charges brought against Sandra Merritt by California Attorney General Xavier Becerra for her undercover journalism work which exposed Planned Parenthood’s trade in baby body parts. The statute of limitations has run out on these dismissed charges so they cannot be brought again. The undercover videos, most of which were recorded at the National...

    An attorney representing Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, Josh Schaffer, has admitted that he pressured the Harris County District Attorney’s office to refocus a grand jury investigation away from his client and onto pro-life journalists David Daleiden and his associate, Sandra Merritt, of the Center for Medical Progress. Schaeffer also confessed that Assistant District Attorney Sunni Mitchell did an “end around” the State Attorney General Ken Paxton in order to share sealed video evidence with Planned Parenthood. The grand jury later returned indictments against Daleiden and Merritt. Shaffer stated publicly that he was informed by the District Attorney’s office that no...
