Grand jury indicts leader behind Planned Parenthood videos

A Houston grand jury investigating undercover footage of Planned Parenthood found no wrongdoing Monday by the abortion provider but instead indicted anti-abortion activists involved in making the videos, Fox News reports.

David Daleiden, founder of the Center for Medical Progress, was indicted on a felony charge of tampering with a governmental record and a misdemeanor count related to purchasing human organs, Fox News reports. Another activist, Sandra Merritt, was also indicted on a charge of tampering with a governmental record.

Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson (a Republican) didn’t specify what record or records were allegedly tampered with in a statement announcing the indictment. “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.”

The Center for Medical Progress is the anti-abortion group that released covertly shot videos of Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of aborted fetuses for research. A phone message left with the group wasn’t immediately returned.

(Editor’s note: So I guess it is illegal to investigate alleged criminal wrong-doing. It’s illegal to act as a buyer of aborted fetus organs as part of the undercover investigation, but not illegal to SELL the organs? This smacks of politics. The Center for Medical Progress has done more to hold Planned Parenthood responsible for its harvesting of human fetus body parts than the entire Republican Party. Disgraceful.)
