California Attorney General’s Office Searches Apartment of Man Behind Planned Parenthood Expose’

Daleiden-compressedLOS ANGELES — Representatives from the California attorney general’s office searched the apartment of the pro-life investigator behind the series of expose’ videos on Planned Parenthood’s harvesting and sale of aborted children.

“The California Attorney General’s office, led by Kamala Harris, [who] Planned Parenthood supported with thousands of dollars, is now searching David’s apartment,” the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) posted on Facebook on Tuesday.

As previously reported, David Daleiden, the director of CMP was indicted in January on a felony charge of “tampering with a governmental record” for creating a fake driver’s license in conducting his undercover investigation, as well as a misdemeanor count related to the purchasing of aborted babies.

Daleiden, 27, had posed as a representative of a fetal tissue procurement company in order to engage in discussions with Planned Parenthood officials as a potential buyer of bodily organs. He recorded the interactions, conducted at various locations across the country, as part of his “human capital” investigative series that was released last July.

The first of nearly a dozen videos was released by CMP featured Planned Parenthood Medical Director Deborah Nucatola, who nonchalantly munched on salad and sipped wine as she talked about adjusting the child so as not to crush certain organs due to the demand for the body part.

“I’d say a lot of people want liver. And for that reason, most providers will do this case under ultrasound guidance, so they’ll know where they’re putting their forceps,” she explains.

“[Y]ou’re just kind of cognizant where you put your graspers,” Nucatola outlines. “You try to intentionally go above and below the thorax, so that—-you know. We’ve been very good at getting the heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so ‘I’m not gonna crush that part. I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.’”

The second video showed Mary Gatter, the president of Planned Parenthood’s Medical Directors Council, haggling with the undercover investigators about the compensation for the fetal organs, laughing, “I want a Lamborghini.” Other footage showed an actual aborted baby being dissected in a dish, with an assistant declaring, “Another boy!” and another video showed an abortionist laughing about how harvesting an intact baby head would be “something to strive for.”

Planned Parenthood apologized for the insensitive “tone” of the first video, but denied that it profits from its agreements with scientific organizations. It soon announced that it would stop receiving reimbursement for “expenses” surrounding the provision of body parts of aborted babies. The abortion giant argued that the dead babies were beneficial in research to find cures for diseases.

On Tuesday, Harris’ office searched Daleiden’s apartment and seized all of his videos from the undercover investigation. Daleiden posted a statement afterward, remarking that the investigation is lopsided as Harris’ office ignored information surrounding the working relationship between former buyer StemExpress and Planned Parenthood. StemExpress discontinued its work with the abortion giant after CMP released videos revealing its involvement with the organization.

“Today, the California Attorney General’s office of Kamala Harris, who was elected with tens of thousands of dollars from taxpayer-funded Planned Parenthood, seized all video footage showing Planned Parenthood’s criminal trade in aborted baby parts, in addition to my personal information,” Daleiden wrote.

“Ironically, while seizing my First Amendment work product, they ignored documents showing the illicit scheme between StemExpress and Planned Parenthood,” he said. “This is no surprise—Planned Parenthood’s bought-and-paid-for AG has steadfastly refused to enforce the law against the baby body parts traffickers in our state, or even investigate them—while at the same time doing their bidding to harass and intimidate citizen journalists.”

Daleiden vowed to “pursue all remedies to vindicate [his] First Amendment rights.”

    Those whose hands shed innocent blood cannot let the truth out, because their father was a liar and murderer from the beginning.

    So sad that the US authorities are acting like Nazi officers searching the homes of the defenders of the Jews. The Westerners need Biblical teachings to know what is right and wrong. There is no lawfulness among mankind apart from the Biblical principles. Americans must remember the US Constitution and laws are from the Word of God. Who’d imagine USA would mimic Nazi Germany for the love of deadly selfishness (abortion) and sexual depravity (homosexuality)? Imperialists’ crazy nationalism was better than Sodom’s decadence. American Christians must not give up defending of life and sane morality for the sake of the glory of God and His truth and the protection of the entire world.

    • Paige Turner

      The man is a criminal. The officers are acting within the law and doing their job.

      • Grace Kim Kwon

        You are wrong. He is a real hero like Dutch Resistance. Murdering unborn babies and selling their body parts is the heinous crime. Some aspects of USA this century have much lower ethics than Nazi Germany. This is a serious problem for mankind.

          muslim and other religious extremists justify their lies and harmful anti-social behavior the same way.

        • Paige Turner

          So falsifying video evidence and other criminal activity is OK?

          You support criminal activities?

          The videos were fake. This is why he has been charged and his home raided.

    • WorldGoneCrazy

      Beautifully put, Grace – thanks for writing this truth!

      • Grace Kim Kwon

        Thank you. We will battle together for life and freedom.

        • WorldGoneCrazy

          Amen, Sister Grace!

      You’re a hoot.

    • Quantz

      The man is a dishonest criminal. And the officers are acting accordingly.

    Time will come the goats will be separated from the sheep for they do not belong to the same flock.

    • Paige Turner

      He is a criminal

    • WorldGoneCrazy

      Amen!

  • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

    This is what u call religious persecution by the powerful liberals-dominated US Federal govt by abusing laws.

    • Lexical Cannibal

      And the fact that he committed at least one federal crime while “exposing” them has nothing to do with it.

      • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

        So, it is legal for the FBI to conduct sting operations, but illegal for journalists to do the same.?

        • gizmo23

          Yes

          • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

            So, according to u, Michael Moore, the 2 Washington Post reporters who exposed Watergate(Bob Woodward n Carl Bernstein), all the 60 Minutes n 48 Hours journalists should be in jail for sting operations or exposing the improprieties of certain individuals or groups .?

          • gizmo23

            None of them hide who they are by using falsified ID. That is what he is charged with. Doing what he did was a felony and he could be convicted of such

          • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

            Don’t the FBI n CIA use false IDs in their sting operations.? The FBI even provide false or “new” IDs in their Witness Protection Program.

            There is a big difference between using a false ID to commit a felony n to expose the “felony” of PP selling aborted baby parts = biased n selective prosecution by the California AG, Kamala Harris, a Democrat..

          • gizmo23

            The FBI and CIA are federal law enforcement agencies not private citizens

          • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

            Like they say, “Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.”
            …….. This is what’s happening to the vote-pandering n power-crazy liberal Democrats of the Blue States(= former bullying North or Yankee States of the 1861 Civil War).

          • gizmo23

            The south were the dems the north was republican

          • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

            They flipped sides in the 1960s, when the liberal North/Blue States began to pander for the Black vote by giving them preferential or affirmative Civil Rights n Voting Rights/benefits.

        • Lexical Cannibal

          Not at all! It is, however, incredibly illegal to alter government documents, which this guy did. That’s really the big one. It’s also illegal to publicly misrepresent persons or organizations to their detriment, a la slander and libel. Since a (largely republican) investigation found no evidence of selling baby parts on PP’s end, he’s up for that, too, pending any actual truth to his claims.

          • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

            Those r trumped-up allegations against the journalists. It is a fact that PP do sell aborted baby parts.

          • Lexical Cannibal

            That “fact” has yet to be substantiated by anyone who doesn’t have a vested, personal interest in hurting Planned Parenthood and, as I just said, has pretty much been dismissed by an investigation made of people with no love for PP.

            The charges against the “investigator” however are very real and independently verifiable. The altered documents exist, and unfortunately making damaging claims about a person or organization that you can’t substantiate (and therefore cannot prove to be true) is pretty much the definition of libel/slander.

    • acontraryview

      No, this is what you call seizing evidence in an ongoing criminal investigation.

  • sammy13

    A fake ID to get a story as important as was done on PP should be viewed as a harmless necessity. If it were a fake police ID, I would say that is feloneous.

  • Slidellman4life

    The fact California’s AG has direct ties to Planned Parenthood makes all of this a conflict of interest on her part. But we all know the Lynch DOJ won’t do anything to protect David’s rights.
