For days I’ve studied the complicated story of the legal war between anti-abortion activists David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt (Center for Medical Progress) and the government in California, led by Attorney General Xavier Becerra. A preliminary hearing is underway in San Francisco Superior Court, brought against Daleiden and Merritt, and set in motion originally by former California AG Kamala Harris. If convicted, Daleiden and Merritt could face up to 10 years in prison for faking their identities and recording damning undercover videos that exposed the abortion industries darkest secrets. The charges include 15 felony counts of illegal taping.
By now, we all know this much:
For many years abortion clinics, including but not limited to Planned Parenthood, have partnered with biotech companies to “procure” parts of fetuses after abortions. Biotech companies then obtain these fetuses for very little and sell them for astronomical prices. A haze of palatability, futurism, heroic medicine and even morality hang over the whole thing as soon as we hear the words “stem-cell research.”
To get a sense of the macabre reality and details, one can download and read a Senate report titled: “Human Fetal Tissue Research: Context and Controversy”
Page 3 spells out the grim business.
“Since 2010, Three Companies–Advanced Bioscience Resources, Inc.; StemExpress, LLC, and Novogenix Laboratories, LLC–Have paid Planned Parenthood affiliates to acquire aborted fetuses, and subsequently sold the fetal tissue to their respective customers at substantially higher prices than their documented costs.”
The details are harrowing and heartbreaking.
