Planned Parenthood Fights To Hide Evidence Of Selling Fetal Tissue In Daleiden Trial

By Madeline Osburn, The Federalist:

The federal civil jury trial brought by Planned Parenthood against undercover journalist David Daleiden and others associated with the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) began Wednesday in a San Francisco federal court.

Planned Parenthood’s lawsuit alleges that Daleiden and CMP committed 15 different crimes including wiretapping, conspiracy, trespassing, and breach of confidentiality. Daleiden’s defense team is arguing the project in question was not a criminal conspiracy, but an undercover journalism project. What remains to be seen over the next 6 to 8 weeks of trial, and what the defense’s argument relies on, is whether Planned Parenthood can keep the “why” behind Daleiden’s alleged crimes out of the courtroom.

Peter Breen, lead defense attorney, vice president, and senior counsel at the Thomas More Society said Planned Parenthood’s strategy from day one has been to deny the use of any evidence related to fetal tissue trafficking, born-alive infants, or its profiting from the sale of human fetal tissue.

“You can’t keep out from the lawsuit the reason why the entire project was undertaken,” Breen told The Federalist. “You can’t have a trial without telling people what they were doing in there or why they were there. That has a significant bearing on how you view the project.”
