I stand with David! Sign the Petition From FRC

7 min read

A few months ago the world was shocked again by the revelation that representatives from Planned Parenthood, the National Abortion Federation, and other abortion groups were sitting around laughing about innocent baby eyeballs falling into their laps and pulling off a “leg or two.” David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) captured this and other horrific footage that revealed to the world the underbelly of the abortion industry: the sale and trafficking of aborted baby body parts.

Now, David is under attack by California’s liberal Attorney General, Xavier Becerra, and activist Judge William Orrick.

Attorney General Becerra, who received thousands of dollars in contributions from Planned Parenthood during his congressional campaigns, filed fifteen bogus felony charges against David…an action even the Los Angeles Times Editorial Board called a “disturbing overreach.” Though 14 of the 15 were dismissed, Becerra has threatened to have them reinstated. Judge Orrick also has close ties with Planned Parenthood having served as an active board member of the Good Samaritan Family Resource Center (GSFRC) in San Francisco, which has had a Planned Parenthood facility on its site for a number of years. GSFRC has even gone so far as to describe its relationship with Planned Parenthood as a “key partnership.”

David has an uphill climb in his legal battle against Attorney General Becerra and Judge Orrick. Despite the fact that the Center for Medical Progress uses the same legal undercover techniques that investigative journalists have used for many years, bias toward the abortion industry could prevent David from receiving a fair trial.

The state of California has previously refused to press charges in similar circumstances where nearly identical techniques were used. First, when NBC’s Dateline was sued in California (in Wilkins v. NBC) when it taped a lunch meeting with a company’s salesperson, the court ruled in favor of undercover journalists NBC using the same law that is now being used against David. Second, when two animal welfare groups, Mercy for Animals and Compassion Over Killing, went undercover to capture footage of animal abuse in California using the same techniques as David, the attorney general’s office did not file charges. Instead, the state chose to investigate the farms that were at the center of the groups’ reporting. However, on the issue of abortion, state officials refuse to investigate the abhorrent practices of the abortion industry and Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider. Instead, state officials are waging a war against the messenger, David, and not the perpetrators.

By attacking a citizen journalist for his undercover work, they are also trampling on David’s First Amendment rights. David has a Constitutional right to share his work with the public, just as the public has the right to know Planned Parenthood’s outrageous actions.

Here’s the bottom line: Liberal politicians have targeted David for leading the charge in exposing the abortion industry and Planned Parenthood’s grisly business and they’ve stacked the deck against him. David is counting on us to let our voices be heard and to stand with him.

I’m standing with David and agree that Congress should act now to defund Planned Parenthood and that in order for David to have a fair trial, Judge Orrick must recuse himself due to his ties to Planned Parenthood which unfairly bias his judgment in this case.
