David Daleiden of the Center for Medical Progress shocked the world when he exposed the selling of baby body parts from abortion by Planned Parenthood. His case has been going through the courts for years, and a recent ruling has just found him guilty of multiple “crimes” and he is now being forced to pay millions of dollars in fines.
David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress undercover investigators have been found guilty of multiple crimes and must pay millions in damages to Planned Parenthood for the work they did in exposing organ harvesting on aborted babies.
The jury of nine men and one woman released its verdict Friday afternoon after deliberating less than two days, even though the landmark civil trial took six weeks.
The exact amount the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) investigators must pay in the civil suit has not yet been determined. Local San Francisco reporter Helen Chistophi tweeted from the courthouse that the punitive damages totaled $870,000.
Pro-life defense lawyers have already stated they will appeal, telling reporters outside the courtroom the “process was unfair.”
The case was heard by San Francisco’s U.S. District Court Judge William Orrick III, who has ties to Planned Parenthood, but refused to disqualify himself when defense requested him to do so.
CMP released videos in 2015 exposing Planned Parenthood’s apparently illegal trade in aborted baby body parts after a 30-month undercover operation.
The groundbreaking videos showed top-level Planned Parenthood executives haggling over prices of aborted baby body parts, and discussing how to change abortion procedures to obtain more intact organs, and sparked public outrage, congressional and senate hearings, and an ongoing Department of Justice criminal investigation into Planned Parenthood.
In the retaliatory lawsuit, Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) and 10 affiliates accused CMP project lead Daleiden, investigators Sandra Merritt and Adrian Lopez, and founding board members Albin Rhomberg and Troy Newman of Operation Rescue of multiple crimes, including illegal taping, fraud, and violating the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization (RICO) statute in connection with CMP journalists going undercover at Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation conferences in 2014 and 2015.
They were seeking $630,000 in base damages and millions of dollars in punitive damages.
Lawyers for the CMP citizen journalists say they were hampered by Orrick ruling out a First Amendment defense.
“Unfortunately, we couldn’t get Judge Orrick to back off from his insistence that the jury be instructed that the First Amendment … does not state any kind of defense to the charges in this case,” said Thomas Brejcha, founder of the Thomas More Society, in an update on the case last week. (source)
The results of this case are sad, but are not a surprise because the abortion issue is directly connected to the military-industrial complex, DARPA, and the defense industry.
Shoebat.com has written about this in our archives, where based on public source data, reports, and documentation, there is strong evidence that these body parts are being used for advanced bio-mechanical experiments for DARPA and DARPA contractors in academia and the corporate world. The purpose of these experiments seems to be in order to connect living tissue to computers operating AI technology, which as we have noted is the basis of the “cyborg” from science fiction stories- a robot, surrounded by and interacting with living tissue, that is the “soldier of the future” and will be as influential in a coming war as the machine gun and poison gas was in World War I and as the nuclear bomb was in World War II.
Daleiden had a strong case, but the issue was not about him or even the constitution, which at this point just exists on paper and is selectively enforced depending on the political expediency of its enforcement. To rule in favor of Daleiden would be a real victory for the pro-life movement and would potentially jeopardize the easy harvesting of dead babies for use in the experiments of the military-industrial complex, inspired by Hitler and Hirohito through the T-4 and Unit 731 eugenics programs, and which both could have only dreamed of today. If keeping these experiments going means destroying Daleiden, then in the view of those who are directly involved in profiting either in a fiscal, research, or work context, he is a small price to pay for reviving the eugenics of the past but in a modern context.
