Judge William Orrick ruled that the secretly recorded videos from the Center for Medical Progress contained nothing illegal or anything that alluded to criminal activity by Planned Parenthood or its employees. This shuts down, yet again, virtually every Republican argument that uses these videos as its base. How many times have they been debunked now? Four? Five? Will Republicans ever accept it?
However, what is extremely significant is that the judge also ruled these videos could put providers at risk. Citing the recent mass shooting at a Planned Parenthood clinic, death threats doctors have received and a suspected arson at another facility, the judge made it clear that these videos are motivating people to engage in domestic terrorism.
The ruling, in this case, is important. David Daleiden and his organization could potentially be held criminally liable for further crimes where the videos were a motivating factor.

A Tennessee woman was charged with attempted first-degree murder last week for allegedly trying to use a coat hanger to end her pregnancy. Anna Yocca, 31, was arrested in Tennessee in September after she showed up bleeding at a hospital, fearing for her health and safety. She gave birth to a very premature baby boy, who was just 24 weeks along and weighed one and a half pounds.
