The case against those pro life people who made some of the anti-planned parenthood videos has been dropped.

Two people were indicted by a grand jury, but today a county district attorneys office in Texas cancelled the charges.

WoW

Many people thought this case in particular was a lock cinch.

All Charges Dropped Against Activists Behind Undercover Planned Parenthood Videos


All charges have been dismissed against the pro-life activists indicted in Texas for their involvement in the making of undercover videos about Planned Parenthood.

The Houston Chronicle reports the Harris County District Attorney’s Office has dismissed all charges against the two activist filmmakers, David Daleiden, 27, and Sandra Merritt, 63. As LawNewz.com reported in January, a grand jury empaneled to investigate misconduct by officials at Planned Parenthood instead decided to flip the script, returning indictments against Daleiden and Merritt. Both were charged with second degree felony tampering with a governmental record for allegedly using fake identification cards to hide their real identities when making the videos. Daleiden was also charged with a misdemeanor for allegedly attempting to purchase human organs.

Seeing how they weren't doing that no they won't be charged. It's no shock that Texas would let antiabortionist walk free.

Honest question, dosent the article say that both will still have charges brought against them, just different ones?

I might have read that wrong.

I am pretty sure the term is pro-life not anti-abortionist. I am sure that pro-choice people don't want to be stigmatized with anti-life as their position.

Their rhetoric would leave me to describe many of them as anti-life.


Some of the excuses and foul rhetoric I heard in the PP threads made me sick to my stomach.

The charges originally came from the indictments.

Then dropped later by the States Attorney.

"Returning" in this context means "charges were returned by the grand jury"

I see now the word 'returning' could be interpreted as "coming back" like a verb.

But that's not the original meaning in this case, it's a "noun" in context from the grand jury.

The charges were dropped in June because of technical flaws in the way the misdemeanor indictment was worded.

The charges were dropped yesterday on the felony indictment for the same reason.

It is a known and documented fact that Daleiden and his accomplice did attempt to purchase human body parts, and they did use fake IDs to do so. Their own heavily-edited videos clearly demonstrate this fact.

Planned Parenthood was investigated in 11 states AND WAS EXONERATED on the bogus charges of selling fetal tissue and associated nonsense.
