SACRAMENTO (Christian Examiner) – Police have served a search warrant at the apartment of anti-abortion activist and filmmaker David Daleiden, Lifesite News reported April 6.
Daleiden, founder of the Center for Medical Progress and head of an undercover investigation of Planned Parenthood's trafficking of aborted fetal body parts, wrote in a Facebook post Wednesday morning that his home had been raided by police who confiscated all of his video footage.
He called the raid a violation of his First Amendment rights.
"Today, the California Attorney General's office of Kamala Harris, who was elected with tens of thousands of dollars from taxpayer-funded Planned Parenthood, seized all video footage showing Planned Parenthood's criminal trade in aborted baby parts, in addition to my personal information," Daleiden wrote.
"Ironically, while seizing my First Amendment work product, they ignored documents showing the illicit scheme between StemExpress and Planned Parenthood. This is no surprise – Planned Parenthood's bought-and-paid-for AG has steadfastly refused to enforce the law against the baby body parts traffickers in our state, or even investigate them – while at the same time doing their bidding to harass and intimidate citizen journalists. We will pursue all remedies to vindicate our First Amendment rights."
Daleiden, whose effort to obtain proof of Planned Parenthood's sale of body parts was conducted under the guise of a tissue procurement company called BioMax, accomplished his work with the use of false identification. That earned him multiple charges in Houston, Texas, where he was indicted for tampering with a government record and, ironically, offering to buy aborted fetal body parts.
