America marks Memorial Day this weekend, a federal holiday originating after the Civil War to remember and appreciate the sacrifice of those who have died defending our nation.

A lawyer representing indicted pro-life activist David Daleiden says a Planned Parenthood lawyer accused of colluding with prosecutors to secure the indictment has admitted that a Houston-area district attorney's office shared "confidential" documents with him about the case.
As previously reported, a Harris County grand jury was responsible for investigating the illegal aborted baby compensation practices of Planned Parenthood after a Center for Medical Progress undercover video last year purported to show officials from a Houston Planned Parenthood clinic violating state and federal laws regulating the procurement and sale of aborted fetal tissue.
