Pro-life activist David Daleiden sues Kamala Harris, Planned Parenthood 

Investigative journalist David Daleiden has filed a lawsuit against Planned Parenthood and California Senator Kamala Harris accusing them and others of violating his civil rights.

Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress released undercover videos in 2015 that show Planned Parenthood abortionists and other abortion providers discussing methods they use to procure the tissue and intact organs and limbs of aborted babies to sell to research labs and biotechnology companies such as Stem Express, which is also named in the suit along with California Attorney General Xavier Becerra and the National Abortion Federation as defendants.

In the complaint, Daleiden and CMP accuse the defendants of “a brazen, unprecedented, and ongoing conspiracy to selectively use California’s video recording laws as a political weapon to silence disfavored speech.”

“Daleiden became the first journalist ever to be criminally prosecuted under California’s recording law.
