[A]t least pro-lifers had the right to protest the rampaging child-killers, however impotently, and expose the grisly, Naziesque, industrial butchery of the abortion industry.
Note the tense, because it's no typo:
A Houston grand jury investigating undercover footage of Planned Parenthood found no wrongdoing Monday by the abortion provider but instead indicted [pro-life] activists involved in making the videos that provoked outrage among Republican leaders nationwide.
David Daleiden, founder of the Center for Medical Progress, was indicted on a felony charge of tampering with a governmental record and a misdemeanor count related to purchasing human organs. Another activist, Sandra Merritt, was also indicted on a charge of tampering with a governmental record.
Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson didn't specify what record or records were allegedly tampered with in a statement announcing the indictment. [emphasis added]
How convenient. Sounds trumped up, doesn't it?

It took a while for this particular "other shoe" to drop, but down it finally came yesterday:
A Planned Parenthood attorney accused of conspiring with a district attorney against a man who shot a video in which the sale of fetal body parts is purportedly discussed — has denied the charge, but admits the prosecutor gave him a copy of the footage.
"The recent filings by the Harris County District Attorney confirm that the DA shared confidential documents and information with abortion provider Planned Parenthood, colluding with it in the prosecution of David Daleiden." attorney Peter Breen told Breitbart Texas.
"These filings also include evidence that appears to show that the DA's office worked with Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast to undermine the Texas Attorney General's independent investigation of that abortion provider.
"The conduct of Harris County prosecutors in this case is outrageous and illegal. We look forward to pressing our motion to quash this indictment in court." [emphasis added]
I believe the legal term for this phenomenon is "oops".
This should prove the anti-CMP conspiracy beyond any reasonable or unreasonable doubt and clear Mr. Daleiden completely and forthwith. But that's probably not the way to bet.
