Charges Against Planned Parenthood Exposure Dropped

A California State Court dismissed almost all of the criminal charges filed by pro-abortion forces against David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt, the pair who exposed with undercover videos the fact that Planned Parenthood has been selling body parts of aborted babies.

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra filed 15 felony charges against Daleiden and Merritt.  Becerra stood to gain from his attack against the pro-life advocates since he has financial connections to the Planned Parenthood abortion company that the two pro-life Advocates exposed in the videos for selling body parts such as fetal brains and livers.  Therefore, for Becerra, it was not only a political choice as a Democrat, but a personal vendetta designed to protect his ill-investments.

The San Francisco Superior Court dismissed 14 of the 15 bogus criminal counts.  The one remaining charge is one count of conspiracy to invade privacy.

Daleiden and Merritt are not out of the woods just yet.  Becerra can still go back on the attack because the court dismissed the charges with leave to amend, which means that Becerra could re-file the charges with additional evidence against the pair.

“We will now turn our attention to dismissing the final count. Sandra Merritt did nothing wrong. The complaint by the California Attorney General is unprecedented and frankly will threaten every journalist who provides valuable information to the public. This final count will also fall,” said Matt Staver of the Liberty Counsel who is defending the case.

A similar set of charges were levied against Daleiden and Merritt in Houston. Those charges were also eventually dropped due to the bogus nature of them.

As with the legal attacks against President Trump's executive orders, the liberal left's pro-abortion forces are using the courts for their own political advances, and are disregarding the rule of law.  From a constitutional point of view, woe is America when the rule of law means nothing because the Democrats seek to instead advance their anti-constitutional and anti-morality policies through the manipulation of the law, and the rule of men.
