David Daleidan, who heads the Center for Medical Progress, was indicted on Monday afternoon along with Sandra Merritt by a Harris County (Houston, Texas) grand jury. The two went undercover as journalists and filmed top doctors and executives from Planned Parenthood admitting that they were harvesting and selling the body parts of aborted babies, in many cases illegally altering the abortion procedure in order to secure top dollar for the most wanted baby body parts.
The two were indicted on charges in which they will face a maximum of 20 years in a federal prison, accused of tampering with a governmental record, a second-degree felony. Daleidan is facing additional misdemeanor charge prohibiting the purchase and sale of human organs.
According to the Houston Chronicle, the grand jury, out of Harris County (Houston), not only threw the book at the pro-life activists, the absolved Planned Parenthood from any wrongdoing. The baby killers and baby body parts chop, Planned Butcherhood, contended that they did nothing wrong, despite numerous doctors and clinic leaders employed by the anti-life, taxpayer-funded company admitting to the contrary on more than one occasion.

The national organization of Planned Parenthood had said in a letter to Congress that Daleiden was involved in secretly recording staff and patients at least 65 times over the last eight years.
The organization alleged that Daleiden and others used aliases, obtained fake government I.D.s, and formed a fake tissue procurement company in an effort to gain access to private areas and record private conversations to be deceptively edited to create a false impression.
The second indictment for Daleiden suggests that the grand jury found that he went too far in trying to get Planned Parenthood to admit to selling tissue. The crime, a class A misdemeanor is committed if a person intentionally offers to buy or offers to sell a human organ, including fetal tissue. If convicted, the maximum punishment is a year in jail.
Rochelle Tafolla, a spokesperson for the baby killer organizer, which sells the murder of innocent children in the womb as a ‘healthcare decision,’ gloated over the grand jury’s decision saying the murderous group feels vindicated.
“It’s great news because it demonstrates what we have said from the very beginning, which is that Planned Parenthood is following every rule and regulation, and that these people came into our buildings under the guise of health when their true intentions were to spread lies. We’re glad that these extremists have been indicted for breaking the law.”
Texas governor Greg Abbott addressed this indictment saying, “Nothing about today’s announcement in Harris County impacts the state’s ongoing investigation. The State of Texas will continue to protect life, and I will continue to support legislation prohibiting the sale or transfer of fetal tissue.”
Rep. Diane Black (R-TN), a nurse of more than 40 years and author of the House-passed Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015, addressed this indictment decision in a statement.
“It is a sad day in America when those who harvest the body parts of aborted babies escape consequences for their actions, while the courageous truth-tellers who expose their misdeeds are handed down a politically motivated indictment instead. Just days after tens of thousands of pro-life Americans participated in the March for Life to urge legal protection for the unborn, this senseless decision is a grim reminder of the work yet to be done. I am profoundly disappointed in this miscarriage of justice but it will not deter our efforts in Congress to hold Planned Parenthood accountable.”
