Today, a grand jury in Texas that was investigating Planned Parenthood indicted David Daleiden and one of his co-conspirators instead.
“As we’ve known all along, David Daleiden is the one who broke the law, not abortion providers,” said Vicki Saporta, National Abortion Federation (NAF) President and CEO. “In order to launch his smear campaign, Daleiden engaged in a long-running illegal conspiracy and he should be held accountable for his actions, which have put abortion providers at risk.”
Daleiden and Sandra Merritt were indicted on felony charges of tampering with a governmental record, and Daleiden was also indicted on a misdemeanor count related to purchasing human organs.
The Grand Jury found no evidence of wrongdoing by NAF member Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast.
