StemExpress Files Center For Medical Progress Lawsuit Against Planned Parenthood
The Center for Medical Progress has been involved in a legal battle against Planned Parenthood. The Human Capital Project uncovered how abortion providers profited from selling aborted babies. Now, StemExpress is suing the Center for Medical Progress. How did the lawsuit come about? It may be surprising. Read on to find out. Listed below are three major points of this lawsuit. If you’re considering filing a suit, here’s what you should do first.
The Center for Medical Progress, a nonprofit group, filed an appeal in federal court in San Francisco requesting the dismissal of Planned Parenthood’s $16 million retaliation lawsuit. CMP released undercover videos in which Planned Parenthood leadership illegally procured fetal body parts from other medical providers. The videos claimed that Planned Parenthood profited from the donation of fetal tissue and illegally recorded private meetings.
According to the plaintiffs, Daleiden and Merritt engaged in a smear campaign and deceptive practices to damage Planned Parenthood’s reputation. The two women obtained false information and deceived Planned Parenthood’s patients. In the end, their actions interfered with Planned Parenthood’s ability to provide health care and provide legal abortion services.
In the lawsuit, Daleiden and Merritt posed as human tissue procurers and secretly filmed staff members at a Planned Parenthood clinic. The videos were later published, and Planned Parenthood denied the accusations. However, Planned Parenthood has maintained that it does not profit from selling fetal tissue and only collects the money to cover the cost of procuring the tissue.
According to the suit, CMP, an anti-abortion group, intentionally misrepresented Planned Parenthood clinics to gain access to clinic records. They also trespassed on health center property and entered clinically sensitive areas, and videotaped staff without regard to patient safety or privacy. The Center for Medical Progress claims that the lawsuit is a criminal enterprise and that Planned Parenthood violated federal law.
Center for Medical Progress
The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) is a public benefit corporation that is comprised of citizen journalists and active anti-abortion groups. The lawsuit was filed in January in federal court in San Francisco and has drawn criticism for its secret recordings of clinic employees. According to the lawsuit, CMP secretly recorded staff at Planned Parenthood clinics and sold fetal organs to medical companies. The lawsuit alleges that the CMP violated federal regulations and the Freedom of Information Act.
The Center for Medical Progress filed a lawsuit against Daleiden and Merritt after a grand jury found them guilty of violating their First Amendment rights. The Center for Medical Progress’s lawsuit argues that the two employees were acting in their official capacities as citizen journalists and protected by the First Amendment. Daleiden and Merritt are accused of presenting fake California driver’s licenses to obtain abortions and other services, which is prohibited under federal law.
The Center for Medical Progress also filed a defamation suit against PPFA and Thomas More Society over undercover videos of Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of fetal body parts. The Center for Medical Progress lawsuit alleges that the videos were not made up and that the company was unaware of the videos. Planned Parenthood, however, admitted that the videos were true and denied that they had lied to the court.
The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) and former activist David Daleiden are suing each other for violating federal laws governing racketeering and deceptive business practices. Daleiden and Merritt defrauded the Center for Medical Progress by infiltrating conferences and meeting locations of the abortion industry, using fictitious company names and false documentation to avoid detection. The Center for Medical Progress is also accused of recording meetings with abortion providers using hidden cameras.
The CMP is a non-profit public benefit corporation, and the plaintiffs are citizen journalists who are active in anti-abortion groups. Daleiden lives in California and has filed a lawsuit. According to the lawsuit, Daleiden’s actions and the attacks on Planned Parenthood’s health centers resulted in a hostile atmosphere in Louisiana, which led to increased attacks against Planned Parenthood health centers.
A lawsuit filed by the National Abortion Federation and the Center for Medical Progress against David Daleiden, an anti-abortion activist, was recently resolved in a court of law. According to the lawsuit, Daleiden illegally infiltrated NAF meetings using false identification and unlawful recording devices. The lawsuit also found Daleiden guilty of contempt of court. This case is an important step in the fight against anti-abortion extremists.
