MADELINE OSBURN OF THE FEDERALIST WRITES: Judge Suppresses Evidence Of Baby Body Part Trafficking In Planned Parenthood Trial: ‘We’re not going into the truth of abortion procedures. I’ve excluded that,’ said Judge William Orrick during the trial of Planned Parenthood v. David Daleiden. Over the last two weeks in the ongoing federal civil jury trial of Planned Parenthood against David Daleiden, Judge William Orrick has repeatedly cut off defence questioning that he considers straying too close to eliciting information related to Planned Parenthood’s history of selling tissue from aborted fetuses.

LAURETTA BROWN OF NATIONAL CATHOLIC REGISTER WRITES: Despite Obstacles, Daleiden Trial Shows Gruesome Side of the Abortion Industry: The civil trial of the pro-life undercover journalist and his colleagues, who are being sued by Planned Parenthood over the undercover videos they released in 2015, is currently underway in San Francisco.
Allegations of Bias
Peter Breen, vice president and senior counsel at the Thomas More Society, told the Register about some of the difficulties Daleiden is facing in the civil case.
Breen said that the judge in the case, U.S. district court Judge William Orrick, “tied our hands on the evidence presentation,” pointing out that he is excluding the testimony of medical experts like Dr Forrest Smith, a practising abortionist and OB-GYN, who testified in the criminal preliminary hearing last month that Planned Parenthood appeared to be modifying abortion techniques to result in live births and more intact organs.
“The judge is still going to allow a lawyer to get on the stand and talk about all sorts of violence against abortion providers over the last 40 years,” he pointed out. “We think that’s outrageous; we fought that ruling. We’re going to continue to challenge it, but, again, that’s where we are. In the civil case, we are much more limited in our evidence presentation than we were in the criminal case.”
Thomas Brejcha, the president and founder of the Thomas More Society, also told the Register that Orrick has excluded a great deal of evidence in the case, including the undercover videos, because “the opposition objected that it would be prejudicial to Planned Parenthood and the other plaintiffs. The prejudice would outweigh any probative value.”
“It really is an anomaly,” he emphasized. “The anomaly is that while the other side testifies to the impact of the videos on Planned Parenthood — that they were scary, they were upset — our jury wasn’t allowed to see them.”
Daleiden’s attorneys made an unsuccessful attempt to have Orrick removed from the case, based on his wife’s apparent support for Planned Parenthood on social media and the fact that Orrick is a founder and officer of the Good Samaritan Family Resource Center (GSFRC), an organization that partners with Planned Parenthood and had a Planned Parenthood business incorporated on its premises while Orrick served as secretary and counsel to the organization.
“Despite all these adverse rulings — the judge is no fan of ours; we moved to have him recused earlier — we are achieving breakthroughs that are having an impact on the jury,” Brejcha said. “While it’s an uphill struggle, we’re not without hope that some degree of justice might be accomplished here.” Read Full Article Here
THOMAS MORE SOCIETY WRITES: DAVID DALEIDEN’S CRIMINAL SHOW TRIAL IN CALIFORNIA WILL DRAG INTO THE LIGHT MORE OF PLANNED PARENTHOOD’S DARK CRIMINALITY: The saga of David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress continues to shed new light on the dark criminality of Planned Parenthood and its political accomplices. The filing of criminal charges in California on March 28 against Mr. Daleiden and Sandra Merritt opened a new window on the abortion empire, further revealing how tightly some politicians on the left are locked in the grip of Big Abortion.
The new Attorney General of California, Xavier Becerra, has received campaign funds from Planned Parenthood’s deep pockets and was publicly acclaimed by Planned Parenthood when he recently was appointed. In less than two months after taking office as the A.G., he filed 15 felony counts against the individuals who last year exposed Planned Parenthood’s criminality. I am a former federal prosecutor and served as the chief of one of the criminal divisions of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Phoenix. From a law-enforcement perspective, A.G. Becerra’s move makes no sense. No serious prosecutor would have filed these charges. Only a politician would. Read the full op-ed here.
