Charges Dropped in Case Against Planned Parenthood Whistle Blowers

In an encouraging turn of events, the pro-life activists who caught Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of baby parts on video were cleared of all charges today.

It’s been a grueling process for David Robert Daleiden and Sandra Merritt to clear their names after a Texas court called upon to investigate Planned Parenthood turned on the pro-life activists and indicted them for illegal behavior while procuring the videos. One charge on Daleiden was dropped earlier this summer, and the second one being dropped now means victory has come.

According to the Houston Chronicle, Daleiden and Merritt “were indicted by a Harris County grand jury in January, accused of tampering with a government record for allegedly using fake driver licenses to conceal their identities while dealing with a Houston Planned Parenthood clinic.” The two were also charged with attempting to buy human organs.

In a surprising turn of events, prosecutors dismissed the charges before a hearing on the legitimacy of the indictment could be conducted.

Daleiden and his attorneys are claiming a win for the pro-life movement.
