David Daleiden Explains How Discredited Sting Taught Him To Confront The 'Enemy' Of Planned Parenthood
SUBMITTED BY: Miranda Blue, Monday 10/19/2015, 2:32pm
As we explored in our recent report on the Center for Medical Progress’ attacks on Planned Parenthood, CMP founder David Daleiden worked in concert with a few longtime anti-choice activists in his effort to claim that Planned Parenthood violated federal laws with its fetal tissue donation program. One of those activists was Mark Crutcher, who through his Texas-based group Life Dynamics, conducted a very similar undercover video “sting” of fetal tissue donation practices in the late 1990s, with a similar goal of undermining legal abortion. Crutcher’s claims fell apart... MORE >

Troy Newman, the head of the anti-choice group Operation Rescue and a driving force behind the recent attacks on Planned Parenthood, made news this week when he was barred from entering Australia after a member of parliament raised concerns that his extremism “would cause significant harm to our community.” Operation Rescue is understandably upset with the decision, and is taking advantage of the controversy to gin up plenty of publicity for itself. But the group has also taken exception to some of the Australian MP’s complaints, specifically claiming that Newman has... MORE >

This summer, a group called the Center for Medical Progress began to release a series of videos from an undercover “investigation” which it claimed showed that Planned Parenthood “sells aborted baby parts” for profit. Since then, those claims have been roundly debunked, but the stir created by CMP’s videos has led to votes on defunding Planned Parenthood in the House and Senate and in several states, multiple House hearings (including one happening right now) and the threat of a government shutdown, and even contributed to the...

The anti-abortion movement has been attempting to remake itself in recent years as a kinder, gentler cause more concerned with women’s health than with the apocalyptic warnings associated with the movement's more extreme fringes. The recent set of videos smearing Planned Parenthood by falsely alleging that the women’s health organization sells fetal tissue for profit are part of this trend. Although the videos, produced by the so-called Center for Medical Progress, have prompted investigations in several states (none of which have turned up any wrongdoing) and even a... MORE >

In an interview with Religious Right broadcaster Jerry Newcombe earlier this month, Operation Rescue president Troy Newman declared that the series of videos smearing Planned Parenthood that he helped produce were God’s answer to the prayers of anti-abortion activists, sent in order to make “the abortion industry collapse in front of us under their own weight of sin.” “We’re clearly winning on this issue because I think it’s the most preeminent issue that God wants us to be involved in,” Newman said. “The taking of innocent life is, I think,...

A ProPublica investigation published in the Washington Post today looks at the sophisticated data collection methods used by abortion-clinic protesters to gather information about abortion providers, which has occasionally led to the identities of abortion patients being publicly exposed against their will. “In recent years, abortion opponents have become experts at accessing public records such as recordings of 911 calls, autopsy reports, and documents from state health departments and medical boards, then publishing the information on their Web sites,” writes ProPublica...

As the Senate prepares to vote this afternoon on a bill to strip federal funds from Planned Parenthood, People For the American Way has released a new report detailing the activists behind the latest round of attacks on the women’s health organization, their ideology and ultimate goals. A group called the Center for Medical Progress has promised to release a dozen videos that it claims show that Planned Parenthood is “selling baby parts” for profit. That claim is easily debunked, but as PFAW details, the specific accusations are only part of the point: The latest... MORE >
Troy Newman: 'Cruella De Vil' Nancy Pelosi Defends Abortion Providers' 'Pedophile Protection Rackets'

Troy Newman, the leader of Operation Rescue and one of the anti-abortion activists behind the new set of Planned Parenthood smear videos, joined VCY America’s “Crosstalk” program to discuss his debunked accusations that the woman’s health organization is selling “baby parts” for profit. Newman targeted House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi — or, as he called her, “Cruella de Vil” — for coming to the defense of Planned Parenthood and calling for an investigation into his group, the Center for Medical Progress. “This is a classic...
