The Los Angeles Times Editorial Board has blasted California Attorney General Xavier Becerra’s recent criminal indictment of the two pro-life journalists, Sandra “Susan” Merritt and David Daleiden, based on their undercover videos of Planned Parenthood.
The core of the indictment claims that Daleiden and Merritt wrongly recorded alleged “confidential communications” at public conferences and at public restaurants. However, the Wall Street Journal published Noah Rothman’s statement from the Commentary Magazine: “Planned Parenthood’s President Cecile Richards confessed under oath before Congress that these tapes were recorded in ‘a nonconfidential area.'”
The Los Angeles Times Editorial Board also blasted Attorney General Becerra, writing: “It's disturbingly aggressive for Becerra to apply this criminal statute to people who were trying to influence a contested issue of public policy.”
Each of the Planned Parenthood organizations featured in undercover video recordings released by the Center for Medical Progress clearly indicate the illegal trafficking of aborted baby body parts for profit to three organ procurement organizations, including StemExpress, LLC, Advanced Bioscience Resources, Inc. and Novogenix Laboratories, LLC.
