All charges dropped against duo that made fake Planned Parenthood video

All charges dropped against duo that made fake Planned Parenthood video July 26, 2016

David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt, the anti-abortion activists who made the fake Planned Parenthood video claiming that the organization was selling baby parts for profit, a video that inspired a Planned Parenthood shooting in Colorado, have had all charged dropped against them.

According to Law Newz:

Both were charged with second degree felony tampering with a governmental record for allegedly using fake identification cards to hide their real identities when making the videos. Daleiden was also charged with a misdemeanor for allegedly attempting to purchase human organs.

During a hearing on Tuesday morning, the Harris County District Attorney’s Office made a surprise announcement, dropping all charges against the filmmakers.

Details about why such a move was made are unknown at this time. Though this is certainly going to be seen as a victory for the anti-abortion advocates who are willing to lie, cheat, and steal to stop abortions, even breaking federal laws that they now know they can get away with.
