Lila Rose’s Statement on California indicting David Daleiden:
“It is a sad day when the justice system is manipulated by the rich and powerful to protect the guilty and punish the innocent.” – Lila Rose, President and Founder of Live Action
Washington, DC –On Nov. 15, a federal jury ruled that pro-life leader David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress undercover investigators caused “substantial harm” to Planned Parenthood by exposing the abortion industry’s corrupt practice of harvesting aborted baby body parts– and awarded punitive damages to Planned Parenthood of $870,000. The jury released its verdict after deliberating less than two days, even though the landmark civil trial took six weeks.
Lila Rose, President and Founder of Live Action, responds:
“David Daleiden and those who helped to expose Planned Parenthood’s gruesome baby body parts trafficking scheme should immediately appeal today’s guilty verdict, which surely belongs instead to the $1.5 billion dollar abortion corporation that kills over 900 preborn children every day. Planned Parenthood Judge Orrick – who has well-documented ties to the organization – was clearly incapable of seeing the true criminals here, who are those engaged in the harvesting and sale of the body parts of preborn children. It is a sad day when the justice system is manipulated by the rich and powerful to protect the guilty and punish the innocent.”
