ARLINGTON, VA (Sept. 29, 2016) — Statement from Lila Rose, president and founder of pro-life organization Live Action, on California Attorney General Kamala Harris working with Planned Parenthood to write a law to criminalize undercover journalism of its facilities:
“Instead of investigating Planned Parenthood for trafficking in baby body parts, Kamala Harris reportedly has been secretly working with Planned Parenthood to write a law to criminalize the very investigative journalism that exposed those horrific injustices.
“Planned Parenthood is dismembering preborn children through abortion, and its CEO, Cecile Richards, even admitted in a letter to Congress that the corporation had accepted $60 for each child’s organ it had harvested.
“It is indefensible that California’s top law enforcer would work with Planned Parenthood to jail journalists and whistleblowers who record and share footage that exposes the abortion chain potentially breaking the law.
“As attorney general, Kamala Harris is supposed to represent the people and uphold the law. Instead, these emails show Harris is more interested in brazenly attacking the First Amendment and helping Planned Parenthood hide human rights abuses and potentially illegal and abusive activity from public view.”
