Right To Life hero to speak April 29 in Ann Arbor
Ann Arbor, MI. The young man responsible for producing undercover videos that caught high-level Planned Parenthood officials discussing the harvesting and selling of aborted baby body parts will be the guest for a Citizens for a Pro-Life Society fundraiser, Friday, April 29th, at Christ the King Parish, 4000 Ave Maria Drive, Ann Arbor, MI.
Doors open at 6:30. The event also features a concert by well-known musician Eric Genuis.
In the last 10 months David Daleiden has become one of the most high-profile, controversial figures of the pro-life movement as a consequence of videos he produced through the Center for Medical Progress. www.centerformedicalprogress.org In these videos, first made public in June 2015, Planned Parenthood executives and staff members discuss the harvesting and sale of aborted baby body parts–body parts made available to biologics companies such as Stem Express.
Abortionist Deborah Nucatola, for instance describes, while eating salad and sipping red wine, how aborted baby body parts are salvaged from abortion procedures, which parts are most in demand, and how the abortion procedure is altered in order to maximize the harvesting of body parts. Other CMP videos actually take the viewer into the backrooms of Planned Parenthood clinics where, in bone-chilling images, technicians rummage through the dismembered bodies of freshly aborted babies to display which organs are in demand and placed for sale.

David Daleiden’s videos placed Planned Parenthood on the defensive in which the abortion giant was publically forced to explain their aborted baby body parts harvesting policies. Cecile Richard, CEO of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, even mounted a You Tube video in which she claimed her organization broke no laws and even apologized for Dr. Nucatola’s insensitive “tone” when she discussed fetal parts harvesting. In addition, Richards was called to testify at hearings in a congressional investigation of Planned Parenthood.
Daleiden’s videos also resulted in an unprecedented congressional vote to defund Planned Parenthood of its $500,000 plus tax-payer support, a bill that was quickly vetoed by President Obama. However, as a consequence of Daleiden’s efforts, 12 states thus far have removed state funding from Planned Parenthood.
Daleiden’s appearance at the CPLS event is the first time the pro-life leader has visited Michigan. Friday’s event is expected to be well attended and also likely counter-protested by supporters of Planned Parenthood. One of Daleiden’s videos featured Lisa Harris who performs abortions at the Ann Arbor Planned Parenthood. Harris admits to harvesting “orbits” (the eyeballs of aborted babies) and making them available to “researchers” for grant payments. The Michigan Attorney General has been call upon to investigate Harris for possible violations of state and federal law.
Daleiden himself has paid a high price for his stealth videos as he faces legal battles–namely three civil suits and one criminal action, all in current litigation. If convicted, Daleiden, considered a hero within the pro-life ranks, may face serious fines as well as jail time.
Monica Migliorino Miller, who invited Daleiden to speak for her group’s fundraiser states:
“Planned Parenthood and its supporters have done their best to discredit the CMP videos, in-particular claiming that they were “highly-edited.” This is simply a shallow attempt to divert attention away from the pitiful facts clearly presented in the videos. No amount of editing can ever dismiss the words of violence used by Planned Parenthood abortion providers as they discuss the gruesome abortion procedures themselves–nor can they dismiss the horrific images of their own abortion clinic staff rummaging through very obviously human body parts in a complete, final denigration of human life. Those are images from which Planned Parenthood simply cannot run–and they will forever be a tragic testimony to the gross injustice of abortion.
The dark secret of abortion’s innate violence has been exposed and if nothing else, this imagery alone is a great fruit of the Daleiden videos.”
We thank Daleiden for his efforts and the risks he took in getting the following videos.
