The hearing for Planned Parenthood v. Center for Medical Progress has finally concluded, and it will now go before a jury (who have been ordered by the judge that they cannot even see the CMP videos). There is a LOT to unpack in this historic case – and it’s a lot bigger story than the media is giving it credit for.
Planned Parenthood brought forth their entire stash of intimidation tactics and legal force against David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress following the release of their undercover videos… only to completely flounder at the hearings.

Every word captured in the undercover videos was true. Planned Parenthood alters abortion methods, births babies alive, and dissects them for the freshest little organs possible. And they make money doing it. All of this was laid out plainly during the hearings, even from the video subjects themselves.
Troy Newman, a board member for Center for Medical Progress who has been present throughout the hearings, composed a fantastic reflection after the last day of the hearing.
Reflection of a CMP Board Member
Here is my gut reaction as I sit here waiting on 10 people to decide my financial future.
After sitting in court for every minute of testimony for six and a half weeks as a defendant in the Planned Parenthood vs. Center for Medical Progress, et al $20 million lawsuit… here is my first major takeaway.
Think back four years ago to when we first released the Center for Medical Progress videos. Through multiple YouTube posts, we exposed #PlannedParenthoodSellsBabyBodyParts.
Planned Parenthood Started Off Strong
At once, Planned Parenthood went into full-blown attack mode. They hired FusionGPS (yes, THE FusionGPS) to discredit the videos. Every news channel parroted the same lines: “misleading, highly edited, discredited, manipulated,” and PP’s public relations firms kicked into high gear insisting that PP does not sell baby parts, babies are not born alive, and that abortion procedures are not modified to get better fetal body parts.
Planned Parenthood claimed total innocence and that CMP were the liars.
Within a few months, Planned Parenthood filed a massive and crippling lawsuit that has exhausted us for the past 4 years. The lawsuit included (RICO) Racketeering, fraud, unfair business practices, wiretapping, trespass, defamation, etc. Total bill was in the neighborhood of $20,000,000 dollars.
Then, We Called Their Bluff
But then the trial happened. For 6 long weeks, PP brought in their heavy hitters, their experts, and their abortionist ghouls. And then the unthinkable happened: they dropped their defamation and liable claims and brought the amount they were demanding down to about $600k. Turns out, Planned Parenthood DOES kill babies and sell their little organs for profit!
Planned Parenthood presented NO EVIDENCE that proved babies were not killed and their body parts harvested. In fact, the contrary happened. Experts from “tissue procurement companies” (TPC) were brought in and testified they have current contracts with Planned Parenthood to buy brains, livers, lungs, and other “tissue”. Stem Express is still very much in bed with Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood never once refuted the claim that abortion methods were altered in order to get more intact specimens.
Then, the second hammer dropped on their heads. Planned Parenthood was forced to concede that ALL the words spoken by the abortionists in the CMP videos were, in fact, true. FusionGPS was nowhere to be found! No “forensic evidence” that videos were tampered or audio spliced. No testimony about how the videos were altered, or edited to say things the “doctors” didn’t really say.
Deborah “Wine and Dine” Nucatola graced our courtroom and told the world she was “proud” of what she said and would not recant one word of what she said on tape. It was all true – livers for Lamborginis, lungs, hearts, brains, muscle, and all other fetal tissue are up for sale at your local Planned Parenthood.
Even Planned Parenthood Can’t Cover Up This Mess
At the end of this long trial, the only thing Planned Parenthood has left is hurt feelings. They got caught with one hand inside a dead baby and the other hand inside a checkbook. This lawsuit is nothing more than revenge for being caught in the act.
Planned Parenthood wants all the tax dollars they can stuff in their purse, but wants the gory details of their butcher shop to remain under lock and key. “Give us money, but definitely don’t ask any questions.”
Even though our judge blocked the jury from seeing the CMP videos (absurd in and of itself), just enough of the truth came out for the jury (and recorded into the record for our appeal) to prove that Planned Parenthood are loud and proud about their baby-killing-baby-body-selling scheme.
As they say in court, to summarize; Planned Parenthood had no claim for defamation or liable. It is now a proven fact that Planned Parenthood kills babies, by any means necessary, and sells the organs. Additionally, the Center for Medical Progress videos are an accurate representation of Planned Parenthood’s abortionists and executives. Planned Parenthood just doesn’t like their dirty secrets exposed.
