Free speech at stake in NAF lawsuit against CMP as judge is set to issue opinion

A federal judge has ruled that secret recordings from a pro-life group who infiltrated a National Abortion Federation meeting to expose a grisly baby parts harvesting operation does not show criminal activity, according to a report by the Associated Press.

Deb Van Derhei NAF Harvesting babies

In July, the National Abortion Federation (NAF) sued the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) accusing CMP of using fake names, infiltration, and hidden cameras to obtain the damning evidence. San Francisco Judge William Orrick granted NAF a temporary restraining order to prevent the release of the tapes. But, while the effort to suppress the videos were making their way through the courts,GotNews.com published them, claiming they were leaked to them by a hacker.

In their lawsuit, NAF claimed that CMP infiltrators “snuck into” their allegedly secure and supposedly private meetings to obtain video evidence that their members were buying fetal tissue. In response to the lawsuit, CMP claimed that their investigators conducted their investigation legally, and that NAF welcomed lead investigator David Daleiden and the other investigators as dealers in fetal tissue believing that Daleiden’s test company, BioMax, would pay abortion providers for fetal specimens. “NAF even provided Daleiden unsolicited information about the meeting’s agenda and location,” attorney’s for CMP stated.

But, according to the AP report, Judge Orrick does not agree. From the story:

Recordings secretly made by an anti-abortion group at meetings of abortion providers do not show criminal activity and could put the providers at risk, a federal judge said Friday, citing the recent shooting at a Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic.

U.S. District Judge William Orrick made the comments during a hearing over the National Abortion Federation’s request for a preliminary injunction that would continue to block the release of the recordings. Orrick did not immediately issue a ruling. He previously issued a temporary restraining order blocking the recordings pending the outcome of the preliminary injunction hearing.

Pro-lifers who have viewed the leaked tapes say that the NAF lawsuit is equivalent to censorship because NAF does not want the public to know the truth about abortion. The videos show plenty of evidence that NAF members were not only involved in harvesting fetal tissue but were holding presentations about the process during their meetings. A sampling of a few of the recordings show that NAF members:

    Conference attendees applauding horrific late-term abortion procedure
    NAF held presentations on harvesting aborted baby parts
    NAF members and a majority of the women they service know they are killing a baby
    Abortion clinics dispose of preborn children in garbage disposals
    Burning aborted babies for energy fuel may really be happening
    A cold and callous disregard for the dead
    A Planned Parenthood abortionist and NAF attendee admitted being involved in fetal tissue research with, “independent / individual researchers”

Continuing with the AP report:

Orrick made a statement that doctors who appeared in CMP’s videos have received death threats. He also cited suspected arson at abortion clinics and the November shooting at the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood clinic that left three people dead and nine wounded.

Catherine Short, an attorney for the Center for Medical Progress, said there was no evidence the Colorado shooter was motivated by the group’s videos or that doctors have been directly threatened. The release of the recordings is vital to furthering public discussion about topics such as whether the country’s abortion laws are too loosely written, she said. The center says in court documents its work is the equivalent of investigative journalism and protected by the First Amendment.

And, Short is correct, investigative journalism is not only protected by the First Amendment but the tactics used by CMP have been used by journalists in all sorts of investigations as Live Action News has detailed here. In fact, free speech issues in this case are so great that the U.S. Reporters’ Committee filed a ‘friend of the Court’ submission before the district court hearing NAF’s case, protesting that ‘any prior restraint on speech that is issued by a court has the potential to significantly affect the First Amendment rights of the news media and the public at large.’

we are compelled to write at this early juncture because any prior restraint on speech that is issued by a court has the potential to significantly affect the First Amendment rights of the news media and the public at large. The ramifications of having such a restraint in place go well beyond the unique facts of this dispute, they wrote.

Tom Brejcha, Thomas More Society President and Chief Counsel which presented arguments against NAF in the case agreed accusing NAF of working with Planned Parenthood to suppress Daleiden’s First Amendment rights.

“Equally as any other investigative journalist working for ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox News, or your local print or electronic media outlet may regularly resort to undercover journalism tactics to ferret out hidden crime, so too David Daleiden should have the right to penetrate the criminal underworld of America’s abortion providers and report all the evidence he has uncovered of criminal wrongdoing to law enforcement and to members of the public.”

The brief that Thomas More Society and co-counsel have filed on behalf of Daleiden in opposition to NAF’s preliminary injunction includes:

    Information about the precedent set by the recent Animal Legal Defense Fund v. Otter case, where the 9th Circuit ruled definitively that investigative journalism is not “fraud” and fully protected by the First Amendment.

    Admissions from NAF and Planned Parenthood abortion providers about their criminal participation in trafficking in aborted baby body parts documented at NAF meetings, redacted from the public filing and prevented from release by court order.

    The blatantly unconstitutional character of prior restraints on speech.

If NAF wins this case, criminals will rejoice and journalists will weep,” Brejcha said.

Both sides are watching for the decision to be released.

NAF abortion doc in hacked vid says abortion is violence and “the fetus matters clinically to us”

A National Abortion Federation meeting caught on video by the Center for Medical Progress has been leaked by a hacker group to youtube.

In the discussion among NAF members at a Michigan Planned Parenthood breakout session of the conference, the providers admit abortion is violent saying, “the fetus matters clinically to us.”

Savita Ginde is a Planned Parenthood abortionist in Colorado recently exposed in a Center for Medical Progress investigation on the harvesting of baby body parts who is also involved in a program to “train” abortion providers.

Interestingly enough, Ginde also sits on the board of the largest organization of abortion providers in the nation, the National Abortion Federation (NAF) which tried to censor CMP’s videos.

NAF claims to publish clinical standards for abortion providers in the country.

Ginde is heard in the video speaking about her ability to alter the abortion method to get, intact fetuses, she calls “specimens” in a way that does not “crush” fetal organs.

Toward the end of the video Ginde is seen inside Planned Parenthood’s path lab poking around the legs and body parts of the aborted children asking the CMP under cover “buyer” if researchers want brains and eyeballs.

Calling broken pieces of the unborn child “war torn”, the Planned Parenthood abortionist points out that “2nd tris” are large enough to just put their hands in and pick out the body parts.

Ginde and her medical assistant then identify heart and kidneys when they laughingly point out that the body they are separating by the most valuable body parts was a boy!

In 2009″ Planned Parenthood bragged that their “clinical research” was enhanced by Ginde writing in a PPRM publication:

    PPRM’s leadership role in advanced reproductive health care and clinical research has significantly grown with the appointment of Dr. Savita Ginde as medical director in 2004. Prior to PPRM, she conducted numerous clinical research trials within the reproductive health care specialty and, fortunately for us, continued this practice upon joining our team.

Adding:

    The Clinical Research division is currently working to increase PPRM’s participation in clinical trials and behavioral and environmental studies. Our goal is to become a research leader within Planned Parenthood Federation of America and to continue providing high quality care to our clients.

Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains recently posted a sign saying that they were “proud” of their “work” go figure!

In addition to sitting on the board of NAF, Ginde is also on the board of Colorado’s Religious Coalition for Reproductive Rights a radically, pro-abortion rights organization, as PPRM’s liaison.

In 2010 alone Savita Ginde, as the Medical Director of Planned Parenthood took in over $269,000 in salary.

Planned Parenthood nightmare: “New York Times Headlines” on aborted baby harvesting of spinal cords and gonads b/c media doesn’t see big picture

Posted in Aborted Baby Body Parts, Abortionist, National Abortion Federation, National Director for the Consortium of Abortion Providers (CAPS), Planned Parenthood abortion description, Planned Parenthood abortionist, Planned Parenthood Employee, Planned Parenthood sells aborted baby parts with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 15, 2015 by saynsumthn

In the latest undercover video from the Center for Medical Progress you get a sense that Planned Parenthood knew, before the videos were even exposed, that if the public got wind of what they were doing it would be a public relations disaster.

Aborted babies from CMP Planned Parenthood vid

Aborted babies from CMP Planned Parenthood vid

In this 10th video you get a sense of the fear that Planned Parenthood had in the possibility that their grisly baby parts operation would generate a possible “New York Times Headline.”

Despite 9 other videos, though, the media has been biased and even protective of the abortion business which gets millions in tax monies each year. However, social media is driving the public outrage over Planned Parenthood’s Mengele-like operation.

Previous videos by the pro-life group have shown Planned Parenthood top staffers haggling over money of the babies they abort. In addition, both Planned Parenthood doctors as well as a former procurement tech from Stem Express are heard describing the horrific way the abortion business harvests organs.

Planned Parenthood Federation of America Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola admitted she would “crush above” or “crush below” the unborn child to protect the specific baby organ she wanted to procure.

Holly ODonnell Planned Parenthood heart face organs abortion

Then there was the horrific description of former StemExpress fetal procurement tech, Holly O’Donnell describing how she was lured into cutting through the face of an intact unborn child whose heart was beating to get brain tissue made me literally sick.

And she has one of her instruments and she just taps the heart, and it starts beating. And I’m sitting here and I’m looking at this fetus, and its heart is beating, and I don’t know what to think,” O’Donnell says in the video.

Carolyn Westoff spinal cords Planned Parenthood baby parts

In the 10th video from CMP, Dr. Carolyn Westhoff, Senior Medical Advisor for PPFA tells what she thinks is a buyer from a Biotech company that the baby body parts most buyers want include spinal cords and gonads among others.

We’ve just been working with people who want particular tissues, like, you know, they want cardiac, or they want eyes, or they want neural,” says Dr. Westhoff to a prospective fetal organ buyer. “Certainly, everything we provide–oh, gonads! Oh my God, gonads. Everything we provide is fresh.”

The sale or purchase of human fetal tissue is a federal felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison or a fine of up to $500,000 (42 U.S.C. 289g-2).

The first thought that came to my mind is, wouldn’t it be nice if, instead of buying spinal cords and gonads from innocent babies, that Congress and every attorney general in the country would get a “spine” and not only defund the baby parts harvesting organization but prosecute them?

Carolyn Westoff abortion volume 2bd tri abortion planned parenthood

At the event where the video is recorded, Westoff who is often quoted as an abortion expert, mentions to CMP that Planned Parenthood’s head of abortion services is there and could discuss the possibility of having their affiliates harvest babies, however, she acknowledges that if this got out to the public it would be a huge PR nightmare.

    “Obviously, we would have the potential for a huge P.R. issue in doing this,” Westoff said before offering to introduce the buyers to “national office abortion people” from Planned Parenthood.

Vanessa Cullins Planned Parenthood aborted baby parts

Dr. Vanessa Cullins, Vice President for External Medical Affairs for PPFA who once said of HPV, “All of us get it,” echoed Westoff’s fears.

    “This is important. This could destroy your organization and us, if we don’t time those conversations correctly,” she tells a prospective buyer.

Deb Van Derhei NAF Harvesting babies

Deborah VanDerhei, National Director for the Consortium of Abortion Providers (CAPS) at PPFA told the “buyer” that she has been talking about harvesting babies to the National Abortion Federation (NAF) and how to figure it all out as an industry and how the abortion clinics should be “compensated.”

CAPS is an influential committee within Planned Parenthood that drives abortion policy across the organization.

In the video, you hear VanDerhei referring to payments for fetal tissue as “donation for remuneration,” which carries the connotation of financial reward or benefit without regard for actual expenses, according to CMP.

    I have been talking to the executive director of the National Abortion Federation, we’re trying to figure this out as an industry, about how we’re going to manage remuneration, because the headlines would be a disaster,” she says.

Planned Parenthood absent policy on aborted baby harvesting'

Despite Planned Parenthood’s repeated denial that they are illegalling selling the organs from babies they abort and then harvest, VanDerhei admitted to the undercover group that her organization is intentionally “absent a policy” but whatever their centers decide they needed to think “New York Times Headline” when creating one.

    “We are absent a policy and that’s relatively intentional. And the policy that we do have suggests that you really think about what you are doing, vet your procurement service, and um, if there’s any way you can do it mission based that that’s probably better.

    “And if you do decide that you want to engage in remuneration, that you really need to like think that through and think “New York Times Headline,” when you’re creating your policy,” the Planned Parenthood “abortion person” said.

If you recall from previous videos, this was reiterated by Planned Parenthood Federation of America Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola who stated clearly that there are no Planned Parenthood guidelines on “tissue procurement” saying “there will never be guidelines.”

Deborah Nucatola Planned Parenthood guidelines baby parts

When asked if there are any guidelines regarding compensation for the aborted tissue i.e. body parts of the human child, Nucatola said, “Nothing is written, there is nothing in stone.

This appeared to be the case because later in the video, the National Director for the Consortium of Abortion Providers (CAPS) at PPFA admitted, “We have independent colleagues who generate a fair amount of income doing this.”

Van Derhei Planned Parenthood harvesting income

VanDerhei suggests that Planned Parenthood goes to great lengths to avoid leaving a paper trail about their fetal tissue activity: “It’s an issue that you might imagine we’re not really that comfortable talking about on email.”

In a conversation recorded between VanDerhei and Vanessa Russo, Compliance Program Administrator for Planned Parenthood Keystone in Pennsylvania, Russo suggested that Planned Parenthood doesn’t need to worry about the “headlines” because they “can’t consent to be bullied by ridiculous laws” and a media that “doesn’t understand the big picture.

Vanessa Russo Planned Parenthood ridiculous laws harvesting baby parts

Adding that she loves the idea of being able to harvest babies for research. Russo said there was too much discussion on ridiculous things and that, “A company like this that wants to give our organization money for the tissue–I think that that’s a valid exchange, and that that’s okay.

VanDerhei, who had a longer history with Planned Parenthood disagreed with Russo’s casual take reminding her that, “A Congressional hearing from, you know, scared the Bejezzus out of people 15 years ago.”

She was referring to an investigation conducted by the pro-life group, Life Dynamics in Denton, Texas which originally exposed the way the abortion industry sells aborted baby parts. ( read here)

In the end, despite all the hurdles, VanDerhei emphasized that she wanted to make sure that when it comes to harvesting baby parts for remuneration, the take-away is “this is a good idea.”

Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in the country, responsible for 327,000 abortions every year, and receives $528 million in taxpayer money each year.

An audit recently conducted on Planned Parenthood Federation of America revealed that they spend over $62 MILLION for just employee compensation including salaries.

David Daleiden, Project Lead for CMP that, “From email black-outs to contorted oxymorons like ‘donation for remuneration,’ the lengths to which Planned Parenthood leadership will go to cover-up their illegal sale of aborted baby parts are nothing less than the desperation of a guilty conscience.”

“Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards openly admits they receive ‘$60 per tissue specimen,’ and their contracts with StemExpress offer payments per fetus ‘determined in the clinic to be usable.’ Planned Parenthood runs their abortion and baby parts business in open disregard for the law and should be prosecuted immediately. Their taxpayer funding should be reassigned to Federally Qualified Health Centers, which provide more and comprehensive health services at locations outnumbering Planned Parenthood 20 to 1.”

NAF’s Trojan Horse: suing pro-life group for something journalists and others have done for years

Posted in Aborted Baby Body Parts, Media Bias, National Abortion Federation, OP-Ed, Planned Parenthood sells aborted baby parts with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 12, 2015 by saynsumthn

It is difficult for the media which has been so admittedly pro-abortion to keep focus, so I will let them in on a little secret:

The recent lawsuit filed by the National Abortion Federation (NAF) against a pro-life group exposing a gruesome baby parts operation is nothing more than a Trojan Horse of distraction.

NAF Tweet CMP

By now we have all seen those undercover videos produced by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) showing Planned Parenthood’s horrific baby parts harvesting operation.

As a result, late last month San Francisco Judge William Orrick granted the National Abortion Federation a temporary restraining writing that NAF would likely suffer irreparable injury absent a temporary restraining order.

NAF Lawsuit Troy Newman

The suit, filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, asks that the Defendants be preliminarily and permanently enjoined from publishing or otherwise disclosing any recordings or confidential information from NAF annual meetings, publishing or otherwise disclosing the names or addresses of any NAF members that they learned at NAF annual meetings, and attempting to gain access to any future NAF meetings.

NAF meetings are one of the only places where abortion providers can come together to learn about the latest research and advances in their field, and network without fear of harassment or intimidation. Many of the attendees are high-profile targets of anti-abortion extremists,” NAF stated in the press release.

FAKE COMPANY

In their lawsuit, NAF claims that CMP created a “fake company” to expose the Planned Parenthood scheme, writing:

    Defendants The Center for Medical Progress (“CMP”), David Daleiden, Troy Newman and individuals acting in concert with them conspired to defraud and did defraud NAF by setting up a fake company (Defendant “Biomax Procurement Services”), which held itself out as a legitimate fetal tissue procurement organization. Daleiden and his cohorts pretended to be officers and employees of their fake company, Biomax Procurement Services. They assumed false identities, used fake driver’s licenses and approached NAF in order to gain access to its annual meetings. Using their fake names and identities, they signed agreements with NAF, agreements designed to protect NAF members from exactly the type of anti-abortion harassment that is the subject of this lawsuit…

Yet, this is just the sort of thing that whistle blowers and investigators do all the time as this 20/20 episode below proves:

As for the use of undercover video, we all know this tactic has been used by journalists for years.

This 20/20 investigation on “Repair Shop Fraud” where a reporter did not “use his real name” is just one example.

There are literally hundreds of these “investigations” out there.

HIDDEN CAMERAS

The NAF lawsuit against the pro-life group also lists CMP’s use of video as a cause to censor their message further:

    In order to gain access to NAF’s annual meetings, they then signed agreements with NAF promising not to record video or audio tape, to only use information learned at NAF’s national meetings to enhance the quality and safety of services provided by NAF members, and not to disclose any information learned at NAF’s annual meetings to any third parties. All of these promises were false and fraudulent when they were made.

Undercover video and hidden cameras are used by the media all the time to produce reports and investigations.

Just one example is this CBS affiliate who went “undercover” inside several Los Angelas restaurants:

Lest you think the tactic of video in undercover investigations is only reserved for law enforcement or journalists, they are not.

In fact, several mission driven non-profits have used under cover investigations to make their case.

As one example, prominent on the Humane Society website is an undercover video exposing the mistreatment of pigs.

Humane Society Pigs

The non-profit praises the effort describing it this way:

    A video from an undercover investigation of a pig factory farm earned both a 2013 Webby People’s Voice Award and a Webby Winner Award. The video, called “Undercover at a Tyson Pig Supplier,” was shot in April 2012 at Wyoming Premium Farms, a pig factory farm in Wheatland, Wyo. that at the time of the investigation was supplying pigs to meat giant Tyson Foods. It shows workers kicking living piglets like soccer balls, swinging sick piglets in circles by their hind legs, striking mother pigs with their fists and repeatedly and forcefully kicking them as they resisted leaving their young. As a result of the exposé, five Wyoming Premium workers recently pleaded guilty to criminal animal cruelty.

NARAL

Even the abortion rights group NARAL which supports Planned Parenthood’s baby parts operation used under cover tactics to sting what they referred to as “fake pregnancy centers”

Writing for RH Reality Blog, Nina Liss-Schultz, explained the process:

    NARAL Pro-Choice California sent women undercover over the past year to more than a quarter of the state’s 167 crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs), gathering information on the quality and kind of services offered by the anti-choice groups that run those facilities, in addition to the experience a person might have using a CPC as a resource during a pregnancy.

Katie STack abortion CPC prolife pregnancy

A report conducted by, Vice News revealed that a committed abortion advocate running a project whose sole purpose is to take down pro-life pregnancy centers, recorded conversations with pro-life counselors using hidden cameras.

The Crisis Project

Katie Stack, who founded The Crisis Project admitted to Vice News that she uses hidden cameras to film the counseling and admitted to using “fake pee” so the counselors would think she was pregnant.

Interestingly, NAF thanked Katie Stack for her work:

NAF Thanks Katie Stack

In October 2011, rather then condemn Stack’s undercover vids as “fake” she was published in the New York Times op-ed section for her critique of crisis pregnancy centers, “When I Needed Help, I Got Propaganda.”

David Daleiden Planned Parenthood Center for Medical Progress

Like CMP’s David Daleiden, Stack is also a young person in her twenties. However, because she was attacking the pro-life effort to help women, her undercover “investigation” was praised by the media.

But, as I have stated, the use of hidden cameras for undercover investigations is nothing new. A simple search on “Hidden Camera Investigations” on youtube will prove the tactic is universally used.

FAKE NAMES

NAF also accused CMP investigator’s of using fake names….but…that is also a Trojan Horse when you understand that this tactic is used to expose any number of illegal or unethical actions.

As an aside, The Daily Caller once blogged about the use of fake names by reporters generally ( read here.)

French Journalist

When a French female journalist went undercover to find out why teens were flocking to ISIS by setting up a fake Facebook account and a fake name and persona, CBS praised the effort.

Feminist author Gloria Steinem also used the “undercover” “fake name” tactic to expose Playboy.

Gloria Steinem--_0

In 1963, Steinem went undercover as a Playboy Bunny to experience a bunny’s life in Hugh Hefner’s New York Playboy mansion.

She wrote about her experiences in Show Magazine in an article entitled, “A Bunny’s Tale.”

I’ve decided to call myself Marie Catherine Ochs,” Steinem writes in the story, adding, “I’ve spent the afternoon making up a background for Marie.

INFILTRATE

Aborted babies from CMP Planned Parenthood vid

The NAF lawsuit against CMP complains that the cunning undercover investigators were able to “infiltrate” their “secret” meetings, writing:

    Defendants Daleiden, Newman, CMP, and others associated with the Enterprise, and were willing participants in it. Each had a common purpose and interest in the establishment and operations of the scheme. They also agreed to the manner in which the Enterprise would be conducted, i.e., as evidenced by Daleiden’s own statements, the creation of an admittedly fake company (Biomax Procurement Services) in order to infiltrate by false and fraudulent pretenses NAF’s annual meetings, and to infiltrate the offices and clinics of its constituent members, all for the purposes of portraying NAF and its constituent members in a false light, destroying their professional repuations, and placing NAF members in personal jeopardy. At all relevant times, Daleiden, CMP, Biomax and Newman were generally aware of each other’s conduct in furtherance of the scheme, and were knowing and willing participants in that conduct.

Yet infiltration is also a part of American investigations.
KENNEDY-obit-popup

Stetson Kennedy, who wrote an exposé detailing his infiltration of the Klan called, “I Rode With the Ku Klux Klan,” was noted as a “folklorist and social crusader” by the New York Times upon his death.

After being rejected by the Army because of a bad back, he threw himself into unmasking the Ku Klux Klan as well as the Columbians, a Georgia neo-Nazi group. He was inspired in part by a tale told by an interview subject whose friend had been the victim of a racial murder in Key West,” the New York Times writes.

article-0-1DB51A2900000578-85_634x377Last year an international media outlet reported how a retired black police officer was able infiltrate a branch of the Klu Klux Klan in Colorado.

According to that Daily Mail report:

    Ron Stallworth was an investigator for the Colorado Springs Police Department in 1979 when he answered a newspaper ad placed by a new KKK group, who were looking for local members.

    Writing about the experience in a new book, Black Klansman, Stallworth explains how the hate group not only made him a member, but voted to make him the chapter’s leader after only one year.

    ‘So they took a vote, they took a unanimous vote and they wanted Ron Stallworth to become the leader of the Ku Klux Klan chapter because he was quote loyal and a dedicated Klansman,” Stallowrth told Salt Lake City’s ABC 4.

Gabney church os scientologyEarlier this year, Business Insider reported the way one filmmaker infiltrated the Church of Scientology, writing:

    Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney (“Taxi to the Dark Side,” “Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room”) remembers how he reacted the first time he was offered the chance to do a film on the Church of Scientology.

    “I turned it down,” he told Business Insider…

    Gibney’s approach to secrecy came from his talks with Wright, who used similar methods when he interviewed former church members for his book. “I often used throw-away phones and encrypted email,” he said. “People were so frightened.”

The film was not condemned by the left and even premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.

Interestingly, after the Church of Scientology attempted to discredit his investigation Gibney responded, “They are playing a PR game with them to say, ‘Look at these evil people who are attacking us. Look how valiantly we are trying to defend our organization,‘” he said.

Sound familiar?

As much as the media is crying foul when CMP exposes Planned Parenthood, they remained relatively quiet when the left leaning PETA organization infiltrated a KFC supplier using those infamous undercover videos and posing as a worker for the chicken factory.

Peta infiltrates KFC

A look at NAF’s requirements for becoming a member reveals that the “infiltration” issue is more a culpability on their part than on CMP.

NAF Membership fees

The abortion lobby group promises members:

    Because NAF and our members have been the targets of anti-abortion activity, our application asks for references. Specifically, we ask for references from current NAF members or from other people or institutions known to us. If you have difficulty with this requirement, please call the NAF membership office at 202-667-5881.

Did NAF ask for references or did they allow the pro-life undercover operatives into their inner circle with no or little scrutiny? Whichever is the case, NAF’s first and foremost concern must be their own multi-million dollar pockets. If the CMP vids are released as they should be, the one who should be sued here by anyone who attended their conference is the National Abortion Federation in my view.

naf_logo

But, it’s not just their attendees that are a concern to NAF.

The organization which touts the highest standards for abortion care happens to have as their members the same Planned Parenthood centers now under investigation for possible illegal activity.

A breakdown of each Planned Parenthood exposed by CMP and their ties to NAF are listed below:

Dr GInde Planned ParenthoodThe first CMP video released featured the Vice President and Medical Director of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains (PPRM) in Denver, CO, Dr. Savita Ginde. PPRM is one of the largest and wealthiest Planned Parenthood affiliates and operates clinics in Colorado, New Mexico, Wyoming, and Nevada.

Another shocking video showed Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountains VP & Medical Director Savita Ginde discussing contract details for aborted baby pricing and how not to “get caught.”

Not only was the Denver affiliate of PPRM listed as a NAF Member but so were several others:

Planned Parenthood of Rocky Mountains NAF

planned-parenthood-video-crush-bIn Center for Medical Progress’ first video Dr. Deborah Nucatola head of Planned Parenthood’s medical services department bragged how she would crush above or crush below the desired unborn child’s organ to appease “buyers” of the fetal body parts.

Matry Gatter Planned ParenthoodPlanned Parenthood’s Medical Directors’ Council President Mary Gatter described on tape how she would modify the abortion procedure, performing a “Less Crunchy” technique to obtain more “whole specimens.” Gatter then joked about wanting a Lamborghini. In that second video, Gatter was also caught haggling over payments for intact fetal specimens and offering to use a “less crunchy technique” to get more intact body parts.

Both Gatter and Nucatola are referenced in NAF guidelines on abortion ( read here.)

Alter process intact fetal cadavers Planned ParenthoodThe fifth undercover video in the controversy over Planned Parenthood’s sale of aborted baby parts shows the Director of Research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, Melissa Farrell, advertising the Texas Planned Parenthood branch’s track record of fetal tissue sales, including its ability to deliver fully intact fetuses.

And…the Houston Planned Parenthood abortion center is listed as a NAF member:

NAF Planned Parenthood Houston Baby parts

NAF, with all their talk about high standards, is spending far more time attacking the Center for Medical Progress than investigating the allegations of illegal activity by Planned Parenthood.

Although NAF supports the use of aborted babies for research they claim to require their members to obey all laws regarding their procurement as well as forbidding any monetary compensation, something Planned Parenthood is being accused of doing.

NAF Fetal Tissue donation

NAF says they support fetal tissue donation as long as Federal laws and regulations are observed and according to NAF:

    I.Informed consent for fetal tissue donation may not be obtained until after a patient has given full informed consent for the abortion.
    II.A woman’s decision to donate fetal tissue must be voluntary and uncoerced.Providers must not offer any financial or other incentives to the patient.
    III.Clinics and providers cannot financially gain from their participation in fetal tissue donation. Remuneration is limited to “reasonable payments associated with the transportation, implantation, processing, preservation, quality control, or storage of fetal tissue” (NIH Revitalization Act of 1993).
    IV.Providers cannot change abortion procedures specifically to accommodate fetal tissue collection needs.

In NAF’s Fetal Tissue Donation Position Statement they state:

    NAF requires that all members adhere to the applicable local, state, and federal laws and regulations governing fetal tissue donation…NAF strongly supports existing prohibitions against financial gain from fetal tissue donation.

The American Medical Association also states that no financial benefit should be granted to those who abort the child whose tissue is later donated for research.

It’s time to stop focusing on NAF’s Trojan Horse and start asking why the organization which allegedly creates guidelines and standards for the abortion industry isn’t saying more to condemn Planned Parenthood!

JewelsGreen2015bFormer abortion clinic worker turned ardent pro-life human rights advocate, Jewels Green wrote an interesting piece on this entire scam as well, where she points out that:

    NAF is suing under the Federal Civil RICO statute, civil conspiracy, breach of contract, and various state statutes.

    CMP’s attorneys will no doubt point out that damages for emotional distress or any personal injury claimed by NAF members are not cognizable under civil RICO. See, e.g., Grogan v. Platt, 835 F.2d 844, 846 (11th Cir. 1988); James v. Meow Media, Inc., 90 F. Supp.2d 798, 814 (W.D. Ky. 2000); Moore v. Eli Lilly & Co., 626 F. Supp. 365, 367 (D. Mass. 1986); City and County of San Fransisco v. Philip Morris, 957 F. Supp. 1130, 1138-39 (N.D. Cal. 1997).

    Similarly, “reputational injuries” from alleged defamation are not actionable under RICO. Santana v. Cook County Bd. of Review, 679 F.3d 614, 623 (7th Cir. 2012).

    But this doesn’t mean they won’t try, because…they’re doing it right now.

    This will be an interesting trial because any evidence of a civil conspiracy on CMP’s part will also be evidence of a criminal conspiracy on NAF’s part.

Adding:

    NAF brought the fight, but it plays right into CMP’s hands.

    Why?

    Because the basis for each of NAF’s assertions of fact and law is discoverable.

Should be interesting how this plays out!

NAF files suit to silence pro-life group exposing Planned Parenthood baby parts operation

Posted in Center for Medical Progress, National Abortion Federation with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 31, 2015 by saynsumthn

The National Abortion Federation (NAF) has filed for a request for a preliminary injunction against the group that is exposing Planned Parenthood’s baby parts operation.

(UPDATE: Friday afternoon, San Francisco Judge William Orrick issued the temporary restraining writing that NAF would likely suffer irreparable injury absent a temporary restraining order.)

HMMMM….

The suit filed against, Biomax Procurement Services LLC, The Center For Medical Progress, David Daleiden and Troy Newman of Operation rescue, seeks to prohibit the group from releasing conversations taped at their meetings.

NAF IN BED WITH PLANNED PARENTHOOD DOCS

Naf and NARAL Planned Parenthood docs

The National Abortion Federation is considered by some as the professional voice of the abortion industry. I guess if a federation of child killers could be credible, this would describe NAF.

But, truth be told, both NAF and NARAL are in bed with the two Planned Parenthood docs, and have an investment that would motivate them to preserve now questionable reputations.

NAF Clinical policy Guide 2015 abortion

In NAF’s 2015 Clinical Policy Guidelines

From the document:

    The mission of the National Abortion Federation (NAF) is to ensure safe, legal, and accessible abortion care, which promotes health and justice for women. An important part of this work is to develop and maintain evidence-based guidelines and standards as well as to educate providers in the latest technologies and techniques. NAF’s programs make it possible for women to receive the highest quality abortion care.

    Like its precursors, the 2015 edition of NAF’s Clinical Policy Guidelines (CPGs) establishes clinical policy guidelines, which are developed by consensus, based on rigorous review of the relevant medical literature and known patient outcomes. These guidelines are intended to provide a basis for ongoing quality assurance, help reduce
    unnecessary care and costs, help protect providers in malpractice suits, provide ongoing medical education, and encourage research.

Any guess just who has authored some of this alleged “relevant medical literature?”

Planned Parenthood’s baby parts abortionists!

Dr. Deborah Nucatola head of Planned Parenthood’s medical services department bragged how she will crush above or crush below the desired child’s organ to appease “buyers” of the fetal body parts.

Planned Parenthood’s Medical Directors’ Council President Mary Gatter described on tape how she would modify the abortion procedure, performing a “Less Crunchy” technique to obtain more “whole specimens.” Gatter then joked about wanting a Lamborghini.

And…both are referenced in NAF’s footnotes:

NAF’s lawsuit was announced on the abortion lobby group’s website this morning.

NAF Lawsuit Troy Newman

The suit, filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, asks that the Defendants be preliminarily and permanently enjoined from publishing or otherwise disclosing any recordings or confidential information from NAF annual meetings, publishing or otherwise disclosing the names or addresses of any NAF members that they learned at NAF annual meetings, and attempting to gain access to any future NAF meetings.

NAF meetings are one of the only places where abortion providers can come together to learn about the latest research and advances in their field, and network without fear of harassment or intimidation. Many of the attendees are high-profile targets of anti-abortion extremists,” NAF stated in the press release.

NAF Tweet CMP

The suit claims the pro-life group new dates, times, and locations of NAF meeting and that NAF’s annual meetings have already been referenced in the tapes released thus far, including references to conversations the conspirators had with Dr. Matthew Reeves, NAF’s Medical Director.

OR Responds you must have a lot to hide

A response tweeted by Operation Rescue to NAF reads, “You must have a lot to hide.”

David Daleiden on CNN Planned Parenthood Stem Express

Troy Newman, president of Operation Rescue responded, “How dare a cabal of baby-killers attempt to cast aspersions on my good name when it is they themselves that are ore than likely engaging in the illegal and repulsive practice of trafficking and profiting from fetal organs obtained during abortions.”

The NAF suit claims that it could suffer “irreparable harm” if the videos were made public.

This suit is a panicked attempt to prevent the truth from being told about NAF involvement in profiteering from aborted baby remains,” said Newman.

“It is really a cover-up of potential evidence of their own wrong doing. They obviously have a lot to hide.”

“We will fight to preserve our precious freedom of speech and freedom of the press along with the ability for citizen journalists to engage in investigative journalism. The NAF’s attempt to intimidate us and sue us into silence will not succeed,” Newman added.

Earlier this week, CMP’s Lead investigator spoke about a Stem Express restraining order.

David Daleiden said Stem Express wanted to censor the vids because they showed conversations with the profitable procurement company officials admitting that they get fully intact babies from abortion clinics possibly violating federal law.

The National Abortion Federation and NARAL have come on board the Planned Parenthood talking points parade to ignore the words of two top abortionists and blame the Center for Medical Progress filmmakers who caught them bragging about a gruesome body parts operation.

Interestingly, Gatter opposes women seeing an ultrasound do they can make an informed decision, but she will use an ultrasound to carefully kill an unborn child in an abortion with a “less crunchy” manner in order to procure more “specimens.”
