‘Information suppression!’ Judge puts a lid on some new Planned Parenthood video releases

Powered by Topple

A California judge has granted a temporary restraining order that prohibits the Center for Medical Progress from releasing any video that includes mention of a private company that has purchased aborted baby parts from Planned Parenthood.

The order, issued by a Los Angeles Superior Court judge, could put the brakes on the pro-life group’s plans to reveal more disturbing aspects of Planned Parenthood’s business, following the release of three undercover videos exposing high-ranking abortion executives’ discussing prices for “fetal tissue.”

The order is in effect until an August 19 hearing.

The company that sought the order, StemExpress, is a medical research firm that has purchased “fetal tissue” from Planned Parenthood in the past, and at least three company executives are believed to be the focus of new undercover videos shot by the Center for Medical Progress, according to the Sacramento Bee.

The order was requested shortly after the release of the center’s most recent video, which featured a former StemExpress employee discussing the company’s relationship with Planned Parenthood and offering graphic descriptions of work inside its lab.

In a statement Wednesday, center leader David Daleiden said StemExpress was using “meritless litigation” to cover up an “illegal baby parts trade.”

Planned Parenthood has insisted it is not worried about the content of more soon-to-be-released undercover videos, but social media users said the court tussle was evidence of “information suppression” by the abortion industry and its supporters in the judiciary.
