Obama-appointed judge, and reported bundler for president, halts release of Planned Parenthood videos

PP-vidA federal judge has granted a restraining order temporarily barring the release of additional undercover videos directed against Planned Parenthood officials.

The order was in response to pleadings by the National Abortion Federation, which alleged that a pro-life group, the Center for Medical Progress, had recorded its footage in an unethical and unlawful manner, according to The Associated Press.

U.S. District Judge William H. Orrick III, an Obama appointee,  issued the temporary restraining order Friday in San Francisco.

The federation says the center infiltrated its meetings and recorded its members. The group says release of any audio or video would put providers in danger.

In his three-page order, Orrick said the federation would likely suffer irreparable injury absent the temporary restraining order.

The Center for Medical Progress has previously released videos showing Planned Parenthood leaders discussing the use of aborted fetuses for research.

“The safety and security of our members is our top priority,” said the NAF’s president, Vicki Saporta. “That security has been compromised by the illegal activities of a group with ties to those who believe it is justifiable to murder abortion providers. CMP went to great lengths to infiltrate our meetings as part of a campaign to intimidate and attack abortion providers.”

According to Twitchy:

Judge Orrick, a “huge Democratic donor” and bundler for President Obama, was appointed by President Obama to the bench after a recommendation from Planned Parenthood cheerleader Sen. Barbara Boxer.

Orrick’s judgeship was approved by the Senate in 2013 after a lengthy confirmation battle by a vote of 56-41, with GOP Senators Susan Collins (Maine), Jeff Flake (Ariz.) and Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) voting to confirm.


The center responded with its own statement Friday.

“The Center for Medical Progress follows all applicable laws in the course of our investigative journalism work,” the group said. “The National Abortion Federation is a criminal organization that has spent years conspiring with Planned Parenthood on how to violate federal laws on partial-birth abortion and fetal tissue sales.

“The Center for Medical Progress will contest any attempts to suppress our First Amendment rights to free speech or silence the freedom of the citizen press,” the organization added.

The center has released four undercover videos so far — the latest on Tuesday — each depicting Planned Parenthood executives bartering for the sale of harvested organs of aborted fetuses.

The Senate will vote Monday on a measure to totally defund Planned Parenthood, which receives in excess of a half-billion dollars in federal funds.

The White House has threatened to veto any attempt by Congress to defund the abortion giant, prompting these tweets:

    Certain trolls on these boards claim the videos were all edited to make PP look bad. IF that were the case, why not show them in their entirety and prove to the world that the PP is really a bunch of great guys? They know what is on those tapes and they dare not release them in full or that house of cards will come down forever.

    There are many, including the founder of this evil organization, who need PP to get rid of babies conceived by the poor and minorities.

    What exactly did its founder say:

    And in 1939, Sanger went to work “cultivating the garden.” She initiated the Negro Project to weed out the unfit from the black population. In bringing birth control to the then largely poor (i.e. unfit) population of the South, with a few influential black ministers promoting the project as the solution to poverty, Sanger hoped to significantly reduce the black population. Martin Luther King, Sr., as the eldest son of nine children born into poverty in a family of sharecroppers, would have made the perfect target for “elimination.” But his birth had already taken place.

    In her later years, Sanger still believed that there were people “who never should have been born at all.” In a 1957 interview with Mike Wallace, she said, “I think the greatest sin in the world is bringing children into the world – that have disease from their parents, that have no chance in the world to be a human being practically. Delinquents, prisoners, all sorts of things just marked when they’re born. That to me is the greatest sin – that people can – can commit.”

    Make note of the fact that she spoke to the KKK at one time and was an enormous hit and received many speaking engagements as a result.

      Despite the best efforts of the Left, crime in America was trending downwards. I do not know what the stats are post-Obama and I trust nothing that is reported by this administration anyway. However, there is good indication that the decrease in crime is closely tied to the standard method of retroactive birth control used by the “Disadvantaged”.

      1. Marilyn Z says:

        Can’t disagree with that, but best stay away from the areas where *retroactive birth control* is in wide use.

    Another Obama appointed feces slinging monkey, need we say more besides tar and feather the SOB and ride him out of town on a rail.

    I sure hope Center for Medical Process appeals this bogus ruling. The taxpayers have a right to see every second of those tapes!

    1. Sparkle Plenty says:

      Did ya know that PP is a non-profit? So that means they’re tax exempt. Meanwhile our hard earned tax dollars are going to them to be funneled to the Dems. Sweet deal wouldn’t you say? No wonder the Dems are so silent on the carnage taking place.

      1. libertyluvur says:

        Yup, incredible. And similarly, unions force members to pay “dues” which are funneled directly to dems.

  4. Mex Seiko says:

    Si, PP engages in the illegal practice of human body parts trade and the immoral gloating of it. Then CMP “illegally and unethically” engages in the secret recording and showing the videos. Now, there’s no accusations of the illegality of the recordings but there is an injunction to stop showing the videos because it may endanger the security of the mass murderers? What about the safety of the babies.

    Not only should we demand the defunding of PP we audit total refund of all tax money since the beginning of this illegal practice. Also, the IRS should audit all profits from illegalities and all women who sign any consents unaware.

    1. Sparkle Plenty says:

      I’m sure that CMP has crossed all their t’s and dotted all their i’s before embarking on this endeavor.

  5. CoonOkie says:

    Well who would have ever thought that a demo_rat judge would have sided with what was right. She did just what she was supposed to do to protect the crimes of the liberal, communist, socialist, demo_rats that are in Washington.

  6. No Surprise here….The LIBERAL JUDGE was Appointed by the DC DICTATOR….and Resides in SAN-FRAN-FRUIT-CAKE-VILLLE…

  7. Sparkle Plenty says:

    What’s the problem PP? If you’re not breaking any laws, or doing anything unethical, immoral, repulsive, inhumane, or despicable then why the pleading to have the videos shut down? Maybe because you’re guilty of every single one of these things and it’s getting exposure, finally. Finally, the American People are seeing you in all your disgusting, gory glory and you’re in panic mode. Hope CMP ignores this Judge and releases every one of these videos. Even though I don’t know how much more I can take, if it gets these murderous butchers shut down I’m willing to endure them.

  8. Today22011 says:

    A new judge is required.
    The Judge W. Orrick III should excuse himself . He is not a disinterested party .

  9. Jerry says:

    Just paying for his judgeship.

    obmamer has them all over covering his ass.

    One more reason for no more lifetime appointments for federal judges. Along with term limits for Congress Critters we might still save the Nation.
