Undercover Journalist David Daleiden Is Being Hit With Felony Charges From Planned Parenthood AKA Planned Baby Murder Inc. All in the Name of Progressive Wisdom…
David Daleiden, who came to national prominence as the undercover investigative journalist who exposed Planned Parenthood’s alleged illegal sale of preborn remains, has filed a defamation suit against the abortion business in New York City.
It’s the latest step in the five-year-long legal battle between the pro-life activist and Planned Parenthood and its allies.
Part of the basis for this legal filing is that while Planned Parenthood publicly stated that Daleiden’s videos were doctored and untrue, it was an entirely different situation once the abortion business and its employees were under oath.
In an official statement on the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) website, Daleiden said, “Planned Parenthood admits my videos are true when under oath in federal court, but when speaking to the public, Planned Parenthood lies and calls the videos fake. I have put my life on hold for five years to report, with video evidence, the trafficking of aborted infants that I and others witnessed at the highest levels of Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry. It is time for Planned Parenthood to face the truth.”
Peter Breen, Vice President and Senior Counsel for the Thomas More Society, is Daleiden’s lead attorney and spoke with The Daily Citizen about the case.
“Planned Parenthood made these outrageous statements about his project, saying that it was manufactured and a false smear campaign,” Breen said. “Those statements are utterly untrue, and they are damaging to David and the CMP and the work that they’ve been doing and totally the opposite of what Planned Parenthood admitted in court. They conceded that the videos accurately depicted what the Planned Parenthood staff said to David during his undercover investigation. That’s the genesis of the case.”
“With this defamation case, we want to establish the truth—that David’s project and the CMP work is not just true, it is fully accurate and the furthest thing from a manufactured smear campaign.”
But doing so comes at the price.
Daleiden has been sued and investigated numerous times, especially in California, over his undercover investigation. Though he has been convicted, most of his cases have been overturned on appeal. These cases not only represent a hindrance to Daleiden’s mission with the CMP, but also a threat to the future of investigative journalism.
“The federal case against David was allowed to proceed by the district judge, despite the fact that those claims could apply to any other investigative journalist undercover on any topic anywhere in the country,” Breen explained. “If that verdict is allowed to stand, run of the mill investigative journalism would essentially end in the country because it would be too expensive to pursue and ruinous for any reporter or news organization that decided to engage in that undercover project.”
“It is much broader than just the issue of abortion,” Breen said. “No matter what your biggest concern, whether it is corrupt politicians, medical ethics, animal rights or the environment. Investigative journalists going undercover have been vital to ensuring that bad practices are rooted out. Without brave citizen journalists and professional media doing this work, our country is a much poorer place, more corrupt place.
“What David is fighting for, and what we’re fighting for on David’s behalf, is not just for his right to expose the wrongdoing of Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry, but the right of every journalist to expose wrongdoing no matter the topic.”
Since David released his undercover videos, politicians, especially in California under the leadership of former Attorney General now vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris and current Attorney General Xavier Becerra, have utilized their positions of power not to fight for the right of independent journalists but to protect a specific political organization.
“What Kamala Harris did to David, was to apply her political views, to turn his undercover journalism techniques into state level felonies,” Breen said. “The California Attorney General’s office has never prosecuted an undercover journalist for illegal taping until David Daleiden.”
Though the continued legal challenges take up an enormous amount of David’s time, it also allows him to continue to expose Planned Parenthood for its lies.
“We’re going to go in and establish the truth, that Planned Parenthood did grave wrong, and that they should be held accountable for it. And to ensure that when Planned Parenthood lies about the good work being done by David and his collogues, that it’s addressed within a court of law,” Breen said.
Daleiden also has additional videos filmed at the National Abortion Federation Conferences that have never been released due to court injunctions. Per Breen, “It’s explosive and incredible material.”

Attorneys for Daleiden at the Thomas More Society said that the nation’s largest abortion organization orchestrated a smear campaign to distract from the content of his work, which featured candid conversations with Planned Parenthood executives about the trade of baby body parts.
“We have not been surprised over their campaign to smear the reputation of Mr. Daleiden, but they are not allowed to falsely besmirch his reputation for exposing the truth,” Thomas More Society president Tom Brejcha said in a statement.
The complaint cites a quote given by a communications officer from Planned Parenthood to Rewire News that accused Daleiden and his organization, the Center for Medical Progress, of having “manufacture[d] a fake smear campaign against Planned Parenthood.” It also cites a tweet from November 2019 that claimed Daleiden, who posed as a prospective buyer of fetal organs, distorted the truth in his videos.
“In reality, as PPFA and its representatives recorded on the Videos readily admit in other fora, Plaintiffs’ videos accurately record Planned Parenthood officials’ own shocking words spoken in real life,” the complaint says.
Planned Parenthood spokeswoman Melanie Newman dismissed the lawsuit as “baseless” and another chapter in a “multi-year, malicious campaign to advance [Daleiden’s] goals of banning safe, legal abortion in this country.”
“These baseless claims are not new. They are just another desperate attempt by a discredited source to get publicity,” Newman said in an email.
The suit marks the latest in a years-long legal struggle between Daleiden and Planned Parenthood. In December 2019, Daleiden sued an individual Planned Parenthood employee for defamation who was recorded on video discussing the sale of fetal organs.
A San Francisco Superior Court judge ruled Friday that nine of the state’s 15 felony charges against undercover journalists David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt, in a prosecution initiated by then-California Attorney General Kamala Harris, have enough evidence to proceed to a criminal trial. The judge dropped the other six charges.
Daleiden and Merritt, citizen journalists with the Center for Medical Progress, were charged with 14 felony counts of illegal taping of confidential information (eavesdropping) and one count of conspiracy, in which they exposed the illegal activity of Planned Parenthood and the human tissue procurement company Stem Express. The case marks the first time charges of eavesdropping have ever been made in California.
After Friday’s ruling, Daleiden said Harris’ case continues to fall apart as facts about Planned Parenthood’s criminal organ trafficking are revealed in the courtroom.
“The remaining charges under the California video recording law—the first and only time it has ever been used against undercover news gatherers—will fall for the same reasons that 5 charges were dismissed today: these were public conversations easily overheard by third parties,” Daleiden said.
In September, Judge Christopher Hite heard preliminary criminal hearings to determine if there is probable cause Daleiden and Merritt committed a crime. If the upcoming criminal trial is anything like the preliminary hearings, we can expect to hear witness testimonies from former Planned Parenthood abortionists, StemExpress executives, and National Abortion Federation executives. Witnesses in the preliminary hearings admitted to selling whole fetuses and attached baby heads, harvesting beating hearts from live fetuses, and Planned Parenthood’s deficient ethical and medical standards.
