FLASHBACK: Harris Tried to Jail Pro-Life Journalists Who Exposed Planned Parenthood

In March of 2016, then-Attorney General of California, Kamala Harris, who is now the Democrats de-facto Vice Presidential candidate, met with six executives from the abortion giant Planned Parenthood in Los Angeles.

Two weeks later, she ordered a search warrant of journalist and pro-life activist David Daleiden’s home which specifically sought unreleased undercover video and documents that he had legally obtained. In the subsequent raid, authorities took unpublished footage and hard drives that ought to have been protected by California law.

This raid was quickly followed by 15 criminal charges and a civil lawsuit seeking millions against these citizen journalists, as LifeNews explains.

Daleiden and Sandra Merritt of the Center for Medical Progress had uncovered Planned Parenthood’s illegal trafficking of aborted baby body parts by recording their now-legendary undercover footage and publishing their findings.

They began publishing their work in 2015; that same year, Harris received $81,215 in campaign donations from the abortion industry, LifeNews notes.

Her attack on the activists’ work was unprecedented and downright tyrannical, considering it has been well-established that CMP did not break the law.

LifeNews explains:

Under California law, conversations that “may be overheard” are, by definition, not “confidential” and can be recorded without consent. The recorded abortionists admitted under oath that their conversations with Merritt and Daleiden could be overheard by others in the public spaces where they were recorded, and they took no steps to prevent others from overhearing their candid discussion of what Planned Parenthood does behind closed doors. Therefore, the undercover videos produced by Merritt and Daleiden did not violate California video recording law.

But that did not stop Planned Parenthood and Harris from wielding a politically motivated prosecution against the two citizen journalists.

During her time in the Senate, where she currently serves, Harris has advocated for radical pro-abortion legislation, including co-sponsoring a bill to invalidate any state-level restrictions on abortion.

When she was running for president in last year’s Democrat primaries, her campaign communications director was former Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richard’s daughter.

And when the Biden campaign announced Harris was his VP pick, the abortion giant stated: “Planned Parenthood Action Fund is thrilled to congratulate Senator Kamala Harris on her nomination to be vice president on the Democratic presidential ticket. Throughout her career, she has been a steadfast champion for reproductive rights and health care. With this selection, Joe Biden has made it clear that he is deeply committed to not only protecting reproductive rights, but also advancing and expanding them.”

This woman is a fierce advocate not for justice, liberty, or free speech, but for a for-profit business that makes millions murdering unborn babies in the womb and dehumanizing women.

Can you even imagine if she was in the White House?
