This is a proud day for computer nerds everywhere.
Remember that restraining order placed on the Center for Medical Progress’ video series on Planned Parenthood’s organ sales program? Well, one enterprising hacker has just made sure the blocked footage finally saw the light of day! LifeSiteNews reports:
The website GotNews.com claims it has obtained and released “all” the remaining undercover videos of Planned Parenthood officials shot by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), including videos that were blocked from being released to the public by a court order.
Eleven previously unseen videos have been uploaded to YouTube.
The website’s founder, journalist Charles C. Johnson, said that an internet hacker named Andrew “Weev” Auernheimer obtained the footage and uploaded it to YouTube.
“This material was turned over by Congressional whistleblowers not subject to the court order,” Auernheimer said.
The videos, which range in length from just over one minute to more than 36 minutes, contain more intrepid footage of abortion industry officials.
Unsurprisingly, the National Abortion Federation is already trying to silence them under the excuse that they are “in active concert or consultation with” CMP’s David Daleiden and are subject to his restraining order. Johnson disagrees, and says he’ll go to the Supreme Court if necessary to keep the videos up:
“The law firm wants GotNews.com to turn over all texts, emails with Daleiden. This is easy. There aren’t any,” he wrote.
“GotNews.com will contest any unconstitutional prior restraint of speech all the way to the highest courts in the land,” he added.
Bravo to Auernheimer and Johnson for shedding light on the shocking acts taking place at Planned Parenthood! The videos themselves were uploaded to GotNews.com’s YouTube page and can be viewed here.
