David Daleiden: Well I don’t really talk about specifically what’s going to be on them before the exact release. I can say though and I’m happy to say in relation to the order from the California court that came down just a few days ago.
Reporter: The restraining order that is trying to prevent you from releasing some of the videos yeah. How are you responding to that?
Daleiden: Right, so Center for Medical Progress follows all applicable laws in the course of our investigative journalism work and we’re of course ready to contest any infringement or attempt to suppress/silence our free speech rights, and our rights under the First Amendment to publish.
The company, StemExpress, which is one of the biotech companies Planned Parenthood has partnered with to harvest their fetal tissue and sell it. StemExpress is trying to suppress a specific video recording of a meeting with their top leadership where their leadership admitted that they sometimes get fully intact fetuses shipped to their laboratory from the abortion clinics that they work with, and that could be prima facie evidence of born alive infants. And so that’s why they’re trying to suppress that videotape and they’re very scared of it.
