Guest: Alexandra Snyder
People all across America were both sickened and angered when they heard what David Daleiden of the Center for Medical Progress uncovered as he released the results of his undercover investigations of Planned Parenthood. We heard about baby crushing, how Planned Parenthood became good at getting heart, lung and livers from unborn babies. We heard the negotiations for baby parts with a representative for Planned Parenthood saying, ‘I want a Lamborghini’. We heard about the obtaining of intact fetal cadavers and how this contributes to the bottom line of Planned Parenthood. We even heard about how technicians would take the fetal parts without patient consent.
As a result of the videos, many states have taken action to stop the sale of baby body parts. So you’d think that the person who revealed these atrocities would be viewed as a hero. Unfortunately, that’s not the case.
Joining Jim to discuss this issue was Alexandra Snyder. Alexandra is executive director of the Life Legal Defense Foundation. She is also an attorney and a member of the California State Bar. She has a background in public policy having served as legislative counsel to a California member of Congress in both Washington DC and Sacramento, California. In that capacity she handled a wide array of legislative and policy matters including pro-life issues, bioethics and the protection of human rights.
Alexandra reported that Kamala Harris, the attorney general of California, obtained a warrant to search and seize the property of David Daleiden. The California Department of Justice followed through with a raid conducted on David’s home in which property and personal belongings were seized. What’s so disturbing about this raid is the fact that there is no precedent for this kind of activity when it comes to undercover journalists.
Jim noted an interesting point regarding Kamala Harris and her concern for animals vs. her concern for the unborn. When an undercover investigation of a meat packing plant revealed potential violations of the law, she defended legislation to stop the barbaric treatment of animals. At no time did she call for an investigation of that journalist who exposed the illegal activity taking place in that case.
Jim also presented other abortion related news including:
–Planned Parenthood accused of promises of AIDS and cancer cures by their fetal
–The Energy and Commerce Committee’s Select Investigative Panel recently
issued 12 new subpoenas to fetal tissue procurement organizations that have
failed to fully cooperate with requests for information and previous subpoenas.
–Representative Marsha Blackburn comments on remarks by Hillary Clinton who
asserted that constitutional rights don’t apply to unborn persons.
–The Obama administration is ‘up in arms’ and is warning states not to say ‘no’
when it comes to funding Planned Parenthood.
