As researchers and reporters for the Human Capital Project of the Center for Medical Progress, Daleiden and his investigative partner, Sandra Merritt, posed as human tissue buyers. What they uncovered shocked the country as the videos they recorded revealed Planned Parenthood’s involvement in aborted baby body parts trafficking.
The videos, 13 in all, caused a national outcry to #DefundPlannedParenthood and triggered a congressional investigation of the abortion industry. Within days of the first video release, David and Sandra were hauled into court by the National Abortion Federation.
The battle of David versus the “Goliath” abortion industry eventually evolved into seven separate court cases both criminal and civil — in four different states.
