|Becerra, Harris and California's Democrats: The New Donner Party|
"On Tuesday, the state of California charged David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt of the Center for Medical Progress on 15 felony counts over their undercover reporting regarding Planned Parenthood. In 2015, Daleiden and Merritt released video showing high-ranking Planned Parenthood members joking about selling baby body parts for market rates and picking through baby body parts in order to demonstrate which sorts of body parts were available for sale for medical research, as well as talking about the best methods of abortion for procuring those baby body parts. The California Department of Justice, under the auspices of now-Senator Kamala Harris, raided Daleiden’s home for footage in April 2016; last year, the state of Texas pursued charges against Daleiden and Merritt, but those charges were thrown out.
So, here’s the question: where’s the media, rushing to the defense of these undercover journalists?
They’re silent. Or they’re celebrating, since they think that Daleiden and Merritt were evil conservatives out to target the saints at Planned Parenthood. They buy the lie that the tapes were deceptively edited so as to implicate Planned Parenthood in nefarious activity – but the tapes show precisely what the tapes show.".......
Shapiro goes on to make the sound legal case for investigative reporting, but this isn't really a legal case. It's a political prosecution of the old Soviet variety. Or perhaps, given the religious zealotry of the Dead Baby Industrialists, a religious persecution of non-believers worthy of Iranian Mullahs or the Saudi Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice. An Inquisition of Obstetric Apostasy.
Speaking of morally-retarded foreign practices, here's Radio Free Asia from 2012:
"China has been extracting organs from living prisoners in addition to its much publicized and criticized practice of taking vital body parts from executed convicts, experts told a U.S. congressional hearing this week.
Two-thirds of transplant organs in China come from prisoners, and the government says it plans to abolish organ harvesting from death-row inmates within the next five years, according to state media reports.
Researcher Ethan Gutmann told the hearing that he began gathering details of organ-taking from prisoners in 2006 through interviews with Chinese medical professionals, law enforcement personnel, and over 50 former prisoners of China’s laogai labor-camp system.
Based on his research, Gutmann said, he believes that the practice of taking organs from Chinese prisoners began in the remote Xinjiang region—where ethnic Uyghurs say they are discriminated against by Han Chinese—in the 1990s and had expanded nationwide by 2001.
Though at first the victims of this practice were executed prisoners, he said, doctors began to take organs from living prisoners as well, he told the Oversight and Investigation and Human Rights Subcommittees of the House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee.
'Like from hell'
One man that Gutmann interviewed—Nijiati Abdureyimu, a former special officer in the Urumqi Public Security Bureau—said that a fellow officer once heard screams “like from hell” coming from a “harvesting” van parked at a prison’s execution ground.
“Two years later, the prison’s medical director confessed to Nijiati that organ harvesting from living human beings—they would expire during the surgery of course—was now routine,”.......
China's organ harvesting policies--and press freedoms-- are almost indistinguishable from California's. "They're doomed anyway--might as well get some use out of them."
Except China plans to end their organ harvesting while California plans to expand theirs forever. Perhaps they'll establish a Baby Parts Guild like the California Raisin Advisory Board. Why not? Baby parts seem destined for California's breakfast cereals:
"Try New Frisco Fetal Flakes--Now Part of a Nutritious Breakfast!"
If they ever discover fetal cells make a better Viagra, it will be all over.
Even if the prosecution fails, Big Baby is sending a message: Do Not Interfere With Our State-Sponsored Organ Harvesting Industry.
It's a serious crime in California to traffic in snail darter parts.
But it's a serious business in California to traffic in human baby parts, and just like Democrats once told Harriet Tubman, they're telling reporters "We damn sure don't need no outside agitatuhs nosin' 'round heah, stirrin' up trouble, son."
Enjoy your people cereal, cereal people. "Baby. It's What's for Breakfast(tm)."

David French explains how undercover video reporters at a California duck farm
were hailed as heroes by these same politicians.

They told me if Trump was elected, they'd be prosecuting investigative reporters,
and they were right.
You know who else loves to criminalize journalism and persecute political opponents? Putin.
Old and busted: Democracy dies in darkness.
New hotness: Abortionist organ trafficking thrives in darkness.
Hot Air: "California law specifically includes an exception to its wiretapping laws for especially newsy recordings — specifically, recordings aimed at “obtaining evidence reasonably believed to relate to the commission by another party to the communication of the crime of extortion, kidnapping, bribery, any felony involving violence against the person.” Planned Parenthood’s fetal-tissue business may not qualify, but the principle behind that exception is sound: When a recording is of great public interest, capturing evidence that may involve significant wrongdoing, the person who recorded it is off the hook. Becerra could have exercised his prosecutorial discretion and refused to charge Daleiden and Merritt for that reason, arguing that although they don’t technically qualify for the statutory exception, their interest in exposing possible malfeasance in organ trafficking was virtuous. But that’s the whole problem. In California, making Planned Parenthood look bad isn’t virtuous, ever. Result: 15 felony counts.
Here’s the latest from Daleiden, released just this morning in a show of defiance. Sample quote: “Dr. Taylor explains to the investigators, ‘In Arizona, if the fetus comes out with any signs of life, we’re supposed to transport it. To the hospital.’ When one investigator then asks, ‘Is there any standard procedure for verifying signs of of life?’
Dr. Taylor replies, ‘Well, the thing is, I mean
the key is, you need to pay attention to who’s in the room, right?'”
No public interest in having that exposed, right?".......
