The undercover Planned Parenthood video that a California court has blocked from release shows StemExpress executives admitting that "they sometimes get fully intact fetuses shipped to their laboratory" from the Planned Parenthood abortion clinics that supply them, according to the video maker.
"That could be prima facie evidence of born-alive infants," Daniel Daleidan, the man behind the undercover videos, told CNN. "So that's why they're trying to suppress the videotape and they're very scared of it."
Harvesting organs from born-alive infants would be evidence of an illegal operation, as partial-birth abortion was outlawed in November 2003.
The California Superior Court issued a temporary restraining order against Daleidan's Center for Medical Progress. The order blocks the release of undercover video footage Daleidan shot of three high-level StemExpress employees.
StemExpress sued the Center for Medical Progress for unlawful recording, because the group posed as potential buyers of fetal tissue and did not disclose. StemExpress conversations with the buyers were secretly recorded.
