Legal Group Fights Back Against Court Blocking Videos Exposing Aborted Baby Sales

The American public has been shocked and disgusted by the revelations concerning Planned Parenthood’s latest business venture: dismembering and selling body parts of unborn children. The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) – a pro-life investigative journalism group – has released shocking videos of the abortionists discussing the sale of body parts, as well as abortion techniques used to harvest the body parts during abortions. At the ACLJ, we now represent CMP – along with its founder David Daleiden and board member Troy Newman – defending them in a federal lawsuit filed by the National Abortion Federation (NAF) – a lawsuit aimed at stopping the release of videos involving NAF. The fact of the mater is the abortion industry doesn’t want the American public to see the evil it is perpetrating. It is scared, running to court in an attempt to intimidate and silence the truth about big abortion’s murder and sale of aborted babies’ body parts. Last Friday, a federal district court judge issued a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) – barring CMP from releasing any videos involving NAF. At a hearing in federal court in San Francisco yesterday, a judge extended the TRO until the end of this month. Details in this report from the Associated Press: “U.S. District Judge William Orrick sided with claims by the National Abortion Federation and its members that they would suffer harassment, intimidation and even violence if the Center for Medical Progress was permitted to circulate the material.” The center last month released several secretly recorded videos that it claimed showed Planned Parenthood employees selling fetal tissue for profit, which is illegal.

Leading Researcher Confirms Unborn Children Can Feel Pain at 20 Weeks

As people in India join a national abortion debate following an appeals court’s rejection of a couple’s request for a late-term abortion, the issue of fetal pain is coming into play. One aspect of the debate revolves around whether or not unborn children have the capacity to feel pain. Kanwaljeet Anand, a pediatrician and fetal pain specialist at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, is considered the top American expert on the subject. Anand has conducted research on the subject for over two decades and he also happens to be a native Indian. Anand told the Telegraph of India newspaper that scientists have seen how operations and other procedures involving unborn children in the womb have shown clear evidence that a baby feels pain before birth. “The evidence is undeniable,” he told the newspaper. “Even a 20-week foetus is likely to feel pain, and excruciating pain.” He told the newspaper he thinks unborn children even have the ability to feel more intense pain, including in an abortion, than newborn babies, children or even adults. “This is because pain transmission pathways have developed in the foetus, but not the pain modulation pathways that are not effective until six weeks after birth,” he explained. “There is more than enough evidence now. But no one is as blind as someone who doesn’t want to see,” he said, adding that not all doctors have been convinced by his studies. [6 August 08, Ertelt, www.LifeNews.com #4386, Bombay,...
