A federal judge holds attorneys for pro-life investigators in contempt for posting a new video exposing Planned Parenthood’s executives laughing and joking about abortion procedures — including illegal procedures.
U.S. District Court Judge William Orrick ruled Tuesday that attorneys Steve Cooley and Brentford Ferreira, who represent David Daleiden of The Center for Medical Progress, violated Orrick’s injunction against releasing any new videos. Judge Orrick is holding them in contempt after links to the videos appeared on the attorneys’ website.
The judge had threatened to hold Daleiden in contempt in May after an undercover video from a National Abortion Federation conference was released. In it, Planned Parenthood executives and abortionists can be seen joking, laughing, and discussing abortion procedures — including performing illegal procedures, such as “intact dilation and extraction,” or partial-birth abortion. There were also discussions about “financial incentives” for the body parts of babies being aborted.
