Today the National Abortion Foundation filed suit against the anti-choice fanatics behind the Orwellian “Center for Medical Progress,” seeking a temporary restraining order and injunction to prevent them from releasing any video of NAF meetings.
The lawsuit names CMP as a defendant as well as BioMax Procurement Services, the fake company created in order to deceive people working for Planned Parenthood and other organizations. CMP’s leader, David Daleiden, is also named in the lawsuit, as well as founding member Troy Newman, who is the president of the radical anti-choice organization Operation Rescue.
When questioned about his involvement with CMP, Newman told RH Reality Check that he was proud of the work Daleiden has done at CMP.
“Over the past three years I have offered advice and counsel to someone who has become a very good friend,” Newman said via email. “But this is just the beginning, we have moles and spies deep inside the abortion cartel. And at a time of our choosing, we will release more damning evidence of the abortion cartel’s illegal, ghastly, and repugnant butchery.”
In other news, the Huffington Post published images of the fake California driver’s licenses used by these activists, seen above (click to enlarge).
Using a fake driver’s license in this way is definitely illegal in California, and may be either a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the circumstances.
The anti-abortion activists who gained access to highly sensitive areas of Planned Parenthood clinics and other related organizations over the past three years are facing at least two lawsuits after they allegedly used fake identification cards and created a fake company in order to film their targets without consent.
Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Federation claim that David Daleiden, the founder of Center for Medical Progress, used a fake ID displaying the name “Robert Daoud Sarkis” to circumvent their security precautions and gain access to the groups’ annual meetings and facilities.
The CMP has released four videos so far — and claims to have many more on the way — that show Planned Parenthood doctors discussing reimbursement costs for the donation of fetal parts for medical research. In the first video, a woman, who is yet to be identified, can be heard speaking to Planned Parenthood doctor Deborah Nucatola. That woman apparently used a fake ID with the name “Susan Sarah Tennenbaum.”
