Harvesting and Selling Baby Parts

David Daleiden, an investigative journalist with the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), released undercover videos beginning in July 2015, recorded while posing as the head of a company interested in the fetal tissue procurement business. In numerous meetings with abortion providers and companies involved in the transfer of fetal tissue, Daleiden recorded doctors, executives, and staff-level employees callously discussing various aspects of the fetal tissue procurement industry. The videos and other materials that Daleiden acquired detailed the relationship between fetal tissue procurement companies, such as Advanced Bioscience Resources, DaVinci Biologics, and StemExpress, and several abortion clinics, including those operated by Planned Parenthood.

As a result of his work, several abortion-related businesses have been referred for prosecution.
