StemExpress drops lawsuit against maker of undercover Planned Parenthood videos

Long before the term “fake news” became commonplace, Rep. Nancy Pelosi was among those who insisted that undercover videos showing the sale of body parts at Planned Parenthood likely were made up. She told CNN that she hadn’t actually seen the videos that were probably fake: “I’ve seen some news reports,” she said, “…but I also know some of it is not real and you can create any reality.”


Here’s a dose of reality: the Center for Medical Progress, the group behind the undercover videos, announced Wednesday that StemExpress had dropped its lawsuit against CMP and its project lead, David Daleiden.


The Washington Times reports that StemExpress dropped the suit “one day before an appellate hearing was set to take place on a motion to strike the complaint.” A statement released Wednesday by the Center for Medical Progress reads, in part:

CMP’s undercover videos exposed StemExpress in July 2015 as a major illegal vendor of aborted fetal organs and tissue from some of the biggest Planned Parenthood affiliates in the country.

StemExpress, Planned Parenthood Mar Monte, and Planned Parenthood Federation of America have been referred by the Senate Judiciary Committee and the House Energy & Commerce Committee’s Select Investigative Panel to the FBI and U.S. Department of Justice for criminal prosecution. The sale or purchase of human fetal tissue is a federal felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison or a fine of up to $500,000 (42 U.S.C. 289g-2).

That’s what happens when the old standby of dismissing incriminating video as “heavily edited” doesn’t fly.
