Haters Lose Major Suit Against Planned Parenthood

Courthouse News reports:

A federal jury found an anti-abortion cohort led by David Daleiden caused substantial harm to Planned Parenthood by infiltrating abortion industry conferences to secretly tape abortion doctors and staff, and awarded punitive damages of $870,000.

Daleiden, who heads the Center for Medical Progress, and his co-defendant Sandra Merritt, posed as human tissue procurers for a fake company called BioMax as part of a hidden-camera investigation into Planned Parenthood.

The pair attended abortion industry conferences throughout 2013 and 2014 posing exhibitors named Robert Sarkis and Susan Tennenbaum, where they secretly recorded conversations they later posted online. Daleiden also made recordings at Planned Parenthood-affiliated clinics in Texas and Colorado.

Liberty Counsel has issued daily recaps of the case for weeks, usually accompanying each press release with money beg. Here’s their reaction:

“From the beginning, this trial has been straight-jacketed to tie the hands of the jury and force them to give a verdict to Planned Parenthood. There was critical evidence to our defense that was prohibited from being shown to the jury. There are so many reversible errors that we will address on appeal. This is not the last word.”

As you can see, wingnuts are screaming.
