capture from CMP video #8A decision from a federal judge is pending concerning undercover videos of abortion-industry workers bargaining for the sale of body parts and tissue from aborted babies.

David Daleiden of the Center for Medical Progress and his attorneys are waiting to hear back from U.S. district court in San Francisco in a case brought against him by the National Abortion Federation. The NAF wants an injunction against Daleiden and others involved in the undercover investigation.

Peter Breen, special counsel for the Thomas More Society, is one of Daleiden's attorneys. Breen tells OneNewsNow that the pro-abortion group objected to release of the videos to Congress, which is conducting its own investigation.

Breen, Peter (Thomas More Society)"What the record has shown is that it was clear that Congress wanted all of those videos; they wanted the unedited videos because of all these claims of 'doctoring,' which Center for Medical Progress and Mr. Daleiden vigorously reject," he explains. "... So everything was sent over to Congress in response to their lawful and legitimate subpoena."

The Federation also wants Daleiden held in contempt of court, arguing that the violent shootings earlier this month at a Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood clinic indicate Daleiden is inciting others to violence.

"...We think it's absolutely outrageous that peaceful, mainstream, pro-life activists could in any way be tagged with [the actions of] crazy, outrageous people who act against everything the pro-life movement stands for – that somehow there would be some connection there," states Breen.

NAF has the burden of proof for that allegation. Breen expects a ruling soon.
