A pro-life activist who went after Planned Parenthood, and made himself a target of the Left, is fighting a legal battle over public documents.
David Daleiden and his Center for Medical Progress made headlines after Planned Parenthood officials were secretly recorded discussing baby body parts and organs.
It's illegal to profit from fetal tissue collected for research, and Daleiden created a fake procurement company to prove the abortion giant was breaking federal laws.
Enter the University of Washington and its fetal tissue bank. Daleiden requested information from UW, and the school asked other parties if they objected to releasing that information.
"They did object," says Tom Brechjcha, chief counsel for the Thomas More Society, which is representing Daleiden. "And they filed a massive class action lawsuit in federal court saying that this threatened their physical safety if their identities became publicly known."
Daleiden and his legal counsel offered to accept redacted identities, other than those already well known to be involved. Thomas More asked the court to dismiss the lawsuit and the judge gave the plaintiff two weeks to amend its complaint.
"And if they didn't do that," Brejcha tell OneNewsNow, "he would throw the case out in its entirety."
There is a chance the case could be moved to a state court, where Thomas More is prepared to fight.
"We want these documents," the attorney says.
While Daleiden and Thomas More are fighting their legal battle, a second pro-life group is pointing out the hypocrisy of Planned Parenthood demanding taxpayers' dollars.
Cecile Richards, the CEO of Planned Parenthood, recently enjoyed a 62-percent raise that shot her salary to almost $1 million annually, American Life League, citing public documents, pointed out.
