Felony charges don’t suppress more whistleblowing
The group, headed by whistleblower David Daleiden, released the video focusing on DeShawn Taylor, who at the time was medical director at a Planned Parenthood in Phoenix. In the video (below), she was asked what is done to babies who are born alive during abortions – and responded that it depends on who is present at the time:
No prize for exposing gruesome, illegal acts
California Attorney General Xavier Becerra has lodged 15 felony criminal complaints against David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt for their previous undercover work. The two have done extensive undercover videos of Planned Parenthood and other abortion-providers harvesting aborted babies’ body parts and selling them for profit.
Students for Life executive director Kristan Hawkins explains why, in her opinion, Daleiden and Merritt are being prosecuted while other journalists who have done similar work have been honored.
“Pulitzer Prizes have been given out to journalists for years who’ve done shocking undercover exposés,” she tells OneNewsNow, “but because this undercover exposé was about the abortion industry, now we see these bogus charges being filed.”
Hawkins points out the charges in California are the same types of charges filed against Daleiden and Merritt in Houston, Texas, which were “defeated pretty easily.”

Taylor: “It’s not a matter of how I feel about it coming out intact. But I’ve got to worry about my staff and about people’s feelings about it coming out looking like a baby.”
Taylor has used the D&E method (dilation and evacuation), which involves using instruments to tear the baby apart limb by limb in the womb, causing it to experience extreme pain.
Also in the undercover video, Taylor objects to people who document the abortions:
Taylor: “We have the people who do our paperwork for the fetal death certificates. They email us, calling them babies. Baby this, baby that, baby so-and-so – and I’m like That’s creepy.”
That’s consistent with what OneNewsNow has reported previously – i.e., the attitude of many abortionists is to dismiss the humanity of the child.
