Two Cheers for David Daleiden

Two Cheers for David Daleiden

[Title inspired by the neo-Con godfather Irving Kristol’s 1978 book Two Cheers for Capitalism: I can’t give him three cheers, because I don’t understand how the third of his three spiritual influences (Pope Francis’ pastoral teaching) can be “incredibly inspiring” and “comforting”. It’s just the opposite to me. – AQ moderator Tom]

From: Baby body parts scandal ‘could take Planned Parenthood down’, says David Daleiden (LifeSiteNews, June 15, 2016)

Daleiden said he became more serious about his Catholic faith after becoming involved in the pro-life movement. He told LifeSiteNews that his three spiritual influences are the Traditional Latin Mass, the message of Our Lady of Fatima, and the pastoral teaching of Pope Francis.

“All three of those things were incredibly inspiring for me, they were comforting for me, and I don’t think that I could have done this work without them,” he said.

  1. Charge Against Pro-Life Planned Parenthood Videomaker Dropped
    by Lana Shadwick, June 14

    HOUSTON, Texas — One of the charges against the pro-life Planned Parenthood video maker has been dropped.

    Lawyers for David Daleiden provided Breitbart Texas with a copy of the order from the Harris County criminal court judge dismissing the Class A misdemeanor charge for prohibition of the purchase and sale of human organs.

    The judge ruled that the court does not have jurisdiction over the case. The judge ruled that the indictment was based on Texas Penal Code section 48.02 but the indictment did not reference the exception named within the Penal Code section. The judge ruled that “The indictment’s failure to negate this exception renders it void.” A prosecutor must negate the existence of this exception and prove beyond a reasonable doubt the defendant’s conduct does not fall within the exception.

    The exception provides that “It is an exception to the application of this section that the valuable consideration is: (1) a fee paid to a physician or to other medical personnel for services rendered in the usual course of medical practice or a fee paid for hospital or other clinical services; (2) reimbursement of legal or medical expenses incurred for the benefit of the ultimate receiver of the organ; or (3) reimbursement of expenses of travel, housing, and lost wages incurred by the donor of a human organ in connection with the donation of the organ.”

    Daleiden lawyer Jared Woodfill told Breitbart Texas, “This is a huge win for the pro-life movement. The charges brought by Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson were spurious at best.” [more at the link]
