District Judge Permanently Bans Undercover Abortion Trade Show Videos From Public Eye

A judge in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California awarded a permanent injunction to the National Abortion Federation (NAF) on Wednesday, ordering that undercover videos recorded by pro-life activist and journalist David Daleiden are to remain sealed.

After Daleiden and other journalists from the Center for Medical Progress recorded videos of Planned Parenthood officials discussing the trafficking of aborted baby body parts at NAF conferences and trade shows, NAF requested and was awarded a temporary injunction on Daleiden’s footage in July 2016.

On Feb 17, 2021, a hearing was held to determine whether that temporary injunction, which was keeping more than 200 hours of footage out of the public eye, should be made permanent. Judge William Orrick insinuated he had already made up his mind.
