Anti-Abortion Activist’s Human Organ Purchase Charge Dropped

June 16, 2016

(ABC News) – A misdemeanor charge accusing an anti-abortion activist of trying to buy human organs while making an undercover video looking into Planned Parenthood practices has been dismissed, and his attorneys said Tuesday they are working to have a felony count the activist faces thrown out as well. David Daleiden, 27, and fellow activist Sandra Merritt, 63, were each indicted in January on a felony charge of tampering with a governmental record for allegedly using fake driver’s licenses to conceal their identities while dealing with Planned Parenthood at a Houston clinic.
