Will 9th Circuit 'go liberal' on Daleiden?

Despite a lower-court ruling barring him from doing it, David Daleiden remains hopeful he will be able to release more undercover videos of abortion advocates discussing the harvesting and sale of aborted babies' body parts.

Since last summer Daleiden has released a series of "sting" videos, mostly of Planned Parenthood officials harvesting and discussing the sale of body parts from aborted babies. A federal judge in San Francisco has made permanent an injunction prohibiting Daleiden and his Center for Medical Progress from releasing videos featuring members of the National Abortion Federation. The NAF is suggesting the release could cause irreparable harm.

OneNewsNow talked with attorney Alexandra Snyder of Life Legal Defense Foundation, who says she's disappointed, but not surprised with the ruling. The impact, she says, is that Daleiden's speech "is still being censored."
