Pro-lifers ask courts to stop blocking release of Planned Parenthood baby parts videos
The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) and its co-counsel filed a request today with the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals asking them to withdraw the gag order placed on the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) that is preventing it from releasing videos recorded at the National Abortion Federation (NAF) conference.
This gag order is a result of NAF suing CMP. NAF is trying to suppress CMP from releasing full undercover footage of its abortion conference. CMP investigators have been fighting to release the full footage for more than a year now but have been prevented from doing so by the preliminary injunction (gag order). The ACLJ represents Troy Newman, a former CMP board member and the president of Operation Rescue. Newman is named in the lawsuit.
