Pro-life journalist facing deadline
Pro-life investigative journalist David Daleiden must raise $600,000 in less than two weeks to pay an appeal bond or Planned Parenthood can begin seizing his assets and those of his organization, the Center for Medical Progress, according to a San Francisco judge’s ruling. United States District Judge William H. Orrick’s Wednesday judgment is the latest turn in Planned Parenthood’s retaliatory lawsuit against Daleiden and four others, which it launched after the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) released undercover videos in 2015 exposing the abortion giant’s trafficking in aborted baby body parts. Daleiden was the mastermind behind a 30-month-long undercover sting operation during which he and others secretly recorded gatherings of abortionists and organ-harvesting companies. After Daleiden took his evidence to law enforcement agencies to limited effect, CMP began releasing the videos in July, 2015. The footage of top-level Planned Parenthood executives haggling over prices of aborted baby body parts and discussing how to change abortion procedures to obtain more intact organs, and of abortion facility staff picking through pie trays of baby parts, sparked public outcry, house and senate hearings, and an ongoing department of justice criminal investigation into Planned Parenthood.
School district wants parents out
A central Tennessee school district sparked concern when it asked parents to sign a form agreeing not to monitor their children’s online classes. The Rutherford County School (RCS) letter asking parents to steer clear of their children’s virtual classroom for privacy reasons was reported Aug. 15 by the Tennessee Star, which received a copy of the form. Parents are asked to sign the form, which warns that “vVolation of this agreement may result in RCS removing my child from the virtual meeting,” the Tennessee Star reported. The RCS incident comes as the Tennessee Bureau Of Investigation is warning parents to be exceptionally vigilant about what their children are doing online after tracking an increase in cyber-activity by sexual predators since March, as Fox13 reported. Concerns over the RCS form also come a a Philadelphia teacher complained n a private chat last week that the increased parental oversight that comes with virtual classrooms will “damage” sex education.
