Planned Parenthood wins video fraud case
From the New York Times:

Planned Parenthood Awarded $2 Million in Lawsuit Over Secret Videos

Just before the 2016 elections, anti-abortion activist David R. Daleiden secretly videotaped discussions with workers at Planned Parenthood and then edited them to make it appear that PP was selling fetus tissue for profit.

Mr. Daleiden, the leader of a group called the Center for Medical Progress, posed as a biotechnology representative to make the recordings. The jury found that he had trespassed on private property and committed fraud, according to court papers. Planned Parenthood said in a statement that the jury had ruled in its favor on each of its claims, including a violation of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act.

The anti-choice movement, predictably, is going to appeal claiming that deliberately defaming people with lies is protected speech.

Edited by Chiroptera, : Typo in post title. And in the body. Also decided to make an edit to make the last sentence slightly less inflammatory.

For this generation of far-right nationalists, religion is not a question of ethical conduct; it is purely about identity and peoplehood. -- Jan-Werner Müller
