In California, a federal judge blocked the release of additional videos exposing the abortion industry after the National Abortion Federation (NAF) said they were concerned about footage from events it sponsored for abortion groups across the country. Last month, four videos released by the Center for Medical Progress showed Planned Parenthood executives negotiating the sale of babies killed in abortions.
As LifeNews previously reported, NAF filed a suit in federal court “seeking a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction which would prohibit the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), David Daleiden, and others from releasing recordings and materials they illegally obtained at NAF’s educational meetings.”
As it turns out, the official who issued the temporary restraining order, Judge William Orrick, III, is an Obama supporter and donor. He raised at least $300,000 for Obama’s presidential campaign and gave $30,800 to committees that support Obama.
Molly Hemingway told Breitbart News , “Even though the National Abortion Federation filed its claim only hours before, Orrick quickly decided in their favor that the abortionists they represent would, ironically, be “likely to suffer irreparable injury, absent an ex parte temporary restraining order, in the form of harassment, intimidation, violence, invasion of privacy, and injury to reputation, and the requested relief is in the public interest.”
Orrick’s wife, Caroline “Linie” Farrow Orrick, is a clown and artist with an interest in outdoor athletic endeavors. She partners with her husband in their political decisions and she is his co-bundler according to Public Citizen. She’s also a public supporter of extreme abortion policies.
Her YouTube user page shows that the first video she ever “liked” was from an extreme pro-abortion group called the Center for Reproductive Justice. The slick, celebrity-laden video called for people to sign a “bill of rights” that asserts a right to abortion on demand through all nine months of pregnancy, a position shared by very few Americans. It further calls for taxpayer funding of contraception, abortifacients and abortion. And, finally, it says that all health care plans should be required under penalty of law to cover abortion, abortifacients, and other anti-reproductive services — even if they have religious objections such as those held by the Little Sisters of the Poor.
On Facebook, Caroline shared her support for Obamacare, taxpayer funding of abortion and Planned Parenthood. In fact, in one post she all but endorses Planned Parenthood’s practice of selling aborted babies for medical research by sharing a link from “Keeping America Pro-choice.” The post read: ” An amazing use for fetal tissue. One of the earliest advances with fetal tissue was to use fetal kidney cells to create the first poliovirus vaccines, which are now estimated to save 550,000 lives worldwide every year.”

After Judge Orrick issued the restraining order, the founder of the Center for Medical Progress, David Daleiden, commented on NAF’s lawsuit. He said, “The Center for Medical Progress follows all applicable laws in the course of our investigative journalism work and will contest all attempts from Planned Parenthood and their allies to silence our First Amendment rights.”
