After pro-abortion California Attorney General Kamala Harris stole unreleased video footage concerning Planned Parenthood during a raid on the home of David Daleiden, the director of the Center for Medical Progress, pro-life groups are calling for her resignation.
California authorities seized a laptop and hard drives containing the video footage collected during Daleiden’s 3-year investigation of Planned Parenthood’s involvement in the illegal sale of aborted baby remains, according to a written statement made by Life Legal Defense Foundation, which is helping to defend Daleiden.
Today, pro-life advocates called on Harris to resign.
“When Kamala Harris raided [Daleiden’s] home last Tuesday, we were absolutely shocked,” local pro-life advocate Veronica Fealy said. “We were shocked to find out that someone so upright, someone we admire, was so wrongly invaded by Kamala Harris.”
“Kamala Harris is supposed to be the person we trust to go after criminals, but instead she targets an innocent law abiding citizen. A law abiding citizen like you and me. Instead of acknowledging evidence against Planned Parenthood, and investigating them, she tries to silence and intimidate the messenger. However, everyone here today stands with David and we will not be silenced. We will be louder than we’ve ever been,” Fealy promised.
Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America, agreed: “California Attorney General Kamala Harris, who sent agents to raid the home of a citizen journalist who exposed Planned Parenthood’s practices of harvesting and selling the body parts of aborted babies, is using her Senate campaign website to advocate for the abortion giant, promoting a petition to defend Planned Parenthood. Ms. Harris is engaging in exceptionally corrupt behavior, using her office as AG to aide a staunch supporter of her campaign. This is exactly the kind of puppeteering and blatant of conflict of interest that the American public is sick and tired of. Ms. Harris should immediately resign her position as the California Attorney General.”

Harris, a pro-abortion Democrat, chose to focus her investigation on Daleiden and his associates rather than Planned Parenthood, even though the video footage so far released by Daleiden’s Center for Medical Progress shows clear evidence that Planned Parenthood was illegally altering abortion procedures to endure intact organs targeted for harvesting then selling the organs for profit.

Since the California Department of Justice, under the leadership of Democratic State Attorney General Kamala Harris, searched the home of David Daleiden, there have been numerous news stories noting an apparent conflict of interest in Harris’ investigation of Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress that ignores obvious evidence of illegal conduct on the part of Planned Parenthood.
Brian Johnston of California Pro-Life Council joined in criticizing Harris.
“Last year, David Daleiden’s videos of Planned Parenthood officials arranging the sale of human organs from aborted children stunned the world. While seven other state’s Attorneys General launched investigations into the PP actions in their states our state’s ‘top cop’ decided to do the opposite,” he said.
“She ignored PP’s macabre actions and instead decided to pursue and silence the investigator! At that time we knew of at least several sizable-political donations directly from PP to Harris. Since then more than $80,000 of PP political donations to the AG have been revealed. Her campaign web-site even includes a ‘petition of support’ for Planned Parenthood,” he added.
