Rep. Black: Planned Parenthood Should Face Indictment, Not Filmmakers

Fox News' "America's Newsroom"

A Texas grand jury's decision to indict two people involved in making a sting video against Planned Parenthood, and not the organization's officials themselves for speaking about harvesting and selling fetal parts, was a "miscarriage of justice," Rep. Diane Black, a member of the Congressional Pro-Life Caucus, said Wednesday.

"A investigation has been done, and there are obviously some things on those films that do need to be further investigated," said the Tennessee lawmaker, a nurse who authored the Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015, on Fox News "America's Newsroom" show.

There is still much evidence that needs to be released concerning the grand jury's decision, said Black, but still, she does not understand how anyone watching those videos could agree.

"If you're just referencing one piece of it, where they are negotiating the price," she said. "If it were just recovering what it costs to harvest the tissues, and there would be a flat fee schedule. But there would not be discussions "about if you want a heart and liver and brain, which by the way doesn't come from a blob of tissues. It comes from a baby. That procedure is against the law as well."

The abortion industry and Planned Parenthood tell people that a fetus is "not a baby," but a "blob of tissue," but we know better than that, said Black. "Changing the hearts and minds of people to understand what's really going on out there and especially if there's trafficking which appears to be happening."

On Tuesday, a grand jury in Harris County, Texas, indicted video makers David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt on charges of tampering with a government record and for using fake California drivers' licenses in the names of Robert David Sarkis and Susan Sarah Tennenbaum "with the intent to defraud or harm others," and they face up to 20 years in prison if they are convicted.
