Conservatives were stung Monday by a Texas grand jury's decision to clear Planned Parenthood and instead indict two anti-abortion activists who shot undercover videos purporting to show the organization dealing in harvested organs from aborted fetuses.

Twitter users called the decision "depressing" and "vile."
 

Townhall Political Editor Guy Benson suggested the trial process might not be so favorable to Planned Parenthood.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who ordered the original grand jury probe into Planned Parenthood that ended up indicting the videomakers, said that despite the decision, Texas "will continue to protect life & investigate [Planned Parenthood] practices."

"It is a sad day in America when those who harvest the body parts of aborted babies escape consequences for their actions, while the courageous truth-tellers who expose their misdeeds are handed down a politically motivated indictment instead, said Tennessee Republican Rep. Diane Black.

Daniel Payne, who writes for The Federalist, found it odd that one of the activists, David Daleiden, faces a charge of buying human organs from Planned Parenthood when the organization was found not to be selling them.
Federalist co-founder Sean Davis compared the case to the Netflix documentary "Making a Murderer," wondering, albeit sarcastically, if those filmmakers might now face murder charges.

The Harris County grand jury indicted Daleiden, founder of the Center for Medical Progress, and Sandra Merritt on a felony charge of tampering with a governmental record as part of their operation to pose as employees of a tissue research company they made up for the investigation. Daleiden also was indicted on a misdemeanor count related to purchasing human organs.
