An end to free speech on live aborted baby parts sales?

From John Stonestreet at

Those who saw the videos recorded by the Center for Medical Progress that exposed Planned Parenthood’s baby-parts-for-cash racket will never forget them. Not knowing they were being filmed, Planned Parenthood officials matter-of-factly discussed making profit from the salvaged organs and tissue of aborted babies.

Though Planned Parenthood escaped any meaningful sanction for what the videos revealed, the efforts of the Center for Medical Progress left a mark. So in response, Planned Parenthood and its sympathizers have harassed and have tried to even punish those responsible for its embarrassment.

The latest example is Assembly Bill 1671, currently under consideration in the California legislature. This bill would, if it becomes law, “make it a crime for a person who unlawfully eavesdrops upon or records a confidential communication. . . with a health care provider . . . to intentionally disclose or distribute the contents of the confidential communication without the consent of all parties. . . unless specified conditions are met.”

The key words here are “unlawfully,” “health care provider,” and “disclose or distribute.” It is already unlawful in California to eavesdrop on or record a confidential communication without the other parties’ consent. Thus, if the Center for Medical Progress videos had been made in California, they could have been charged with a crime.

Reality check: In the same way, “patient confidentiality” and the right to omit information from a death certificate in Canada prevent disclosure of the circumstances under which a person is euthanised, this sort of legislation will prevent the public from knowing what its tax dollars pay for via Planned Parenthood. Things will certainly get worse under permanent progressive government, at least unless people start to realize: We are all “the fetus” now.

The proposed child euthanasia clinics may provide another convenient source of untraceable organs (patient confidentiality).

    Mark my words, when the political elite takes away the right of individuals to expose illegal activity, the next approach will be to terminate those who commit these illegal acts with extreme prejudice.

  • Raymond Hietapakka

    How will that affect existing Laws that oblige one to report a crime in progress or being plotted?

    So secretly recording conversations is illegal unless you’re recording Donald Trump.

    Got it.

    Planned Parenthood’s history and actions show them to be an organization with plenty to hide. Recent events, such as the discovery of Kermit Gosnell’s back-alley grade “clinic” and uncovered recordings of gross ethics violations are proof of that.

    Like a broken clock, the Muslims are right one time and about one thing.

    The west is decadent and we are due for a fall.

    Just sad that that what replaces it will likely be an even more odious and decadent system.
