The Attorney General of California recently announced that he is filing 15 felony counts against the two undercover filmmakers from the Center for Medical Progress who have exposed Planned Parenthood in a series of videos.
David French, writing at National Review, points out that this is a case of selective prosecution. Back in 2014, a group known as Mercy for Animals released an undercover video that showed widespread animal abuse, they claimed, and cruelty at one of the largest duck farms in California. The state responded by investigating the farm. Apparently, in California, the lives of ducks are more important than the lives of unborn human beings.
The reality is that California is undeniably guilty of selective enforcement. It is using a law against these two activists that is not used against others in a similar situation.
For these two journalists and for the larger pro-life movement, at least in the state of California, the trial is only beginning.[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/316260258″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]
