DaVinci Biosciences and DV Biologics are being prosecuted in a criminal case brought by the Orange County District Attorney’s office in California. In the now-famous undercover investigation by undercover Pro-Life journalists at the California-based Center for Medical Progress (CMP), sister companies DaVinci Biosciences and DV Biologics were exposed as key players in the illegal trafficking and sale of human body parts aborted at local Planned Parenthood facilities.
The tissue procurement businesses contracted with Planned Parenthood Orange County and Planned Parenthood San Bernadino to obtain freshly-aborted children whose organs and extremities were harvested and sold by the company at profit to researchers. The CMP blog reports:
For eight years, Planned Parenthood supplied aborted baby hearts, lungs, brains, and intestines to DV Biologics, which DV Biologics then resold for profit. In exchange for merely providing access to aborted baby body parts, Planned Parenthood received kickback contributions from DaVinci Biosciences over the course of their eight-year contract.
The Orange County Register reports that the lawsuit was filed in the Orange County Superior Court on Tuesday. The case alleges that the companies “advertised and sold hundreds of units of fetal tissue and stem cells to research facilities around the world, collecting tens of thousands of dollars in revenue,” says the Register.
The case is a welcomed reprieve from the blatantly anti-Life attacks on Pro-Life whistleblowers by law enforcement officials in both Texas and California. First, corrupt Harris County D.A. Devon Anderson levied felony and misdemeanor indictments against CMP leader David Daleiden and his colleague, Sandra Merritt, after impaneling a Grand Jury whose investigation proved to be a sham.
Meanwhile, California Attorney General – who has been a Planned Parenthood bedfellow on numerous occasions – raided David Daleiden’s home and took many of his personal belongings, including all of Daleiden’s video footage depicting Planned Parenthood’s role in the illegal trafficking of human body parts. In July, the Harris County D.A.’s office was forced to drop the charges brought against Daleiden and Merritt.
More good news came in September, when Congress’ Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives held StemExpress – a business just like DaVinci Biosciences – in contempt of Congress for refusing to cooperate with federal subpoenas aimed at getting to the bottom of the lucrative relationship between Planned Parenthood and the tissue procurement company. The announcement of Tuesday’s criminal case indicates that Planned Parenthood’s carefully-crafted house of cards has buckled.
“The wheels of justice are beginning to turn against Planned Parenthood and their corrupt business partners in the illicit trade in aborted baby body parts,” said Daleiden. “Planned Parenthood is not above the law, and law enforcement and elected representatives everywhere must now hold Planned Parenthood accountable for their barbaric profiteering off of pregnant women and the body parts of their aborted children.”
