When a grand jury indicts the very people who report a crime, rather than indicting the criminals, something goes clearly wrong. Today in Harris County, rather than prosecuting the people who butcher and sell preborn children, a grand jury set sights on investigative reporters from the Center for Medical Progress. Instead of raising questions about criminal practices in abortion mills, the grand jury penalized the Center for Medical Progress for exercising their First Amendment rights.
The outcome conceals the greater crime of dismembering preborn children and demonstrates the need for a law to stop these brutal, inhumane practices. Texas Right to Life is proud that Governor Greg Abbott re-affirmed his commitment to investigate the criminal activity at the abortion mills, and we are confident that he and his team will achieve what the Harris County kangaroo court failed to do.
