CMP Statement on Planned Parenthood-allied National Abortion Federation's Attack on Free Speech
San Francisco, CA - The following is a statement released by the Center for Medical Progress concerning the National Abortion Federation's attack on the First Amendment right to free speech. Troy Newman, president of Operation Rescue, serves on the Board of the Center for Medical Progress and is a named defendant in the Federal lawsuit filed by the NAF that is attempting to block from the public videos and information gathered during an undercover journalistic investigation that relates to the sale of aborted baby body parts by Planned Parenthood.
The First Amendment liberties of freedom of speech and of the citizen press are under attack in the censorial lawsuit brought against CMP by the National Abortion Federation, Planned Parenthood's allies and proxy group. The National Abortion Federation is a criminal enterprise and a key partner in Planned Parenthood's late-term abortion and baby body parts business. NAF seeks a Preliminary Injunction gag-order to silence CMP from publishing the evidence of criminal activity between NAF and Planned Parenthood and to censor the video evidence already released. CMP's recently-filed opposition to NAF is available (with court-mandated redactions) here and includes:
