He won’t settle the case against him by accepting a probation offer.
That’s the word from lawyers for an activist who faces charges in Houston connected to an undercover film that tried to show Planned Parenthood attempting to sell body parts.
“I feel incredibly honored to be welcomed by you in Houston–and I feel grateful for all of the support” said David Daleiden to a couple of dozen supporters, a short time after surrendering himself at the Harris County Sheriff’s Office Thursday.
Daleiden, who is free on a $3000 bond, said the case against him and another activist clearly sends a loud–and disturbing message to the rest of the country.
“I think we all know that every day that goes by that the Texas authorities do not prosecute Planned Parenthood for their illegal trade in body parts, they are sending a message tot he entire country” Daleiden said.
However, Daleiden appeared to take comfort in the support he was getting.
“You are all sending an equally strong–and a stronger message–that the children of Texas–and the children of Houston and their body parts are not for sale” Daleiden said.
For it’s part, Planned Parenthood said “the wheels of justice have only begun to roll.”
