A Harris County Grand Jury decides to not indict Planned Parenthood over those undercover videos.
Instead, the grand jury indicted the two anti-abortion activists responsible for making those undercover videos.
David Daleiden was indicted on a charges of Tampering with a Governmental Record and Prohibition of the Purchase and Sale of Human Organs. Sandra Merritt was indicted on a charge of Tampering with a Governmental Record.
The Harris County District Attorney’s office said the grand jury reviewed the evidence in the case for two months, finding Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast did not break the law.
“Nothing about today’s announcement in Harris County impacts the state’s ongoing investigation,” Governor Greg Abbott said, in a statement Monday. “The State of Texas will continue to protect life, and I will continue to support legislation prohibiting the sale or transfer of fetal tissue.”
“The fact remains that the videos exposed the horrific nature of abortion and the shameful disregard for human life of the abortion industry,” Attorney General Ken Paxton said, in a statement. “The state’s investigation of Planned Parenthood is ongoing.”
Attempts to reach Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast have been, so far, unsuccessful.
