Fetal Tissue Broker StemExpress Drops Lawsuit Against Center Of Medical Progress

David Daleiden heads the Center for Medical Progress, that released undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood officials negotiating plans for selling aborted baby body parts.

StemExpress, a fetal tissue broker that purchased aborted babies from Planned Parenthood and then sold them for a profit, today filed a notice of dismissal in its suit against Daleiden…

Daleiden’s 8th video showed StemExpress CEO Cate Dyer discussing the purchase of fetal body parts from Planned Parenthood. In this video, Dyer notes the importance of ensuring profitability for abortion providers. She can also be seen laughing as she describes the procedure for shipping the babies’ bodies so as not to alarm the recipients who will see their intact faces.

StemExpress sold the parts to universities and research facilities at a substantial markup. The body parts broker has been referred to the FBI and the U.S. Department of Justice for investigation and possible criminal prosecution for its role in the illegal trafficking of fetal body parts.

In August, McDermott, Will and Emery, the high-priced Chicago-based law firm that represented StemExpress inexplicably withdrew from the case over Dyer’s objections.

“Life Legal is thrilled that StemExpress has dropped its meritless lawsuit,” said Alexandra Snyder, Executive Director of the Life Legal Defense Foundation. “We have always maintained that the allegations raised in the lawsuit were baseless and that the suit was only filed to punish David Daleiden for exposing the truth about the StemExpress’ role in the illegal trafficking of fetal body parts.”

Life Legal continues to defend Daleiden in two other lawsuits filed against him by the National Abortion Federation and Planned Parenthood. ChristianNewsWire

8th Video Planned Parenthood Sells “A Lot” Of Aborted Babies, Stem Express Buyer Wants “50 Livers A Week”

The Center for Medical Progress has released an 8th video that “shows the CEO of StemExpress, LLC, a major buyer of fetal tissue from Planned Parenthood, admitting the company gets “a lot” of intact fetuses, suggesting “another 50 livers a week” would not be enough, and agreeing abortion clinics should profit from the sale. CMP

In the video, Cate Dyer, the CEO of StemExpress, is shown in a lunch meeting with undercover operatives posing as representatives of a biotech firm. Dyer is laughing about how StemExpress purchases fully intact aborted babies from Planned Parenthood. She laughs about how shippers of the aborted babies would give a warning to lab workers to expect such a baby.

“Oh yeah, if you have intact cases — which we’ve done a lot — we sometimes ship those back to our lab in its entirety,” she says.

“Tell the lab its coming,” she laughs about the intact unborn babies. “You know, open the box and go ‘Oh my God,’” Dyer adds.

Today, one day after Dyer attempted to rebut the videos by saying Planned Parenthood doesn’t sell fully intact aborted babies, CMP has released the full 8th video…

“What about intact specimens?” asks one of the actors. “Oh yeah, I mean if you have intact cases, which we’ve done a lot, we sometimes ship those back to our lab in its entirety,” replies Dyer. “Case” is the clinical term for an abortion procedure. An “intact case” refers to an intact abortion with a whole fetus. “The entire case?” asks an actor. “Yeah, yeah,” says Dyer. “The procurement for us, I mean it can go really sideways, depending on the facility, and then our samples are destroyed,” she explains past botched fetal dissections, “so we started bringing them back even to manage it from a procurement expert standpoint.”

Judge O’Donnell Rules Stem Express Planned Parenthood Videos Can be Released to the Public

lasuperiorcourtFree Speech wins! The Center for Medical Progress from release video of Stem Express officials.

In a tremendous legal victory today, Judge O’Donnell reversed the previous court order that prohibited the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) from releasing any video from a conversation with Catherine Dyer and other Stem Express employees that took place on May 22, 2015. The court noted that even if Stem Express prevails on their Penal Code 632 cause of action, “there is nothing in [that code section that] prevents the publication of information unlawfully procured through unlawful privacy violations.”

Judge O’Donnell emphasized the importance of Daleiden and the CMP’s Constitutional rights in this case stating that “the proposed injunction would be a prior restraint on Defendant’s right to free speech under the First Amendment.” This ruling paves the way for Daleiden and the CMP to publicize the conversation with Dyer and to continue to expose the ugly truth of fetal organ harvesting.

Catherine Short, Vice President of Legal Affairs for the Life Legal Defense Foundation and attorney for Daleiden and CMP commented on the court decision stating, “The legal impact of today’s ruling is huge, not only for the sake of exposing the truth about the secretive and lucrative business of trafficking fetal organs, but it is also a remarkable victory for free speech advocates.” Christian Newswire

Stem Express Breaks Ties With Planned Parenthood

Stem Express, the biomedical firm in the news for acquiring aborted baby tissue from Planned Parenthood and marketing it to research labs, has cut its ties with Planned Parenthood.  Could be the video, especially the 6th video, finding Planned Parenthood selling aborted baby parts without parent consent.

StemExpress, one of the tissue companies that works with Planned Parenthood, is cutting its ties with the women’s health organization after a series of sting videos that have prompted congressional inquiries, sources tell Politico.

The small biomedical tissue procurement company is distancing itself from Planned Parenthood after finding itself tangentially linked to what abortion opponents allege is Planned Parenthood’s illegal trafficking of fetal tissue and organs…

In two of the six videos released to date, former StemExpress technician Holly O’Donnell claims that she once saw another technician appear to obtain fetal tissue without a patient’s consent. StemExpress “unequivocally” denied the claim.

Court Rules Against Stem Express On Planned Parenthood Videos

lasuperiorcourtStem Express had filed a lawsuit seeking to suppress videos and information the Center for Medical Progress obtained in its undercover operation.  A judge in the Superior Court of California has ruled that StemExpress has no rights to the materials videos and documents produced by the Center for Medical Progress in its undercover investigation.

In a victory for the pro-life activists behind the expose’ videos that have caught Planned Parenthood selling aborted babies and their body parts for research, a judge has ruled the biotech firm StemExpress can’t take videos and documentation from them.

While the videos have focused on the Planned Parenthood abortion business, the biotech firm StemExpress, which buys and resells aborted baby body parts from the abortion giant, has filed a lawsuit seeking to block some information the Center for Medical Progress obtained in its three year undercover operation.

Last month, a court in California blocked the pro-life group from releasing any videos regarding certain meetings of the middleman, StemExpress.  The restraining order does not apply to the Planned Parenthood abortion business or even to StemExpress in its entirety, making it so additional videos were released.

Now, a Superior Court of the State of California  issued a decision Thursday in StemExpress v. The Center for Medical Progress, which prohibits a biomedical company from accessing the material of an investigative journalist exposing Planned Parenthood’s selling of fetal body parts.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Joanne O’Donnell said the firm is unlikely to prevail in its case to abrogate CMP’s First Amendment rights.  LifeNews

Stem Express Trying To Suppress Video That They Take ‘Fully Intact Fetuses’

David Daleidan, executive director of the Center for Medical Progress, on CNN Friday discussed the temporary restraining order and Stem Express.  Daleidan makes a shocking claim about the real reason Stem Express does not want the video shown.

“In a meeting with their top leadership, where their leadership admitted that they sometimes get fully intact fetuses shipped to their laboratory from the abortion clinics they work with, and that could be prima facie evidence of born alive infants. And so that’s why they’re trying to suppress that videotape and they’re very scared of it.”

Stem Express is discussed beginning at 3:23

In the fourth video Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountains VP & Medical Director Savita Ginde:

When the actors request intact fetal specimens, Ginde reveals that in PPRM’s abortion practice, “Sometimes, if we get, if someone delivers before we get to see them for a procedure, then we are intact.”  LifeNew

Los Angeles Superior Court Bars Pro-Life Group From Releasing Videos Of Stem Express Officials

lasuperiorcourt“The Los Angeles Superior Court order issued Tuesday prohibits the Center for Medical Progress from releasing any video of three high-ranking Stem Express officials taken at a restaurant in May.”

Reasonable expectation of privacy in a restaurant?  When asked by Hannity about local laws David Daleiden, founder of the Center For Medical Progress said, “The California law is about confidential communications not those that can be overheard by anyone walking by, such as a situation in a crowded restaurant like the situations in the two previous tapes.”  DailyCaller

StemExpress is playing litigious delay and stall tactics.

A temporary restraining order has been issued preventing an anti-abortion group from releasing any video of leaders of a California company that provides fetal tissue to researchers. The group is the same one that previously shot viral covert video of a Planned Parenthood leader discussing the sale of aborted fetuses for research.

The Los Angeles Superior Court order issued Tuesday prohibits the Center for Medical Progress from releasing any video of three high-ranking StemExpress officials taken at a restaurant in May. It appears to be the first legal action prohibiting the release of a video from the organization.

The Center for Medical Progress has released three surreptitiously recorded videos to date that have riled anti-abortion activists. The Senate is expected to vote before its August recess on a Republican effort to bar federal aid to Planned Parenthood in the aftermath of the videos’ release.

In a statement Wednesday, center leader David Daleiden said StemExpress was using “meritless litigation” to cover up an “illegal baby parts trade.”

“The Center for Medical Progress follows all applicable laws in the course of our investigative journalism work,” he said. AP

Planned Parenthood Partner Stem Express Offered Bulk Discounts On Aborted Baby Parts…

StemExpress, LLC is mentioned in the Planned Parenthood harvested-baby-parts video as  “one of the major” aborted baby parts purchasers. Stem Express has taken down its website for “maintenance.”

PPBody-Parts

StemExpress, the California-based company that serves as a middleman between Planned Parenthood and the organizations that seek body parts harvested from aborted babies, once advertised bulk discounts for baby organs and body parts. A screencap taken from a StemExpress page listing fetal liver products shows that the company openly boasted of bulk buying discounts available to new customers.

“Become a StemExpress customer today to receive 25% off your first order up to $1,000!” blasted an archived web page from 2012. TheFederalist
