David Daleiden, the 26-year-old founder of the Center for Medical Progress, has received a lot of press recently for his undercover videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s sale of “baby body parts,” as he puts it. The video sparked widespread pitchfork reactions amongst conservatives.
Let’s dig a little deeper into Daleiden’s insane plot to expose the baby-killing evils of Planned Parenthood. It all started back in 2013 when Daleiden, a longtime pro-life enthusiast, became inspired to develop an elaborate plan to infiltrate a Planned Parenthood clinic upon learning that not just anyone can waltz through the front door of the clinic.
He created a fake company called Biomax Procurement Services LLC and posed as Robert Daoud Sarkis, a fake employee of said company. He even registered his fake company with the California Secretary of State and created fake Facebook profiles for his fake employees.
Daleiden had previously raised $120,000 for his cause from unspecified donors and set off for various Planned Parenthood clinics and abortion conferences with six paid actors posing as the Biomax employees in tow. He kept up his fabricated persona for over two years, of course with a hidden camera always present. He chatted up and flirted with conference-goers often times using alcohol to get answers out of his subjects.
And of course, the grand finale of the whole ordeal was probably when he filmed himself inside of a Planned Parenthood clinic assisting the researchers in harvesting fetal tissue, subsequently upsetting a lot of pro-life enthusiasts.
If you haven’t heard about the conclusion of the story, I’ll provide it for you: Daleiden’s undercover videos were released online at a crucial time for politics; right before the Republican debates, conveniently adding fuel to the Planned Parenthood fire that was already burning quite furiously. Whether or not the timing was on purpose hasn’t been explicitly stated, but inference can prove to be a powerful tool here.
David Daleiden might indeed be a woman-hating criminal mastermind, but we’ve got to give him credit for his undying dedication to his clever plot.
In conclusion, I’ll let this quote from The Washington Post speak for itself:
“It is clear [Daleiden] acted fraudulently and unethically — and perhaps illegally…yet it is Planned Parenthood, not Mr. Daleiden, that is currently subject to four separate congressional investigations.”
