A Texas grand jury investigating video-recorded allegations that Planned Parenthood was illegally selling fetal tissue has instead indicted two of the people who made the controversial undercover videos.
The grand jury in Harris County indicted David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt on a felony charge of tampering with a governmental record. Daleiden was also indicted on a misdemeanor charge of “prohibition of the purchase and sale of human organs,” Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson said in a statement.
The grand jury declined to indict anyone from Planned Parenthood of the Gulf Coast — the initial target of the investigation. Planned Parenthood officials said violence against clinics rose dramatically as the videos were released in mid-2015.
