Mind and Destiny

“I make no pretension to patriotism. So long as my voice can be heard ... I will hold up America to the lightning scorn of moral indignation. In doing this, I shall feel myself discharging the duty of a true patriot; for he is a lover of his country who rebukes and does not excuse its sins. It is righteousness that exalteth a nation while sin is a reproach to any people.”- Frederick Douglass

Grand Jury Indictment

A Texas grand jury investigating Planned Parenthood has decided to indicted the anti-choice extremists who tried to frame the organization instead.  The grand jury confirmed, that it was David Daleiden and the anti-choice Center for Medical Progress who broke the law, not Planned Parenthood.
After a two-month-long investigation, the grand jury cleared Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, but indict David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt for tampering with a governmental record, a second-degree felony, and Daleiden was also indicted on the count of prohibition of the purchase and sale of human organs, a class A misdemeanor, according to the Harris County district attorney.
Daleiden is a project lead for the group that produced a series of videos depicting Planned Parenthood officials discussing fetal tissue and appearing to talk about the price for such tissue.  He illegally recorded, maliciously edited videos sparked a wave of witch-hunt investigations in Congress and the states.
Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson explained: "We were called upon to investigate allegations of criminal conduct by Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast.  As I stated at the outset of this investigation, we must go where the evidence leads us.  All the evidence uncovered in the course of this investigation was presented to the grand jury.  I respect their decision on this difficult case."
Eric Ferrero, vice president of communications for Planned Parenthood Federation of America pointed out:"As the dust settles and the truth comes out, it's become totally clear that the only people who engaged in wrongdoing are the criminals behind this fraud, and we're glad they're being held accountable." 
Planned Parenthood maintains that it does not profit from the sale of fetal tissue and only recovers its cost.  After the videos raised controversy, Planned Parenthood announced it would no longer accept any reimbursement.
