Anti-abortion group wins free speech ruling over secretly recorded tape

Must read

Free speech rights should allow an anti-abortion group to release secretly recorded videos of discussions with a California company that provides foetal tissue for research, a US judge said.

A tentative ruling today by Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Joanne O’Donnell would dissolve an existing temporary restraining order blocking the Centre for Medical Progress from releasing the videos.

The case arose as the centre released videos of Planned Parenthood officials discussing providing aborted foetal organs for research.

The company StemExpress then realised its officials also were recorded, and it pre-emptively filed suit to prevent those videos from being seen.

The judge says StemExpress likely will win its claim of privacy violations.
But she says that does not trump the centre’s first amendment rights.
