Supreme Court rebuffs anti-abortion activists in Planned Parenthood suit





The Supreme Court of the USA rejected bid by anti-abortion activists on Monday to restrict a Planned Parenthood lawsuit by accusing them of illegally recording videos of abortion providers to try to falsely show the illicit sale of aborted fetal tissue for profit.



The judges refused to hear an appeal by activists of a lower court's refusal to dismiss the fraud, invasion of privacy and other claims under California law filed in the civil lawsuit by Planned Parenthood, a provider of medical care and abortion for women.


Activist David Daleiden and his group, the Center for Medical Progress, had argued they were exercising their right to free speech under the U.S. Constitution in surreptitiously making the recordings.
