Center For Medical Progress Slammed In Court; Planned Parenthood Website Hacked
David Daleidan’s team at the Center for Medical Progress, a group decrying abortions, has been slapped with a restraining order that is barring them from releasing videos featuring conversations with officials from StemExpress, a fetal tissue donation company. The Center for Medical Progress is the same group that came after Planned Parenthood, accusing them of illegally selling deceased babies’ body parts for profit. The restraining order is in place until August 19 when a hearing will be held for the anti-abortion group and StemExpress.
Simultaneously, Planned Parenthood’s website shut down on July 29 after it was hacked by whom the organization is calling anti-abortion “extremists.” The website was hacked using DDoS procedure which floods it with traffic, resultantly blocking readers from entering its pages. Dawn Laguens, Planned Parenthood’s executive vice president, released a statement saying: “This is a new low for anti-abortion extremists; 200,000 people a day count on Planned Parenthood’s website for accurate health information. Blocking people from accessing information on the full range of sexual and reproductive health…only shows how far opponents of safe and legal abortion will go.” So far, no one has claimed responsibility for the breach.
