California Attorney General Kamala Harris, whose Department of Justice raided the home of a pro-life activist Tuesday afternoon, has financial ties with Planned Parenthood.
Harris, who is running for U.S. Senate as a Democrat, has a petition on her campaign page asking visitors to sign in support of preventing Planned Parenthood from being defunded. She also received $15,000 in campaign donations from the nation’s largest abortion provider during her re-election campaign in 2014.
Harris’s office controls the California DOJ, which recently raided the home of David Daleiden, the journalist behind the undercover videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s scheme to sell organs harvested from aborted babies. During the raid, authorities reportedly seized damning, yet-to-be-released video footage that would expose more of Planned Parenthood’s organs-for-cash setup.
Last year, Harris publicly spoke out against Senate Republicans for attempting to defund the nation’s largest abortion provider, and applauded Planned Parenthood’s work. She also supported a California bill, which was signed into law last year, that forces crisis pregnancy centers to inform their clients of where they can get an abortion.
As The Federalist reported in January, Daleiden is currently facing criminal charges in Texas for the purchase and sale of human organs, a misdemeanor, and with tampering with a governmental record, a felony. Planned Parenthood, whose employees have been caught in multiple undercover videos haggling over the price of human organs harvested from aborted babies, has not been charged with any criminal or legal wrongdoing.
As The Federalist reported, the district attorney who indicted Daleiden has received more than $25,000 in campaign contributions from the defense attorney for abortionist Douglas Karpen, who has been described as the Kermit Gosnell of Texas.
