Last year, the Harris County District Attorney's Office opened an investigation into a video filmed inside a Houston Planned Parenthood clinic allegedly showing staff members discussing the selling of fetal body parts. On Monday, jurors cleared Planned Parenthood of any wrongdoing.
Instead, the grand jury indicted activists David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt for their involvement in making the video. Daleiden faces a felony charge of tampering with a governmental record and a misdemeanor count related to purchasing human organs. Merritt is charged with tampering with a governmental record.
