for our Pro-Life Movement.
First the heavens pour snow with reckless abandon on our annual March. Then one of our heroes gets indicted.
Indicted for “offering to buy human organs.”
Daleiden himself has noted that a buyer can only deal with a seller. But, in fact, the Houston grand-jury indictment fails an even more basic test of reason.
No one involved thinks that our man intended to purchase human organs. Everyone involved knows now that he intended to expose Planned Parenthood. He may have presented himself as a buyer, but everyone now knows that was part of his ruse.
It is simply impossible to be guilty of intentionally faking and also be guilty of really trying to do the thing you were pretending to be doing. Someone who yells “Fire” in a crowded movie theater (when there is, in fact, no fire) is guilty of dangerously misleading people. But he isn’t guilty of starting a fire.
This indictment is profoundly irrational. There is something rotten in the State of Denmark (Houston.)
