Indiana Attorney General Hill Joins 19 Others to Advocate for Release of Undercover Videos

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Attorneys general from 20 states filed a brief on Thursday, September 9 urging the Supreme Court of the United States to allow the release of barred videos from the Center for Medical Progress (CMP). Indiana's Attorney General Hill was among this number.


Many of the CMP videos were captured undercover during meetings of the National Abortion Federation. The videos expose allegedly illegal practices of Planned Parenthood and other organizations, including the sale of aborted fetal remains. In July, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals placed an order on the CMP and its president, David Daleiden, barring the release of additional recordings.  


“Pro-life Hoosiers extend their sincere appreciation to Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill for joining this effort by 19 other state attorneys general,” said Mike Fichter, President and CEO of Indiana Right to Life. “Hoosiers have a valid interest in knowing if any of the Center for Medical Progress’s videos include content from Planned Parenthood abortion facilities in Indiana.


“Since the Center for Medical Progress videos first emerged in 2015, we have learned about illegal disposal of aborted babies by an Indianapolis company because of a Missouri investigation prompted by the videos. We also know that Indiana University bought aborted baby brains for $200 each. The school is currently suing the state to continue research on aborted remains.”

In addition to Attorney General Hill, attorneys general from the following states signed this request: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
