Videographer behind the deceptively-edited 2015 hidden-camera videos that sought to do to Planned Parenthood what James O'Keefe did to ACORN. Operatives from Daleiden's anti-abortion group, the Center for Medical Progress, claimed to represent a "fetal tissue procurement company," and met with Planned Parenthood executives, surreptitiously filming their casually discussions about how to abort a fetus while preserving its organs, and estimating the price for procuring such specimens.

It is legal to be reimbursed for the costs associated with handling tissue donations, and numerous investigations by credible organizations have found no illegal actions by Planned Parenthood reps in the videos, but the group's President promptly apologized for the "tone and statements" made in the first video. Daleiden's team has released further videos along the same lines, leading to nationwide attempts to eviscerate federal and state funding for Planned Parenthood.
