Judge Rules Against StemExpress – Allows Video of Execs Joking About ‘Fetal Cadavers’

The Center for Medical Progress posted a short video Friday showing a StemExpress executive joking about receiving intact fetal cadavers from abortions, publishing the footage shortly after a Los Angeles judge dissolved a temporary restraining order against its release.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Joanne O’Donnell ruled Friday against StemExpress, the California company seeking to stop the pro-life group from releasing undercover footage of its executives at a restaurant in May, citing the center’s First Amendment rights.

The center then wasted no time in posting a two-minute video trailer that featured footage from previously released video along with a new section with Cate Dyer, CEO of StemExpress.

Ms. Dyer is shown paying the check after a lunch with undercover investigators as she tells them to give her company’s lab a warning before shipping fetal cadavers.

“Oh, yeah, if you have intact cases, which we’ve done a lot, we sometimes ship those back to our lab in its entirety,” Ms. Dyer says in the video.

“Tell the lab its coming. They don’t want to open the box and go ‘Oh my God!’” she adds with a laugh.
