Center for Medical Progress is a 501(c)3 non-profit pro-life organization of citizen journalists. Their main concern is "contemporary bioethical issues that impact human dignity"; they "oppose any interventions, procedures, and experiments that exploit the unequal legal status of any class of human beings."

The organization is based out of Irvine, California. The executive director is David Daleiden, a former employee of Lila Rose's Live Action.

Their investigative journalism into the activities of Planned Parenthood's senior directors has generated nationwide outrage for exposing the harvest and sale of fetal body parts.

Planned Parenthood

Center for Medical Progress has so severely damaged Planned Parenthood that Planned Parenthood's biggest backers are pressing for an investigation of the journalists.[1] Republican Attorneys General in eight states have started investigations of Planned Parenthood. Congress has been called on to investigate and strip Planned Parenthood of funding.

In an interview with radio-host Mark Levin, executive director David Daleiden announced he has a dozen more videos coming and that this latest work was a combination of 2.5 years of undercover journalism.

Breitbart tactics

They picked the target, undercover journalism, release edited video to the public, release an unedited version, wait for all the excuses to be given, then a week or two later—hit them with another video. This tactic was successful in the targeting of ACORN that Breitbart employed as did Lila Rose's abortion journalism.
