GOP presidential candidate former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee slammed Houston prosecutors for indicting the activists who used hidden cameras to record Planned Parenthood officials allegedly attempting to trade body parts from aborted babies.

“Harvesting human organs is beyond barbaric, it’s unimaginably grotesque and evil,” Mike Huckabee said. “And it’s a sick day in America when our government punishes those who expose evil with a smartphone—while accommodating those who perform it with a scalpel.”

After a two-month-long investigation into Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, the Harris County District Attorney’s office in Houston, Texas, indicted the two individuals who created the undercover videos. They did not indict Planned Parenthood officials.

David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt were indicted by a grand jury for “tampering with a governmental record, a second degree felony.” WMUR reports, “Daleiden was also indicted on the count of prohibition of the purchase and sale of human organs, a class A misdemeanor, according to the Harris County district attorney.”
