An anti-abortion activist who was indicted last month for making undercover videos that claimed Planned Parenthood illegally sold fetal tissue for profit surrendered Thursday to authorities in Texas.

David Daleiden appeared in a Houston courtroom and posted $3,000 bond. Sandra Merritt, another activist also charged in connection with the videos, turned herself in Wednesday.
