HOUSTON (AP) - One of the anti-abortion activists indicted after making undercover videos about Planned Parenthood has turned herself in to Texas authorities.

Sandra Merritt appeared in a Houston courtroom Wednesday and posted bond, which was reduced from $10,000 to $2,000.

The other indicted activist, David Daleiden, is scheduled to turn himself in Thursday.

Both were charged with tampering with a governmental record. Daleiden also was indicted on a misdemeanor count related to purchasing human organs.

The videos alleged Planned Parenthood illegally sold fetal tissue to researchers for profit.

The grand jury that indicted the two on Jan. 25 also investigated Planned Parenthood but concluded it committed no wrongdoing.
