WASHINGTON, D.C., June 16, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Few youth have managed to captivate so completely the pro-life movement as Lila Rose, whose courageous undercover investigative work has helped to blow the lid on a culture of illegality and deception at Planned Parenthood facilities.
Rose is President of Live Action Films, the group that has conducted investigative stings of abortion centers and released videos to the public documenting their devastating findings. The 20-year-old pro-life heroine displayed an eloquent clarity and confidence at Wednesday’s press conference at the Capitol Visitor’s Center in Washington, D.C., which addressed the findings of a GAO report showing that well over a billion taxpayer dollars have funded abortion groups for the past 6 to 7 years.
That Rose should possess these qualities is little wonder – like a Daniel in the lion’s den, she has dared to enter Planned Parenthood facilities disguised as a 13, 14, or 15-year-old girl. Her mission is to expose the “abortion-first mentality” of abortion facility employees, a mentality that continues to put young girls at risk for continued sexual exploitation by predators.
LifeSiteNews.com caught up with Rose after the press conference. She graciously agreed to a short interview, in which she sketched out some of her thoughts on the pro-life movement, her own pro-life background, and what individual states are doing to address the rampant abuse of law that she, Live Action, and other pro-life investigators have uncovered.
LSN: Louisiana just passed a bill that would require all abortion facilities under the same licensed owner to close down, if one of their clinics were found in violation of the law. What is your take on that and do you think that is a good strategy for other states to emulate?
