Caught in the LifeLight: LSN Interviews Lila Rose


By Peter J. Smith

WASHINGTON, D.C., June 16, 2010 ( – 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. 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?

This young heroine of the Abortion Wars spoke at the 2010 Walk for Life in Ottawa and was spellbinding.The crimes she has exposed has resulted in the shutting down of several abortuaries in the US and she is recruiting other young women to do the same.Her picture appears in many abortuaries as if it’s a wanted Photo.Please pray for her and her work.This youing braveheart of a woman is actually doing something and should give the rest of us hope and courage if only to speak out or put a pro-life bumper sticker on your car or wear a pro-life T shirt to the grocery store.
