Rose: Planned Parenthood pushing to make it illegal for media to publish undercover footage of its facilities

(May 31, 2016) — Following is a statement from Lila Rose, president and founder of Live Action, on a bill in the California State Assembly sponsored by Planned Parenthood that would make it a crime to publish certain conversations with health care providers. Under the bill, a person posting a recording or video of an interaction with an abortion facility employee or volunteer could be prosecuted:

“For years, undercover journalists have documented Planned Parenthood employees covering up for sex traffickers, failing to report child sexual abusers, and trafficking in baby body parts. Rather than be more transparent with the public, Planned Parenthood wants to make it a crime for the media to publish evidence that it might be doing something illegal.

Viral video is turning a third of “pro-choice” women against abortion

Included:  Man-on-the-street interviews showing reactions to the video

(May 24, 2016) — A new four-minute viral video is causing over a third — 34 percent — of “pro-choice” women surveyed to view abortion “less favorably.”  And 28 percent of pro-choice women who watched the video stated there should be more restrictions on abortion.

The women watched the D&E Abortion Procedures video, part of Live Action’s new “Abortion Procedures” video series, which features an OB/GYN and former abortionist using medically accurate animations to give viewers a window into the womb during an abortion and show how developed a baby is during the procedure.  The videos were produced in conjunction with a team of OB/GYNs, former abortionists, and other physicians, and have been viewed over 42 million times to become the most-watched pro-life videos in history.

Lila Rose on Donald Trump wanting to change the GOP platform on abortion

(April 21, 2016) Statement from Lila Rose, president and founder of the pro-life organization Live Action, on Donald Trump wanting to change the GOP platform to include abortion exceptions for rape, incest, and life of the mother:

“Rape and incest are horrific injustices, and those who commit these acts should always be punished to the full extent of the law. U.S. law forbids the use of the death penalty as a punishment for rapists, yet current law permits killing the innocent preborn children conceived in rape. Abortion should not be held up as a pathway to healing from rape or incest, as it doesn’t undo the crime; it just adds more violence to what the survivor has already endured.
