Lila Rose on GOP platform defunding Planned Parenthood: The corrupt cycle of Planned Parenthood campaign contributions in return for forced taxpayer support must stop
(July 13, 2016) — Statement from Lila Rose, president and founder of the national pro-life organization Live Action, on the Republican Party Platform Committee adopting platform language that calls for defunding Planned Parenthood:
“Taxpayers shouldn’t be forced to support Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion chain that commits over 320,000 abortions each year. While the American people are told their money doesn’t go to fund abortions, the billions in taxpayer funding Planned Parenthood has collected over the years has freed up money elsewhere in its budget, allowing it to build more abortion facilities and buy more abortion equipment.

Rose: Horrific summer camp let students dissect brains of viable aborted children
(June 24, 2016) Statement from Lila Rose, president and founder of the national pro-life organization Live Action, on the House Select Panel’s discovery that the University of New Mexico provided brains of viable aborted children to summer camp students to dissect:
“The select panel’s gruesome discovery that summer camp students were given whole brains of viable aborted children to dissect shows the barbaric nature of the abortion industry and the total disrespect for basic human rights that its allies share. At 24-28 weeks old, many of these babies could have survived outside the womb; instead, they were aborted by Southwestern Women’s Options and their body parts given to students to carve up.”
