Hellerstedt.

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.”

Rose statement on Texas judge dropping charge against Daleiden

(June 14, 2016) — Statement from Lila Rose, president and founder of the pro-life organization Live Action, on a Houston judge dismissing the misdemeanor charge against David Daleiden for allegedly attempting to buy aborted baby parts from Planned Parenthood during his undercover investigation in Texas:

“It’s incomprehensible that David Daleiden was charged with attempting to purchase baby body parts, but Planned Parenthood wasn’t charged for allegedly negotiating to sell them.  David’s intent was clear to the district attorney from the start:  He was posing as an organ buyer to expose the barbaric practice and end Planned Parenthood’s trafficking in baby parts.  The district attorney knew David never intended to buy organs, which is why this charge was bogus from the start.

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.

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.
