Statement by Live Action on PRENDA Vote

More Results of National Investigation into Practice to Come

Washington, D.C. –Today, Lila Rose, founder and president of Live Action, reacted to the vote on the Prenatal Non-Discrimination Act (PRENDA), which would ban the brutal practice of sex-selective abortion. Her statement comes on the heels of two new undercover videos showing that it is growing at an alarming rate in the United States, which can be seen at www.ProtectOurGirls.com.

“We applaud the brave leaders in Congress such as Rep. Trent Franks for leading the charge against the abhorrent practice of sex-selective abortion. The struggle to stop gendercide is a bipartisan issue–more Democrats voted in support of the ban than Republicans against—but the battle is far from over.

“We will continue to release the results of our national investigation into Planned Parenthood and other U.S. providers that are facilitating the brutal and lethal discrimination against girls in the womb. The public deserves to see the truth about how Planned Parenthood and their abortion industry allies, backed by the President, facilitate the late term targeting of girls, especially as we approach a historic election.”

Live Action has launched an educational campaign through www.ProtectOurGirls.com and plans to release more videos in the coming days. The investigation helps expose a practice that few Americans know about but that must be stopped.

Live Action is a youth led movement dedicated to building a culture of life and ending the human rights injustice of abortion. They use new media to educate the public about the humanity of the unborn and investigative journalism to expose threats against the vulnerable and defenseless. More information at LiveAction.org.
