Statement by Lila Rose on showing of Live Action videos at Congressional hearing
(October 8, 2015) — “Live Action’s “Inhuman” and “Profits from Pain” investigative videos shown at the House hearing today once again shattered the myth that the abortion industry cares about women’s health. Abortion facilities are more than willing to collect thousands of dollars for late-term abortions and then let women go through labor by themselves, delivering their dead babies in hotel room toilets with no medical assistance whatsoever.
Statement by Lila Rose on assisted suicide legalized in CA
(October 6, 2015) — “It breaks my heart that my home state of California is legalizing assisted suicide. Instead of focusing on end-of-life care and pain management, this law effectively tells sufferers and their families that it’s better off if they are dead. Besides their physical suffering, those with potentially terminal illnesses struggle emotionally and mentally, and many feel like burdens to family and friends. When we tell them that physician-assisted suicide is even an option, it becomes a subtle form of pressure.
“Additionally, terminal diagnoses are often wrong. Many of us have heard of someone who was diagnosed with sixth months to live who recovered and was living a full life five years later.
“If we as a society think that suicide is never the answer, how does allowing a physician to commit it make it any less wrong? Helping someone to commit suicide is neither loving nor merciful. The healthy should fight for the sick, not tell them that they will help kill them.”
Statement by Lila Rose on Planned Parenthood funding
(September 30, 2015) – “President Obama and some in Congress have opted to keep taxpayer funds flowing to Planned Parenthood, even though the nation’s largest abortion chain is under four congressional investigations, and several state investigations, looking into at least three criminal acts it has committed.
“Yesterday, to get that money, Cecile Richards continued to mislead the American people by claiming that the horrific videos showing her employees talking about illegally harvesting and selling baby body parts were deceptively edited, even though a forensic analysis released just yesterday determined that there was no evidence of manipulation.
