Pro-life advocate Lila Rose: ‘There is a natural law out there that is higher than government’ [VIDEO]
Lila Rose became an activist against abortion at nine years of age in her parents’ California living room when she first realized that it amounts to the killing of a child.
Sixteen years later, this passionate, effective pro-life leader is the founder and president of Live Action, an organization throwing Planned Parenthood, NARAL, Emily’s List and other feminist groups into fits.
Lila Rose started conducting undercover video investigations in 2006 on abortion providers to help more see what happens in these places. Her efforts are not only successfully engaging young people in America, they are now reaching people across the globe.
Her social media platform on Facebook and Twitter is the most extensive in the pro-life movement as she continues to fight the secular, pro-death culture.
In this two-part Daily Caller video interview, Lila Rose says she hopes, “Years from now when history books are written about our culture, what I pray and what I believe they will say is we wandered from our founding principles, but we came right back and we embraced them more boldly than ever before.”
“And what are those principles? That we are endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights, the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” Rose continued. “There is a natural law out there that is higher than government and man-made law and that we were meant to model our laws after that inform us about the dignity of the person and therefore that person has rights which are inviolable. We cannot violate them. That’s what we need to return to.”
From her undercover investigations into abortion clinics, Live Action documents and exposes the offensive agenda of Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger, and her eugenic agenda that called for the reduction of “unfit” populations. Just this week Rep. Nancy Pelosi received the Margaret Sanger award from Planned Parenthood.
Rose’s work calls out the lucrative, powerful, political, unregulated industry of abortion-profiteers who work against any restrictions on abortions, including sex selection abortions or protecting survivors of a botched abortion. Undercover work by Live Action and Lila Rose in 17 different locations caught Planned Parenthood covering up sexual abuse and sex trafficking that came through their doors.
Inspired by Mother Theresa, Rose says the pro-life movement is only at five percent of the efforts needed.
“How many people even know about Kermit Gosnell?” she asks. “How many people even know that Planned Parenthood does abortions? How many people know about the risk to a woman of an abortion?”
“How many people have connected those dots? And so, we need to be out there connecting those dots, getting those messages out there, that educational media out there. And that will change politics. And that will change the face of a nation.”
