Lila Rose, the president of Live Action, featured on the February 20, 2014 episode of the Christian Broadcasting Network’s The Brody File. Calling her a “pro-life prodigy,” Brody joined Rose in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where she spoke to students at Sacred Heart Catholic School about the need to play an active part in the “spiritual battle” against the evil of abortion.
When it comes to the pro-life movement, according to one teenager at the Minneapolis talk, “there’s definitely passion. Like, everyone I talk to – everyone who supports the cause is just super-into it. There’s no one who’s just, like, mediocre about it.” This is exactly the phenomenon Nancy Keenan lamented while stepping down as president of NARAL in 2012.
Brody says of Rose: “Lila Rose is to Planned Parenthood what Jerry was to Tom, and Roadrunner was to Wile E. Coyote.” Considering Live Action’s explicit goal of defunding the abortion industry of all taxpayer money, this is a fair assessment. But the real thorn in Planned Parenthood’s side is the truth – about abortion, about human embryology, and about human dignity. And Live Action is simply one of the most effective vehicles for delivering that truth.
