Live Action, the new media pro-life group responsible for recent undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood aiding and abetting child sex trafficking, has teamed up with Students for Life of America, the nation’s largest pro-life youth organization, to launch a pro-life YouTube video contest for youth who want show why Congress must de-fund Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider.
The contest is open to all high-school and college-age youth (14 to 25). Video entries must be under 5 minutes long and should explain why Congress must de-fund Planned Parenthood of its $363 million in taxpayer subsidies. The deadline for entry is Monday, March 7th at midnight. The top video will win a $1000 prize, a runner-up will receive $500, and Third Prize will receive a Survivors Pro-Life Training Camp Scholarship ($400 value).
“America’s youth see the corruption inside Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry,” said Live Action president Lila Rose. “Visual media is a powerful tool to expose the injustice of abortion from Planned Parenthood’s aiding and abetting of sex trafficking to its violent destruction of the ultimate victim of abortion, the unborn child. This generation is eager to use visual media to communicate the truth about abortion.”
Kristan Hawkins, Executive Director of Students for Life of America (SFLA), says the contest helps show that America’s future is pro-life: “A majority of Americans are now pro-life, and this is in large part because of a new pro-life generation of young people speaking up for the victims of abortion who cannot speak for themselves. This generation will see the end of abortion in America, and they want to get started right now – de-funding Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider. There are simply no excuses why Congress should continue funding Planned Parenthood for a single day longer.”
