Joan of Arc was about sixteen when she led the French army against the invading English. Talk about a model for pro-life women: bold, obedient to the promptings of the Holy Spirit, and not afraid to stand up for the truth against a mighty foe.
Well, the spirit of Joan of Arc lives on and is beautifully exemplified in a lovely little package of Pentecost power named Lila Rose. She has taken on the biggest butcher in the world -- Planned Parenthood by exposing their cooperation with statutory rape. Posing as a 13 or 14-year-old minor with an adult boyfriend, Lila has filmed Planned Parenthood counselors in several states advising her to lie about her age to protect the rapist. This spunky young woman recently told a pro-life audience, "I am dedicating my life to ending the injustice of abortion." Accepting an award for her activism, she challenged her generation to be the ones who end the killing. She's committed to the battle and all indications are that she's up for the challenge. Joan of Arc would be proud.
Lila Rose is the founder and president of Live Action Films. They have done exposes of Planned Parenthood in Indiana, Arizona, and Tennessee which have shown them enabling the on-going criminal sexual abuse of young girls by adult predators. Live Action has uncovered six PP facilities in three states that flaunt mandatory reporting laws and aid criminal abusers. If the issue were anything but abortion, this courageous young woman would be featured on Oprah, Larry King Live, and all the nighttime talk shows. She won't be -- so get the word out. Pass this on. Lila Rose is Planned Parenthood's worst nightmare: a beautiful, articulate, pro-life activist. She's the epitome of Teddy Roosevelt's advice to "speak softly, and carry a big stick." Go, Lila Rose!
