My Faith Votes interviewed Lila Rose, president of the pro-life organization Live Action and host of the podcast “The Lila Rose Show,” to gain her perspective on the current political landscape when it comes to protecting life. Lila is one of the most influential voices on sanctity of life issues because she is unafraid to challenge the secular worldview that has undergirded abortion worldwide.
The last year has seen dramatic contrasts between two very different ideologies on life playing out in state legislatures. For example, look no further than the state of Alabama’s complete ban on abortions versus the state of New York’s endorsement of all abortions up until the moment of birth.
Overall, though, Lila says 2019 has been a strong year for pro-life legislation. Years of work building a network of pro-life policymakers and campaigning to elect pro-life candidates has begun to pay off, with states like Alabama, Georgia, and others finally passing pro-life legislation like the so-called heartbeat bills and abortion bans.
Abortion may be the most important issue for Christian voters, and abortion-rights supporters are equally as animated on the issue. Yet, when it comes to getting out their message via social media, only one group seems to fall victim to biased censorship — pro-lifers. Big Tech companies like Facebook and Twitter, which support the abortion industry, are silencing pro-life organizations like Lila’s.
And with the string of 2019 state-level pro-life successes Lila mentions, no wonder social media giants have moved to censor her and Live Action’s more than 3.6 million social media followers. Every day they reach millions of people with educational resources that expose the horrors of the abortion industry.
Lila emphasizes opportunities at the state level, rather than the national level, as a key strategy that is seeing success. She suggests pro-life advocates focus on electing pro-life super majorities into office.
According to Lila, change begins to happen when individual states stop taking cues from the national government.
