Lila Rose Chosen As Operation Rescue’s 2008 Person Of The Year

Wichita, KS — Operation Rescue announces that Lila Rose, a 20-year old UCLA student that has made national headlines exposing wrong-doing at abortion clinics, is the recipient of its 2008 Person of the Year Malachi Award.

“Lila Rose exemplifies the new wave of pro-life activism and best reflects Operation Rescue’s own efforts to expose illegal conduct in our nation’s abortion mills,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “Her work has helped raise public awareness of the seedy underbelly of the abortion industry and has helped to launch criminal investigations that we pray will eventually hold out-of-control abortionists accountable for their criminal acts.”

Lila Rose is the president of Live Action Films and has released a number of undercover sting videos of Planned Parenthood employees coaching girls to cover up for men who are committing statutory rape.

Each year Operation Rescue presents the Malachi Award to pro-life activists who are impacting the nation for the cause of life. The award is named after an aborted baby that was discovered in an abortion clinic dumpster, whose image has been used nationally to bring attention to the desperate plight of the pre-born.

Previous recipients include Dr. Johnny Hunter of LEARN, who is exposing the devestating effects of abortion on the African-American community, Leslee Unruh, who spearheaded efforts to ban abortion in South Dakota, and Phill Kline, the Kansas prosecutor whose abortion investigations have led to 107 criminal charges against Planned Parenthood.

    We have been very impressed with the courage of Lila Rose, and her articulate presentation of the message of life! She, and those working with her, have done an excellent expose of those who profit from baby-killing and who endanger vulnerable young women. We thank the Lord for this rising “Joshua Generation” who are creative and tenacious in their pursuit of TRUTH. Congratulations, Lila Rose, and thank you, OR, for creating a forum to recognize these “warriors for LIFE!”

    God must be smiling a huge smile for the work His children, chosen by Him, are doing to expose the ugly lies of satan through Planned Parenthood and the rest. My wife, Nancy, ran Living Alternatives in Medford, OR., for 7+ years. The need is massive and the young women who are just children themselves need to be uplifted in prayer, and first hand help by people who will stand and speak truth! This is a Spiritual battle of the 100%! Bless you Lisa and all who answer the call!
    May God open all the ears and hearts!

    Good choice, OR; but I’m a little baffled by the line about Lila “exposing wrongdoing in abortion [mills]”…what have they ever done right in those places ?! No honor among thieves, and there’s no right way to do a wrong thing…All best!

    Thank God for people like Lila Rose

    Will all her work and the cases against Tiller and PP be dropped when the Freedom of Choice Act gets into law?

    Let’s ask God to take control. He will
