Lila Rose and her Historically Important Campaign for Human Rights
Guerilla anti-abortion videographer Lila Rose was interviewed on the "BreakPoint This Week" radio program where host John Stonestreet asked her how her anti-choice activism compared to the civil rights movement, prompting Rose to declare that her efforts are just as important as the efforts to end slavery and the Holocaust, and perhaps even more so since she is dedicated to fighting the "greatest human rights crisis ... our country has ever seen":
Stonestreet: I've heard you kind of talk about the civil rights movement as, as some level as where you get some of the inspiration. Where do you see the connections between the human rights struggle that they were involved in and the human rights struggle that you're involved in?
Rose: Of course, we'll there's a fundamental connection. I mean, the civil rights movements that have been fought in this country against slavery, against segregation and discrimination, against even women's suffrage have all been done because we want to protect basic human rights and we want a country that is a place that we're proud to live in, that our neighbor, the person next to us, their human rights are protected too. And so the fight for the most fundamental human rights, which is life - and it's in our Declaration of Independence, the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness - this is the defining civil rights movement of our country because if we don't get the right to life right, if we don't protect that basic foundation, then we can't survive as a nation, all the other rights are meaningless.
And especially it's a concern because, in terms of victims, we're talking fifty million children that have been killed since Roe v Wade, since abortion became legal. We're missing fifty million children, boys and girls who have been attacked and killed in the womb, torn apart and aborted, and that's a human rights crisis of a proportion we've never even seen before, it's hard to even imagine.
So I think that history will look back on this time as we look back on the anti-slavery movement and even the movement to try to, you know, be truthful about what was happening with the Holocaust and try to do something to stand up to fight for the rights of those that were being persecuted like the Jews in Germany, history will look back and say "what did we do?" We're living in the middle of the greatest human rights crisis I believe our country has ever seen; what are we going to do about it?
