Preview of ProLife Con: Lila Rose

by Krystle Gabele

January 7, 2011

On January 24, FRC will be holding ProLifeCon. We have several amazing speakers lined up to discuss the issues impacting the pro-life online community.

Lila Rose, President of LiveAction, is one of our featured speakers, and I am excited to hear about her experiences exposing corruption and illegal activity within Planned Parenthood. Lila is also a recipient of a Life Prize from the Gerard Health Foundation and Young Leader Award from the Susan B. Anthony List.

Lila is a graduate of UCLA. When Lila was 15, she founded Live Action, which uses new media to educate and mobilize people from across the country to demand accountability from the abortion industry and human rights for the unborn. Since Live Action was founded, Lila has gone undercover to expose the illegal activity occurring within Planned Parenthood through the Mona Lisa Project. With many of her videos surfacing, several state investigations have occurred and Tennessee passed legislation to stop funding Planned Parenthood. Below is one of Lila’s videos from the Rosa Acuna project:

Jill Stanek, who runs, is one of our featured speakers and emcee at ProLifeCon. I’m excited to see and hear Jill speak again, as she is enthusiastic about pro-life causes. Jill is also a 2008 recipient of a Life Prizes award.

Jill served as a registered nurse in the Labor and Delivery Department at Christ Hospital in Illinois, and it was her commitment to her faith that led her to risk her job, reputation, and friendships to stop the practices of abortion. While as a nurse at Christ Hospital, Jill discovered that abortions were being committed at the hospital and babies were being aborted alive to die without medical care. After the hospital refused to stop the practice of abortion, Jill exposed the hospital’s practices and became a national figure to protect the unborn. Since then, Jill has testified before the Judiciary Constitution Subcommittee of the U.S. House of Representatives.

Is There a War Between Social and Economic Conservatives?

Below is video for panel held today at FRC headquarters with Ross Douthat, Lawrence Reed, and Bob Patterson:

Are social and economic conservatism at odds? According to political journalists Jonathan Martin and Ben Smith, … the battles over morality-based cultural issues such as gay rights, abortion and illegal drugs that did so much to drive the conservative movement and dominated the political conversation for more than 30 years have abated, giving way not just to broad economic anxiety but to a new set of emotionally charged issues. (Politico, August 20, 2010 )

Are they right? To answer that question, Family Research Council is hosting an important symposium on the relationship between economic and social conservatism featuring three of the nation’s leading observers of the political scene.

New York Times columnist Ross Douthat, formerly a senior editor at The Atlantic, has written extensively about religion, family, and public life. Douthat is the co-author, with Reihan Salam, of Grand New Party: How Republicans Can Win the Working Class and Save the American Dream (Doubleday, 2008).

Lawrence Reed is president of the Foundation for Economic Education and formerly led the Mackinac Center for Public Policy. Under his leadership, the Mackinac Center emerged as the largest and one of the most effective and prolific of over 40 state-based free market-oriented think tanks in the country.

Bob Patterson is a adjunct research fellow at the Howard Center for Family, Religion & Society of Rockford, Ill. and editor of The Family in America, which recently published his important article, “Fiscal Conservatism is Not Enough: What Social Conservatives Offer the Party of Lincoln.”
