Lila Rose the 24-year-old founder and CEO of LiveAction told liberal website Jezebel she would sacrifice her own life to stop abortion. “I’d die to protect another life. I’m all in for this cause,” she stated in an interview with Katie Baker.
Oozing condescension, Baker confessed herself a “little taken aback because this is the first fanatical statement I’ve heard from Rose since I hopped into her Hyundai an hour before,” and “I was prepared for extremism.”
“Fanatical.” “Extremism.” They’re the kind of words often applied to abortion opponents, and indeed, over the last year there’s been a drastic increase in violent attacks over the abortion issue.
The problem is that fanatical extremism is taking the form of violence against pro-lifers. Peaceful protestors exercising their First Amendment rights have been repeatedly physically attacked.
