There has been a lot of talk lately about Planned Parenthood’s corruption. A recent video showed a Planned Parenthood employee instructing two pro-life activists disguised as a hooker/pimp duo on how to get an abortion for underage prostitutes. The activist were trained by Lila Rose’s group, and Glenn interviewed the young leader on radio today.
“There is something really fascinating going on at Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood was started by Margaret Sanger. Margaret Sanger is one of the most racist people I think in the last hundred years. I mean, if you think George Wallace was bad, stand in line or sit in line behind Margaret Sanger. She was part of the eugenics crowd. She openly, openly wanted birth control because it would rout out the undesirables. Her words. That, you know, the infirm, the people that just shouldn't be around because they're hurting society and especially, her words, the Negro. That's what birth control was all about. It was the most racist stuff you've ever seen in your life. It was so bad that she left the United States and she went over to Europe and that's where it went really awry. Because that's where she learned the propaganda from the Germans on how to make it about compassion, how to make it about, this is compassion, this is to help people out, this is to help struggling mothers who have this horrible choice.”
“She didn't change her point of view. She changed her language. She changed the spin. She watched Edward Bernays, and it became about women. Not about undesirables. Those are the roots of Planned Parenthood. And I'm sorry, but a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. Planned Parenthood now is being exposed on these videos, and they are pretty amazing. They are being exposed on Planned Parenthood of saying to, you know, a so‑called pimp, you know what, here's the deal. I have all these underage girls that are prostitutes for me and I need to get them abortions; how do we do it? And they show them how to do it. That's illegal.”
“About a year, year and a half ago, I gave a speech for a pro life group in New Jersey and I had heard of this woman but I had never met her before. And I certainly never heard her speak. And I leaned over to the person sitting next to me and I said, ‘I don't think I've ever seen such courage in my life.’”
Lila Rose was the young woman giving the speech.
“They have her picture posted like a criminal in every single chapter of Planned Parenthood. Watch for this woman. She was in college and she started to speak out and she decided, I'm not going to sit down. This woman is a hero, a real American hero. She is the woman who trained the people to go in because she can no longer do it because they're looking for her. And she trained people how to do it and how to expose it.”

ROSE: Hi, Glenn.
GLENN: How are you?
ROSE: I'm great. How are you doing?
GLENN: I'm very good. Tell me, let's start here. Where, where were you going to college? If I remember right, it was out in California.
ROSE: Yes, UCLA. Go, Bruins.
GLENN: So you're at UCLA, and what made you say, "I'm not going to change my opinion. I'm just going to ‑‑ here I go"?
ROSE: Well, I've been pro life since I was a young girl and I started off with proactive Live Action in high school to do educational and media, educational media for other young people in San José which was my hometown. And when I got to UCLA I wanted to go there in part to try to reach out to my fellow students and educate them and spread awareness about abortion and about the other related abuses, about the abortion industry and lobby. I got the greatest human rights abuse is killing of the unborn child, and all the other abuses that can accompany it. So it was kind of the natural course from my ‑‑ from when I was a young teen, take activism and take educational work to UCLA.
GLENN: Now, when you say activism, because you are on the anti‑abortion side, of course the media will immediately jump to the conclusions that you endorsed people that would shoot people. They don't mind, you know, the communist revolutionaries and everything else, but you of course will be a problem because live action has to be violent?
ROSE: Well, I think that accusation is sick and it's absurd if anyone would say it. And on our website we're very clear what our mission is, which is to expose threats posed against the defenseless and those that are ‑‑ that group that are weak in our country and the weakest person in our nation today is the unborn child, and a close second is a victim of sexual abuse who might suffer a coerced abortion or be dragged to a clinic to get secret services and put back into a cycle of abuse. So that's what our mission is and, of course, we're ‑‑ we stand by it and we're going to continue to do that regardless of what any detractors or enemies, people who dislike, for some reason dislike the truth getting out there, that's what we'll stick to.
GLENN: So explore just a bit with me because I'll ‑‑ let me play devil's advocate here, literally devil's advocate. Let me say this: Pimp comes in, wants his underage girls who are prostituting for him. He has these girls under his thumb and they come in and if the pimp can trust them, at least someone at Planned Parenthood could say, when they get there, "Please, you know, can we help you in any way? How can we help you?" Where the if the pimp can't trust the people at Planned Parenthood, those girls are pushed down a flight of stairs, they have back alley abortions, they're beaten up, whatever has to happen and they don't get any medical help. How do you answer that charge, that argument?
ROSE: First of all, I would challenge anyone listening and anyone who would still support this activity to read some of the testimonies of traffic victims in our country, of children who are prostituted and you describe things that happen to them. If they did it, go to a Planned Parenthood or whatever it might be. And the reality, the harsh and brutal reality is those children are being serially raped, these children are being enslaved, these children are sometimes locked away and in dog kennels. There's a story at ABC News about a girl that was locked in a dog kennel and then she would be serially raped by people all around the city. I mean, these stories are atrocious. So the idea that their pimps could be coming into Planned Parenthood clinics, walking in casually, doing business as usual with the staff even though he's self‑proclaiming that he's had these sex slaves, picking up a bag of condoms, walking back to the jail ‑‑ to the place where he's keeping his slave captive and having them serially raped and that Planned Parenthood can get away with that, that that's okay with people? I don't think anyone would say that's okay. The reality here is Planned Parenthood is a mandated reporter for sexual abuse. It's their obligation legally, Glenn. If somebody walks in and if they in any way suspect child abuse, they have to make an immediate report. And that's because our legal system is structured to protect children from sexual abuse. Not to patch it up with secret abortions and condoms which ultimately facilitate more abuse but to rescue these children by making an immediate report to people that can help them.
GLENN: Who is ‑‑ who's covering this? Who is ‑‑ what news divisions are all over this?
ROSE: Well, it's been a slow start, I'll tell you that, because we've been doing this investigative work now for almost four years, showing sexual abuse coverups that's institutional at Planned Parenthood, the biggest abortion chain in our country. But this past week more and more news has been covering it. We remarkably had CBS, CBS for the first time covering the story on nightly news last night. So something's happening I think in public perception and even people in the media, places like CBS can't ignore this incredibly credible rolling body of evidence that we've been collecting that show beyond a shadow of a doubt, Glenn, that this is an institutional problem. This is systematic in Planned Parenthood. This is endemic. This is an organization that from the top down is supporting sexual abuse coverup and is doing it every day in their clinics.
GLENN: I tell you what I'm going to do. Lila, I would like to have my producers reach out to you and see your evidence, and where are you now? Are you in California?
ROSE: Right now I'm in D.C. I do live in Los Angeles.
GLENN: Okay. Are you available tomorrow? In New York?
ROSE: I would love to be. I would love to if I can. I know we're doing a press conference tomorrow which is, we're going to do it on the Hill with members of congress calling for congressional action, immediate congressional action.
GLENN: Here's the thing. If you can make it to New York at 5:00. But if you can't, that's fine. But I would like the ‑‑ we're going to reach out. We want to get this video, as much of it as we can from the four years of work, and I'm going to dedicate an hour tomorrow on Planned Parenthood and the abuse there and this nonsense that we now, the argument on the Hill that we're not funding abortions. And I'll do the history of Planned Parenthood as well. I know I've given them over 24 hours to prepare now, but ‑‑
ROSE: I'm so glad, Glenn, because people need to know it. I will do my best to be in New York with you tomorrow.
GLENN: Lila, best of luck to you. If we see you tomorrow, great. I mean, you just do what's right. But we ‑‑ believe me we can cover it here, but it needs to be seen.
GLENN: Because there is a ‑‑ there is a growing evil in the world and there is a growing number of people that are willing to turn their head and look the other way. And that's got to stop. That's got to stop. Lila, thanks.
ROSE: Thanks, Glenn.
