Lila Rose Biography

Title:
President and Founder of Live Action
Position:
Con to the question "Should birth control pills be available over the counter?"
Reasoning:

“Even the World Health Organization has called birth control, hormonal birth control a Group 1 carcinogen because of all of the health risks, including cancer and heart disease and the other physical risks of hormonal birth control. So, we’re pumping our little girls with hormonal birth control and now they’re making it available over the counter it’s even more accessible to these young girls. What these young girls need and what they deserve and what our young men need and they deserve is real formative teaching about sexual ethics, sexual restraint and respect, so that they can avoid STDs and heartbreak and physical problems and that they can really achieve their full potential. That’s what our young people need. Not dangerous and powerful hormonal drugs.”
