Washington, DC – June 7, 2018 – Lila Rose, Rep. Vicky Hartzler, Rep. Diane Black, Rep. Chris Smith, Rep. Mark Walker, Rep. Steve King to Hold Press Conference about Planned Parenthood’s Failure to Report Child Sexual Abuse
Washington, D.C. – Live Action Founder and President Lila Rose and Members of Congress will hold a press conference on Thursday to respond to a recent Live Action investigative report and docuseries. Values Action Team Chairwoman Vicky Hartzler (MO-04) and members of Congress Diane Black (TN-06), Chris Smith (NJ-04), Mark Walker (NC-06), and Steve King (IA-04) are confirmed to respond to a recent report that Planned Parenthood has failed on multiple occasions to report the suspected sexual abuse of minors. The report and videos show Planned Parenthood’s decade’s-long history of performing abortions on sexual abuse victims as young as 12, failing to report the abuse to authorities as is often mandated by law, and sending victims back to their abusers.

When: Thursday, June 7, 2018, 11:15-11:40 a.m. ET
