UCLA student, anti-abortion activist Lila Rose inspires calls for donations to Planned Parenthood

Lila Rose, the UCLA student who poses as a pregnant teen with a 31-year-old boyfriend at Planned Parenthood clinics Plenty of reaction here and here to our story Sunday about Lila Rose, the UCLA student who poses as a pregnant teen with a 31-year-old boyfriend to show that Planned Parenthood does not always follow statutory rape reporting requirements. Rose, whose photo is at right, posts her videos on her website.

One we found particularly interesting was a take-off on something that happened during the presidential campaign, when people who support legalized abortion were urged to send donations to Planned Parenthood in the name of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, a staunch abortion foe.

On Monday, Daily Kos blogger mck suggested that people make donations to Planned Parenthood in the name of Lila Rose.

According to the New York Daily News, about $760,000 flowed to the coffers of Planned Parenthood in the name of the vice presidential nominee, who recently mused to a crowd in Indiana that for a fleeting moment, she contemplated having an abortion when she learned her fifth child, Trig, had Down Syndrome.
