Earlier this year, Lila Rose of Live Action conducted an undercover video probe at Memphis Planned Parenthood, during which she posed as a 14-year-old girl impregnated by an older man. A staff member advised her how to obtain the abortion without identifying the molester. Allen believes Rose's revelation had an effect on lawmakers.
"I think it gave it a tremendous boost," she contends. "It wasn't a surprise to us in the movement that this occurred, but in covering it, it really brought the public into an awareness of what goes on at Planned Parenthood."
