Late Thursday morning at the Planned Parenthood abortion facility located at 1691 The Alameda in San Jose, California, Rose led a group of pro-life advocates.
Rose tells LifeNews.com she was visiting the abortion center with a group of about 20 students and three adults to pray and provide information to women who might be open to abortion alternatives.
According to a police report filed at the scene and numerous witnesses, a uniformed Planned Parenthood escort engaged in a short exchange with Rose and eventually struck her on the hand, knocking her literature to the ground.
"Sir, are you familiar with the abortion procedure?" Rose asked the Planned Parenthood escort while standing on the public sidewalk.
The escort approached Rose from the Planned Parenthood parking lot and said, "You idiot. You've caused so much trouble. You piece of crap."
Rose told LifeNews.com today: "The man appeared to recognize me though I had never met him. He knew who I was and I think that is part of the reason for his surprising anger and the attack."
Rose offered to show the escort a picture of a baby victimized by abortion, saying, "Can I show you a picture of what it really does to a baby?"
At this point, the escort struck Rose's hand knocking her pro-life pamphlets and Bible to the ground and Rose stepped further back on the public sidewalk.
The Planned Parenthood official moved closer to Rose and, visibly shaking, says, "It's a woman's choice!"
"What about the baby's choice?" Rose responds.
The Planned Parenthood escort replied, "It's not a baby!" and then turned around and walked away.
Rose, the president of Live Action, tells LifeNews.com that the police were called and interviewed her and several witnesses on the scene.
She says she was not injured by the attack but will press for charges of assault and battery.
