Lila Rose has dedicated herself to ending abortion and building the culture of life. At age fifteen, Lila founded Live Action (liveaction.org), a nonprofit which specializes in investigative journalism, media and youth education. Live Action works to expose abuses in the abortion industry and advocate for human rights for the pre-born, using new media to educate and mobilize both local and national audiences. Live Action also hosts the leading social media presence for the pro-life movement, reaching over a million people a week, as well as the leading national pro-life student magazine, The Advocate, and one of the leading pro-life news sites, liveactionnews.org.
Lila has led numerous undercover investigations exposing corruption and illegal activity at Planned Parenthood, the nation’s biggest abortion chain, as well as dozens of other independent abortion clinics. Her work has documented rampant sexual abuse cover up, racism, medical misinformation, the willingness to assist sex traffickers, false statements made by Planned Parenthood executives, sex-selective abortion and infanticide.
As a freshman at UCLA, Lila founded the pro-life student magazine The Advocate. The Advocate is now the largest pro-life student publication in the country, distributed at over 300 high school and college campuses with a yearly circulation of 200,000.
