|Written by Lila Rose - Activist|
Lila Rose is a pro-life, student activist at UCLA who has dedicated her life to ending abortion. At fifteen years old, Lila founded Live Action, which is now a growing nonprofit with several chapters in California.
Live Action uses "new media" at both the community and national level to educate and mobilize youth, and to spread a pro-life message to the next generation. Live Action San Jose, for example, has reached thousands of local youth in schools and churches with the multi-media presentaiton, "The Truth About Abortion" and sponsors many youth oriented events. Live Action also conducts student-led investigations and releases the findings through Live Action Films, The Advocate (Live Action's quarterly student magazine), and other independent media.
Lila has launched several successful undercover investigations exposing racism and sexual abuse cover-ups by Planned Parenthood. Her brave work has revealed new evidence to build a strong case against the abortion industry and lobby.
During her freshman year at UCLA, Lila founded the student magazine The Advocate, for which she serves as Editor-in-Chief. The Advocate approaches right-to-life issues from unconventional angles and publishes the results of Live Action Films' evocative student investigations and educational pieces. The most recent issue was the first to expand its reach beyond UCLA, with students disseminating copies on over a dozen college campuses across the nation.
Lila is a frequent guest on radio and television programs, including The O'Reilly Factor, Hannity's America, and The Laura Ingraham show. Numerous newspapers and blogs have also printed articles about her investigations, including the Wall Street Journal, Salon Magazine Online, The Washington Times and National Review. Her efforts have bought attention to human rights issues well beyond the students on the UCLA campus.
