LOS ANGELES–Live Action, the youth-led pro-life group responsible for exposing statutory rape cover-up, racism, and medical misinformation at Planned Parenthood, is preparing to launch several major investigations of the abortion industry next year. A donor fund has awarded Live Action a $125,000 matching gift, and Live Action is now starting a fundraising campaign to match the gift and fund the new investigations.

Since 2007, Rose has led teams of young people undercover into dozens of Planned Parenthood clinics across the country, documenting rampant sexual abuse cover-up, violation of parental consent and notification laws, and medical misinformation at the nation’s largest chain of abortion clinics. Live Action’s investigations have reached a direct audience of tens of millions of Americans, and Live Action was recently featured in the nationally-broadcast CNN documentary, “Right on the Edge.”

In the last year, Live Action’s youth team has also educated hundreds of thousands of college and high school students through educational presentations, social media and the national student magazine, The Advocate.

“Our previous investigations have revealed shocking video evidence against commercialized abortion and prompted legislators and law enforcement to hold Planned Parenthood accountable,” says Rose. “With recent unprecedented pro-life gains in state and local government, now is a critical time for the pro-life movement to keep the pressure on the abortion industry.”
