Who We Are

Our Beginning

Live Action was started in 2003, by one 15-year-old girl, Lila Rose, in her family’s living room – with the goal to expose what abortion does to the preborn child.  Lila worked with friends to make pro-life presentations to groups and shine a light on the reality of abortion.  Lila started undercover investigations in 2006, while at UCLA.  She was 18 at the time.

In 2008, Live Action was legally formed as a non-partisan, non-profit organization. Later that year, with a few of her friends, Lila created and produced the first nationally televised undercover investigation of the abortion industry.

Live Action exists today to shift public opinion on the killing of preborn children and defend the rights of these most vulnerable among us. Through compelling educational media, human interest storytelling, and investigative reporting, we reveal the humanity of the preborn and expose the abortion industry’s exploitation of women for profit.

With the largest and most engaged online following in the pro-life movement, Live Action is leading the transformation to end this grave human rights abuse.


What We Are Up Against

Many Americans do not realize how developed preborn children are when they are aborted


The abortion industry dehumanizes preborn children and cloaks the horror of abortion with code words and euphemisms like “clumps of cells,” “products of conception,” and “reproductive choice.”


Because of this deliberate misinformation, many Americans do not realize how developed preborn children are when they are aborted, they are kept in the dark about the risks abortion poses to women, and they have no idea what happens to a preborn child during an abortion.


Over the past several decades, the abortion industry and lobby have lured the media, politicians, and other powerful institutions into complicity, making this grave human rights abuse increasingly systemic.


Why We Are Winning

We expose the violence abortion does to both mother and child and demonstrate that the preborn child is an undeniably distinct and precious human life from the point of conception.

Hearts and minds change daily about abortion through investigative reporting on the abortion industry, compelling and viral social media content, national media campaigns, and programs that activate individuals on behalf of the most defenseless within their communities.
