Lila Rose, a prominent pro-life activist and founder of Live Action, is no stranger to pressure, danger, or even disguise. Since starting Live Action in her living room in 2003, Lila has risked everything from her wealth to her physical freedom to protect the rights of unborn children.
After starting Live Action at only fifteen years old, Lila felt called to do more to expose the Human Rights atrocities she (and many others) suspected were occuring every single day inside abortion facilities.
During her first undercover sting operation in 2006, an eighteen-year-old Rose went undercover as “Brianna,” a pregant thirteen-year-old girl seeking to cloak her abusive relationship from authorities with an abortion. When presented with “Brianna,” Planned Parenthood employees informed her that she must lie on her papers and claim that she was sixteen to sidestep dealing with her parents or the authorities.
Considering these initial discoveries, Rose must have been unsurprised when, as she continued her undercover investigations, more and more cases of abuse and malpractice came to light. In February 2011, Live Action sent two more undercover actors to pose as sex traffickers seeking closeted abortions from Planned Parenthood. Without missing a beat, a Planned Parenthood employee directed the supposed-pimps to lie on their medical papers, and even went so far as to suggest other ways in which the bodies of young girls could be sold while they were still recovering from an abortion procedure.
In 2012, Rose organized yet another undercover operation. Women were repeatedly advised by Planned Parenthood employees to seek a sex-selective abortion. Quite literally, they encouraged women to abort their daughters because they claimed to want sons instead. Ironically, Planned Parenthood is the leftist standard-bearer for feminism and the rights of women.
The next year, Rose was at it yet again, and her findings were perhaps the worst yet. In 2013, Live Action published a series of videos entitled Inhuman: Undercover in America’s Late-Term Abortion Industry. These undercover videos detailed exactly what abortionists inflict upon a child during late-term abortions, as well as how frequenlty medical professionals abandon them to die in agony, should they happen to survive the procedure. To this day, these videos continue to change minds on late-term abortion in a matter of seconds.
Year after year, and gross discovery after gross discovery, Rose has continued to risk everything in order to bring the regular illicit practices of the abortion industry into the light of day. The mainstream media, however, have been quite diligent in ignoring the blast of Lila’s horn. I myself had rarely heard mention of Live Action or its founder in the national news headlines until a very recent scandal involving corporate Pinterest.
Following the scandal which blocked Live Action by listing it as “pornography,” Rose’s work has been propelled into the national spotlight that it truly deserves.
Rose has recently launched her new podcast in which she discusses abortion, sex, true feminism, and every other “untouchable” topic. Lila Rose is a force to be reckoned with and no one can silence her.
So, why should leftists fear the rise of Lila Rose?
Because she has proven that she is both a ruthless adversary of the abortion industry as well as a warm and charismatic leader of young women accross the country.
Rose’s very demeanor—her sleek look, polished personality, and obvious passion and belief in the work Live Action does—all shows her to be someone young women can look up to and trust.
As Rose picks up speed, more and more young women are leaving the anti-life and anti-feminine leftist agenda to side with the true femininity of Rose instead. They, like me, are captivated by this new model of modern feminism who is so very different than the Miley Cyruses of today.
Lila Rose is the dark horse to which leftist feminists can’t respond. In contrast, she makes modern-day feminists look cheap and illegitimate. She exposes their lies for the world to see.
