Why Live Action Wants the World To Know the Number 2,363


Wednesday, November 17, 2021

On October 18, the human rights advocacy organization Live Action released a campaign in an effort to raise awareness about and bring an end to abortion. The 2363 campaign sheds light on the 2,363 unborn lives that are taken each day by abortion in the United States and educate the public on what an abortion procedure entails. The multi-million dollar campaign also serves to educate others on the “humanity of pre-born children” and “connect women and families life-saving resources, and equip[s] new pro-life activists to end abortion in their communities.”

The 2363 campaign has its own website dedicated to it, which features a video asking a variety of Americans about their stance on abortion. After their answers, the interviewees watched a video featuring Dr. Anthony Levantio, a practicing Obstetrician-Gynecologist who previously performed over 1,200 abortions. 

Dr. Levantio’s video focuses on a second trimester surgical abortion referred to as Dilation and Evacuation. He walks the viewer through the abortion process and ends the clip with a statement: “In the early part of my career as an OBGYN, I performed over 1,200 abortions. One day, after completing one of those abortions, I looked at the remains of a pre-born child whose life I had ended, and all I could see was someone’s son or daughter.”

Dr. Levantio continues, saying,

“I came to realize that killing a baby at any stage of pregnancy for any reason is wrong. I want you to know today, no matter where you’re at or what you’ve done, you can change. Make a decision today to protect the preborn. Thank you for your time.”

After completing Dr. Levantio’s clip, those being interviewed were asked, “In one word, can you describe your thoughts on what you saw?” The answers from those featured in the campaign video included, “disturbing” and “barbaric.” Others expressed how it changed their opinion.

A Live Action press release detailed national survey results of people’s opinions on abortion and how they changed after watching the campaign video. Among these survey results, Live Action explains that “the number of people who categorized their position as ‘abortion should never be legal’ increased by 11%, from 33% to 44%.” Additionally, “the number of people who said abortion should be legal at any time or even after birth dropped from 13% to 6%.”  62% and 39% of those surveyed viewed abortion “more negatively” or “much more negatively” after watching the video, respectively.

Included in the press release was a statement from Live Action’s founder Lila Rose. When commenting on the new campaign, Rose stated, “2363 is a number every American must know. Together we can go from 2,363 children lost each day to 0. ” 

The non-profit began this campaign with their Unite for Life LA event at Santa Monica Pier in California. The event featured speakers and singers such as, “singer-songwriter Colton Dixon, former NFL player Andre Levrone Jr., speaker and survivor Lianna Rebolledo, Ohio Legislator Jena Powell, the Center for Medical Progress’ David Daleiden, former abortionist Dr. Kathi Aultman, [and] abortion pill reversal patient and advocate Rebekah Hagan.” There were over 2,000 audience members in attendance at the event. 

This campaign, along with other Live Action resources, exposes the truth of abortion, changing the hearts and minds of individuals on the issue.  Through the work of 2363, the nation continues to move closer to the day when that number reaches zero and all choose life.
