In high school most young people begin their first job, not their first business. But at age 15, that’s exactly what Lila Grace Rose did, launching Live Action, a “youth-led, pro-life movement for human rights.”
Rose, 23, who graduated from UCLA in 2010 with a degree in history, is currently President of Live Action as well as a pro-life speaker and writer. Her high-profile fight to protect the unborn has gained Live Action nationwide attention for its undercover footage of abortion provider Planned Parenthood’s questionable behavior.
Live Action recently released video of a pro-life activist in Arizona who uncovered that a Planned Parenthood clinic was willing to perform sex-selective abortions, which is a clear violation of Arizona law.
During a time when the national dialogue seems to be set on the economy, Rose said she sees “the protection of the human person and the dignity of life” as the biggest issues facing young people.
“We do not defend the most defenseless; it is not just a domestic issue, “ she said. “It is the main issue globally.”
Despite being a hero to young conservatives, Rose said she didn’t consider herself a conservative activist, as much as a pro-life activist.
“I am a pro-life activist, it is mostly conservatives, but it [abortion] is a bi-partisan issue.”
