Her name is Lila Rose, and she's well known on both sides of the abortion debate. Although she's only 22 years old, she's been a high-profile member of anti-abortion circles for at least seven years.
Surge Desk has the facts about the young woman who founded Live Action, the group that made the Planned Parenthood video.
1. She thinks abortions "should be performed in public"
Rose voiced this opinion at the 2009 Values Voter Summit, where she was an invited speaker.
2. She's arranged undercover operations at Planned Parenthood before
In 2007, Rose made secret videotapes of her visits to Planned Parenthood clinics in Los Angeles. Although she was 18 years old at the time, she told clinic workers she was 15 and had gotten pregnant after sleeping with a 23-year-old man. Under California law, clinic employees should have reported the situation as statutory rape, but they didn't.
Watch Rose describe her action on "The O'Reilly Factor."
3. She's worked with James O'Keefe, the man who ran an undercover hoax at ACORN
In the clip above, Rose mentions her "friend James O'Keefe." The two developed an interest in undercover video stings after learning about anti-abortion activist Mark Crutcher, who recorded fake telephone calls to Planned Parenthood in an attempt to gather intelligence about the organization. O'Keefe went on to conduct an undercover operation that allegedly caught Planned Parenthood clinics accepting donations earmarked for African-American abortions; later he posed as a pimp seeking advice from ACORN staff, and most recently he was arrested for tampering with office phones belonging to Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La.
4. She's won conservative awards and cash
In 2008, the Gerard Health Foundation, which promotes anti-abortion activities and abstinence-only sex education, awarded Rose $50,000 in its annual Life Prizes awards. Last year, Rose was named a Young Leader by the Susan B. Anthony List, an anti-abortion nonprofit.
5. She became an activist when she was a teenager
Rose founded Live Action when she was only 15 years old and continued her activism during her college years at UCLA, where she established a Live Action student chapter and founded a national anti-abortion magazine called The Advocate (not to be confused with the gay and lesbian news publication of the same name).
