Live Action News reports daily on important, under-reported stories, including stories that expose the abortion industry and the facts about abortion procedures, abortion's harm to women and society, and uplifting stories sharing the dignity and humanity of all children.
Live Action researches and produces in-depth reports on the abortion industry and presents them to the media and public officials; educates media and public officials on the need for changes in public policy; provides supporters with activism opportunities to contact their elected representatives with their concerns; and partners with other organizations to host special events and presentations.
