Happy Wednesday, ladies and gents! We hope every one of our readers has settled back into the swing of things and is excited about the new school year. We know first hand it can be difficult to balance class, homework, AND politics, which is why this week were so pleased to feature anti-abortion activist, Lila Rose, as our Weekly Conservative Woman.

Lila is a 27 year old anti-abortion activist, and the founder of Live Action. If you aren’t familiar with Live Action, allow me to give you the low down: they’re a youth-led pro-life movement advocating for the dignity and life of human beings. Lila founded this movement when she was only 15 years old, and today, it is growing more than ever before!

Lila’s activism has included giving presentations to schools and youth groups and investigations of Planned Parenthood and their affiliates. Her activism focuses on issues such as the financial aspect of the abortion industry and the moral and ethical implications of abortion itself.  Her “Racism Project,” highlighting the high abortion rate in the African-American community, received support from Alveda King, niece of MLK, Jr.  In July 2013, National Journal included Lila in their list of “The 25 Most Influential Washington Women Under 35.”  Lila has also received other awesome honors and awards for her work, and here at FFL, we believe she serves as a wonderful role model! If she can found a life changing organization at just 15 years old, surely the rest of us can finish up our homework and at LEAST get involved or informed on campus!
