Live Action founder is keynote speaker at annual Celebrate Life dinner on Sept. 28

UCLA student and pro-life activist Lila Rose is the keynote speaker for the 28th annual “Celebrate Life” awards dinner on Sept. 28 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis.

At age 15, Rose founded Live Action, a student-led, not-for-profit organization using “new media” to educate and mobilize local and national audiences to demand human rights for the unborn and accountability from the abortion industry.

Marc Tuttle, the president of Right to Life of Indianapolis, and other event organizers hope the 20-year-old keynote speaker will inspire pro-life supporters of all ages to work harder to end the culture of death in contemporary society.

Rose first attracted national media attention after she successfully launched several undercover investigations exposing racism and statutory rape cover-ups at Planned Parenthood affiliates.

Last summer, Live Action released video footage of employees at the Planned Parenthood abortion centers in Indianapolis and Bloomington defying Indiana’s parental notification law.

The pro-life fundraiser also will honor John and Chris Curran of Carmel, Ind., and Vince and Robyn Caponi of Indianapolis for their distinguished service to the cause of life.

The event begins with a reception at 6 p.m. then dinner and the awards at 7 p.m. Rose will speak at 8 p.m.

(“Celebrate Life” dinner reservations are $60 per person. For registration information, log on to or call the Right to Life of Indianapolis office at 317-582-1526.)
