Live-Action is known for its undercover video sting operations on Planned Parenthood clinics. According to their about page, “Live Action News reports daily on stories the mainstream media often refuses to cover — including exposés of the abortion industry and stories revealing the dignity and humanity of preborn children — inspiring our readers to defend the most vulnerable within their communities.”

Funded by / Ownership

According to the Live Action website, “in 2008, Live Action was legally formed as a non-partisan, non-profit organization.” The website and organization are funded through donations.

Analysis / Bias

Live Action’s sole mission is to discredit Planned Parenthood and to advocate for Pro-Life policies. Typically, they try to achieve this through undercover sting videos. They also have a news section on their website that uses loaded emotional language such as this “Women in California may soon be protected from abortionists like these.” Generally, news articles are well sourced to credible information.

Critics of Live Action have accused them of selective video editing and publication of misleading information.
