    The Purple Sash Revolution

    In 2020, our nation marked the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, finally guaranteeing women the right to vote.  In honor of the suffragists’ fight for equality, Stanton Public Policy Center launched Purple Sash Revolution, an initiative dedicated to the ideal of equal rights for the preborn. Like the brave suffragists who stood for women’s rights, it’s our turn to boldly stand for equality and justice in the public square! Anyone can be an effective advocate for the most basic human right - the right to life. Join the Purple Sash Revolution today!

    End Chemical Abortions

    While we continue to see a decline in surgical abortions across America, we are witnessing a dramatic increase in chemical abortions. 

    Chemical abortions account for 54% of all abortions – up from 39% in 2017 – according to the Guttmacher Institute. 

    In light of these alarming statistics, we are launching a National Campaign: 

    #BanChemicalAbortions and #ProLifeProGreen

    Our goal is to end chemical abortions through public engagement, education, public policy, and legislation. We must stand against this barbaric practice that destroys human life and harms women as well as our environment.

    Ways We're Working to End Chemical Abortions

    Ensure all states with trigger laws in place to ban abortions when Roe V. Wade is overturned will treat chemical abortions in the same way as surgical abortions.

    Draft model legislation for states to ban chemical abortions. 

    Organize public rallies and demonstrations across the country calling for a ban of chemical abortions.

    Work with legislators on environmental laws to prevent children who have been killed through chemical abortions from being flushed into local sewage and drainage systems.

    Provide educational materials for pro-life organizations and churches regarding the harmful effects of chemical abortions.

    Work with federal, state and local pro-life politicians on detailed public statements regarding banning chemical abortions.

    #NotFakeToMe

    Since May 2, the pro-life movement in America has been under attack. Life-affirming clinics and Pregnancy Resource Centers, that help women with unexpected pregnancies, have been firebombed, vandalized and threatened with many having to spend thousands of dollars in security costs.

    Yet, with all this violence directed against pro-life centers, NOT ONE arrest has been made by the FBI and other federal law enforcement agencies against those who are initiating these attacks. As of today, President Biden, Nancy Pelosi and Majority Leader Schumer have failed to personally condemn this violence which is allowing a target to be placed on the back of the entire pro-life community.

    These attacks are not just “physical” in nature. Pro-choice legislators and leaders are adding to this atmosphere of violence by waging a propaganda campaign and calling life-affirming clinics and pregnancy resource centers, “Fake Clinics,” and attempting to shut us down.

    How We Are Responding

    In response to these attacks against our clinics, Stanton Public Policy Center/Purple Sash Revolution is launching a nationwide campaign called  #NotFakeToMe during the January 18-22  March For Life week in Washington, D.C.

    Purple Sash Revolution will be reminding our political leaders that our clients did not receive “fake” medical care, or “fake” baby formula doing the nationwide shortage. Nor did they receive “fake” baby supplies, financial support, counseling and so much more.  We shouldn’t be attacking clinics like Stanton or proposing anti-women legislation. Rather, we should be standing with them. We invite you to support Purple Sash Revolution by using #NotFakeToMe to share your story and share your support.

    Our focus will be to call for the House Judiciary Committee to hold public hearings on why our life-affirming centers are being attacked with impunity with no response from the Department of Justice. Next, we will be meeting will pro-life legislators asking them to protect our clinics from radical anti-woman pro-abortion politicians who are trying to close our healthcare facilities

    Finally, we will be bringing women and their children to Washington, D.C. who have received quality medical care and have been supported by our centers when they faced an unexpected pregnancy. These incredible women will be sharing their personal stories with members of Congress, like Senator Warren and Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez and inviting them to tour our Stanton Healthcare clinic.

    Watch Sen. Marshall Question Brandi Swindell

    After the overturn of Roe v. Wade, our Founder and CEO Brandi Swindell testified on Capitol Hill about the life-affirming work of pregnancy medical clinics across the country. Stanton is part of a movement which has over 3,000 pregnancy resource centers and medical clinics across the nation that outnumber abortion clinics by four to one.

    During the U.S. Senate hearing, Brandi shared the story of Stanton’s success in providing alternatives to abortion and compassionate care to women. Her testimony can be read here.
