“Abortion is the ultimate exploitation of women.”
— Alice Paul
Standing with the Suffragists
The Stanton Public Policy Center is a women’s advocacy and educational movement that works on issues of human rights and justice that empower and inspire women. It is affiliated with Stanton Healthcare which has life-affirming women’s health clinics in America and internationally.
Stanton Public Policy draws great inspiration from our founding sisters in the suffragist movement who heroically fought in the public square for equality and ensuring that all women would have the right to vote. Brave women like Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton were tireless advocates working and speaking out against the injustice of treating women like second class citizens.
Through their dedication, passion and commitment, on August 18, 1920, the 19th Amendment passed giving women the right to vote! 2020 marks the centennial of enshrining this fundamental right in our Constitution.
Today, America is facing another battle regarding a great social injustice and human rights violation: abortion violence and the tragic impact it has on our nation and women.
Just as our sisters would not be silent 100 years ago, so we will not be silent on the issue of abortion today!
We unite with our sister Susan B. Anthony as she stood against the violence of abortion and declared,
I deplore the horrible crime of child-murder… No matter what the motive.
What is the
purple sash revolution?
Following in the footsteps of these extraordinary women, Stanton Public Policy Center launched the #PurpleSashRevolution campaign in January, 2020 at the March for Life in Washington, DC.
Wearing purple sashes and proclaiming the powerful message of “Equal Rights for Preborn Women”, we challenged Speaker Nancy Pelosi to allow a vote in Congress on the Abortion Survivors Protection Act, legislation which she has blocked over 80 times.
The original suffragists wore sashes bearing the message “Votes for Women” in public to draw visible attention to the injustice of denying women the right to vote and to create a powerful image for their cause.
Join with Stanton in this important election year to stand for the rights of preborn children!
join The revolution
Stanton Public Policy Center will be delivering a petition to Lonnie G. Bunch III, Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, to remove the bust of racist Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger, from its undue place of honor in the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C.
Order a purple sash for yourself and your friends. Wear it everywhere and post on social media. The vivid color and powerful message of the purple sashes are a great conversation starter and public witness.
Join #PurpleSashRevolution at local, national and virtual events as we stand for human rights, justice and an end to abortion violence.
