WASHINGTON, Jan. 21, 2020 /Christian Newswire
/ -- A women's advocacy and human rights group will lead sit-in and protest at Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office calling for an end to infanticide in America. The sit-in will take place on January 22, at 11:00 AM, which is the 47th memorial of the landmark Roe v. Wade
Supreme Court decision that "legalized" abortion.
The location is the Longworth House Office Building at 15 Independence Avenue SE, Washington, DC 20515.
The group will first hold a news conference on the public sidewalk and then march to Speaker Pelosi's office which is 1236 Longworth.
The event is called #PurpleSashRevolution and is sponsored by Stanton Public Policy Center which 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.
Participants will be wearing purple sashes to stand in solidarity with the early suffragists who wore purple sashes demanding women have the right to vote as well as standing for human rights, justice and equality.
Since Roe v. Wade, thousands of children have been born alive from late-term abortions and left to die. #PurpleSashRevolution is demanding Speaker Pelosi allow a vote on the "Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act" which will give federal protection to children born alive from late-term abortions. Speaker Pelosi is refusing to allow a vote in the House of Representatives.
Brandi Swindell, Founder and CEO of Stanton Public Policy states,
"We are going to Speaker Pelosi's office to call for an end to infanticide and demand she allow a vote on protecting children born alive from late-term abortions. It is unconscionable that Speaker Pelosi is refusing to allow a vote on this critical human rights issue.
"Participants are wearing purple sashes to stand in solidarity with our founding sisters who heroically worked to empower and inspire women by securing the right to vote and strongly embracing human rights and equality. Suffragists like Elizabeth Cady Stanton stood against abortion and rejected the notion that abortion violence is a way to advance women's rights.
"#PurpleSashRevolution is following in the footsteps of Susan B. Anthony who called women to 'Organize. Agitate. Educate.'
"As the #PurpleSashRevolution protest is taking place at Speaker Pelosi's office, it will mark a powerful kickoff to the 2020 national election in which infanticide and abortion violence will take center stage in the race for the White House.
"In the history of America we have never seen such a sharp divide on the issue of abortion between Presidential and Congressional candidates. With the vast majority of Americas opposing late-term abortions and infanticide, it promises to be a significant year for pro-life victories."
