Dozens of pro-life activists staged a sit-in at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s D.C. office on Wednesday, January 22, 2020.
Several of the peaceful protestors were then arrested and taken away by the police.
The sit-in formed part of a broader campaign dubbed the “Purple Sash Revolution,” an initiative the Stanton Public Policy Center is pushing. The purple sashes participants were wearing manifested their solidarity with the women who fought for universal suffrage, who wore purple sashes as well.
The group wanted to raise awareness about Pelosi’s role in road-blocking legislation that would compel abortionists to take infants who survive abortions to hospitals, where they would receive the same kind of care as any other newborn. House Democrats have derailed the bill more than 80 times by preventing a vote on it.
LifeSiteNews was present providing live video coverage of the event. Pro-lifers congregated in the reception area of Pelosi’s office. However, the Speaker herself was not present that day because she was leading a congressional delegation to Israel.
Nevertheless, multiple pro-life activists used this gathering to voice their disapproval of Pelosi’s pro-abortion behavior.
“There are people alive today who survived abortions, and their lives have just as much dignity and value as any other human being,” one asserted, asking Pelosi to “see the value in those infants who are left aside in a bucket, to look at them with the dignity that she looks at America.”
“I just want Nancy Pelosi to understand that she needs to hear all of our voices and be very open-minded on how everyone feels, how these unborn children cannot even speak and we’re here to stand up for them,” another stated. “We just really need her to open up and listen to all of us.”
The group then moved on to the hallway. The crowd then started singing Amazing Grace and the Reverend Patrick Mahoney, director of the Christian Defense Coalition, led the group in prayer.
“We were inside Nancy Pelosi’s office, we left, a number of people knelt down in front of her office door, and then the capitol police asked us to leave,” LifeSiteNews’ Doug Mainwaring gave his recollection of what happened at this event. “So most of us were herded out to the far end of the hallway, although some remain in front of the Speaker’s office…they’ve been threatened to be arrested by police.”
Nine people ended up being arrested.
“It is unacceptable that we as a nation would ever think that it would be okay to pass legislation in states that would allow for a baby to be killed after a botched, late-term abortion,” Stanton founder and CEO Brandi Swindell told LifeSiteNews.
“These little babies are fighting to survive an attempt for their life to be taken out, and then we give abortionists another opportunity to kill that baby? It’s wrong. It is not who we are as a society. It is barbaric. And so all of us here today, we represent the millions of Americans that reject abortion or reject late-term abortion. And so today was a moment of strength, it was a moment of power, it was a moment of speaking truth to power,” she added.
The sit-in occurred on the 47th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade ruling.

Democrat Congressman Dismisses Low Black Unemployment under Trump
Even with Black unemployment at its lowest rate in nearly 50 years under the Trump administration’s watch, South Carolina Congressman James Clyburn dismissed these numbers.
Clyburn said these numbers are “not true” because Blacks “were fully employed during slavery.” So, “it all depends on how you measure” it, he asserted.
On Fox News’s Your World With Neil Cavuto, host Neil Cavuto chatted with Clyburn about the Trump economy. Clyburn asked whether the president’s policies are beneficial to Black Americans.
“Let’s leave the words aside,” stated Cavuto. “Whether you like his [Trump’s] style or not, or tweets or not, or comments or not, he’s delivered the goods for a lot of African-Americans has he not? With record-low unemployment levels for one group or another. Among Africa-Americans, you don’t think that’s something constructive?”
Clyburn, who voted to impeach Trump back in December, said, “Come on, Neil. No, no, it’s not true. I’m saying that the African-American unemployment is not the lowest it’s ever been unless you count slavery.”
“We were fully employed during slavery,” claimed Clyburn. “So it all depends on how you measure this up.”
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the national unemployment rate for African American workers, 16 years and older, was 5.4% in August 2019. Michael W. Chapman of CNS New said this was the lowest rate in recorded history.
The BLS data for African American begins in 1972, almost 50 years ago. According to a chart that Chapman posted, the unemployment rate numbers from July through December 2019 were in the 5’s range — 5.9, 5.4, 5.5, 5.5, 5.6 and 5.9. In January 2020, the rate was 6.0 percent.
Clearly Democrat elected officials are in denial about Trump’s economic success.
However, if the Trump administration wants to win black votes, it will need to push immigration restriction given how unskilled labor tends to displace black labor.
