Our Founding Inspiration
Founders: Paul & Katy Harmon
In 1999, Paul Harmon, an engineer from Oregon, proposed that a new method of outreach was needed to capture the hearts and minds of Generation X, the first generation to spend more time on the internet than watching TV. He proposed to reach into the minds of abortion minded young women, we needed to reach them in the media they were using. This began the wheels turning as the site was developed and a marketing strategy was put into place.
The StandUpGirl Foundation as a 501(c)3 charitable organization dedicated to providing pregnant adolescent and young adult women with alternatives to abortion. The mission is to change hearts and save lives by educating young women on the development of the unborn child and alternatives to abortion.
