Pregnant women now have a compassionate, pro-motherhood alternative to a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Boise, Idaho. Stanton Healthcare is a non-profit medical center founded by Christian activist Brandi Swindell, and it is now located right next door to the Planned Parenthood abortion center.
Although Planned Parenthood claims to offer choices to women, nearly 98% of Planned Parenthood’s pregnancy services are abortions, which garners them over one-third of their annual clinic revenue. Hannah Brass, legislative director with Planned Parenthood Votes Northwest, claims “there isn’t one option on the table that I think you could say we don’t provide.” However, the Stanton Healthcare clinic offers pregnant women entirely free services such as pregnancy care, adoption assistance, baby supplies, parenting classes. Considering only about 2% of Planned Parenthood’s pregnant patients continue their pregnancies, and they certainly do not provide free baby supplies nor parenting classes (so much for the “Parenthood” aspect of the organization), Brass’ statement is completely untrue. The only pregnancy option the Boise Planned Parenthood directly participates in is abortion.
It’s clear which clinic truly offers real solutions to women facing unexpected pregnancies without monetary motivations, and which one preys off their vulnerability with dollar signs in their eyes.
