BOISE, Idaho, March 10, 2023 /Christian Newswire/ — Yesterday, Planned Parenthood opened an abortion center in Ontario, Oregon, in response to Idaho banning virtually all abortions after Roe v. Wade was overturned.
Ontario is located on the border of Oregon and Idaho and is just a 45-minute drive from Stanton’s flagship, life-affirming medical clinic in Meridian, Idaho, where they share a parking lot with the largest Planned Parenthood facility in Idaho.
Stanton Healthcare is a women’s healthcare clinic which specializes in serving women with unexpected pregnancies by providing professional medical care, practical and emotional support, women’s wellness care, and a special outreach to refugee and marginalized communities. Stanton is based in Idaho with affiliates across the country and internationally.
Stanton Healthcare is deeply troubled that the Ontario Planned Parenthood is engaged in “abortion trafficking” as it attempts to move illegal abortions across state lines.
Linda Thomas, Director of Community Outreach for Stanton Healthcare, states:
“Planned Parenthood is aggressively continuing their profit-driven agenda of abortion as the solution for women facing unexpected pregnancies. They are actively sending Idaho women across state lines into the border town of Ontario, Oregon. But no woman wakes up in the morning and wants to have an abortion.
“Of the women we see at Stanton Healthcare who are considering an abortion, a full 90% report feeling pressured to do so by someone they trust. Abortion is not the option women choose when they have the support they want and deserve. That’s why we’re in Ontario with our mobile medical clinic.”
Brandi Swindell, CEO and Founder of Stanton Healthcare, comments:
“It is deeply troubling that Planned Parenthood is engaged in ‘trafficking’ abortion across state lines as well as supporting the violence of abortion against the women and children of Oregon.
“Stanton Healthcare could not remain silent or indifferent as we brought our 37-foot, state-of-the-art, mobile medical clinic right next door to Planned Parenthood to serve the women of Oregon and Idaho.
“Working with the pro-life and human rights communities in both states, Stanton Healthcare is committed to providing women with professional medical care, practical and emotional support, and wellness care.
“While Planned Parenthood treats women as a commodity for profit, Stanton Healthcare is dedicated to providing women with unexpected pregnancies hope and tangible support at no charge.”
