BOISE, Idaho, Sept. 12, 2018 -- Stanton Healthcare says Leann Wen will continue Planned Parenthood's failed and tragic policies regarding women's health.

Stanton Healthcare provides professional, compassionate, quality healthcare to women, especially those struggling with unexpected pregnancies. Stanton's goal is to provide the highest standard of care to women as they work toward replacing Planned Parenthood with clinics that are focused on true women's health care and not abortion.

Brandi Swindell, Founder and CEO of Stanton Healthcare states;

"Every woman in America should be troubled by the appointment of Leann Wen as the new President of Planned Parenthood, the world's largest abortion provider. Every day our clinics see women who have been exploited and treated like a commodity by Planned Parenthood.

"Women deserve better than Planned Parenthood and will receive better health care at clinics not associated with the abortion industry. Regardless of the intentions of Dr. Wen, she cannot save an organization that betrays women, cuts critical healthcare services, and misleads the public on the services they provide.
 
"If Dr. Wen truly cared about the health of America's women, the last organization she would lead would be Planned Parenthood."

Danielle Versluys, COO of Stanton Healthcare comments;

"Planned Parenthood claims to be an expert on women's health while their preventative services have dropped tremendously nationwide. For example, from 2006 to 2016, breast exams have dropped at Planned Parenthood by 62%. Cancer screenings have dropped by 67%, and pap tests are down 74%. While taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood grew by 61%, the number of actual patients served dropped by 23%.

"Sadly during this time, abortions at Planned Parenthood have increased by 11%.

"Instead of throwing taxpayer funds down the money pit of an unethical organization, public resources should be directed to federally licensed community clinics and other reputable healthcare providers."
