Pregnancy Center Will Build New Clinic Next to Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz

By Micaiah Bilger

A new pregnancy center in Idaho plans to break ground this spring on a plot next door to a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic.

Stanton Healthcare founder Brandi Swindell said they hope to be operating their new facility in Meridian by early next year, according to Meridian Press. They plan to break ground in May, she said.

“It’s going to be set up and designed to offer holistic women’s health care, as well as our specific care to reach out to women facing unexpected pregnancies,” Swindell said.

Swindell said the new facility will offer free ultrasounds, pregnancy confirmation, uterine and ovarian diagnostics, STI testing and treatment, prenatal care and postnatal follow-ups and possibly mammograms.

The building will be 7,000 square feet and cost about $1.4 million to build, according to the report. It will have exam and counseling rooms, a laboratory, wellness room and boutique for infant and maternity clothing.

The group hopes the Meridian facility will be the flagship model and training center for its future facilities. Swindell said she began the healthcare group as a life-affirming replacement to Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood leaders in Meridian are not happy about the new Stanton facility being built next door. In December, the abortion chain filed a lawsuit against Stanton Healthcare, claiming its volunteers are harassing Planned Parenthood patients.

Stanton Healthcare plans to build next to Meridian Planned Parenthood

The organizations are involved in a lawsuit over a mobile services bus dispute

By Holly Beech

Stanton Healthcare and Planned Parenthood, which are facing off in a lawsuit, could be neighbors in Meridian by early next year.

Stanton aims to break ground on a new Meridian wellness center in May, pending city permit approval, said founder and CEO Brandi Swindell.

The 7,000-square-foot building would be at 2218 E. Franklin Road, next to Planned Parenthood. Stanton owned two parcels at the site and sold one to a church, Swindell said in December.

Stanton’s mission is to end abortion and provide free services to women facing unexpected pregnancies. The organization has opened pregnancy crisis centers next to Planned Parenthood’s other two Idaho clinics in Boise and Twin Falls.

“We have had issues with protesters, and we have had issues with harassment of staff,” regional Planned Parenthood spokeswoman Katie Rogers said. “And because of that, we have decided to challenge them legally.”

The regional Planned Parenthood sued Stanton Healthcare in November, claiming Stanton illegally operated its mobile services van in the shared Meridian parking lot and intimidated Planned Parenthood’s staff and patients.

Swindell has called the lawsuit’s claims false and slanderous.

Stanton Healthcare Thrown Out of 'Women's March on Washington'

WASHINGTON, Jan. 18, 2017 /Christian Newswire/ -- Stanton Healthcare which was initially accepted as a "Partner" for the WMW, has now been removed by march organizers.

Stanton provides quality healthcare free of charge to low income women, women with unexpected pregnancies and the refugee communities.

With other women's groups that embrace a pro-life message being removed from the WMW, it is now clear that this is not a "Women's" March at all but an anti-Trump and pro-choice march.

Brandi Swindell, Stanton Founder and President, states;

"As a single woman who started a women's healthcare clinic and a pro-life feminist, I think it is important that there is inclusion, diversity and a broad spectrum of opinions at the 'Women's March on Washington.

"That is why we thought it was so important to mobilize women who embrace ending the violence of abortion and standing for human rights and justice for all.

"If the voice of pro-life women is excluded from the WMW, then it is not really a 'Women's March' at all.  Rather, it is an anti-Trump march, a pro-choice march or a Planned Parenthood march.  To truly be called a 'Women's March,' all our sister's voices, thoughts, viewpoints and stories need to be heard. 

"Let's be clear on this point, the WMW has turned into a purely partisan political rally and march with no regard for hearing from or listening to all women's voices.  Shame on them for using the term 'women' to advance their political agenda."

    WASHINGTON, Jan. 17, 2017 /Christian Newswire/ -- Stanton Healthcare, a pro-life women's health clinic, received confirmation of their acceptance as a partner in the WMW today and is listed on the official March's website (see below).

    Stanton Healthcare provides quality healthcare to women with unexpected pregnancies, low income women and the refugee community all free of charge.

    In their application to be a partner at the WMW Stanton stated;

    "Stanton Healthcare can mobilize women to attend the march who will embrace human rights and social justice for all while standing against the violence of abortion.  They will also encourage women to participate in the march who will challenge the federal government to defund Planned Parenthood and give that $540,000,000 to federally licensed health clinics that provide more comprehensive women's health care services."

      Brandi Swindell, Founder and President of Stanton Healthcare, states;

      "As a single woman who started a women's healthcare clinic and a pro-life feminist, I think it is important that there is inclusion, diversity and a broad spectrum of opinions at the 'Women's March on Washington.'

      "That is why we thought it was so important to mobilize women who embrace ending the violence of abortion and standing for human rights and justice for all.

      "If the voice of pro-life women is excluded from the WMW, then it is not really a 'Women's March' at all.  Rather, it is an anti-Trump march, a pro-choice march or a Planned Parenthood march.  To truly be called a 'Women's March,' all our sister's voices, thoughts, viewpoints and stories need to be heard.  Hopefully, Stanton Healthcare will be allowed to stay."

        Pro-life women to infiltrate anti-Trump Women’s March on Washington

        By Bradford Richardson - The Washington Times - January 9, 2017

        Pro-life women will participate in the Women’s March on Washington later this month, sending the message that the anti-Trump and pro-choice narratives pushed by the event’s organizers do not speak for all women.

        Representatives from the Stanton Policy Center, And Then There Were None, Sound Legal Group and other pro-life groups are planning to attend the Jan. 21 march.

        “As a woman who has spent most of her life standing up against injustice in the world and promoting the dignity of women and the sanctity of every human life, I am thrilled to be a part of the Women’s March,” Brandi Swindell, founder of the Stanton Policy Center, said in a statement.

        Pro-Life Women to Participate in March for Women in Washington, D.C

        women-march-2017

        WASHINGTON, D.C. – Stanton Policy Center, Sound Legal Group, and other pro-life groups from across the nation will participate in the March for Women in Washington, D.C. on January 21st, 2017. 

        The groups will gather at the Supreme Court of the United States at 9am ET on January 21st, 2017 and walk to the March for Women rally together. Full details can be found here.

        Brandi Swindell, an organizer of the pro-life participation in the March for Women and founder of Stanton Healthcare and Stanton Policy Center, said: 
        “As a woman who has spent most of her life standing up against injustice in the world and promoting the dignity of women and the sanctity of every human life, I am thrilled to be a part of the Women’s March. We are entering into a critical time in our nation and women deserve to be a part of the discussions and to have their voices heard. I stand with women across America who want ACA overturned so women can be given the power to make decisions about their own healthcare and what services they pay for; who believe that women deserve better than Planned Parenthood and that the abortion-giant PP should be defunded - and that those funds should be reallocated to whole women’s healthcare centers; and that women deserve every opportunity and choice to succeed in this world and to make their lives better - none of which include abortion.” 

        Kate Bryan, an organizer of the pro-life participation in the March for Women and Stanton Policy Center's senior adviser: "The Women’s March on Washington has given women from across America a platform from which to make their voices heard in Washington, D.C. The March for Women’s inclusive approach has opened up the opportunity for every woman -- no matter her age, race, background, politics or faith -- to have her voice heard in the public square. Women throughout all of history have been the bedrock of our society and have always been a critical part of the fight against injustice. I stand with women across our great nation who stand against injustice and follow the original ideals of the feminist movement, seeking to promote the dignity and respect of every human being -- no matter their age, gestation, background, race, politics, faith, or any other factor. Every life is precious and deserves to be protected. And women deserve better than abortion.”

        Catherine Glenn Foster, Civil Rights Attorney and founder of Sound Legal Group said: "The Women's March on Washington claims to be about human rights, nonviolence, and confronting injustice. But by accepting Planned Parenthood, NARAL, and other abortion activism organizations as co-sponsors, the Women's March on Washington has betrayed its mission and failed to confront the injustice in front of its face. Human rights and nonviolence apply to everyone, regardless of age and disability, and are most powerful and most urgent when serving those who need it most. It's time for the Women's March to speak up for all women."

        The New Complaint Campaign of Planned Parenthood & Co.

        by Jay Hobbs - pregnancyhelpnews.com - January 6, 2017

        As she drove by A Preferred Women’s Health Center on her way into work Friday morning, Tonya Baker Nelson noticed what she sees too many mornings: a parking lot full of cars—every one of them representing a woman ending her child’s life through abortion at the Raleigh, N.C., clinic.

        Right next door to the clinic stands the house Baker Nelson’s pro-life pregnancy help organization purchased a year ago in hopes of offering each of those women one last chance to save her child’s life from abortion.

        A year into a protracted battle to rezone the residence into a life-saving outpost, Baker Nelson will need to clear one more hurdle after the abortion business filed a complaint with the city three days after Christmas in a last-ditch effort to stop the pro-life site from opening.

        It’s a story that sounds eerily similar to Brandi Swindell, the founder and CEO of Stanton Healthcare, whose relocation effort next to a Planned Parenthood mega-center in Meridian, Idaho prompted the abortion giant’s Great Northwest and the Hawaiian Islands regional affiliate to file a suit against the pro-life nonprofit in November.

        Planned Parenthood Sues Stanton Healthcare in Idaho

        MERIDIAN, Idaho, December 7, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – Planned Parenthood is suing Stanton Healthcare, a life-affirming women’s medical clinic, for parking its mobile unit on Stanton’s own property next to the abortion center. In an exclusive interview with LifeSiteNews, Stanton Founder and CEO Brandi Swindell explained how this reveals Planned Parenthood’s true agenda of restricting women’s choices and promoting abortion.

        “It’s one thing for us to watch Planned Parenthood participate in abortion,” said Swindell, a warm, energetic woman. “And then it’s one thing for it to go to the next level where they then force us to participate in it by taking our tax dollars to underwrite Planned Parenthood’s work. … That’s horrible.”

        This lawsuit means “it goes to a whole other level, when they are now trying to prevent us from doing good,” said Swindell. “It’s a very serious lawsuit...people of faith [and] people of goodwill need to wake up to and say, ‘does Planned Parenthood really think they have the authority to bully us and prevent us from doing good?’ It’s a despicable thing.”
