In a post-Roe America, the pro-life movement will need to ensure that high-quality, life-affirming medical care is available at affordable prices. We know that the abortion lobby uses fearmongering to say that pro-lifers want to take away healthcare, when in reality we oppose abortion, which is not healthcare. A group of pro-lifers have successfully opened a life-affirming, non-profit medical clinic across the street from an Idaho Planned Parenthood. The goal is to provide free healthcare and also show the community that they do not need Planned Parenthood.
Stanton Healthcare has bought a building across the street from an Idaho Planned Parenthood. On its website, Stanton describes itself as, “a life-affirming medical clinic in Idaho specializing in unexpected pregnancy care, we treat our clients with respect, dignity, and compassion in a confidential setting.”
Their clinics provide pregnancy tests, STD testing, maternity supplies, and referrals to OB/GYNs.
Stanton Healthcare doesn’t always buy buildings, but when they do, they are right across from Planned Parenthood. Stay prophetic my friends! #ProLife @AbbyJohnson @SBAList @mschlapp @March_for_Life @LiveAction @HeartbeatIntl pic.twitter.com/Ukhl0ovFL4

Students for Life groups in Idaho have also been helping with the effort to open a clinic. John Jourdan, the Regional Coordinator for Idaho wrote, “This week I joined the Treasure Valley Teens for Life and 250 plus others at the dedication of the new Stanton International clinic in Meridian, Idaho, right across from Planned Parenthood! We heard from speakers such as Fr. Frank Pavone from Priests for Life, and US Representative Fulcher.
It is so encouraging to see such amazing pro-life activists working to provide women with real options and supporting a culture of LIFE!”
A post-Roe America must provide the resources necessary for women and families to succeed. This includes affordable, life-affirming healthcare, like what Stanton Healthcare provides. You can read more about Stanton Healthcare here.
