Planned Parenthood's affiliate in Boise, Idaho, has announced it is ending its primary healthcare services but will continue to perform abortions.
BOISE, Idaho -- Kara Cadwallader, vice president of medical affairs and senior medical director for Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest and the Hawaiian Islands, said basic healthcare services would be discontinued because of the lack of patients asking for these services, reported Boise State Public Radio.
Cadwallader said people had access to basic healthcare services elsewhere.
Here is the link to the news article reporting the story.
Brandi Swindell is Founder and CEO of Stanton Healthcare which is a life-affirming women's health clinic located right next to the Boise Planned Parenthood clinic.
Ms. Swindell states:
"By cutting primary health services but continuing to be an abortion vendor, Planned Parenthood has revealed what they truly are. That is, an abortion business which has become the largest abortion provider in the world.
"Planned Parenthood likes to portray themselves as critical providers of women's healthcare across the nation yet federally qualified community health centers -- which do not provide abortions -- offer more comprehensive health care services than those offered by Planned Parenthood. These health centers outnumber Planned Parenthood clinics 20 to 1.
"Planned Parenthood's own annual report shows most of its real healthcare services have been in decline over the past several years. Tragically during this time, their abortion business has increased. It is important to note, the services that Stanton provides to women in the Boise area have only increased during the same time period.
"Planned Parenthood cutting health services in Boise only underscores the reality that they need to be defunded and the $500,000,000 of public funds that they receive annually should be given to clinics that truly service and provide quality care to women."
