I have been in the pro-life movement for over 35 years and I would like to share with you one of the most exciting projects I have ever been involved with. It is the ministry of Stanton Healthcare. Stanton is a life-affirming medical clinic in Boise, Idaho located right door to Planned Parenthood. Sadly, Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in the world and 91% of all abortions in Idaho take place in the county where Stanton is located.
Stanton is much more than a physical building however. This ministry represents the heart and love of Christ as we reach out to women who are experiencing unexpected and crisis pregnancies. As Stanton Healthcare Founder and President, Brandi Swindell, often says, "It is not enough to say we are pro-life. We must live out our pro-life beliefs in a loving and tangible way." In other words, being pro-life means we offer positive and compassionate solutions to hurting women. We also want to stress, unlike Planned Parenthood all our services and help to women are free!
Stanton is a powerful, public witness to Idaho and the nation that the faith community doesn't speak out on the issue of abortion with judgment and condemnation. Rather, we embrace a hurting and broken world with God's grace and mercy. The women of Idaho will now be offered "real choices" when it comes to unexpected pregnancies. The work of Stanton Healthcare is so powerful and moving that Pat Robertson and the 700 Club recently send out a news crew out to Boise from Washington, D.C. to do a national feature story on the clinic.
We believe God is raising up Stanton Healthcare to be a national model that will one day replace Planned Parenthood!
Stand with us:
When we moved into the clinic last year, we felt God wanted us to own the building "debt free." God was faithful and something miraculous happened. A major Foundation told us if we raised $170,000 toward the purchase of the clinic by August 2 they would give us an $80,000 matching grant. That is an $80,000 gift! We are now only $8,000 away. So we are asking you, to help Stanton realize this miracle. Between now and August 2, we are asking you to send the largest gift possible to help us raise the final $8,000.
I am praying that I can help raise $3,000!
For some, all that you may able to give is $10, $25 or $50. Others may be in a position to give $100, $500, $1,000 or even more toward this incredible life saving ministry. As we often say at Stanton, no gift is too small or too large.
Stanton Healthcare gives us the unique opportunity to actually see lives saved on a regular basis. In the 8 months that our doors have been opened, our loving, dedicated and professional staff has many innocent babies saved from the horror of abortion and their mothers saved from the emotional scars that abortion leaves.
Even though the hours can be long and the struggles intense, there is nothing like holding a precious child in your arms that would not have lived without your intervention. The picture on my page is "Baby Nilah" who was saved through the work of Stanton Healthcare. Words cannot express the joy one fells as they realize this child will grow up to experience a life of purpose and meaning.
You can make an on-life donation through GoFund Me and help us secure this $80,000 gift.
May the Lord bless you and your family and thank you for helping us purchase our clinic debt free!
For the children;
