Anti-abortion and anti-contraception healthcare provider eyes federal family planning funds

by Kimberly Leonard | Washington Examiner  |  Published on January 15, 2020

Stanton Healthcare, a women’s health organization that opposes contraception and presents itself as the anti-abortion alternative to Planned Parenthood, is weighing applying for federal family planning funds this year.

Brandi Swindell, 43, the founder and CEO of Stanton Healthcare, told the Washington Examiner that she has met two to three times with officials at the Department of Health and Human Services in the Trump administration and that her organization will not compromise its opposition to birth control to receive the grants.

“Stanton will not do anything that will undermine our beliefs, our policies, and the vision for who we are,” Swindell said.

The organization helps people avoid unintended pregnancies through natural methods, including teaching women how to track their ovulation to determine which days of the month they are unlikely to get pregnant. It currently doesn’t accept any government funds and also doesn’t charge patients for its services. Swindell said its mission was to “represent the millions of Americans and women that reject Planned Parenthood’s brand of abortion healthcare.”

“We believe women deserve the truth about how to maintain control over their bodies when it comes to their reproductive health, and it doesn’t have to include Big Pharma and synthetic hormones being put into their bodies … There is a growing trend of a hunger of women wanting other alternatives,” Swindell said.
