ONTARIO, Oregon (LifeSiteNews) — A pro-life pregnancy resource center has parked a bus next to a just-opened Planned Parenthood facility on the Oregon-Idaho border to encourage women to choose life for their preborn children.
Planned Parenthood opened an abortion mill in Ontario, Oregon on Thursday, a city bordering Idaho, in response to Idaho’s ban of nearly all abortions upon the reversal of Roe v. Wade. Idaho’s trigger law now bans abortion throughout pregnancy except in cases of rape and incest when reported to law enforcement, and when needed to preserve the mother’s life.
Stanton Healthcare, which oversees pro-life medical clinics “specializ[ing] in unexpected pregnancy care,” quickly swooped in to park a bus next to the Planned Parenthood facility, to serve women who may be considering abortion and help save their babies’ lives.
UPDATE (03/07/23): Walgreens won’t dispense abortion pills in 20 states
The pressure is paying off. Walgreens’ plan to dispense abortion pills nationwide is now in tatters, with the pharmaceutical giant announcing that it won’t mail the pills to, or sell them within, 20 states.
The news comes after 20 Republican attorneys general warned CVS and Walgreens that doing so would be in violation of federal law and that they were opening themselves to penalties.
But we can’t rest on our laurels with this boycott: Walgreens and CVS will only listen to us when their profits are threatened — we need a HUGE boycott so that blood money they get from selling abortion pills is dwarfed by the profits they lose when pro-life America shops elsewhere.
Even Politico admitted in its reporting that “pressure” from pro-life voters like you helped change Walgreens’ plans, so now we’re asking you to take the next step: simply share this petition with your friends and ask them to join the boycott.
Walgreens and CVS will begin selling mifepristone — a powerful chemical that kills unborn children in the womb — if pro-life America does not ACT NOW.
Pro-life Americans MUST STOP the widespread sale and distribution of mifepristone by sending a message that only big-box stores will understand: A NATIONAL BOYCOTT OF WALGREENS AND CVS.
Walgreens and CVS are the newest back-door channels for the pro-abortion movement, now that the Supreme Court has overturned Roe v. Wade.
Will you act now to STOP abortion drugs from reaching your pharmacy?
Our work in the pro-life movement is FAR from over, especially now that Walgreens and CVS have chosen to push deadly drugs in their stores and in our communities!
SIGN and SEND a message to Walgreens and CVS! This is completely unacceptable!
We must stop abortion from reaching our pharmacies and stop the abortion industry from poisoning our communities — before it’s too late.
These big-box stores respond only to profit. The pro-life movement must enact a national boycott if the abortion industry dares flood our neighborhoods!
SIGN and SEND a strong message to Walgreens and CVS: unless they immediately reverse course, the entire pro-life movement will BOYCOTT their stores!
SIGN NOW and send a clear message!

The pro-life group “could not remain silent or indifferent as we brought our 37-foot, state-of-the-art, mobile medical clinic right next door to Planned Parenthood,” commented Brandi Swindell, CEO and founder of Stanton Healthcare.
“It is deeply troubling that Planned Parenthood is engaged in ‘trafficking’ abortion across state lines as well as supporting the violence of abortion against the women and children of Oregon,” Swindell said.
Linda Thomas, director of community outreach for Stanton Healthcare, explained that as Planned Parenthood is “actively sending Idaho women across state lines” to profit from abortion, their pro-life clinic is helping to open women’s minds and hearts to the possibility of choosing life for their children.
“Of the women we see at Stanton Healthcare who are considering an abortion, a full 90% report feeling pressured to do so by someone they trust. Abortion is not the option women choose when they have the support they want and deserve. That’s why we’re in Ontario with our mobile medical clinic,” Thomas said.
“No woman wakes up in the morning and wants to have an abortion,” she noted.
Swindell highlighted the fact that unlike Planned Parenthood, which “treats women as a commodity for profit,” their organization aims to uplift and provide “tangible support” to women “at no charge.”
Reviews of Stanton Healthcare show the group has already provided numerous women practical and assistance including counseling, clothing, and diapers, and has inspired at least one mother to choose life for her child.
“Planned Parenthood pushed getting an abortion on me, but the people at Stanton Health gave me peace of mind and hope! So thankful I had love and support from them to make the right choice and give my child life!!!” Leab Brook commented.
Stanton’s flagship clinic is located almost 50 miles away in Meridian, Idaho, where they share a parking lot with the largest Planned Parenthood center in the state.
In contrast to Idaho, Oregon provides no protections for preborn children, permitting abortion on demand until the moment of birth. The state allocated $15 million in funding in 2022 to cover abortion costs for out-of-state women in response to the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization Supreme Court decision overturning Roe.
