The Stork Bus is a revolutionary mobile medical unit and Save the Storks’ mission provider since 2012. This state-of-the-art bus provides women free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, STI testing, and unbridled support from a licensed medical professional.

Launch a Stork Bus in your city!
Here are the steps to get started:
Step 1: Contact your local pregnancy resource center and see if they have a desire to reach more abortion-vulnerable women in your area.
Step 2: Direct them to the Save the Storks Partner Program to learn more. (https://savethestorks.com/partnerprogram/)

Making an Impact
4 out of 5 women who step onto a Stork Bus choose life. The reality of lives being saved affirms that the Stork Bus indeed makes a difference! We view Stork Buses as a modern-day vessel of divine deliverance like that of Moses in the Bible. With every ultrasound, we introduce women to the hope living inside of them and the support that is around them. We connect with local pregnancy resource centers to expand this purpose and God’s ultimate plan to bring more life into the world.
Save the Storks’ mission is to create a story of hope and empowerment for every woman facing an unplanned pregnancy. With the Stork Bus, we get to deliver this story of hope to them.
