What is Save the Storks?
Save the Storks was founded in 2011 by Joe and Ann Baker with the initial primary goal of launching mobile medical units across the country to serve abortion-vulnerable women through pregnancy resource centers. Our vision has expanded to help change the pro-life and pregnancy center movements to incorporate innovation, creativity, and new ideas to promote a culture of life in the United States.
What is a Stork Bus?
It is a mobile medical unit equipped with a counseling area and a state-of-the-art ultrasound machine, which allows pregnancy centers to show mothers an image of their baby. At the end of the day, pregnancy centers own and operate these vehicles as affiliates of Save the Storks so women can receive the follow-up support they need from their own local community.
Why go mobile?
To assist pregnancy resource centers in equipping more women with the services they need, where they are, to make life-affirming choices.
How does your partnership with pregnancy resource centers work?
Our desire is to provide pregnancy resource centers with Stork Buses as an extension of their ministry. This enables them to meet with women outside abortion clinics or on college campuses instead of waiting for women to come to them. Abortion-vulnerable women who decide to keep their children often need counseling, discipleship, a loving community, food, formula, clothing, diapers, and so much more – all provided through local pregnancy centers.

How does $30/month save one mother and baby each year?
