But what is this day really about and how does giving actually make a difference? #GivingTuesday jumps off the charitable season by celebrating and encouraging giving and philanthropy.

Joy in the Midst of Loss

I recently had the honor of hearing a very brave woman speak to a room full of almost one hundred women about her experience with abortion. As she told her story, I was struck by much of what she had to share. She said her sister was the only one who told her she was…

Allison’s Story

The following story comes from The Pregnancy Care Center of Rockford in Rockford, IL. Overcome by emotion, Allison stepped into the Stork Bus. She was thirty-one and a mother of four children. Fears filled her head… She feared the possibility of having to care for another child on her own. She loved her four children,…

Quit Limiting Women – Adoption is an Option

Recently, I’ve read several articles telling me adoption isn’t a viable alternative for women faced with an unexpected pregnancy. I find this a bit alarming because it seems to reduce a woman’s choice to only two categories. Not only is this setting up a logical flaw, but it is also misleading. Adoption is an option…

Do You Have an Ethical View of Life?

In April of 2003, Dr. Francis Collins announced the completion of the Human Genome Project. As a result, advances in science and healthcare have progressed with lightning speed. The promise of the genomic era is here, and with it comes a growing plethora of ethical challenges.     Genetic tests are developing rapidly and are helping…

A Note to the Church on Election Day

During the 2016 election cycle, the very fabric of our nation seemed to be ripping apart. Families turned on families in heated dialogues about who should rule our country, and what the ruling principles should be. Godly people differed in their opinions and approaches. Friends declined to say who they were voting for to avoid…

We’re Stronger Together

At Save the Storks, we believe the command to love is a call to action. Whenever we face an injustice, we have to make a decision. Unless we turn away in apathy, we must choose between a spirit of anger or a spirit of grief and brokenness. And in turning to grief and brokenness, we…

Matt’s Story

The following story comes from Pregnancy Resource Center of the South Hills in Pittsburgh, PA. Before the rush of the day set upon us, the mild mannered mechanic quietly approached our mobile medical unit. As he spoke, his voice gave way to years of wear and tear, a gentle mixture of kindness and hard living…

Why the Hyde Amendment is Vital to Women

By now, most people have heard of the Hyde Amendment. The law lies at the heart of a contentious abortion debate, with groups like Planned Parenthood having recently launched massive campaigns to overturn it. But while the name might sound familiar, few Americans know exactly what the law does and doesn’t do, and arguably fewer understand the…

I Wish You Really Were Pro-Life – A Response

In pro-life work, we encounter many of the same arguments all the time, many that are based in myth more than reality. One in particular that I’m passionate about debunking and responding to is the argument that in order to truly be pro-life, you must care about all life. I recently read another article from…

Laura’s Story

The following story comes from Alpha Pregnancy Help Center in Merced, CA. Laura was their first client to choose life on their Stork Bus. Not only is her story special, but Laura is now volunteering with this center because of the impact they had on her life. I went to the clinic near my house and…

When A Mother You Know Experiences Loss

Isabella has known only the most wonderful comfort of this world. The only world she knew here on earth was the warm, protective place from within you. She heard your voice, and was rocked to sleep by your movement. She was kept warm by your body, and was sheltered from all harm. When it was…

Let’s Be Honest About Breast Cancer

“I really dislike this whole necessity to package yourself as pro-choice or pro-life; I am pro-information. When women find themselves in the situation where they have an unplanned pregnancy and they are uncertain, there isn’t a great deal of information that is absolutely neutral, ideologically” – Barbara Key of the National Post If you care…

No Salon, Pregnancy Centers Are Not Support Shams

The website Salon recently ran an article titled “Support Shams: Anti-abortion clinics masquerading as pregnancy support centers.” It’s a common hit piece that we’ve seen before (namely on Planned Parenthood’s website). Salon says that pregnancy resource centers tend to hide their pro-life bent, pretend they are a medical clinic when they aren’t, and give out…

Men, We Need to Talk

Today is NARAL’s #MenforChoice event in Washington DC. It is a first step by the pro-abortion community to include men in the conversation since removing them from it in 1973. From the moment Roe v. Wade was handed down, the pro-abortion world has worked tirelessly to ostracize the male voice from the conversation of both…

Are You Afraid to Say the Word Abortion?

In today’s society, almost nothing is taboo. From private conversations to social media, to tv and movies, there is almost no topic that isn’t covered or explicitly shown. But there is one topic that is decidedly hidden from the mainstream and even hush hushed inside of churches. Abortion. Even hearing that word makes people feel…
