64% of women who chose to abort said they felt pressured by others to do it.
There’s no “choice” when you’re pressured into having an abortion. We believe information is the most important part of empowering a mother to make a choice she won’t later regret. We partner with pregnancy centers to offer free ultrasounds to women who are pressured into abortion. The best part is that 4 out of 5 women who get on our Stork Buses, after being fully informed, choose life!
We estimate that $35 a month saves one mother and her child from abortion every year.
We emphasize the mother AND the child because we know abortion hurts so much more than just the baby. We’ve done the math and know that the cost of our buses divided by the number of women who choose life on our buses (32 per week) comes out to about $35 a month to save a stork (mom + baby).
We currently have 33 buses (another 20 in production) in communities all over the country serving women by offering free ultrasounds, pregnancy tests, STD tests, and many other resources. We take pregnancy resources mobile so we can park outside of abortion clinics or universities where we know women are being pressured to make decisions they don’t like. We’re making the option of life impossible to ignore. Once women see their ultrasound and hear the heartbeat they understand the reality of their decision. One picture changes everything!
Kristin had a life-changing encounter with Jesus Christ three years ago while pregnant with her second child. For 27 years, Kristin lived as a non-believer. She once mocked Christians and laughed about their “relationship with a dead guy.” However, after her encounter with Christ, Kristin was launched into a relationship with the Holy Spirit and came to understand that the King LIVES and that Jesus is who he says he is. Since that day Kristin has laid down her life and picked up her cross to follow Jesus. Since giving her life to Christ, the Holy Spirit has led her on an incredible adventure that the Lord has filled with love, forgiveness, healing, and grace.Kristin has passionately and lovingly joined the pro-life movement because God has revealed to her His heart for the unborn and for mothers-to-be. Kristin can understand all sides of abortion because she has experienced every side of the issue. In the past, she had gone to Planned Parenthood and asked for the morning after pill to prevent an unplanned pregnancy. She knows what it’s like to be an unwed and pregnant mother faced with a decision to make. She also knows what it’s like to be a child that was meant for destruction; her deepest wounds are traced back to her own mother telling her how she tried to have an abortion with Kristin and failed. She even knows what it’s like to walk hand in hand with other moms-to-be and have Christ’s love come alive inside her heart so much so that she and her husband now personally offer to adopt babies who are at risk of abortion. What the enemy has intended for harm and destruction, God has redeemed, healed, and made whole again in her heart. Kristin can’t wait to share what God is doing in her life, in her heart and most of all what His vision is for the pro-life movement and for the body of Christ. “May all the glory and praise be to God our Lord Jesus Christ!”
