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 $30 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 $30 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!
The Love Chromosome
Julie and Derrick Tennant are a brother and sister team who have faced a lot of obstacles in their lives. Both have learned to transform them into opportunities. Derrick was an athlete that suffered a career-ending brain injury and Julie (the REAL star, Derrick will say) has Downs Syndrome. Downs Syndrome is caused by an extra chromosome. Julie’s grandfather told her that she does not have an extra chromosome, but everybody else is MISSING it, and it’s the “love chromosome”.
