Our Mobile Medical Unit, Evangeline, has arrived! We began operating our Save the Storks bus in March, bringing free pregnancy testing and ultrasound to abortion-vulnerable women in Hardeman, Haywood, and Fayette Counties. Save the Storks says that 4 out of 5 women who get on their Stork Buses, after being fully informed, choose life!
Since June we have seen dozens of clients on our Mobile Clinic. Over 70% of abortion-minded women will choose life after coming to Birth Choice and seeing their babies on ultrasound. In fact, 131 babies were saved from abortion in 2019 because of God’s work through this ministry.
We are stationed in Brownsville on Tuesdays, Oakland on Wednesdays, and Bolivar on Thursdays. Anyone wanting to make an appointment can call 731-664-8443.
In early 2021 we will expand our reach to Lexington (in Henderson County) on Mondays and to Savannah (in Hardin County) on Fridays. Our current needs in these areas are to find a place to park the bus, finding volunteer client advocates to work on the bus, and finding churches and individuals to help support our ministry in these communities. For information on volunteering or to give a tip on a potential spot to park the bus, please email our Mobile Clinic Director, Katy Simpson, at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on supporting our bus operations or informational materials to share with your congregation, email email@example.com or call 731-453-8159.
For years we have seen multiple women from the Lexington area travel all the way to Jackson to receive help. Now we are heading there to meet them where they are. Aditionally, we have felt the Lord press upon our hearts the need to travel to Savannah where there is no pregnancy ministry within 30 minutes of driving distance. Hardeman, Haywood, and Fayette Counties, where we currently serve, have some of the highest abortion rates in all 95 counties in Tennessee, ranking numbers three, four, and five, respectively, according to the Tennessee Department of Health.
