Save the Storks Responds to Vicious Attack from HBO's John Oliver

Save the Storks, an innovative pro-life organization, partners with pregnancy resource centers to empower women with choice during pregnancy, has captured the imagination of millions with its fleet of luxury mobile medical vehicles, known as the Stork Bus. To date, Save the Storks has funded 42 buses, with 4,000 women choosing to keep their babies.

On April 8, 2018, John Oliver—host of HBO's Last Week Tonight—aired an episode entitled "Crisis Pregnancy Centers", contending CPCs ".... deceptively steer women away from abortion.” The monologue featured strong John Olivercriticism of Save the Storks, Oliver even created his own mock Stork Bus to drive home his pro-abortion narrative.

Will Maule, writing for our friends at Faithwire.com, shared his take on Oliver’s tasteless monologue attacking crisis pregnancy centers, saying in the course of the monologue Oliver made several false claims about these centers, insisting that they refuse to offer advice about contraception and are unethical in their tactics – for example, parking a mobile clinic outside an abortion center.

Of course, said Maule, Oliver fails to talk about the brutal abortion procedure, or the self-evident and dubious ethics behind terminating the life of a human child. Instead, he embarked on a relentless smear campaign against those who are attempting to both save lives and support anyone who chooses to keep their baby – painting them as bigoted and clueless religious fanatics who only care about their political agenda.

Now, as Mother's Day approaches, our friends at Save the Storks have powerfully rebutted Oliver’s crass bullying with their first social media video campaign, crafted by the Harmon Brothers, the most successful social ad agency in the world.  With this Mother's Day campaign Save the Storks believes they will redefine what is possible for pro-life Americans.

"There are untold millions who have long been eager to come to the aid of would-be mothers in crisis; millions who believe they have limited opportunities to make a real difference. That changes today. This Mother's Day campaign gives passionate, pro-life Americans the most measurable, quantifiable, and easily-accessible tools in history to make an unlimited impact wherever they are, beginning immediately," said Victoria Robinson, Director of External Relations at Save the Storks. "Had information and resources like this been available to me when I was a young mother in crisis, I would have made vastly different choices. Every would-be mother has a fundamental right to understand all of her options during pregnancy, and we can't wait to see how expanding on the success of Storks will transform countless lives...forever."
