When the Stanton Mobile Clinic is open, lives are impacted!
After just a few short months of being open, it has become clear that the Stanton Mobile is desperately needed by women who would otherwise patronize Planned Parenthood.
We are seeing clients every week who either came to Stanton because Planned Parenthood wouldn't provide ultrasound or prenatal care, or because Planned Parenthood tried to sell them the abortion pill. The Stanton ultrasound machine is put to good use, as these mothers see their babies move on the screen and hear tiny heartbeats going strong.
The Mobile team led by Jayne Schuljak, our Director of Operations, is doing a wonderful job with the resources they have been given. However, our operating hours are currently very limited because of staffing, and we desperately need compassionate volunteers to step forward and help make the Mobile available to more women.
Please take a look below to see how you may be able to help (either in the Mobile or by contributing towards fuel or other crucial supplies)! We can maximize the Mobile's impact just by a few good people stepping up and being willing to give and serve. Thank you!
