A pro-life organization got lots of free publicity thanks to a late-night comedian who mocked its mission to save babies in the womb.
John Oliver used a segment of his lewd and crude HBO show to suggest Save the Storks tricks women into keeping their babies instead of aborting them.
The organization uses more than 40 mobile medical vans and buses, equipped with professional medical equipment, to perform free ultrasounds on women considering abortion.
More than 4,000 women have chosen life after seeing their babies beating hearts in the womb, the organization states on its website.
Save the Storks spokeswoman Victoria Robinson says Oliver's skit made it obvious where he stands on the issue of abortion.
"And I think this just creates great opportunity for us to get the conversation going," she says. "In other aspects, he kind of did us a favor to be honest."
There is still a need, Robinson tells OneNewsNow, to set the record straight after being the subject of ridicule by the late-night show, which used humor not only to mock Save the Storks but to ask the liberal audience why its buses are allowed to operate without legal punishment.
"This is all perfectly legal," Oliver complained as the skit concluded.
"What I love about the Save the Storks and its buses is that they're not there to judge or condemn," Robinson insists. "The medical team on the buses, the staff at Save the Storks, are all about helping these would-be mothers so that they can make their own choice and know that they have other options."
