Our mission is to empower abortion-minded mothers all over America to choose life. We’re accomplishing this by partnering with local pregnancy centers that will own and operate our vehicles outside of abortion clinics to reach women who feel like they only have one choice.

And in doing so, it celebrates the other functions of sex, to give pleasure and bring two people closer together.
