“Autos for Life” … a Ford comes full circle!

1998_escort_067reSince beginning some years ago, Autos for Life has received a great outpouring of support from dedicated pro-lifers across the country! We have received an outstanding variety of donated vehicles, ranging from classic and luxury cars, to economy cars, minivans, jet skis and boats! We thank you, and the babies thank you!

There have also been some great stories associated with this program! One such story begins several years ago when a pro-life college student purchased a NICE Ford Escort sedan that had been donated to Autos for Life by a pro-life family in Virginia.

The student loved the car, and it served him well. Unfortunately, one snowy morning a couple of winters ago, the car was involved in an accident with a MUCH LARGER SUV! The driver of the SUV took an off ramp too fast, lost control, and bounded across several lanes of traffic before slamming into the Ford Escort.

Luckily, neither driver was injured, but the Escort was a total loss! The pro-life college student liked the car so much, that he went and bought another Escort to replace it.

Fast forward to earlier this year. The same college student now is now studying for his doctorate, and works on the same campus where he attends class. He also lives just a few minutes away from school, and realized that he did not need a car.

After thinking it over, he decided to donate his Ford Escort (that replaced the one that had been wrecked) back to Autos for Life in appreciation of the work that we do, and for helping him get a car in the first place. This car was placed online for sale, and (in an interesting twist) was bought by a pro-life Crisis Pregnancy Center in Virginia for transporting their clients!

The Reverend who is also the President and CEO of the Crisis Pregnancy Center, was delighted. This car would be replacing the car that they had been using until recently when the transmission went bad. This was a win– win for all parties involved, and is a great, full circle pro-life story!

We need more great stories, and this is how you can help!

By donating your vehicle to the National Right to Life, you can help save the lives of countless unborn babies and you can receive a tax deduction for the FULL SALE AMOUNT!

Donated vehicles can be of any age, and can be located anywhere in the country! All that we need from you is a description of the vehicle (miles, vehicle identification number (VIN#, condition, features, the good, the bad, etc.) along with several pictures (the more the better), and we’ll take care of the rest. Digital photos preferred, but other formats work as well. You don’t have to bring the vehicle anywhere, or do anything with it, and there is no additional paperwork to complete. The buyer picks the vehicle up directly from you at your convenience!

Autos for Life needs your help in making 2014 a great year for the pro-life movement!

If you or someone you know has a vehicle to donate, please contact David O’Steen Jr. at (202) 626-8823 or dojr@nrlc.org. Please join us in helping to defend the most defenseless in our society. With our educational efforts we will continue to see a dramatic reduction in the number of abortions each year. We also know that we will continue to see those numbers decline even more as we teach the truth about how abortion hurts babies and their mothers.

Again, we thank you and the babies thank you!!!
