Knights of Columbus Ultrasound Program Assists Pregnant Women
Date:1/22/2009

Pregnancy centers receive funding for new medical technology

NEW HAVEN, Conn., Jan. 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As the nation marked the 36th anniversary of the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion on demand the Knights of Columbus launched a new initiative aimed at providing women considering abortion a new way of viewing the life within them.

The K of C Supreme Council, in cooperation with its state council affiliates in Iowa and Florida, today provided two crisis pregnancy centers complete funding for the acquisition of ultrasound machines that will help the centers better provide for the health of both mother and child. Ultrasound exams, which are medically indicated throughout pregnancy for a variety diagnostic reasons, use sound waves to scan a woman's abdomen, creating a picture or "sonogram" of the baby in her uterus.

Without K of C support, these centers would be unable to purchase the ultrasound devices, each costing tens of thousands of dollars.

The Women's Help Center Inc. in Jacksonville, Fla., received a check today from K of C Supreme Director Dennis J. Stoddard and Florida State Deputy James J. Schonefeld. Supreme Director David A. Bellendier and Iowa State Deputy Patrick T. O'Keefe presented a check to Choices Medical Clinic in Iowa City, Iowa.

"The sophistication of today's medical technology provides a 'window on the womb,'" said Supreme Knight Carl A. Anderson. "Even from the early stages of pregnancy, a mother can see her developing child, hear the baby's heartbeat, and to recognize the miracle of new life within her."

The Knights of Columbus ultrasound project seeks to provide medically certified pro-life pregnancy centers with the modern technology to monitor the health of babies in utero, and to allow mothers to visually experience that development.
