Knights Newsletter | News Comments Off on Knights Donate 1000 Ultrasound Machines

The Knights of Columbus has donated its 1,000th ultrasound machine to pregnancy centers around the world, fulfilling a 10-year initiative to give millions of babies a chance at life. This video shows “Aid for Women” right here in Chicago. They have 4 crisis pregnancy centers, each with an ultra sound machine donated by the Knights of Columbus. They also have 2 residential facilities supported by The Fr. Michael J McGivney Center for Hope & Healing.  We all as Knights should be very proud of the great accomplishment.

Millions of babies have had a chance at life, thanks to 1,000 ultrasound machines donated by you and your brother Knights around the world.

Congratulations to our Knights in Manassas, Va., where the 1,000th machine was just dedicated! Read about the dedication here.

At the dedication, Supreme Knight Carl Anderson said that the Knights of Columbus Ultrasound Initiative is the greatest humanitarian effort the organization has ever undertaken.

“Today represents a very concrete way in which millions of lives are changed for the better by the Catholic community coming together and volunteering together,” said Anderson. “What greater legacy can a person have than
to save a child’s life?”

As hundreds of thousands gather in Washington, D.C., to pay witness to the Culture of Life, check out the video below and share our pride in the Knights of Columbus Ultrasound program!
