"Truly children are a gift from the Lord;
the fruit of the womb is a reward"
Good Morning friends! Happy Thursday! Today I am sharing about an organization that I truly believe in. My husband and I have been looking at various organizations to support as a family. We are trying to be discerning when looking at these organizations, because we want to support a cause that we feel led by the Lord to do so. When I came across this organization on a dear blogger's site, I just knew this was the organization I felt the Lord leading me to!
"Project Ultrasound is a non-profit organization which has been formed for the purpose of raising awareness about the effectiveness of ultrasound machines in deterring abortions, and raising funds to provide ultrasound machines to crisis pregnancy centers nationwide. We believe that life begins at the moment of conception, and that all life is a precious gift from God. It is with this understanding that we have made it our mission to help provide the instrument through which this truth about the unborn can be seen by mothers contemplating abortion. Such a crucial decision should not be based merely upon what a mother hears, but all mothers should be given the right to see the truth about their unborn child with their own eyes on an ultrasound. Various reports indicate that 70-90% of "abortion minded" mothers who see an ultrasound change their mind and choose life. At present only 40% of crisis pregnancy centers nationwide are equipped with these machines because of their extremely high cost and the extremely limited budget of these non-profit centers. Help us bring ultrasound machines into those centers that don't have them, and help us allow mothers to see life, so they can choose life."
Friends, there is a terrible massacre taking place in our nation and in our world! That massacre is abortion. I truly believe that life begins at the moment of conception and that all life is a PRECIOUS GIFT from Jesus. I believe that we are the greatest advocate for the unborn.
Here are some astonishing statistics on abortion in America.
- There have been approximately 50 million abortions since the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision in 1973. (CDC)
- Approximately 1.2 million abortions occur annually in the United States, which amounts to approximately 3,300 abortions every day. (CDC)
- Approximately 1 in 4 pregnancies end in abortion. (CDC)
Please Pray Friends for these unborn babies, their mothers and our nation as a whole!
