A Higher Purpose
Save lives and help women choose life by giving them the opportunity to view their unborn children on ultrasound machines at pro-life pregnancy centers. This initiative is funded by the Arizona Knights of Columbus State Council with matching grants from the Supreme Council’s Culture of Life Fund.
The Knights of Columbus works together as an organization to purchase ultrasound machines for qualifying pregnancy centers. After the State Council raises 50% of the cost, the Knights of Columbus Supreme Council will provide the other 50% to complete funding for purchase of an ultrasound. Or, if the Council raises 100% of the cost of a vehicle outfitted to serve as a mobile medical unit for a pregnancy center, the Supreme Council will provide 100% of the funds for an ultrasound machine to be used in that vehicle.
Arizona Ultrasound Initiative
The Arizona Knights of Columbus State Council is very grateful for all the hard work of the Arizona Councils and Assemblies that have provided funds to purchase machines for:
Aid To Women Center
Hope Pregnancy Center
Care Net Sierra Vista

There are so many unborn babies that continue to lose their lives through abortions.
What else can we do besides prayer, to help save the lives of these babies?
Our Lord told this to one of the Knights that prays at an abortion clinic.
"Lord, will this really touch women that are going to the abortion clinics and help save their babies lives?"
He heard Our Lord respond in his head with such a powerful "Yes" that it shook his entire body.
Fast Fridays, Abstain from Meat. Offer up your fasting to help save the lives of unborn babies that might be aborted. You can do it! How many unborn babies' lives might you save?
