We, on the other hand, proudly raise money for Crisis Pregnancy Centres

What a waste of time and money.

A new program sponsored by the national Knights of Columbus has helped its first pregnancy center obtain an ultrasound machine. The program is meant to provide pregnancy centers with the tools to help women considering an abortion see their baby and choose pro-life alternatives.

The Supreme Office of the Knights of Columbus and the Florida State Council of the Knights of Columbus yesterday donated $44,050 dollars to the Women's Help Center in Jacksonville, Florida, for the purchase of a new 4-D ultrasound machine.

A pricey piece of medical equipment that will serve no useful medical purpose. Instead, images from it will be misrepresented to women to manipulate and scare them out of choosing an abortion.

Glad to see such righteous priorities.

Better the ultra-sound was used to diagnose the knee-jerk reactions that often plague religious zealots as they seek to undermine a woman's right to choose?

4-D? What's the fourth dimension?

Here's a professional observation: "... the FDA and now the American College of Radiology support the position that fetal ultrasound should only be performed for medical purposes with a prescription from an appropriately licensed provider. Dr. Fergal Malone is with the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine and says parents should proceed with caution. The 4-d ultrasound machine is a diagnostic tool, it's not an entertainment tool. If you do entertainment sonography, there is very little criteria on how to handle it if an abnormality is found."
