Ultrasound Help Needed!

Dear Friends of Life,

As we spend this week contemplating the Holy Sacrifice that Christ suffered for us on the cross, we continue our time of Lenten sacrifice in prayer, fasting and almsgiving. These three components of our faith are vital to our spiritual growth and unity with the suffering of Christ. Along with your prayer with us at the rosary this coming Good Friday, we also invite you to consider giving to those in need who are working to nourish life. We have recently been informed that the Hope Mobile Ultrasound Clinic, which provides services in front of the Glendale Planned Parenthood, ASU, and Phoenix College, has a faulty ultrasound machine. This machine is vital to their mission, and they cannot afford a new one without the support of the pro-life community. Please contact Tanya or Sheila from Life Choices, if you would like to make a donation towards the unit.

Phone: 602-305-5100  

Please consider making a Holy Week sacrifice for life.

See below for more detailed information:

Life Choices Women’s Clinic is in great need. Our ministry to abortion–minded women relies on good quality ultrasound images. So often because of pressures from boyfriends, parents, and the culture, a mother forgets to love.
Yet, at that precious moment, when a mother sees her little one on the ultrasound for the first time, things start to change and she begins to love. Through tears, comes a smile….that’s my baby.
In March, we joined our ministry with Hope Mobile ultrasound clinic and immediately saw God’s wonderful work. We offered services at Planned Parenthood Glendale, ASU, and Phoenix College. At ASU we provided STD testing to fourteen students, and we had nineteen patients in five hours during our time at Phoenix College. On Thursday we saw six women, who were scheduled for abortions, turn away from Planned Parenthood to step into the Hope Mobile clinic.
On Saturday, three women came into our clinic seeking ultrasounds but the machine would not turn on. We actually had to watch one of our patients leave us to go to Planned Parenthood for her ultrasound. We were eventually able to get the machine up and running, but it has been unreliable since the initial occurrence. This has been a heartbreaking setback for our ministry. Our ability to reach women and show them the truth about the new life inside of them is
largely dependent on this machine.
Will you please help us? A new portable machine from GE costs $45,000, but we would be grateful for any assistance that could help purchase a demo model for $30,000. If we can get as many groups as possible to pledge donations, we can begin the process of purchasing a new device.
Please pray for us, and pass this message along to anyone who can help. On behalf of the thousands of moms and babies we serve yearly, thank you!
For all God’s little ones,
Sheila Riely

Director, Life Choices Women’s Clinics
