"A picture's worth a thousand words..."

 Did you know that “data suggest that among at risk women the combined provision of counseling and ultrasound results in nearly 60% more stated decisions for life than with counseling alone”?! 60%! Statistics created by Focus on the Family’s “Option Ultrasound Program” have concluded that since OUP’s humble beginning in 2004 roughly 81,000 babies have been saved. 81,000 precious and beautiful lives! Between 2004 and 2010 OUP has granted 378 ultrasound machines and 128 sonography trainings throughout the country. “The Option Ultrasound Program (OUP) provides grants to qualifying pregnancy medical clinics for 80% of the cost of a new ultrasound machine or sonography training for your medical personnel.”

Approximate costs for an ultrasound machine average: $21,000 - $33,000

Approximate training costs: $13,000 - $17,000

Saving a life & seeing your child for the first time: PRICELESS

With the help of Focus on the Family’s OUP, pregnancy medical clinics can file to become eligible to receive an ultrasound machine for their ministry at %20 of the cost (Focus on the Family covers the other 80%). Lee of Tennessee shares with Focus on the Family that “…going back to that first ultrasound, where I saw his heart beating, and then to hold him in my arms when he was born, I just thank God for every moment of it…that I made the right choice.” OUP had worked with organizations like Project Ultrasound to help more at risk women view ultrasounds and choose life. Project Ultrasound states that “Between seventy and ninety-percent of "abortion minded" mothers who see an ultrasound choose life, but only 40% of crisis pregnancy centers nationwide are equipped with ultrasound machines due their extremely high cost.”

Likewise, the Knights of Columbus have created the “Ultrasound Initiative.” “The Knights of Columbus Ultrasound Initiative seeks to provide medically certified pro-life pregnancy centers with the modern technology to monitor the health of babies in utero, and to allow mothers to visually experience their development.” The ultrasound is literally a “window to the womb” in which parents are able to see and realize that their child is a human being not a “choice.” Creator and Supreme Knight Carl A. Anderson stated that “Even from the early stages of pregnancy, a mother can see her developing child, hear the baby’s heartbeat, and to recognize the miracle of the new life within her.”

    “To actually know that everything had developed in such a short amount of time, if I could not have seen that, I would still have been in disbelief that that is still a child. Just to see that big bright light (the heart beat) coming out of the machine was just incredible. To know that that was a human and that was a part of me…you just gain this closeness that was really life chancing for me and I guess that was the point that I had to stand up and say that this is my child too.” – A fathers ultrasound experience

Votes Have Consequences Bus Tour

Starting next Tuesday, while Members of Congress are home for their August recess, the SBA List team will travel across Pennsylvania, Indiana and Ohio to bring a message to the “pro-life Democrats” and the voters in their districts!

As you may remember, we’ve done it before, but this time it’s different.

Seven months ago we stood outside district offices across the Midwest with messages of thanks and encouragement, imploring Reps. Brad Ellsworth, Kathy Dahlkemper, Steve Driehaus, Joe Donnelly, Baron Hill and Marcy Kaptur to hold firm to their pro-life principles and honor the will of their constituents.

Those Representatives, along with Congressmen Bart Stupak and Alan Mollohan, had all the bargaining power in their hands—the power to ensure lifesaving language be included in the health care bill. But, as we all know, they chose to compromise their principles and pass a bill without sufficient language protecting the unborn and American conscience.

That was their choice and now, through the expansion of “health care,” untold numbers of unborn babies will lose their lives before they’ve even taken their first breath.

So next week when the SBA List travels through Indiana, Pennsylvania and Ohio, on our Votes Have Consequences bus tour, it will be to mobilize pro-life voters across these districts. The only way to stop the Obama-Pelosi legislative agenda, repeal their deadly laws and cancel the gusher of tax dollars they’re channeling to abortionists, is to make sure that authentic pro-life leaders are elected in November!

Do you live in Pennsylvania, Indiana, or Ohio? Come visit us on tour! If you – or any of your friends– live near any of the cities and towns along the tour route, we’d love for you to join us and send an even stronger message for Life in 2010. Look for more updates on the SuzyB blog and SBA List website as we confirm our locations.
