No matter what your religion or your politics, St Gerard’s needs your help as it continues its mission to save the lives of unborn children. St Gerard’s is located in downtown Hartford and is a place pregnant women can turn to before making a decision whether to save or abort … and they are trying to raise money for an ultrasound.
If you are not familiar with St Gerard’s Center for Life here’s the rundown:
St. Gerard’s Center for Life is a Catholic Pregnancy Resource Center whose mission is to assist mothers make life-affirming decisions (e.g., keeping their baby or placing their child for adoption) by providing them with material, emotional and spiritual support (i.e., we assist the mothers in getting their children baptized in the church). Since opening on March 25, 2004, we have served over 2,200 mothers and children in need and more than 350 babies lives have been saved (i.e, which otherwise would have died from abortion).
Now St Gerard’s needs your help. They are trying to raise $40,000 for an ultrasound. The reason is simple. With an ultrasound executive director Theresa Krankowski, Ed.D. can let a picture do the talking.
Throughout the nation, pregnancy centers report that when women are given the chance to see the life within them on the ultrasound, 80% to 90% choose life (Catholic Register, August 23, 2009)!
