A milestone for Catholic Charities’ pro-life activities was announced at the July Luncheons for Life meeting where colleagues shared the exciting news of a generous gift: two mobile pregnancy units from God’s Resources, Inc., a nonprofit dedicated to reaching abortion-minded women and men with life-saving options in the midst of an unwanted pregnancy.
Founded in 2013, God’s Resources operated without any government funding, depending solely on donations from their supporters. Their volunteers possessed multifaceted skill sets: some had a medical background, some came from the corporate world, and others were former educators. All were dedicated to the cause of life.
The beauty of this kind of on-site mobility is the advantage of having a fully equipped, ultrasound mobile unit offering free medical-grade pregnancy tests, sonogram exams, proof of pregnancy, calculation of due date, pregnancy option counseling, STD awareness and STI education with community resource referrals and support systems while promoting the benefits of purity.
The power of this strategy is when a mother hears her baby’s heartbeat (in surround sound) for the first time and sees the life within on the monitor in real time. Her takeaway is receiving the baby’s imaging print to share with others — something Planned Parenthood will not do. When there is support, the client is able to determine her best path forward.
