There are many ways to be a champion for life, and one of them is providing a woman in a crisis pregnancy a "window" into the world of the child she is carrying. This is the intent of the Psalm 139 Project - to aid pregnancy resource centers in securing ultrasound machines.
Most women in a crisis pregnancy who are given a glimpse of the life within them choose life. However, this is only possible when women can go to a pregnancy center with an ultrasound machine. Sonogram machines are expensive, costing tens of thousands of dollars. Most crisis pregnancy centers do not have the funds to buy the equipment or have a medical expert on staff to "read" the output.
“If wombs had windows, people would be much more reticent to abort babies because they would be forced to confront the evident humanity of the baby from very early gestation onward,” Richard Land has said, explaining that sonograms provide such a window into the womb.
The Psalm 139 Project is dedicated to making people aware of the life-saving potential of ultrasound technology in crisis pregnancy situations and to help pregnancy centers minister to abortion-vulnerable women by providing ultrasound equipment for them to use. The project provides a way for motivated individuals to assist financially in the placement of ultrasound machines in qualified pregnancy care centers.
Many pro-life leaders and those working within the pregnancy centers cite improvements in ultrasound technology and increased accessibility to the machines as key reasons for a growing awareness that a human life is being taken in an abortion.
