Opening a Window to the Womb

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.



The Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention is dedicated to protecting life in all stages of development, especially those in the womb. The Psalm 139 Project is an initiative designed to make 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. This project provides a way for motivated individuals to assist financially in the placement of ultrasound machines in qualified pregnancy care centers.

Simply put, it’s all about saving lives.

Every mother, every child, every heartbeat matters to God.

Every day, Pregnancy Resource Centers assist an average of 6500 Americans, male and female, young and old, with sexuality and pregnancy related concerns.


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.

Ultrasounds introduce mothers to their children for the first time.

In 2010, roughly 1000 Pregnancy Resource Centers provided about 230,000 ultrasounds, at little or no cost. These ultrasounds introduce mothers to their children for the first time.
