Why I Participate

"Ultrasound technology provides vivid images of the baby in the womb. Life News reports "78% of pregnant women seeing an ultrasound reject abortions". When a woman is able to see her child at a very early stage she is more likely to carry the child to full term."

"I am participating in Laps for Life to represent my peers that never had a chance at life, whose parents chose abortion. The pro-life movement is an example of love and courage, to stand up for others and show value for each human life. This ultrasound is an additional resource in fighting the good fight, protecting lives and encouraging appreciation of all life.."
"Laps for life is a way of putting our faith into action. With the help of the Knights of Columbus we are able to assist pregnancy centers in the important task of buying an ultrasound. This technology is a game changer in the fight for life! We can never know how many babies have been saved but we can say that we did our part in helping the cause of life. Together we can save lives! "
"I am participating in Laps 4 Life, because motherhood is a gift that every pregnant woman should experience. It is God-given, intentional and personal for that beautiful young girl whom He loves so much. This gift will give her the fullness of life that her feminine heart was created for and yearns for. "Whoever receives one child in my name, receives me." Mark 9:37. To not encourage, love and support pregnant women with this reality is an injustice to them and to society."
