ERLC’s Psalm 139 Project Dedicates Ultrasound Machine to Lifeline Pregnancy Center in Topeka, Kansas

Nashville, Tenn., Sept. 27, 2022—The Psalm 139 Project, a pro-life ministry of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, has donated an ultrasound machine to Lifeline Pregnancy Center in Topeka, Kan., as a part of their mission to place 50 ultrasound machines in pregnancy care centers by 2023. 

The dedication ceremony will be held Tuesday, Sept. 27, from 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. CDT at 2041 SW McAlister Ave, Topeka, Kan., 66604. ERLC representatives will be present at the dedication service along with staff from the center. 

Lifeline Pregnancy Center, formerly operated under the name of Caring Pregnancy Options, has served the greater Topeka area for more than 20 years. It was acquired by Lifeline Children Services five years ago and transitioned to a medical clinic in 2021. 

“We are thrilled to have this ultrasound machine as a resource for women and families at our pregnancy center,” said Jessa Swearingen, center manager and outreach coordinator of Lifeline Pregnancy Center. “We know that an ultrasound is a powerful tool that allows parents to see their baby. It fosters bonding even while the baby is in the womb and can lead families to make a life-giving parenting choice for their child. We have already been able to serve numerous expectant parents with this service and we are prayerful that we can continue to share the Gospel while providing compassionate care for moms, dads and their children.”

The ultrasound machine provided by the Psalm 139 Project was shipped in December 2021 to begin serving vulnerable mothers and children. 

“We are thrilled to be able to come alongside Lifeline Pregnancy Center in giving this new ultrasound machine and providing training to their staff,” said Rachel Wiles, director of Psalm 139 Project placements. “We pray that women in Northeast Kansas will be well served by this machine for years to come.”

One hundred percent of financial contributions designated to the Psalm 139 Project go toward purchasing ultrasound machines and providing training for workers. No Cooperative Program resources are used for these machines. Tax-deductible gifts may be made online to The Psalm 139 Project, or via check to ERLC, 901 Commerce Street, Nashville, Tenn., 37203.
