Nashville, Tenn., Feb. 10, 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 Gate Pregnancy Resource Center, located at Cabarrus Dream Center in Concord, N.C., which is a centralized location that exists to unite local organizations in providing the underserved with assistance and resources pertaining to alleviation of poverty, homelessness, drug abuse/addiction, family crises, human trafficking, behavioral health challenges and housing disparity. 

The center will hold a dedication ceremony Tuesday, Feb. 15 from 12:30 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. EST at the clinic’s location at 280 Concord Pkwy, suite 119, Concord, NC 28027.

The training course for the unit took place in October 2021 and will be placed at the clinic’s second location serving the Concord, N.C. community. 

“The work of the Gate Pregnancy Resource Center is invaluable to the state of North Carolina,” said Elizabeth Graham, ERLC vice president of operations and life initiatives. “We are thankful for the ways Cabarrus Dream Center provides holistic care for the most vulnerable in their community. With this ultrasound placement, more women will be empowered to choose life. This work is precious and we are grateful to God that we are one step further in the process to make abortion unthinkable and unnecessary in our day.”
