Nashville, Tenn., Feb. 16, 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 Hope Clinic for Women in Nashville, Tenn., and will hold a dedication ceremony Friday, Feb. 18 from 2:00-3:30 p.m. CST at the clinic’s location at 1810 Hayes Street, Nashville, TN 37203. 

The machine was placed by generous donors at the center in April 2021 as a replacement for a broken machine.

“Hope Clinic has a history of providing exceptional care for women who face unplanned pregnancies,” said Elizabeth Graham, ERLC vice president of operations and life initiatives. “We are thankful for the many ways they offer help for vulnerable moms and preborn babies. Our goal is to see abortion become unthinkable and unnecessary, while pursuing legal protection for preborn babies. Because of the gracious donations received through Psalm 139 Project, another ultrasound machine is being placed in a clinic that can begin working to show men and women the miracle of life in the mother’s womb.”

Hope Clinic for Women was established in 1983 by a group of OB/GYNs, community leaders and churches. This clinic is a faith-based, safe and confidential place for women dealing with life choices regarding past and present pregnancies. The clinic offers services such as: 

 Hope Clinic for Women has a strong reputation among clients, donors and volunteers and is open Monday-Friday to serve the Nashville community.

“The ability for a woman facing an unplanned pregnancy to learn fetal viability, estimated due date and see and hear a heartbeat is truly life-changing,” said Hope Center for Women Executive Director, Kailey Cornett. “Our clients want truth and knowledge to empower them. We’ve seen over and over that the use of this ultrasound machine has opened the eyes and hearts of countless women and their partners. For Hope Clinic for Women, over 80 percent walk away from that experience with strength to pursue life and parenting. We are so grateful for the donation of this machine that catalyzes miracles to happen.”

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.
