NASHVILLE, Tenn., Oct. 13, 2020—The Psalm 139 Project, a pro-life ministry of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, placed an ultrasound machine at Mosaic Sexual Health Clinic, a new facility opened by A Women’s Pregnancy Center in Tallahassee, Fla. as a part of its mission to save lives.

The Psalm 139 Project focuses on aiding pregnancy resource centers by securing ultrasound machines. Since its inception, the Psalm 139 Project has provided 24 ultrasound machines for pregnancy care centers in Florida, Louisiana, Texas, Indiana, Colorado, Mississippi, Florida, Arizona, Ohio, Maryland, Missouri, Tennessee, South Carolina, Alabama, Arkansas and New Mexico. 

Elizabeth Graham, ERLC vice president of operations and life initiatives, commented on the significance of the ultrasound placement machine. 

“The Psalm 139 Project allows the ERLC to raise money for life saving ultrasound machines, where 100 percent of the proceeds go towards the purchasing, training and placement of a machine in a pregnancy resource center. Each placement allows abortion-vulnerable and abortion-determined women to get a glimpse of the life inside their womb. We are thankful for our partnership with Mosaic Sexual Health Clinic and A Women’s Pregnancy Center and the wonderful work they are doing to rescue babies in Tallahassee. We have seen, firsthand, the positive effect these ultrasound machines have on saving preborn lives and will continue to place machines in pregnancy resource centers and women’s health clinics around the country.”

Jamie Brown, executive director for A Women’s Pregnancy Center, commented on the Psalm 139 Project’s ultrasound placement. 

“Women come to Mosaic Sexual Health Clinic often terrified and confused as they face an unexpected pregnancy. Thanks to the Psalm 139 Project’s generous donation of a brand new ultrasound machine, we can gently show them their children for the first time. The moment they see their child, everything shifts in their hearts. Now they have a child, not just a problem. Planned Parenthood, our next door neighbor, charges $100 for their clients to see their ultrasound. We let them see for free. Thanks to the Psalm 139 Project for providing this stunning opportunity to show our clients life. Many children are being rescued from abortion because you care.”

Dean Inserra, pastor of The City Church in Tallahassee, Fla., and local ministry partner at Mosaic Sexual Health Center commented on the placement. 

“As a local church, we are first and foremost called to the mission field of our local community. A Women’s Pregnancy Center is a vital part of ministry in Tallahassee and receiving the gift of an ultrasound machine from the ERLC Psalm 139 Project greatly increases the effectiveness of ministering to some of the most vulnerable in our community. The Center is literally next door to Planned Parenthood, so the advancement of equipment and technology is essential for the flourishing of the center and their ministry. As a church we are thrilled to partner with both the ERLC and A Women’s Pregnancy Center.” 

Earlier this year, the Psalm 139 Project also placed an ultrasound machine at Care Net of Las Cruces in Las Cruces, New Mexico that is used to offer support and care for clients making a pregnancy choice for life. 

One hundred percent of financial contributions donated to the Psalm 139 Project go toward purchasing ultrasound machines and providing training for workers. Tax-deductible gifts may be made to ERLC, 901 Commerce Street, Nashville, Tenn., 37203. Learn more at psalm139project.com
