New ultrasound machines for Open Arms Clinic

(Coeur d’Alene Press) Open Arms, a new nonprofit pregnancy medical clinic in Hayden, has two new ultrasound machines which were recently donated by the Idaho Knights of Columbus.

“We know that upon seeing their baby’s image on an ultrasound machine and being provided with help and support from nonprofit organizations like the Open Arms Pregnancy Center, the vast majority of pregnant women will choose life,” said Roy Bartholomay, Idaho State Deputy for the Knights of Columbus, in a news release. “We are excited to continue to provide ultrasound technology to pregnancy centers that offer hope and support to women and their babies.”

The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic fraternal organization dedicated to the sanctity of life, said the release.

The overall effort on this project was coordinated by the St. Thomas Council of the Knights, according to Mike Anderson, the St. Thomas Council’s financial secretary.  (Read More)
