ALBANY, GA (WALB) –The Knights of Columbus donates an ultra sound machine to an Albany crisis pregnancy center hoping to help prevent abortions.

Several members of the Albany and state Knights of Columbus organizations presented the new machine to the Alpha Counseling and Pregnancy Center Tuesday.

The center is a ministry of Sherwood Baptist Church and counsels up to 300 pregnant women a year, many of them are teenagers.

This is the third ultrasound that the Knights of Columbus has donated in their pro-life movement.

[CG :Name\Jim St. John\Knights of Columbus State Deputy Jim St. John said  "We've found through research that 70 to 80 percent of the women who are thinking about abortions and see an image of a baby on an ultrasound will change their minds."

The ultrasound machine and accessories are worth $35,000.

The Knights of Columbus will donate four more ultrasounds to other pregnancy centers around the state soon.
