With the striking down of Roe v. Wade by the Supreme Court last month, many Christians in the pro-life camp feel that a victory has taken place regarding the dignity of life.
There’s been quite the battle between the two camps ever since, especially in Washington D.C., with reports of President Biden using an executive order to try to appease the pro-choice camp.
It was back in the late 1960s when crisis pregnancy centers came into existence.
They are faith-based, pro-life, non-profit organizations that cater to specific communities, typically providing items such as pregnancy testing, prenatal education, parenting classes, baby clothes, medical assistance, baby formula, and other resources for free or at low cost.
As of 2021, there were roughly 3,000 pregnancy centers nationwide.
The one thing many of them don’t have that is highly beneficial is an ultrasound machine. That’s where Benjamin and Kristen Watson have decided to get involved.
The couple decided to work in partnership with the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission and Psalm 139 Project (under the umbrella of the Southern Baptist Convention), to provide an ultrasound machine for the Coweta Pregnancy Services in Newnan, Georgia.
The couple told the Baptist Press that, “After seeing our preborn children through ultrasound technology, we knew we wanted to provide this life-affirming opportunity to other expecting mothers and fathers.”
“Benjamin and Kirsten Watson are friends as well as pro-life allies, and I’m so thankful they continue to partner with us in this work,” Elizabeth Graham, vice president of Operations and Life Initiatives for the ERLC said in a written statement to the Baptist Press.
So grateful for @BenjaminSWatson and his wife Kirsten. They have partnered with the Psalm 139 project to place multiple machines in pregnancy clinics across the country. Countless women in crisis have and will continue to be served. #StandforLife #Psalm139 @ERLC https://t.co/n43No7rtGu pic.twitter.com/0qADY8uWMe

The couple has partnered with the Psalm 139 project multiple times to place ultrasound technology in pregnancy centers across the country.
The Watsons have a TV series on Liftable in which they discuss topics such as keeping your marital love alive, protecting the unborn, kids, family life, and more.
