MISSOURI KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS
MEET LIFE CAMPAIGN
Would you give $50 to save the life of a baby? Of course each of us would, and now you have that chance. At the Annual Organizational meeting of the Missouri State Council Knights of Columbus in July of 2011, the Missouri State Council announced a bold initiative with a goal of reducing the number of abortions by Missouri residents by 50% by the end of 2016.
The Meet Life Campaign expands the Ultrasound Initiative begun by the Supreme Council in 2009, and places ultrasound machines in pregnancy resource centers in Missouri offering women a free ultrasound image of their unborn child and giving them the opportunity to choose life for their child. To date, Missouri Knights have placed 34 machines across the State. In the 2013 calendar year more than 1,600 babies were saved from abortion as a direct result of the Meet Life Campaign.
This exciting campaign uses the expertise of In His Image Ultrasound to target appropriate centers for placement of these machines, and also includes the expertise of Vitae Foundation to develop a multimedia campaign to get the message to women who are at risk of choosing an abortion.
The State Council has asked each Council to pledge $50 per member over five years to accomplish this goal. Councils can ask their members to contribute or host fundraisers to meet this pledge. Councils are also encouraged to conduct Baby Bottle Campaigns in their Parishes to raise funds for this important effort.
This is an exciting and wonderful opportunity to bring about a culture of life and the Knights of Columbus are leading the way. Please support this most important campaign.
