Van equipped with ultrasound saves unborn lives

By Sarah Terzo

“We average two or three turnarounds per day. We average about 800 saves a year just at the mobile facility.” — Pro-Lifer Chris Slattery, president of EMC Frontline.

EMC Frontline Pregnancy Centers has a van equipped with ultrasound machines. Volunteers park in front of abortion clinics and attempt to reach abortion minded women.

Jaboy Rivera is one such success story. She said that she owes her child’s life to Slattery’s mobile-ultrasound unit. Scheduled for an abortion, she had a pregnancy test and ultrasound on the bus and learned that she was 15 weeks pregnant. Her boyfriend wanted her to have an abortion.

“If I wouldn’t have seen the sonogram and my baby moving, I would have done it.  I thank those with the bus for not letting me do it. I give thanks that I didn’t do it.”
