News for Knights of Columbus
VOLUME 40 │ NUMBER 4 │JAN. 25, 2021
Knights of Columbus from across the United States joined other pro-life advocates Jan. 21 in Washington, D.C., to defend the rights of unborn children at a historic March for Life. Only a few days before, the Order placed its 1,500th ultrasound machine in a pregnancy resource center, a major milestone for the Ultrasound Initiative, which has helped countless women choose life since the program began in 2009.
Knights March for LifeSupreme Knight Patrick Kelly, participating in the March for Life for the first time as leader of the Knights, expressed his support for the tens of thousands of people who took part in the annual demonstration. The march occurred as the Supreme Court weighs Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the most significant challenge in many years to Roe v. Wade, the landmark case that legalized abortion in all 50 states in 1973. READ MORE• View photos from the March for Life and related events on our news hub.• A brief video highlighting the Knights of Columbus Ultrasound Initiative premiered at the March for Life Rose Dinner. Click here to watch the video.

Support Our Culture of Life FundThe pro-life work of the Order is due in large part to the efforts of individual Knights and councils, especially in raising funds for ultrasound machines. The Supreme Council is able to assist in this work thanks to donations to the Culture of Life Fund. Individuals and councils, especially those without a need in their immediate community, can help place machines elsewhere by donating to the fund. MAKE A DONATION TODAY
