JACKSON—On Tuesday, April 12, Father Diosmar Natad, of St. Mary Mother of God Church, blessed a new ultrasound machine at the Butts County Pregnancy Resource Center, along with members of the Knights of Columbus Danny McMichael Council 12984, staff and volunteers.
The arrival of the ultrasound machine, and its associated capabilities, marks the end of a long campaign to transition the Butts County Pregnancy Resource Center to a pregnancy medical clinic. With the purchase of the ultrasound, the clinic, located at 153 Dempsey Ave., Jackson, will be considered a medical clinic with its first medical services being to diagnose pregnancy using limited obstetric ultrasound. In addition, the center will offer support to nearby counties.
The ultrasound program relies on the national Knights of Columbus organization to match money raised to purchase an ultrasound machine by the local Knights council, businesses and community members.
