Members of the Livermore Knights of Columbus went on a road trip to celebrate their latest charitable work: they visited the Support Circle Pregnancy Clinic in Oakland for a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new ultrasound machine they donated.

Support Circle, founded in 1984, is a medical clinic dedicated to providing time, space and support to women in unintended pregnancies. It offers women a safe place to make an informed decision about their pregnancy. All services are offered at no cost to patients.

The donation is part of the Knights of Columbus Pro-Life Program which seeks to put an end to abortion and promote a culture of life. The goal is to save lives and help women choose life by giving them the opportunity to view their unborn children on ultrasound machines at pro-life pregnancy centers.

Staff at Support Circle gave the Knights a tour of the clinic and showed them the features of the new machine, along with some images that it had already taken.

The Knights of Columbus, a Catholic fraternal organization, is devoted to works of charity. They raise funds through various community events and donate the net proceeds to worthy causes, mostly in Livermore and the Tri-Valley region.
