To the Catholic Sentinel:
The Astoria Pregnancy Resource Center Door of Hope has been serving our area for years, thanks to the devotion of staff, volunteers, and many faith communities. This center provides hope for those women and men who are struggling with the question of choosing life vs abortion.
This center is open to all without charges, serves all faiths, non faiths, and ethnic groups.
Recently the Knights of Columbus councils in Southwest Washington and Northwest Oregon with support from many communities partnered with the Supreme (National) Knights of Columbus Council and purchased an advanced Ultra-Sound machine and HD monitor for the Astoria pregnancy center which can detect early life. Experience shows that when women can see life, they will likely choose life and not abortion.
Providing an advanced tool to assist women and not condemn women in their life decisions is indeed lighting a candle, not cursing the darkness.
