Knights of Columbus Archbishop Elder Council 1195 Pro-Life Challenge Fall 2010
As we approach the 2010 40 Days For Life initiative (September 22 – October 31), we know that the sanctity of human life – from conception to natural death – is under attack in our country like never before. This is particularly true for women who are pre-abortive (considering an abortion) and post-abortive (those experiencing the pain of loss after an abortion). The choice these women are about to make, or have made, will have a profound effect on them for life and will shape how they view themselves and their relationships with family, friends, and the Lord.
The Women’s Center for Health, Hope, and Healing, Inc. – led by Dr. Joe Gubasta – is a leading provider of services to these women here in Cincinnati. Located at 3228 Jefferson Ave. (across the street from the Women’s Med+ Center abortuary) and in business since 2004, Joe provides a wide spectrum of services beyond those of the traditional pregnancy center. While he provides counseling and ultrasounds that have effectively prevented abortions (500 confirmed births since 2004), his outreach to women impacted by abortion does not stop there.
He has developed an approach to helping post-abortive women resolve the physical, emotional, and spiritual scars that come with the loss of a baby. This approach helps these women to become pro-life advocates for others in their community considering the abortion decision. Ultimately, Joe believes that the path toward ending abortion will depend on women coming together and speaking out with a collective voice about the evil of abortion and the destruction that it has caused in their lives.
The Archbishop Elder Council is proud to support life during these turbulent times! We are challenging all Cincinnati Knights of Columbus chapters to join us in this fight! Our goal is to raise a minimum of $6000 to help the Women’s Center for Health, Hope, and Healing, Inc. continue its good work in the community. The Archbishop Elder council is prepared to match dollar-for-dollar all donations up to $3000 for a total of $6000 pledged. Any funds over and above the $3000 will be donated to the Women’s Center for Health, Hope, and Healing, Inc. as well. Please note that Joe’s organization has 501(c)(3) designation as tax-exempt.
This challenge continues thru Nov. 15. Please solicit donations in the name of this important pro-life cause in your home parishes. Checks should be made out to Women’s Center for Health, Hope, and Healing, Inc. and can be sent directly to Joe at: Women’s Center for Health, Hope, and Healing, 3228 Jefferson, Cincinnati, OH 45220.
Please note on your donation "K of C Challenge".
Whether or not your council is able to help financially, we ask for your ongoing prayers for expectant mothers, the unborn, the Pro-Life movement, and the success of this initiative.

"When the time comes as it surely will, when we face that awesome moment, the final judgment, I've often thought, as Fulton Sheen wrote, that it is a terrible moment of loneliness. You have no advocates, you are there alone standing before God and a terror will rip through your soul like nothing you can imagine. But I really think that those in the pro-life movement will not be alone. I think there will be a chorus of voices that have never been heard in this world but are heard beautifully and clearly in the next world and they will plead for everyone who has been in this movement. They will say to God, "Spare him because he loved us," and God will look at you and say not, "Did you succeed?" but "Did you try?"--Congressman Henry Hyde
