BONIFAY — The Knights of Columbus Council 10513, Infant of Prague, presented the West Florida Pregnancy and Family Center with a donation of $5,000 on March 27.

“The Knights of Columbus are very much a supporter of the Pro Life movement from the very beginning,” said Grand Knight Council 10513 of KoC Mike DeRuntz. “Organizations like the West Florida Pregnancy and Family Center are just so greatly appreciated.”

The WFPFC is a part of the West Florida Baptist Association to provide free services to expecting mothers.

Director of WFPFC Mary Ann Rockburn updated them on the current progress of the WFPRC.

“We’ve had 22 clients this year, totaling 944; five came to salvation, totaling 118; 24 new clients have Pre-Natal/Parenting, totaling 474; 19 new clients have taken Bible Classes, totaling 394; four babies have been born this year and there are nine babies due,” said Rockburn. “We have held 174 classes this year and have helped 215 clients in one way or another and we’ve got a hard fight before us as we’ve approached the 40th anniversary since abortion was legalized. We’ve lost over 55 million babies to abortion during this time, 1.2 to 1.4 babies are aborted every year in the United States and in our state alone we lose 224 babies a day to the 69 abortion clinics we have.”

Rockburn said that it is because of these statistics that it is up to local organizations such as the West Florida Baptist Association to provide free services so that young people don’t feel forced to abort due to rejection or because they are unassisted.

The Bonifay Center is located 412 East North St. and is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesdays, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursdays and classes are available from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesdays. For more information contact the Bonifay Center at 547-5213 or email at westflpregandfamily@earthlink.net.
