Down the road a bit is Elgin’s TLC Pregnancy Services.

The Pro-Life organization is holding a Walk for Moms & Babies on Sept. 20, hoping to raiser $40,000.

TLC Pregnancy Services is a pregnancy care center which has been serving Elgin and surrounding communities since 1996.

Free medical, emotional, spiritual and practical support is provided to hundreds of moms and children each month.

Funds raised through The Walk for Moms & Babies will provide funds for TLC Pregnancy Services to continue offering FREE medical and support services to local women, men and children throughout the year.

This the group that had to file a Federal lawsuit against the City of Elgin to operate its mobile ultrasound bus within sight of Larkin High School on the city’s west side.

The unit was donated by the late Jack Roeser.

It is but one of his contributions to the Pro-Life cause.

On Saturday I found this ultrasound bus parked in Otto Engineering’s corner parking lot. (This is not the photo I took that day.)

Closer to home and now is the McHenry County Pro-Life Pig Roast from 1-4 on Sunday at Irene Napier’s farm at 5706 Valley View Road in Crystal Lake. The cost is $40 a piece and $75 per couple.
