The following is from John Pisciotta, Director of Pro-Life Waco, regarding the memorial service held this past Saturday in Waco, Texas.
Waco is one of just 40 American cities where the remains of babies lost to abortion are interred. The name of the burial site is Tomb of the Unknown Baby.
Thanks to Jennifer Nolan, Tom Harrison, and Nancy Harrison for decorating the Rachel’s Park Memorial for the weekend of September 14 and 15. Wolf Nursery donated fresh flowers. Pro-Life Waco used radio and newspaper ads to invite everyone to come out and pray at the park.
We particularly invited moms and dads seeking God’s forgiveness and healing from abortion experiences. The park features 4,000 small crosses, a large cross dominating the site, the Tomb of the Unknown Baby, and a Wall of Remembrance where babies lost to abortion can be memorialized with small plaques.
When you are in Central Texas, I encourage you to visit Rachel’s Park Memorial. The address is 4720 N. 19th Street, virtually across the street from McLennan Community College. The memorial site was created by the Rusty Thomas family.
Pro-Life Waco is a local community-based organization with collaborative relationships with regional and national pro-life affiliations.
