Pro-Life Waco is committed to ending abortion, its damaging effects among women, and promoting chastity.
Voices for Life received a request for prayer and the following information from John Pisciotta, Director of Pro-Life Waco. Included is a schedule of their upcoming prayerful gatherings.
This is John Pisciotta, Director of Pro-Life Waco.
I ask for your fervent prayers for the dozens of moms with babies in the womb scheduled to be aborted this week in Waco. Let us pray for Divine guidance and human intervention to bring wisdom and courage to moms and dads to turn to life and love for their children. Let us pray for the effectiveness of sidewalk counselors who engage abortion-minded moms on these days. Your prayerful presence in the public right away of Planned Parenthood this Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday will show solidarity with lives in peril. Waco and its neighbors carry the cross of being one of the eight abortion cities in the State of Texas.
Second Sunday Gathering was a call to greater witness to our neighbors.
In the Second Sunday program and in this message, PLW Director John Pisciotta presents five initiatives to break out this year into stronger support for babies in the womb and their moms.
#1. The featured speaker for the September 18, 2021 National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children will be the Rev. Clenard Childress who leads New Calvary Baptist Church and his community in public square outreach in Montclair, New Jersey. The event will be held next to 3000 crosses at Rachel’s Park Memorial on 19th Street. Here is Pastor Childress’ 12 minute speech last January at the Walk for Life West Coast.
#2. John Pisciotta pleaded for a dramatic increase in participation in the Rise Up in Waco outreach outside the fence of Planned Parenthood along HWY 6. The next monthly Rise Up in Waco outreach will be from 8 to 10 AM on April 20. We can make a powerful proclamation to morning commuter traffic. The strongest sign for life is your personal witness.
#3. On June 3 (and the 3rd of the month thereafter) we will fly the American flag (half mast, if possible) at our homes and businesses and churches. The 3rd of the month is chosen because the shedding of innocent blood returned to Waco on March 3. With this public square outreach, we will honor the precious little ones lost to abortion and display our concern for babies and moms threatened by Planned Parenthood in Waco.
#4. On April 23rd, Bank of America outreach returns to Waco at the very busy corner of Valley Mills Drive and Waco Drive from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM. With its financial support of Planned Parenthood, BOA is one business enablers of abortion. What will we accomplish by holding up signs to thousands and engage dozens in conversation? David will challenge the Goliath of Bank of America. And, we will communicate to the Waco business community that entanglement with Planned Parenthood is bad business. Thirdly, we will give affirmation and invitation to the vast majority of abortion opponents passing by. In the next newsletter, you will read a touching story of a thankful young mom during our first outreach at Bank of America in September of 2015.
#5. An appeal was made for a leadership team to deliver special event to honor the victims of abortion on Good Friday 2022, as happens in several other cities nationwide. On this day, Planned Parenthood may again abort babies in the womb. Planned parenthood will be there on Good Friday 2022. Will we be there?
Those attending the Second Sunday Gathering were challenged to be a part of one public square outreach event each month if they had been participating in none. Those already active each month were asked to add one or two to their already dedicated outreach.
