Abortion Pill Reversal; Call for Help

The following is from an email sent by Dr. Monique Ruberu sent last evening.

Today I received a text from Dominic who was praying outside PP… he had encountered a woman who was headed in to abort. This mom was crying, so sad but so scared. She was in a very tough situation and Dom needed support. His shift was almost over and he didn’t want to leave the sidewalk empty in case she came out seeking help. 


Thanks be to God Bill showed up to relieve him and continue the prayer for this woman in particular. 


A few minutes ago I received a call from the APR hotline. I called the woman who took an abortion pill at 11 am at 12th and Locust today! 
I asked her if she encountered Dom on the way in and she said “yes”

I told her that Dom and I had been praying for her today and we were so happy she called!

now I ask each of you to pray for this little 9 week baby! Pray that she takes the progesterone on time and that the baby is saved from abortion. 

KNOW that without Dom and Bill covering these hours today this girl likely would never have known that REVERSAL was an option. 

PRAISE GOD !!!! And thank you to all of you who show up and have chosen your hours to be present!!!

Here are the remaining hours for the 1st week!!

Students Deliver First-ever National Pro-Life Sidewalk Day

The following is from  the Newsletter of Pro-life Waco sent out by John Pisciotta

 

College and high school Students for Life chapters in Waco delivered a strong outreach at local Planned Parenthood in collaboration with National Pro-Life Generation Sidewalk Day.

Close to 20 students and supporters from Care Net Pregnancy Center, 40 Days for Life Waco, and Pro-Life Waco were on board for this powerful event. The location of PP in Waco was along the very busy artery of State Highway 6. So, this event was truly in the public square and shined light on the darkness of Planned Parenthood.

The time and locations were 9-11 AM Saturday August 1 at 700 W HWY 6.  The event was organized by Sarah Zarr, Texas Regional Director of Students for Life of America and Megan Roos of McLennan Community College. More dynamic outreach is coming from students of the greater Waco area.

August To-Do List

Hard to believe that it is August, and we’re more than half way through the summer.

The 8th month of the year can serve as a time to get in much needed family vacation before school is back in session. Sadly, the pandemic has put everyone’s plans on hold. Some are still unsure due to the unprecedented times.

The good news is Voices for Life has a to-do list throughout the month that can help you channel your Covid-19 frustrations in helping to advance the pro-life message. This list is applicable for your daily pro-life conviction.

  1. See Trump Card

It should come as no surprise that Dinesh D’Sousa, an immigrant of India, is not done defending the core principles of America. For the last eight years, he has been on the New York Times bestseller’s list, been falsely convicted for fraud, and has produced documentaries that have been game changers. His latest project, “Trump Card” is slated to be released on Friday, August 7th. Due to the temporary closing of movie theaters, you can view the documentary on-demand.

He played a pivotal role in exposing Hillary Clinton’s past which helped Donald Trump become the 45th President of the United States with “Hillary’s America”.

In addition, his most recent book United States of Socialism, is out now. To make your purchase, visit here.

2. Holy Hour/Mass for Life

Many states have masses back in session (with restrictions). Some of the faithful should be encouraged to host a Holy Hour for an end to abortion. St. Teresa of Calcutta once believed that if every Catholic made a weekly Holy Hour, we would see an end to abortion. So what are you waiting for? Even if you can’t bring one to you church, make one on your accordance.

3. Take part in vigils in your community

Connect with your local pro-life coalition and find out about vigil locations and times. Pray with your family, college, or even church group. Create a sign that advertises free help with contact information.

4. Host a pro-life committee meeting in your church

Gather people in your parish or church and discuss ways you can help get the pro-life message to your community all around with another pivotal election approaching.

5. Donate to pro-life charity

Give anything you have to advance many pro-life groups making a difference. Some groups include: Generation Life, The Culture Project, St. Raymond Nonnatus Foundation, Guiding Star, and Susan B Anthony List to name a few.

6. Work for Susan B Anthony List

The Susan B Anthony List is gearing up to help reach out to voters as the 2020 elections are coming very soon. They are hiring in many battleground states. To learn more, visit here.

7. Purchase Stork: Sowing Season

An indie author recently came out with an amazing book that promotes a pro-life message. To order your copy, visit here. It will make an excellent read in your backyard with a cold drink or while you’re catching rays at the beach.

8. Sign up for 40 Days for Life

The 40 Days for Life campaign begins on Wednesday, September 23rd and ends the weekend before the General Election. The spring campaign was interrupted with the pandemic. Now, with many states putting this phenomenon behind, it is time to go all in to save lives, pray for the workers, help moms choose life, and make a difference in your community.

9. Sidewalk Servants

Even though we’re a long way from the next 40 Days for Life campaign, there are babies being murdered every day. Your presence for at least an hour two during the week will make an impact on the abortion industry. Learn more about sidewalk servants here. Consider starting one in your community.

“Abortion in America”

The following is from John Pisciotta, former Director of Pro-Life Waco.  We hope you take the time  to listen to the BBC’s three-part documentary.  John provided links below to the series. 

Abortion in America

“Abortion in America” is the three-part BBC radio documentary broadcast in May of 2018. Interviews were conducted in Texas, Kentucky, and Washington DC in the fall of 2017. Most of Part 2 features Pro-Life Waco and the abortion battle in Waco, Texas. PLW leads the challenge to the 2017 resumption of abortion in Waco by Planned Parenthood. In the first 19 minutes of this audio program, you hear each side delivering their views on abortion–with a minimum of journalistic spin.

The Pro-Life Waco interviewees in order are Lynn Rasberry, Frank Rodriquez, Debby O’Connor, Rev. Ronnie Holmes of Church of the Open Door and John Pisciotta, Director of Pro-Life Waco. Speaking for Planned Parenthood are Waco Director Stephanie Mabry, Rev. Leslie King, pastor of First Presbyterian Church of Waco, and mothers planning abortions for their preborn children.

Here is the link to Part 1: the battle ground in Waco and Texas.  All three 30-minute segments are available here.
