Bank of America Outreach Returns to Waco

Pro-Life Waco is resuming their monthly Bank of America Outreach this Friday, April 23rd. For those who don’t know, Bank of America is a staunch supporter of Planned Parenthood. We encourage everyone to join in this protest.  If you are not able to physically attend or live in other areas in the country, a link is provided below with information on how you can participate. 

 

Bank of America

 

This is the return of monthly Bank of America outreach that occurred in Waco during 2015-16. We return to the sidewalks to send shock waves through the BOA branch on Valley Mills Dr on Friday, April 23.

ProtestBOA


WHY BANK OF AMERICA? 1. BOA is a leading national Planned Parenthood supporter/enabler. 2. The Central Texas business community should know that supporting Planned Parenthood is very BAD BUSINESS. 3. We will affirms and invite our pro-life neighbors while challenging those who support abortion. We can change the business and personal culture of Central Texas!


WHERE TO PARK: Emerson Drive would be good. This street runs between Uncle Dan’s BBQ and Harold Waite Restaurant.


For questions, including how to start BOA outreach in your hometown, contact John Pisciotta (254-644-0407 or prolifewaco@gmail.com).

WACO ACTION ALERT: PLW Director Pleads for an Escalation of Pro-Life Outreach with Return of Abortion in Waco

Pro-Life Waco is committed to ending abortion, its damaging effects among women, and promoting chastity.  

Pro Life Waco Outreach for the Gospel of Life

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.

NOTE. You can always find the schedule of the current month’s outreach events at the home page of www.prolifewaco.com Over pass outreach is happening this Thursday.  Sidewalk Counseling Training is this Saturday. Click on the link and get the details.

March 3, 2021 – A Dark and Tragic Day in Waco

From John Pisciotta of Pro-Life Waco

With a heavy heart, I announce that, after nearly a year, the shedding of innocent blood has resumed in Waco.  The parking lot was busy. And moms with babies in the womb entered the abortion wing of Planned Parenthood Waco.  Abortion will continue this week. And then on Wed/Thurs/Friday of alternating weeks. Nicola Louise Moore of Massachusetts continues as the ‘physician” killing babies in the womb. I snapped this photo of her on Thursday morning. Lord have mercy.

Moore

Waco has now rejoined seven other Texas cities with facilities dedicated to killing preborn babies Pro-Life Waco has elevated outreach to preborn babies and moms in 2020. And we will elevate even more in 2021 and as long as we have this cross to bear.  Your sacrifice and discipleship are needed to defend the precious treasures Jesus loves so much.  We can look to our right and to our left for those engaged in the battle.  However, you and I are called to step forward with dedication, and with joy, serving this noble cause. WE WILL NEVER ACCEPT THIS ABOMINATION WITHIN OUR COMMUNITY!

Remembering Lives Lost and Hearts Broken in Waco, Texas

Pro-Life Waco is sponsoring an ad in the Waco Tribune.  You can find more information on how to be a part of this initiative below.   Thank you to John Pisciotta of Pro-Life Waco for forwarding information on this project. 

AdRoe Day ad in Waco Trib: 410 and working hard.

WacoWe are now two/thirds the way along the path to 600 households publicly declaring their lament for the tragic Roe v Wade decision imposed on January 22, 1973.

This Pro-Life Waco initiative is unique and important. The only other city in the USA that will have a Roe Day “signature ad” is Reno, Nevada.

Signing up is easy for you and your friends. Just provide your household name the way you want it in the ad and donate $5 – $50 to Pro-Life Waco. Mail to Pro-Life Waco at 4200 Grim Avenue, Waco, TX  76710.
Or you can do this online at www.prolifewaco.comClick on the Support Us button located on the bottom/right of your screen.

You can see and print copies of the flyer/signup form here. 
Ways you can help through our final sign up Day of January 15:

1. Having your household signed on would be a blessing. Wherever you live, you can join with others defending preborn babies, moms and families.

2. Sundays Jan. 3 and 10 and Wednesdays Jan. 6 & 13 are worship days before our January 15 cutoff for adding names. You can print copies of the flyer/form to share with your friends. If some of your friends commit “on the spot,” you can take their checks and forms and return to me at 4200 Grim Ave, Waco 76710. My mail has a drop slot into my home.

3. Forward or share this message to your friends. Hopefully, others will learn about the Roe Ad campaign from multiple sources.

The Roe Day Proclamation part of the ad will look like the picture above.  

 

Blessing Bag Stuffing to Support Sidewalk Counseling in Waco, Texas

Sidewalk counselors in Waco, Texas received ‘blessing bags’ to offer to women entering the Planned Parenthood in Waco, Texas prepared by Republican County Women last month .  Please see report from John Pisciotta of Pro-Life Waco below. 

Under the leadership of Ellen Stanizewski, an important feature of sidewalk counseling at Planned Parenthood Waco is offering Blessing Bags to women as they drive or ride in. The Blessing Bags include a small stuffed animal, small gifts, fliers on life matters, and directions to Care Net Pregnancy Center and other support.

Abortion-minded moms and other clients have taken over 1,000 Blessing Bags. The photos are of morning gathering on November 13 to assemble 250 Blessing Bags to take us into 2021. The location was the headquarters of the Republican Party of McLennan County. Republican County Women provided most of the person-power for this productive and joyful morning.

Full-Page ad in Waco Trib on Roe Day 2021

The following is from John Pisciotta of Pro-Life Waco

Last week, I wrote that I would have a big announcement this week.  Here goes!  Pro-Life Waco will organize a full-page Waco Tribune-Herald ad for January 22, 2021 to honor those killed in the unspeakable injustice of abortion unleashed by the Roe V Wade court decision in 1973. PLW seeks 500-600 names affirming the message of the ad.

In addition to honoring the dead we seek to mobilize life defenders to bring an end to abortion in our city. This will be the only ad of its kind in Texas, perhaps in the entire country.  If the Democrats of McLennan county can deliver a full-page ad (October 25 with 300 names) calling for the election of Biden-Harris, surely, we can do this in solidarity with babies, moms, and families.  You can see the layout of the ad and more explanation by clicking here. 
 
You will also find two ways that you as an individual or a family can be included in this historic proclamation. One way is to send $5 to $50 to Pro-Life Waco (4200 Grim Ave, Waco 76710) and the way you want your household name to appear on the ad. You can also  go online at www.prolifewaco.com. Click on the “Support Us” button and go from there.

Funds received will be applied to the $3700 cost of the ad. Any surplus will be applied to PLW outreach in 2021. If contributions do not cover the cost, PLW will fill in the gap.

Also, I am seeking “Captains” for this campaign. This is a dedicated foot soldier who will try to sign up 10 or more friends and relatives. Possibly your Sunday School class. Please respond to this email and let me know if you will be a captain.

If you are a recipient of this message, you can be included in the ad even if you do not live in Central Texas.

Let’s not keep our light under a bushel basket.  Let our light shine brightly throughout Central Texas, our state, and our country.

Waco Joins 120 cities in National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children on September 12th

The following is fromJohn Pisciotta of Pro-Life Waco. Waco pro-life residents are encouraged to attend and join in prayer in memory of the children of the womb lost through abortion.  

 

Less than two weeks away. I am so eager to see you there. We will have a tent and the weather is getting better. With a backdrop of 4,000 white crosses and the Tomb of the Unknown Baby, the program will be from 9 to 10:30 AM. Waco is one of 55 memorial sites nationwide where an aborted baby has been interred. You will love our keynote speaker Heather Hobbs of Save The 1 ministries. The title of her message will be “Don’t be deceived. She is a child no matter how she was conceived.” Heather resisted pressure to abort three of her four children because the pregnancies were “hard cases.”

Local speakers will be Deborah McGregor (CareNet), Aine Fitzgerald (40 Days for Life) John Pisciotta (Pro-Life Waco), and Lynn Rasberry with a personal testimony. You will learn how you can incorporate defending babies in the womb into your Christian walk. Among the 60 million babies lost to abortion in America are 20,000 at Planned Parenthood in Waco. Let’s honor these precious ones lost to abortion and defend their brothers and sisters threatened in our community in 2020.
