Interstate 35 Overpass Demonstration on Roe Day

It was Cold, Windy, Rainy and a Smashing Success!!




From John Pisciotta, 
Director of Pro-Life Waco

First-ever overpass demonstration in Waco. I did not realize at the time, but the weather was just perfect--absolutely brutal. It was cold, windy, and rainy throughout the demonstration from 11 to 1 PM.

Ten dedicated men and three unwavering and tough ladies were out there. Being out in weather like this multiplied the impact of the messages. Interstate 35, I am told, is the busiest interstate in the country.

Thousands saw the messages. I thank my pastor, Father Joe Geleney, for being with us for a tough and productive experience. I believe we did honor the 57 million aborted baby boys and girls who suffered so much more than we did today.

After experiencing the weather as excruciating, it actually became exhilarating. One interesting facet of our demonstration was that a woman driving from Dallas to Austin turned around to come back to the overpass to greet us and take pictures. I didn’t get a picture of her because I was gone to get some additional bungee cords.

One of our signs was “Honk If You’re Pro-Life.” There was a whole lot of honking. After the demonstration, we enjoyed each other’s company over lunch at George’s fine café. A good time was had by all. We will return to the Waco Interstate 35 pedestrian overpass!!!!
