John Pisciotta, Director
Pro-Life Waco

It is May of 2017. For many Christians in Central Texas life has a different feel compared to May 2016. This is the first full month in four years during which Planned Parenthood has inflicted the shedding of innocent blood on babies of McLennan and surrounding counties at 1121 Ross Ave. When will we again feel tranquil in our Christian walk? I believe the answer should be: not until the baby killing stops. Pro-Life Waco and this newsletter are dedicated to the proposition that complacency must not resume as long as Waco is a city where a human holocaust takes place each year, each month, each week. I am upset. I have no desire for the feeling to pass. We must respond honorably, persistently, and effectively against the devastating wound ravaging nearby families. Are you in? If yes, you will act on at least one of the initiatives below in the coming week. I ask pro-life fans to consider becoming pro-life foot soldiers.

1. Promote the big rally in Waco on June 10 to family members and church friends.

Sadly, abortion has returned at Planned Parenthood in Waco. Waco is the closest abortion facility for dozens of Texas counties. In addition to Sue Thayer, there will also be a handful of speakers from Texas. The name of the rally is “Stand Up for Women and Babies.” This dynamic rally will inform, touch hearts, and prepare Christians for outreach to challenge the shedding of innocent blood in our community.
To have this impact we want hundreds of people to be with us. My action request is for you to promote the rally to your family, employment, and church friends. For your out-of-town friends, offer to take them to The Silos for al visit with Chip and Joanna Gaines. This flyer describing the rally is accessible as a PDF file at this link.

2. Rise up to the I-35 overpass to proclaim the pro-life message

We should experience good weather and massive traffic Saturday, May 27, from 10 AM to noon at the pedestrian overpass near Baylor. Make this your first overpass outreach. Don’t procrastinate. We have good messages on our signs. However, the strongest message is the personal witness of Central Texans showing with their initiative that Central Texas is pro-life country. Take South 8th street to I-35 and park near Panera Bread (1000 S. 8th Street). There is plenty of street parking available.

3. Spend 10 minutes at Planned Parenthood, 1121 Ross Ave. 

To become a part of the battle against abortion in “your backyard”, I think you just have to see where the abortions are taking place. This is not easy. To make it a little easier, I suggest you go out when there are other foot soldiers on site. This would be 8:30 to 11 a.m. Monday through Thursday. This is the time that assuredly the CareNet staff and sonogram van will be on site. You will be out there in the comfort of being with friends. Pray. Visit. Ask for a tour of the beautiful, lifesaving, soul nurturing SOS van.

4. Donate $19 or more to Pro-Life Waco

I must ask for financial support. PLW has never money at the pace required by the challenges of the 2017 return of the shedding of innocent blood in Waco. The cost of the promotion and rally on June 10 will be substantial. The rental of Heritage Square is $1000. I ask you for a $19 donation because, as near as I can tell, the first day on which pre-born babies lost their lives in 2017 in Waco was April 19. So, your $19 donation will be a direct counter to the deadly initiative of Planned Parenthood. Of course, PLW would accept larger donations. $19 for 12 months would be $228. Perhaps there is an angel receiving this email who will fund the $1000 rental of Heritage Square. $500 would pay most of the cost for our billboards for one month.With past annual budgets of a little less than $40k and no salary payment, Pro-Life Waco delivers maximum impact from your dollars. To battle the second era in Waco of the destruction of babies in the womb, I am hoping PLW annual funding can reach $50k.

Two ways to contribute. Go to On every page you will see a red Support button. Click on the button and follow instructions. You will have the option to make a one-time contribution or monthly contributions to keep fuel in the Pro-Life Waco tank. Additionally, we accept donations the old-fashioned way. You can send a check to Pro-Life Waco, PO Box 7771, Waco, TX 76714. I thank you for considering my request for support of one of the strongest local action ministries in our great state and great country.
