Jesus said to his disciples, “Is a lamp brought in to be placed under a bushel basket or under a bed, and not to be placed on a lampstand? Mark 4:21
1. We know the days when babies will die in Waco
We must faithfully response to the difficult realities in our community. Earlier this month, we learned the identity of the Waco Planned Parenthood abortionist: Nicola Louise Moore, the circuit-rider abortionist from Cambridge, Massachusetts. Now Planned Parenthood has revealed on its web site the hours that abortionist Moore will be in Waco to extinguish the defenseless lives of Texas babies. As you see below abortion days will be Wednesday, Thursday, Friday. This tragic news is diminished slightly by the fact that the schedule is on alternating weeks.
Let’s seize the opportunity and enjoy being with our friends. Just drive to the end of South 8th Street and be a part of the Interstate 35 pedestrian overpass outreach. Saturday, July 29, from 10 AM to noon at the overpass near Baylor. We have strong G-rated messages on our signs. However, the strongest message is our personal witness showing that Waco and Texas stand up for innocent preborn life and I-35 traveler should too. Park near Panera Bread (1000 S. 8th Street). There is plenty of street parking available.

5. JP’s Letter to the Editor of the Waco Tribune
Today I sent a Letter to the Editor of the Waco Tribune-Herald with a focus of Cecile Richards and making the case that Planned Parenthood should not receive any government financial support. The letter is below. You may or may not know that Cecile, the nearly $1 million a year CEO of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, was born in Waco, Texas at Hillcrest Hospital on July 15, 1957. Cecile Richards is 60 years old. Her mother, former Gov. Ann Richards, chose life for Cecile. You may also know that Cecile Richards accepted her first three children into her family. However, she and her husband decided to provide "abortion care" to their fourth child.
“If you’re not pissing someone off, you’re probably not doing your job.” These words were expressed by which of the following?
A. A Republican member of the U.S. House of Representatives.
B. An all-pro middle linebacker in the NFL.
C. An MSNBC television program host.
D. An executive of a healthcare organization.
The correct answer is “D.” The person was not the CEO of the Waco-based Family Health Center. Rather these words came from Waco-born Cecile Richards, the CEO of Planned Parenthood Federation of America. The remark was quoted in an interview with the liberal women’s blog, The Cut.
The quote indicated that Planned Parenthood is something other than a healthcare organization. You would be shocked if the CEO of the Family Health Center or Providence Hospital spoke this way to the public.
What gives? Among other things, Planned Parenthood’s mission is social transformation. Using its 501c4 political action status, Planned Parenthood is out to convince citizens of such ideas as “abortion on demand is social justice” and “gender is not determined by genetics or genitals.”
This is one more reason why Planned Parenthood should not receive a dime of government funding. Planned Parenthood is truly an arm of the Democratic Party. When Planned Parenthood the organization can reach out to philanthropists, such as Bill Gates and Warren Buffet, who have and will step up to support the Planned Parenthood view of human reality and social justice.
Pro-Life Waco is a local community-based organization with collaborative relationships with regional and national pro-life affiliations. Pro-Life Waco is committed to ending abortion, its damaging effects among women, and promoting chastity. For more information on Pro-Life Waco, please use this link.
