“Carolyn”--The Pro-Life Billboard Truck
If you want to acquire a billboard truck for your pro-life ministry, we would be happy to advise you on how to go forward. "Carolyn" the pro-life billboard truck has been vital in the outreach of Pro-Life Waco. The truck has been named “Carolyn” after Carolyn Knowles, the grandmother of the pro-life movement in Waco. "Carolyn" has become our logo in the public square.
We began 2009 with the wild idea. Our dream was to have a “box truck” that Pro-Life Waco could use as a mobile billboard and for storage of our of signs, banners, and crosses. We put out the word that we wanted a truck and were praying that somehow a truck would be donated to us.
Our prayers were answered. Carolyn has protested at the Planned Parenthood abortuary since its beginning in 1994 to its closing in 2013.
The truck was first displayed at the March 2009 Second Sunday Pro-Life Gathering at St. Mary’s Parish Hall.
July 15, 2009 was the date for the 20th Annual Nobody’s Fool sex promotion conference of Planned Parenthood Waco. As in past years, dozens of pro-lifers protest the event. However, 2009 brought something new. “Carolyn” with billboard truck was parked strategically so the all going into Nobody’s Fool could not miss her.
The truck is driven out to send powerful pro-life messages on many occasions including each monthly Life Chain, all hours of operation of Planned Parenthood Waco at 1211 Ross Avenue, 40 Days for Life, and the annual fundraising banquet of Planned Parenthood Austin. We also park the truck at busy intersections. Our billboard truck attracts more attention that an actual billboard.
