Who We Are
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.
What is urgently called for is a general mobilization of consciences at the grassroots level within the Waco-McLennan County area. Our people need a united ethical effort to activate a great campaign in support of life. All together, we must build a new culture of life; new, because it will be able to confront and solve today’s unprecedented problems affecting human life; new, because it will be adopted with deeper and more dynamic conviction by all Christians; new, because it will be capable of bringing about a serious and courageous cultural dialogue among all people in God’s kingdom of heaven on earth.
We have been serving the Waco-McLennan County community for over two decades.
How can we get our pro-life viewpoints out at no costs to thousands of our allies as well as to those who have not yet accepted the truth of the Gospel of Life? We believe that, as Christians, we must follow God's biblical call to uphold the sanctity of EVERY human life from conception to natural death. We publish pro-life resources, articles, brochures and video training products to educate individuals and groups who feel called to life-affirming ministry, education and activism. Pro-Life Waco is a non-profit and we appreciate your donations to our organization. Pro-Life Waco is all-volunteer. The full amount of your donations go to ministry.
Community participation is growing at a steady pace. With this growth, we have been able to accomplish more, and have a larger impact upon our community. We welcome you with open arms. Please inquire today about how you can become a cherished part of our faith based family.
