Top 10 Events of the Year
Pro-Life Waco Year in Review 2021
The year began with a “first in Texas” Roe Day newspaper ad with hundreds of household signatures. Near the end of the year another “first in Texas” was a full-page ad in October 17 created by pastors in Greater Waco. In between were thousands of hours of dedicated life defender outreach. Doug (Abby) Johnson was a speaker at Second Sunday. Crawford became a Sanctuary City. Engagement with international media. Rise UP in Waco outreach at PP. Rev. Clenard Childress was keynote for National Day of Remembrance. Billboards and yard signs everywhere. Counter-protest to pro-abortion rally. And a whole lot more.
Pro-Life Waco Year in Review 2020--First 3 Quarters
2020 began with expectation of orderly expansion of our "public square engagement." That changed quickly in with Covid. We pivoted strongly to creative use of Carolyn the billboard truck, billboards of all sizes, and yard signs. By September, PLW shifted back toward normal with a rally for National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children, Second Sunday Luncheon Gathering, Sidewalk Counseling, etc.
Pro-Life Waco Year in Review 2019
We focus on "public square engagement." Highlights: billboards everywhere, 96 pastors sign on to WacoTrib ad supporting 40 Days for Life, Life Chain, pedestrian overpass outreach, Unplanned shown at 50 churches, and more.
PLW Year in Review 2018
Read about so much that happen in Waco during the first full year of abortion of the precious pre-born babies at 700 W HWY 6 -- the new Waco branch of Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas.
PLW Year in Review 2017
2017 was a difficult and challenging year. In January, we learned that Planned Parenthood obtained a Texas license to resume abortions in Waco. Regrettably, in May abortions did resume. To compound the devastation, we found out in November that Planned Parenthood had occupied a newly constructed facility at 700 W Highway 6. In December, not long before Christmas, the shedding of innocent blood began at this location. We challenged the Culture of Death in many and dynamic ways. Find out all about it in our Year in Review.
