Pro-life victory celebration held in Waco on December 14.

The pro-life community of Central Texas came together for a Celebration of 2013 Pro-Life Victories the morning of December 14 at Church of the Open Door.
The two-hour program and meal, sponsored by Pro-Life Waco, were a time of celebration and rededication. The celebration was for the closing of the Planned Parenthood Waco abortion facility and the end to the Nobody’s Fool youth conference that promoted “anything goes” sex for children.
Nobody’s Fool was launched in 1989 and abortions began in Waco in 1994. Their closures followed two decades of diverse and complementary pro-life ministries—from monthly Life Chain demonstrations on Valley Mills Drive to pregnancy support from CareNet of Central Texas. Before the Planned Parenthood abortion facility closed in August, nearly 20,000 innocent lives were lost to abortion.
Of course, God granted many other eternal victories throughout the years—such as each pregnant woman who turned from Planned Parenthood and chose life for her baby.
The fourteen “celebration” speakers were from Waco, around Texas, and Stafford, Virginia. Jim Sedlak of American Life League came from Virginia. Texas speakers included Molly White (Women for Life International), Joe Pojman (Texas Alliance for Life), and Monica Cline (former instructor at Nobody’s Fool). Among the local speakers were Deborah McGregor (CareNet Central Texas), Rusty Thomas (Elijah Ministries) and John Pisciotta (Pro-Life Waco).
A 10-year-old girl delivered pledges of allegiance to the American and Christian flags. By the grace of God and the sidewalk counseling of Carolyn Knowles, her mom turned from Planned Parenthood and to a choice for life for this beautiful child of God.
Ruby McCray ended the celebration with a rousing rendition of Amazing Grace.
Pastor Ronnie Holmes and members of Church of the Open Door contributed by ushering, baby sitting and much more. Members of Knights of Columbus Council #1358 served the delicious BBQ meal.
Pro-life outreach continues in Waco. Other than abortion, Planned Parenthood is fully open for business in Waco. Planned Parenthood will continue to counsel toward abortions in Austin and Dallas, promote birth control to children without parental consent, profit from STD treatments, and advocate for full acceptance of sex as recreation. The pro-life alliance in Central Texas will continue pro-life outreach until Planned Parenthood is close in Waco.
