Pro-life groups takes abortion outreach to major highway overpasses in two states
Two pro-life groups have organized an all day outreaches to expose abortion and Planned Parenthood by planning to place their messages off a busy interstates.
The “dusk to dawn overpass demonstration” is the brainchild of Pro-life Waco director, Johns Pisciotta.
Pisciotta said the first overpass outreach began in Waco on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade this past January 22nd and has since inspired others to schedule similar events in other cities.
Since the release of Center for Medical Progress videos revealing Planned Parenthood’s baby parts harvesting operation, Pisciotta has also been busy calling for Bank of America to end their matching donation program for employees who give to Planned Parenthood.
In addition to matching donations, an Independent audit on Planned Parenthood Federation of America published December 5, 2014 by KPMG, revealed that PPFA holds a long term debt balance for revenue bonds purchased by Bank of America in New York. The proceeds of the bonds were utilized for PPFA’s New York office space. The loan amount was $30,000,000.
“We know national Bank of America management is considering their predicament. We hope they will make a decision to break with Planned Parenthood. If not, they can simply endure the bad publicity and we can continue to shine the light on the horrific actions of Planned Parenthood,” Pisciotta told supporters on his Hometown Pro-life Action page on Facebook.
In Tuesday’s first ever dusk to dawn overpass event, Pisciotta hopes to engage over 100,000 travelers on I35 with the message that abortion kills children and Planned Parenthood must be defunded.
“What we’ve decided is that we have to be the media in our signs, in our person, in our words,” he said.
Messages the group will display include: Abortion is never okay, #PPSellsBabyParts, Defund Planned Parenthood.
Pisciotta said that he also plans to have his latest billboard truck with the message:
“Babies are for kissing. Not killing and harvesting for profit.”
In New Mexico, the group, Protest ABQ is also planning an outreach to shed truth to motorists commuting on I25 in Albuquerque.
“Protest ABQ stands in solidarity with Pro-Life Waco and other groups who are determined to shed light on pre-born child killing in the public square,” said organizer Bud Shaver.
Protest ABQ has done these events in the past, but is planning to be at their location all day to coincide with the Waco demonstration.
“It is our hope that thousands will see the truth and have a change of heart as a result of our overpass protests on September 22nd,” Shaver added.
Pisciotta called the September 22nd 7am to 7pm event an “unprecedented event for unprecedented times.
“We’re going to be out there as long as the sun is shining. We do not see this as a Waco event, we see this as a Texas and even Oklahoma event. You can bring your children, all the signs will be G-rated and the area is very secure.”
“You can never know the full impact of an event like this,” Pisciotta added stating he is hopeful they will persuade mothers who may be considering abortion to choose life.
The Waco event will take place at the I35 pedestrian overpass near Baylor University, in Waco. You can get more information by contacting Pro-life Waco at firstname.lastname@example.org or join the group’s events page on Facebook.
Protest ABQ is planning to conduct their outreach off I25 in Albuquerque at 6000 Brentwood Ln. NE.
