We strongly believe that it is important to maintain a peaceful, prayerful presence in front of Planned Parenthood's abortion facility. When pro-lifers stand in prayer outside of abortion facilities, we know that, through the grace of God, hearts and minds are changed and lives are saved. This is especially important considering Planned Parenthood's huge new building at 4600 Gulf Freeway. With their expanded facilities, a constant presence of prayer at this abortion supercenter is even more critical.
With the concerns about the coronavirus, we want to make sure everyone that decides to continue to come out to pray spreads themselves out. Please do not touch anyone.
Beginning MONDAY, April 27th, there is a requirement for the next 30 days that individuals in HARRIS COUNTY 10 years of age and older must wear masks or there is $1K fine and possibly jail time. We are very aware that people come out to pray from other neighboring counties, all over the nation and people have joined us in prayer for an end to abortion while they visited from outside of the country. We are also aware of the fact that the police might not enforce it. HOWEVER, we are also aware that Planned Parenthood has cameras, and they would LOVE to do anything to stop pro-life work from continuing.
So if you plan to come out please email a Statement of Peace to Theresa@houstoncoalition.com, and
* wear a mask
*space yourselves 6 feet apart
*please limit your group (this number keeps changing)
Please be aware Harris County is undergoing a "Stay in Place Order" through May 1st.
We are looking for individuals with a
compassionate heart to stand as a peaceful
and prayerful visual witness of hope.
When people stand in peaceful prayer on the sidewalks outside of the abortion facility, it draws women to investigate these life-affirming alternatives! Your presence can be a channel of God’s grace to a frightened mother in crisis.
Your peaceful, prayerful presence can literally help to save a life!
Also from March 22nd to April 21st, in Texas there was an executive order from Gov. Abbott saying that there is a penalty for those who do elective procedures (which includes abortion) during that time. You can read the letter here.
There are some legal questions as to whether this ban was extended with GA 15 or if it was lifted based on what Gov Abbott said on April
If you are looking for help reporting violations of this rule, send pictures, screenshots or documentation to info@TexasAllianceforLife.org
This is a opportunity to share the pro-life message up to the last possible moment with those entering Planned Parenthood. We are looking for churches or groups willing to sponsor 6 hours of a weekday, Monday through Friday, once every other month. The six hours can be the time of day most convenient for you, although we encourage the morning hours as the women go in for abortions early in the day. Please consider committing time to this effort as one of our original 40 churches or groups.
If you are interested and have a day in mind, or if you would like to know more about this effort, we will be happy to work with you on setting up the time most convenient for you and your church or group.
Many thanks, and may God bless you for your work for life!
