Inaugural Rally- APRIL 19, 2019 Good Friday ---PRO LIFE RALLY
All Lavaca County (and area) citizens, clubs, churches, veterans, schools, Chambers, families, officials gathered for a county wide Rally for Life.... RISE UP for LIFE gathered at the Hallettsville Post Office (3:30-3:45) , and walked/marched to the Lavaca County Courthouse at 3:45pm on Good Friday afternoon.
The program by a grassroots committee began at 4 pm at the Gazebo. Program was completed in 1 hour.
People brought their own chairs. We invited parents to bring their children.
Organizations, Churches, Schools are invited to march behind their own banner or flags. Many brought their own signs. IT WAS A GREAT SUCCESS!!!
Just how great is our Heavenly Father!! This came about quickly and smoothly-It was all GOD !!
From a LCRP meeting just after the Virginia Dr/Gov told the world so callously, coldly, matter of factly how it was “ok” to allow a baby -after it survived a failed abortion & she/he was born alive -to be then after live birth...murdered! ...INFANTISIDE!!
Our small group wept... went into prayer and wanted to scream & shout from the rooftops... THAT IS NOT RIGHT!! THAT IS A SIN-ABORTION ITSELF IS A SIN! And to take the life of a precious just born baby is just unthinkable! We HAD to do SOMETHING! The group decided a PRO-LIFE RALLY- NOW!! Don’t wait for the bigger ones in January-DO IT NOW! So we did!!

Our 2019 Inaugural Rally Speakers:
Edee Davis Sinclair you added to this group time, talent & a testimony of your mom “The Miracle Baby of Dallas”!
Vanessa Hicks-Callaway you were dynamic and outspoken as usual! Pushing us to be more conservative than ever-giving facts & numbers of the abortion industry of all babies especially the high number of black babies killed by abortion!
Pastor John Schmidt - wow ...what a sermon! Reminding us of those names we all recognize-Tim Tebow, Steve Jobs that have left legacies that might not ever be known if their MOTHERS had abortions as they were encouraged to do! As well as your own personal testimony of your mom as a teen being bullied to have an abortion by her parents & her pastor when she was pregnant with you! And encouraging all of us to reach out to others, find someone to mentor & raise up another generation of believers!! Thank you 3 speakers for celebrating PRO LIFE with us!
