We encourage you to participate in our many events and community outreaches. We hope that as individuals are educated and equipped they will bring the Pro-Life message to their friends, churches, schools, youth groups, civic organizations, businesses, etc. The best way to spread the message of Life is through relationships and word-of-mouth enthusiasm!
As a busy family man and practicing physician, Dr. Morrison had been faithfully making donations to Pro-Life ministries. However, he then felt God’s urging that financial giving was not enough – he needed to take action! Dr. Morrison quickly obeyed that prompting and MCRTL was launched in 2005. The chapter began holding Pro-Life informational meetings and assisting area crisis pregnancy centers.
In 2007 the first Pro-Life student contest ( the Oratory Contest) was launched to expand MCRTL’s educational/inspirational focus. Later Junior High and Senior High Essay Contests, Poster Contests (covering 2nd thru 6th grade), and a Video Contest were added. MCRTL took part in the first national 40 Days for Life campaign in 2007 and is currently the campaign organizer for the Louetta Planned Parenthood location. MCRTL has maintained a prayer presence on Saturday mornings at the Louetta PP since its opening in April 2013 and we work to encourage area churches to make a commitment to prayer/ministry there.
MCRTL began sponsoring Pro-life Scholars at Lone Star College in 2013 so as to have a strong Pro-Life voice among our area youth. In order to further expand our work with the next generation, Young Adult Outreach was launched in September 2016. YAO is focused on engaging Millennials in Pro-Life service projects, education, and leadership. A very successful Pro-Life billboard campaign was begun in January 2017.
Through prayer, educational/inspirational activities, and direct ministry to hurting people, MCRTL is leading the effort in our community to build a society that values and protects each life!
