BREAKING: SFLA Activists Arrested in D.C. for Attempting to Write “Black Preborn Lives Matter” in Chalk

Last month, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser ordered “BLACK LIVES MATTER” to be painted on a street in large yellow letters.

Students for Life applied for today’s even outside the D.C. Planned Parenthood and were told by the Metropolitan police that the Mayor has quote “opened a Pandora’s box” by painting public streets. SFLA planned to paint “BLACK PREBORN LIVES MATTER” on the street outside Planned Parenthood.

Upon arriving today with Frederick Douglas Foundation, the pro-life activists were met by six police cars and were threatened to be arrested if they painted or chalked the street. SFLA claims that they were planning to use tempera pain which the police department specifically requested.

An SFLA staffer and student began to use chalk on the street and were swiftly arrested by the D.C. police.

In a blog for SFLA, Kristan Hawkins, the president of SFLA, sent a strong message to the leadership involved with the arrest of her team members:

With these threats, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bower has made her motives clear as she apparently only thinks that SOME Black Lives Matter and that only SOME slogans are allowed to be painted on streets.

She is Wrong.

Not only has she bought into the eugenic and racist lies that Planned Parenthood sells and what their political contributions guarantees that what goes on inside of Planned Parenthoods each and every day is anything but violence and racism. But she has bought into the lies that only some people have freedom of speech and expression in America, people like her in positions of powers, people like her who pride themselves on their “wokeness.”

Well, Mayor Bowser, you’re about to get WOKE on Planned Parenthood’s racist past and present. You’re about to get WOKE on the violence of abortion. You’re about to get WOKE on the FIRST AMENDMENT.

Because, the Students for Life and the Pro-Life Generation will not stop. Today, across America, Planned Parenthood will end 360 black lives. And we will no longer be silent. We will no longer politely wait for you to acknowledge our rights to free speech and expression.

The next place Mayor Bowser will see us will be in the court room. Because Students for Life will sue the city of Washington, D.C. for violating our First Amendment rights to free speech and expression today.

And then next, Mayor Bowser and Planned Parenthood are going to see our message on billboards in D.C. and across the nation.

Today, the Pro-Life Generation is gathering in front of Planned Parenthoods across America to stand up and proclaim that BLACK LIVES DO MATTER, that BLACK PREBORN LIVES MATTER, that BLACK WOMENS LIVES MATTER and that Planned Parenthood ends 360 BLACK LIVES every single day.

Get ready Mayor Bowser. Get ready Planned Parenthood. Get ready Congress.

We’re going to ensure that Planned Parenthood’s Founder, Margaret Sanger’s biggest fearcomes true. Because word is about to spread across the nation that Planned Parenthood was founded and continues to this very day to exterminate black lives.

To those in Congress who continue to vote to fund Planned Parenthood with more than $500 million in our taxpayer dollars each year. To those in power who believe that they can use public streets to for some speech but not others. To those report to work every day in Planned Parenthood’s across the nation only to ensure that the lives of tiny human beings, of all skin colors, are torn apart and thrown away.

The Pro-Life Generation will not be silent.
