Pro-Lifers Arrested For Chalk Message?! No, Really. But What It Said Is The Kicker.

(Right Country) – A pair of pro-life students was arrested on Saturday for writing a message in chalk outside an abortion facility in Washington, DC.

Do you know what the message said?

“Black Preborn Lives Matter.”

Breitbart also reports that:

Despite the fact the students had received a permit for the event, they were arrested, said Students for Life of America (SFLA) President Kristan Hawkins.

SFLA Partnerships Adviser Warner DePriest and Student Leader Erica Caporaletti were arrested on the scene.

“What you didn’t see today on the city’s streets will be coming to billboards across the country, because BLACK PREBORN LIVES MATTER, and we will not be silent,” Hawkins said in a statement. “Viewpoint discrimination is not constitutional, and we will take this to court if necessary.”

The two students were stopped by police when they attempted to share their pro-life message in a painted mural, and then were arrested when they attempted to do so with chalk.

In video taken by Breitbart News, two police officers can be seen arresting the students in front of the Planned Parenthood facility on the 1200 block of 4th Street NE in DC.

SFLA, along with the Frederick Douglass Foundation (FDF) requested in a letter to Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser on July 20 that they be allowed to paint the mural after the mayor allowed the phrases “Black Lives Matter” and “Defund the Police” to be painted on city streets.

They wrote:

Having opened the streets of your city for public expression, Students for Life of America (SFLA) and The Frederick Douglass Foundation (FDF) requests the opportunity to add our voices to those concerned about the treatment of people of color in America. Black Lives do matter, born and preborn, as too many people are lost in America today from causes that should be addressed and prevented for their disproportionate impact on minority communities.

You must allow SFLA and FDF to paint its “Black Pre-born Lives Matter” message. Your original decision to paint “Black Lives Matter” on the street is government speech. However, your decision to allow protestors to paint “Defund the Police” opened the streets up as a public forum. You are not permitted to discriminate on the basis of viewpoint in making determinations relating to public assemblies in public fora. The message of the preborn will not be silenced.

SFLA was granted a permit for the event and asked to use tempera paint. They planned to use the mural to raise awareness about the damage abortion inflicts on the black community.

Hawkins said:

After applying and receiving our permit for this event today, after being told by the Metropolitan police that the Mayor has quote ‘opened a Pandora’s box’ by painting public streets, we arrived to find six police cars threatening to arrest our team and students if they painted, even using the tempera paint we bought that the Police Department specifically requested. When we asked if we could at least use sidewalk chalk to chalk our anti-violence message on the streets, the police threatened to arrest us.

“With these threats D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser 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,” Hawkins asserted. “She will be hearing from Students for Life’s attorneys about these unconstitutional efforts to limit speech to government-approved topics.”

  1. hypocrits and liars /muderers are all the democrats , some in disguise as catgolics even priest who would vote dempocrat when they will allow and fund abortion they will end in hell and God will decide; “you can’t be catholic and be proabortion or vote for it ” that is the truth of our faith , don’t be fooled

  2. This is just another power play by the two-faced demonrats who lie, cheat, kill, destroy, kill babies, and who have hired BLM and ANTIFA to do their dirty work for a price. Catholic priests and clergy are a disgrace. They will be judged and end up burning in hell because they have disgraced and blasphemed the name of the Lord.
    Matthew 18:6 – But who so shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and [that] he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

      • About 3 months ago my daughter prematurely delivered my granddaughter at 26 weeks. While only a little over 3 lbs at birth she has never had any health problems. In every state it would be legal to murder that baby at the age she was born.
        And this idiot calls us deplorable?

      • You won’t be able to argue that to God on the judgment day of the Lord. Please change your heart on this matter.

  3. I keep hearing all this black life matter and sh-t saying kill white, they keep talking sh-t they better be able to back their fat mouths, WHITE LIVES MATTER, their pushing their luck to far…..

    • You’re a real tough guy behind your keyboard you p.o.s.! I’d drop you like a ten pound bag of nickels you knuckle dragging mouth breather!

      • I’m sure you were referring to yourself shittoh head… you certainly could try and I would welcome it… you would simply just disappear for good if you tried

  4. I think we are clearly seeing democratic governors, mayors, etc, have governed way too long, are biased, bigoted, stupid, do not govern well Snd its time to take them out of office and instead have them clean up the streets in balls and chains and prison uniforms

  5. That’s disgusting, so BLM can cover our streets with their yellow letters but writing a message in chalk about “Black Preborn Lives Matter”outside an abortion facility in Washington, DC. Pro-Lifers get Arrested by the scumbag D.C. Mayor, Muriel Bowser. Give me a break, ALL Lives and WHITE LIVES MATTER also. Running out of patience for these leftist socialist democratic scum politicians. Charles you’re absolutely correct, this is total bullish*t.

  6. I thought anti abortion was a Christian stance. I’m having trouble detecting that in your responses. What happened to love your neighbor as yourself and judge not lest ye be judged?

  7. Gary, Jesus got angry several times while He walked this earth. He in fact entered the temple and upset the money changer’s table, also opened the cages that contained the sacrificial doves and said that that area was for prayers. He rebuked His disciples for not allowing little children to get on the lap of our Lord to be blessed. We followers of Christ are angry because this demonic organization is a chop, slice, profit blood money evil entity that takes the unborn lives of the miracles that God creates and sell them to various experimental places or dumps as human garbage. So what is your point here???

  8. Thou shalt not harm not even a hair on a child’s head. You would be better off with a millstone around your neck and at the bottom of the ocean! Saith the Lord ! He that has an ear let him hear!

  9. I gather that the only lives that matter are those that fit the “qualifications set by the far left Democrats”. They pick and choose who is worthy of life and who is not and it seems their life is important and no one else’s life is. They better take and good look around and see that down the road their life will not matter when eternity calls and most will be headed for “hell”.
