Just weeks ago D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser painted the streets of Washington, D.C. with a powerful slogan, “BLACK LIVES MATTER,” and then allowed activists to paint, with permanent paint, additional messages like “Defund the Police.”
In doing this, she proclaimed not only what those of us in the pro-life movement genuinely believe and fight for every day in front of Planned Parenthoods and other abortion facilities across America. But she also opened up the streets of Washington, D.C. for public expression.
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 SIX police cars threatening to arrest our team and students if they painted, even using the temporary 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.
In fact, when a college student and Students for Life staffer knelt to sidewalk chalk instead of go through with our planned message, the D.C. police arrested them.
With these threats and arrests, 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.
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 power; 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 will 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 fear comes true. Because word is about to “get out” 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 promote for some speech but not others. To those who report to work every day to 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.
BLACK PREBORN LIVES MATTER
