Police arrested two pro-life students who were chalking the phrase “Black Preborn Lives Matter” in front of a Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Washington, DC, Saturday morning.
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.
