Washington, D.C. police arrested two pro-life activists Saturday for writing "black pre-born lives matter" in chalk on the sidewalk outside of a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic.
Live Action reports that the activists had obtained permits:
D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser ordered the painting of "Black Lives Matter" in the city in June and went on to allow citizens to paint "Defund the Police" there as well, using permanent paint. But according to Students for Life of America, after receiving a permit to paint "Black Preborn Lives Matter" on the street, the group arrived to find six police cars waiting for their planned 10 a.m. arrival in front of Planned Parenthood. They had planned to use temporary paint that would wash off as the police suggested, but were told they could not use it after all. When they asked if they could use sidewalk chalk, the police told them they would face arrest if they did.
The pro-life activists proceeded to write on the sidewalk in chalk and were placed under arrest.
