Police called after students paint ‘Black Preborn Lives Matter’ on Baltimore Street


BALTIMORE, MD- On the 300 block of North Howard Street in Baltimore, Maryland, in front of the Planned Parenthood abortion mill, there is a painted sign that reads: “Black Preborn Lives Matter.”

This was a team effort by the pro-life organization, Students for Life of America (SFLA) and the Frederick Douglas Foundation.

The painted message was not vandalism. The groups asked for permission from Mayor Bernard Young (D), the Mayor of Baltimore, after Young allowed other groups to share their political expressions on other city streets the SFLA stated in a statement.

Students for Life of America’s Kristan Hawkins said:

“If we are not free to share our grief over the loss of life from abortion in our own communities, we are not really free at all. Joining together to peacefully tell the world that BLACK PREBORN LIVES MATTER is our right as Americans and our duty as citizens.”

The Rev. Dean Nelson, The Frederick Douglass Foundation and the Human Coalition Action said of their efforts:

“Frederick Douglass said, ‘To suppress free speech is a double wrong. It violates the rights of the hearer as well as those of the speaker.’ 

Freedom of expression is as foundational to our nation as the right to life. By attempting to peacefully paint BLACK PREBORN LIVES MATTER in front of Planned Parenthood abortion facilities around the country, we are shining a light on the racial injustice of the abortion industry.”

Students for Life of America said in their letter to Mayor Young that:

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.”

In their letter they pointed out that public areas are now considered open forums for free speech. They used the precedent of the mayor allowing messages such as “Defund the Police,” and “Black Trans Lives Matter.”

They were quick to point out that he wasn’t allowed to discriminate one side based on his own beliefs, but the mayor must allow all viewpoints to be heard in a public forum.

They added:

The message of the preborn will not be silenced.”

Once they got permission, the SFLA and FDF had some help from local pro-life activists while painting their message.

SFLA said in a statement:

“The effort comes at a time in which Planned Parenthood’s racist past and present are making headlines. Even Planned Parenthood past and present employees acknowledge the racist roots and history of the nation’s No. 1 abortion vendor, which seems to be impacting their current working environment.”

They added that African American women make up 38 percent of all reported abortions. This could be in part that 4 out of 5 Planned Parenthood vendors, according to a Supreme Court amicus brief, are within walking distance of neighborhoods that are mostly minority.

Two pro-life students were arrested after chalking “Black Preborn Lives Matter” in front of a Washington D.C. Planned Parenthood abortion facility.

A SFLA president Kristan Hawkins said in a statement after the arrest, that the message censored in Washington D.C. would be spread throughout the country.

Hawkins said:

“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. Viewpoint discrimination is not constitutional, and we will take this to court if necessary.”

One thing is for sure, these determined pro-life students are fighting for these unborn children. They are working hard to make it known that the infanticide in this country needs to come to an end.

Police officers did show up shortly after the pro-lifers began to paint.  We’re told they did not make the painters remove the message and did not issue any citations.

Baltimore police Sgt. Vincenzo Julio said:

“[The message painted] will remain here unless the city wants to come take it out, and that would be outside the police department.”

In June, a black preacher called out the Black Lives Matter Movement for not taking a stance against the abortions taking place at planned parenthood.

SEATTLE, WA – Don’t all Black Lives Matter?  That’s the question being debated, apparently.
Shouted down by naysayers, preacher Edmee Chavannes stood alone within the area of Seattle known as CHAZ (Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone) or sometimes CHOP (Capitol Hill Occupied Protest), pleading with Black Lives Matter demonstrators to care about the unborn black babies snuffed out by Planned Parenthood.
Chavannes preached:
“Why don’t I see my brothers and sisters outside Planned Parenthood?….
“Number one, folks!  Number one killer of the black community is Planned Murderhood, AKA Planned Parenthood.  I’m black!  I’m black, right?… So how about we not be hypocrites, and how about we do what we’re supposed to do and really care about this.”

One listener is heard to say, “God bless,” but the majority around her were unreceptive. 
A protester near her repeatedly shouted through a megaphone directed at Chavannes:
“Police brutality!”
Chavannes, speaking to a female protester, pointed out:
“I’m black, and I’m a woman, and I’m an immigrant, and I’m trying to convey a message to you.”
The protester responded:
“So you’re a coon.”
Chavannes is co-founder of At the Well Ministries, a pro-life organization that speaks for the unborn. 
According to their website, they are:
“Proclaiming to the blind that Jesus Christ is the answer in dealing with the struggles of life…Taking the message throughout America that pre-born babies have a right to life; to churches, abortion centers, high schools, colleges and the streets.”

Along with At the Well Ministries co-founder Bevelyn Beatty, Chavannes was recently arrested for not observing Mayor de Blasio’s social distancing guidelines while demonstrating at the Margaret Sanger Planned Parenthood Center in Manhattan.
Beatty explained the women’s stance on Black Lives Matter at the time of that arrest:
“We’re black women but we do not support Black Lives Matter because they’re hand-in-hand with Planned Parenthood that kills African-American babies.  They’re fraudulent hypocrites… and I believe all lives matter because God created them.
“There are thousands of George Floyds that die every day in their mother’s womb and it’s just as unjust as when he died at the hands of that police officer.”
According to published data from the CDC, of the 623,471 abortions reported to the CDC in 2016, “non-Hispanic black women had the highest abortion rate (25.1 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15–44 years) and ratio (401 abortions per 1,000 live births).”
The second highest abortion rate and ratio by race was in the category of “Other” at 13 abortions per 1000 women and 207 abortions per 1,000 live births, followed by Hispanic women at 11.7 abortions per 1000 women and 156 abortions per 1,000 live births, and then white women at 6.6 abortions per 1000 women and 109 abortions per 1,000 live births.
Margaret Sanger, eugenicist and founder of Planned Parenthood, would certainly be pleased with these numbers, as one of her stated goals of what would eventually become Planned Parenthood was to “exterminate the Negro population,” and to hire black ministers in order to appeal to black people and hide this intent.
Chavannes asserted at CHAZ that abolishing the police is no solution for black-on-black violence, both against the unborn and the born.

She said:
“You just want to get rid of the police.  That’s what you want…. I’m trying to tell you, you get rid of the police and we’re still going to the chop shop.  We’ll still kill our babies. 
You get rid of the police, and we’ll still kill one another.  Why?  Because we as the black community don’t have the fathers that we need.  We don’t have the fear of the Lord.”
Black Lives matter specifically rejects Chavannes’ prioritizing of present fathers, stating on their website:
“We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and ‘villages’ that collectively care for one another.”
Regarding the subject of oppression, Chavannes stated:
“We lost our way.  Yes, we used to be oppressed…Black women have lost their way.  Black men have lost their way.  Black men used to fight for their families.  Now they just impregnate women, and they take them to the Planned Parenthood.” 
Lest there be any doubt that Black Lives Matter has no difficulty associating with Planned Parenthood, look no further than women’s political activism group Supermajority, cofounded by former Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards and Alicia Garza, cofounder of Black Lives Matter. 
Supermajority claims to believe in “fighting for the basic human needs of all people, including universal health care, public education, a living wage, a clean environment, and affordable housing”  and speaks euphemistically about abortion, talking of “supporting families – including the right of every person to decide whether and when to have children.”
Indeed, the Black Lives Matter website echoes this euphemistic talk of abortion, stating: 
“We demand reproductive justice that gives us autonomy over our bodies.”
Black Lives Matter also states this belief on their website:
“We are guided by the fact that all Black lives matter, regardless of actual or perceived sexual identity, gender identity, gender expression, economic status, ability, disability, religious beliefs or disbeliefs, immigration status, or location.”  
Unless, apparently, that location is within a mother’s womb.
Edmee and Bevelyn Beatty have been seen at protests nationwide educating people, black, white, or otherwise, on real issues facing the black community. They’re dedicated to responding to those out there screaming “Black Lives Matter” with truth and compassion, while calling out the hypocrisy of the movement and its leaders.
