Pro-life activists will join together Saturday morning to paint the words “Black Pre-Born Lives Matter’ in front of a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in the nation’s capital.
Students for Life of America (SFLA) and the Frederick Douglass Foundation will paint the mural on the 1200 block of 4th Street NE and then follow up with a news conference at 10:00 a.m.
“We know from Planned Parenthood’s racist founder Margaret Sanger, that ending black lives was a goal of the organization, and given the placement of Planned Parenthood abortion vendors and their marketing campaigns, that practice continues,” said SFLA Executive Vice President Tina Whittington.
“Consider that, since Roe v. Wade legalized abortion in 1973, abortion has killed an estimated 20 million black babies — more than the entire black population of 1960,” Whittington noted.
The groups also observe black women make up 38 percent of all reported abortions, even though they are only 13 percent of the female population.
