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. “But pro-life people in Washington, DC and across the country want to make it clear that every life matters and deserves a future.”
The activists said in a joint press release they are coming together “to celebrate the future of the community, beautiful children with endless potential who deserve the opportunity to make their mark in the world.”
“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.
The statistic is significant considering that four of five Planned Parenthood facilities are within walking distance of minority or low-income neighborhoods.
The pro-life organizations sent a letter, dated July 20, to Washington, DC, Mayor Muriel Bowser, requesting to paint the mural. The groups wrote:
Having opened the streets of your city for public expression, Students for Life of America (SFLA) and The Frederick Douglass Foundation (FDF) requests the opportunity to add our voices to those concerned about the treatment of people of color in America. 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.
You must allow SFLA and FDF to paint its “Black Pre-born Lives Matter” message. Your original decision to paint “Black Lives Matter” on the street is government speech. However, your decision to allow protestors to paint “Defund the Police” opened the streets up as a public forum. You are not permitted to discriminate on the basis of viewpoint in making determinations relating to public assemblies in public fora. The message of the preborn will not be silenced.
The news conference following the painting of the mural will be available on SFLA’s Facebook Live.

Shes Gods Little Miracle Child: Long Island Doctor Reunited With Baby Girl He Helped Save After She Was Born Prematurely
They were back where it all began, at the family’s Jeep. Dr. John Mathew happily took in adorable Mikayla Petti.
“She’s God’s little miracle child over here,” Mathew told CBS2’s Andrea Grymes.
It was a very different day at St. Joseph Hospital in Bethpage from the one in the same parking lot nearly six months ago.
“If it wasn’t for Dr. Mathew and the team here, Mikayla never would’ve come as far as she has,” said Mikayla’s mother, Maria Petti.
Maria Petti knew something was wrong back in February when she was just 24 weeks pregnant. She told her husband, Andrew, they had to get to a hospital.
“We were only a few blocks away from the house and Maria started screaming that the baby was coming out,” said Andrew Petti. “It was in her pant leg.”

The Pettis wanted to get to a hospital with a neonatal intensive care unit, but there was no time. Mikayla had plans of her own. That’s why, instead, her dad instead pulled up to St Joseph near their house, which does not even have a labor and delivery department.
“I ran into the front door and I said, ‘My wife is 24 weeks pregnant. The baby just came out in the car,'” said Andrew. “Everyone’s jaw dropped and they said pull around to the ambulatory bay.”
Dr. Mathew and other staffers rushed outside to meet them.
“We were able to clamp the cord for little Mikayla. I cut her and I just brought her inside,” said Dr. Mathew
“He showed her to me and said, ‘She’s really tiny. I’m going to do the best that I can,'” Maria said.
“I think we resuscitated Mikayla for about 90 minutes,” said Dr. Mathew. “She was a fighter.”
A neonatal transport team arrived from Cohen Children’s Medical Center and brought Mikayla to North Short University Hospital in Manhasset.
“We arrived within 90 minutes of birth, but that’s a critical time,” said Dr. Howard Heiman of Cohen Children’s Medical Center.
Also critical at only 24 weeks old, which doctors say is the earliest a baby can possibly survive outside the womb. Mikayla had successful heart surgery and still has a little lung disease. But, she finally went home in mid-June after 122 days in the hospital.
Doctors expect her to live a long, normal life, thanks in large part to Dr. Mathew, in particular, who tearfully accepted a gift from Mikayla’s grateful parents.
Mikayla’s parents hope she grows up to be a NICU nurse, calling them “amazing people.”
