Whereas: Mayor Muriel Bowser used taxpayer funds to paint a blatantly political message on the city streets near the White House during the Black Lives Matter riots in 2020; and
Whereas: Pro-Life students were arrested for writing life-affirming messages on the public sidewalk in front of the Planned Parenthood in chalk; and
Whereas: After a year long fight, charges were dropped against the brave Pro-Lifers; and
Whereas: Allowing protesters to use permanent paint without a permit and write things like “DEFUND THE POLICE” next to the city-sanctioned mural means the city must give equal access to groups like Students for Life; and
Whereas: A federal judge dismissed Students for Life’s case against the city because police did not have concerns about a violent reaction from the peaceful pro-life protesters;
Therefore: I insist you support the rights of Pro-Life groups to speak freely in Washington, D.C.
