Pro-life demonstrators painted the street outside a Planned Parenthood with the phrase “BLACK PREBORN LIVES MATTER” in downtown Baltimore.
Fifteen people used non-permanent paint to draw the message around 5 a.m. Saturday outside the Planned Parenthood center, the Baltimore Sun reported.
The group was comprised of members of anti-abortion organizations Students for Life of America and Human Coalition Action, as well as public policy group Frederick Douglass Foundation.
Shortly after 6 a.m., officers arrived but didn’t issue any citations or remove the paint.
Police said the city has allowed groups to paint murals on the street in recent months.
“[The message] will remain here unless the city wants to come take it out, and that would be outside the police department,” Baltimore police Sgt. Vincenzo Julio told the outlet.
Michele Hendrickson, the East Coast regional director for Students for Life, said they were thrilled their message was allowed to stay outside the center.
“We’re thankful for the fair and equal treatment we’ve received in being allowed to practice our right to free speech in this city,” Hendrickson told the newspaper.
