First Amendment Monument (Philadelphia)Chalking or painting messages on sidewalks and streets is growing in popularity, and one pro-life activist says it has become a matter of free speech.

Under scrutiny is an artistic effort at the abortion clinic of Leroy Carhart in Bellevue, Nebraska. Cheryl Sullenger of Operation Rescue tells OneNewsNow staff and women intending on an abortion saw it first-hand this week.

"They were surprised to see painted in the street was a slogan that said, 'Baby lives matter - including black babies,' and it would have been the last thing women saw when they came up from the parking lot and into the front door of the clinic," Sullenger details.

The message is designed to raise awareness on the issue and to also politely confront women arriving for an abortion that the procedure they are there for ends a human life.

Sullenger, Cheryl"If they're going to paint other slogans in the street, why not pro-life ones as well -- unless they're interested in discriminating on the basis of content," the activist poses. "We don't believe that that's something to should happen."

Carhart, one of the few abortionists who will terminate babies through the ninth month of pregnancy in his Maryland clinic, reported the incident to police, but no arrests have been made. In Washington, D.C., however, two members of Students for Life were arrested last month after chalking a similar message on a sidewalk at the Planned Parenthood there. They have been charged with defacing public property.
