While protesters have thronged the streets for the last few weeks destroying property, threatening police and ignoring with impunity guidelines related to the coronavirus, a certain pair of female protesters were put in handcuffs in New York City late last month.

Their crime? Protesting outside a New York City Planned Parenthood abortion clinic.

The incident occurred in the same week that thousands gathered in closely packed crowds to protest the death of George Floyd in police custody.

Bevelyn Beatty and Edmee Chavannes, who co-founded At the Well Ministries, were handcuffed on May 30 on the sidewalk in front of the Margaret Sanger Planned Parenthood Center in Manhattan.

The pair were told they were violating New York Mayor Bill de Blasio’s COVID-19-related social distancing orders.

“This is a clear statement of their bias now. It’s blatant now,” Beatty said to FOX News. “It’s really truly biased against Christians, against pro-life abolitionists.”

Staff at the clinic called authorities on the two women, who were given citations for “failure to disperse” with a September court date, according to Live Action News.

Police told Fox News there are no arrest records for the two women, but video showed officers putting them in handcuffs and leading them inside an NYPD vehicle.

“We’re black women but we do not support Black Lives Matter because they’re hand-in-hand with Planned Parenthood that kills African-American babies,” Beatty told FOX. “They’re fraudulent hypocrites… and I believe all lives matter because God created them. There are thousands of George Floyds that die every day in their mother’s womb and it’s just as injust as when he died at the hands of that police officer.”
