Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America, calls in to the program to talk about an incident she was involved in a few days ago where two of her fellow student pro-life activists were arrested for writing "Black Pre-Born Lives Matter" on a sidewalk in front of a Planned Parenthood in chalk even though they had a permit to be there. She breaks down the situation for Gus and talks about how the group has filed a civil lawsuit against D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser for violating their first amendment rights. Gus talks about the incredible double standard in today's society where certain people can deface public property with spray paint, destroy businesses and tear down statues but, if you write a pro-life message in chalk, which cleans up very easily, you go to jail. Afterwards, Gus talks with listeners about this incident and asks whether or not Catholics should take part in civil disobedience.

Later, Gus talks a little more about today's Gospel from Matthew where the Canaanite woman asks Jesus to heal her daughter and he refuses her twice. She is persistent though and Jesus does indeed heal her daughter because of her faith. Gus talks about how this demonstrates persistence in prayer and asks listeners to call in who have children who have strayed away from the faith.
