A stunt-man known as the “Pro-Life Spiderman” has been drawing attention to abortion by climbing some of the tallest buildings in the country.
And today, Maison Des Champs, a 22-year-old college student at the University of Nevada Las Vegas, climbed to the top of the Los Angeles Ritz-Carlton hotel skyscraper to help raise funds to support a pregnant woman considering an abortion who just needs a little support to raise a baby along with rent and childcare.
“When Olivia found out she was pregnant she was immediately scared. With mounting bills and her boyfriend wanting nothing to do with the baby, Olivia felt she needed to schedule an abortion. She is a single mother to 3 kids and is 7 weeks along with her 4th. She lost her job and couldn’t keep up with rent payments so she and her children are on the verge of eviction. If that wasn’t enough, her car broke down and even though she is starting a new job in December, she will have no reliable transportation,” he said in an Instagram post.
Let Them Live will ensure she not only receives financial help, but emotional and financial counseling and coaching as well so she can choose life and successfully get back on her feet.
The money I am raising is to cover these expenses for Olivia as well as other moms that Let Them Live is working with.
Whatever the amount, your donation will ensure Olivia and other women like her are supported and lives are saved from abortion.
In 73% of circumstances, women are choosing abortion because of financial burdens but Let Them Live raises money to relieve those burdens so women can choose life; women like Olivia who are struggling to make ends meet and feel that abortion is their only option.
During his climb, Des Champs hung a banner from a window that read “Support women, not abortion.”
Unfortunately, Des Champs was arrested after he got to the top of the building as he has been on previous climbs. Typically the trespassing charges are either minor or dropped.

“I am a rock climber that has recently started climbing skyscrapers to end abortion,” Des Champs wrote on his website Prolifespiderman.com.
Des Champs climbed the building without safety gear, and performed similar stunts at the Salesforce Tower in San Francisco and the New York Times building in May. He video-streamed his climb Tuesday on Instagram.
Des Champs said his goal is to raise awareness and support for the pro-life movement now that it appears the U.S. Supreme Court will overturn Roe v. Wade this summer.
“Last month I began climbing skyscrapers in protest of Dr. Cesare Santangelo and his involvement in the abortions of five late-term babies, in Washington D.C.,” he said on his website. “Within one week I scaled three towers in three cities across the country. My goal has been to raise awareness about the injustice of abortion.”
He encouraged people to donate to Let Them Live, a pro-life charity that provides financial and emotional support to help mothers choose life for their babies.
“We’re not trying to yell at women who want to have an abortion, we don’t want to blame them…” Des Champs said. “We just want to let them know there are other options.”
Through the stunts, he said he hopes to raise $1,000,000 for pro-life charities and inspire other young adults to speak out against abortion.
An experienced rock climber, Des Champs said he believes climbing skyscrapers is a creative and effective way that he can peacefully protest for the rights of unborn babies.
All of the donations he receives go to organizations that help “pregnant women who are in need of housing, medical care, food, or adoption services,” he said. “Truly the most special thing about this mission is being able to help others and save the lives of innocent babies.”
