The “Pro-Life Spiderman” was back in action this week, climbing the Chase Tower in Phoenix, Arizona to raise awareness and support to save babies from abortion.
KTAR News reports Maison Des Champs, a pro-life advocate and skilled rock climber, scaled the 483-foot skyscraper on Tuesday morning without ropes.
Des Champs, who goes by the nickname “Pro-Life Spiderman,” said he performed the stunt to raise support for a pregnant mother who is considering abortion for financial reasons. He said the woman recently reached out to Let Them Live, a pro-life organization that provides financial and emotional support to help pregnant mothers and babies.
At the top of the Chase Tower, police took Des Champs into custody, KYMA News 11 reports. He likely will face trespassing charges.
Phoenix Fire Department Captain Todd Keller told KTAR News they received a call about Des Champs not long after he began climbing, and they communicated with him during the stunt.
“If this person got fatigued or he needed help, we were ready to act and help this person off the tower,” Keller said.

Emily Berning, president and CEO of Let Them Live, said Tuesday marked Des Champ’s seventh climb for the pro-life cause.
“He climbs and raises awareness and money to support the women that we help so they can choose life over abortion,” Berning told the local news.
Des Champs also has climbed the Devon Tower in Oklahoma City, the Salesforce Tower in San Francisco and the New York Times building in New York City.
“I am a rock climber that has recently started climbing skyscrapers to end abortion,” he wrote on his website Prolifespiderman.com.
Through the stunts, Des Champs said he hopes to raise $1 million for pro-life charities and inspire other young adults to speak out against abortion.
An experienced rock climber, he 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.”
