Here’s a cool story most of us missed last spring; the day after someone historically leaked a Supreme Court document hinting that Roe v Wade was about to be overturned, 22-year-old Maison Des Champs risked his own life in a daring feat to raise money for a pro-life non-profit.
While half the country was weeping with joy and half the country was wishing death upon the Supreme Court, occupants of San Francisco’s 1,070-foot Salesforce Tower gapes in disbelief as the self-named “Pro-Life Spiderman” grinned and waved at them on his way up the side of the tower.
Maison climbed the tower as casually as if he were swinging from monkey bars a mere few feet from the ground. Or so it seems in the videos. This is especially impressive – and terrifying- because he had no ropes or safety harnesses. There was no net anywhere to catch him if he fell, no backup plan to save his own life in the event of a misplaced hand or foot, or even a strong wind.
He was met by law enforcement at the top of the building. They arrested the climber, charged him with a couple of misdemeanors, and let him go. A few days later Maison made his way to New York City, where he treated New Yorkers to the sight of him scaling the New York Times building.

One, Maison says in a social media post, was a play on the words of a banner hung by a climate activist who previously climbed the same building with a banner that read, “Climate Change Kills More than 9/11 Every Week.” Maison’s banner referenced abortion, instead. His second banner was a call for the NYT to report on the incident that first inspired Maison to take action.
Maison’s friends discovered the remains of five late-term babies, all of whom appeared to have been aborted illegally. When his friends notified authorities, they expected the abortionist to be arrested. Instead, it was they who were placed in handcuffs.
He is also committed to supporting and helping the women who are struggling to carry their babies and create a stable life for themselves. So he’s donating the money he raises to the nonprofit, Let Them Live.
The nonprofit website states its mission is to help women choose life for their babies while supporting the women by covering their bills, and offering financial literacy education and other supportive services so that the women build solid foundations to move forward in life before their babies are born.
“We are in a cultural battle right now,” Maison told Fox News Host Tucker Carlson. “ There’s never been a better time than right now for us pro-lifers to put our money where our mouth is.”
Maison has demonstrated that we can all make an impact simply by having the courage to use our unique gifts. He’s also proving that the next generation of Americans has bold leaders who are stepping up to help this country reconnect with its humanity.
Way to go, Maison.
