You’ve no doubt heard about the multitude of Black Lives Matter murals being painted all over city streets throughout the nation. You’ve likely also heard that, because not everyone agrees with the movement, that several of these paintings have been defaced and covered up since their creation, some within hours.
Naturally, those who did the initial painting or who actively support the Marxist backed movement, there has been a massive outcry for justice. The left claims that a wrong has been done to them, as they were merely peacefully expressing their First Amendment rights. And those calls have not gone unanswered.
For those who did the desecrating, there have been some rather serious charges, including a couple in California who were charged with a hate crime, among other things.
Now, since the idea of street murals has taken off so spectacularly for this particular cause, it really shouldn’t surprise anyone that other causes would soon adopt this form of raising awareness as well as protest.
Then again, you’d be surprised by what surprises the hypocritical left.
Enter Tayler Hansen, who is a staunch pro-life advocate in the Salt Lake City area.
Like many of the Black Lives Matter activists throughout the country, Hansen decided to make a statement “to raise awareness” for what he calls “one of the most egregious human rights violations that has not been properly addressed.”
So he painted a “Baby Lives Matter” mural on the streets of Salt Lake City. And he chose to do right outside of Planned Parenthood to remind them of something they have never considered.
In addition, he made a video about his action and giving his reasons for doing so.
Hansen said, “In 2019, abortion was the leading cause of death worldwide. Almost 43 million children were denied the most basic right of all – life. Which is why I felt inclined to demonstrate a true peaceful protest dedicated to those abandoned without a voice.”
He told the local news outlet, KUTV, that if BLM could paint murals on the streets for their benefits, then certainly, he could do the same. After all, his cause also incorporates theirs.
“With recent events unfolding, everybody knows about the Black Lives Matter murals unfolding around the nation. I thought I would bring awareness to one of the biggest human rights crises that nobody wants to talk about.”
Hansen also admitted that his choice of location was somewhat copied. Like New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who had Black Lives Matter painted on the street outside the Trump Tower, Hansen wanted to make a point. So he put it somewhere that would only increase its meaning and make it that much more uncomfortable for those who don’t agree.
And I have to say putting it on Planned Parenthood’s doorstep would definitely do the trick.
Planned Parenthood, as the most popular and numerous of all abortion clinics in the United States, was reported to have performed 345,672 abortions between October 1, 2017, and September 30, 2018. As Fox News reports, this is a yearly record for the mass-murdering group, as is the $617 million in donations they took in during the last fiscal year.
The Guttmacher Institute estimates that since Roe v. Wade ruled abortions as legal in 1973, over 61 million abortions have taken place in the US alone.
And Planned Parenthood and its supporters took notice, alright. A mere few hours later, Hansen reported via Twitter that his message had already been “desecrated and erased to an extent.”
Now, Hansen can’t press charges or anything like de Blasio has, because he didn’t get permission to create the mural. Instead, he chose a special kind of temporary paint that is supposed to last ten days at the very most, as he doesn’t want to get into any sort of legal trouble. In addition, he did it in the middle of the night.
However, Hansen noted that “THIS IS NOT OVER!” And based on all the support he has amassed on social media for his recent actions, I’d say he is correct.
