“Baby Lives Matter” was painted in large letters overnight outside of a Salt Lake City Planned Parenthood.
The art was no doubt inspired by the “Black Lives Matter” painted outside the White House last month.
The artist, Tayler Hansen, tweeted a video where explained the reason behind his artistry, saying it was “dedicated to those abandoned without a voice.”
“My name is Tayler Hansen. I’m making this video to raise awareness of one of the most egregious human rights violations that has not been properly addressed.

Anyone who drives into the Planned Parenthood building today (cause it will probably be painted over by tomorrow) is going to see the convicting message left by the pro-life hero.
This is likely to garner some protests, perhaps uncivilized opposition, and some paint splattering.
We’ll be sure to update the story as new information comes.
