Indecline, a two-decade-old activist art collective, hung a 14-meter-high banner reading “God bless abortions” on a massive Jesus memorial on Thursday evening in northwest Arkansas.
“The project, titled ‘God Bless Abortions’, is a direct response to the dramatic attempts being made in Arkansas and across the south to ban abortion services for women in need,” the art collective said on Friday.
An activist arts group called Indecline posted this banner on the Christ of the Ozarks statue in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, Thursday night.
The banner was draped between the outstretched arms of the 67-foot statue of Christ of the Ozarks in Eureka Springs on Thursday evening.

Members of Indecline disguised themselves as construction crew to sneak into the property and then used pulleys and other climbing gear to hang the banner.
“There is only one 65-foot statue of Jesus in Arkansas. There is also only one abortion clinic,” Indecline wrote in an Instagram caption explaining the project. “We think abortion is a miracle worth celebrating. It saves lives, but those lives are usually female.”

Originally built in 1966, the statue of Christ of the Ozarks weighs 2 million pounds and is made of 24 layers of white mortar, according to The Great Passion Play, which is performed nearby.
This is not the group’s first project on abortion. In March they destroyed a Christian billboard in Missippi that said, “Worried? Planned Parenthood Offers Abortions ”instead of“ Worried? Jesus offers security ”.
A Eureka Springs Police Department public information officer was unavailable on Friday.
