It is always amazing how the far left, pro-abortion, pro-homosexuality Silicon Valley is so intolerant of anyone who wishes to express the Judeo-Christian principle of the sanctity of all innocent human life. In this midterm election, a good example of this was Facebook, which has earned the title of “Fakebook.”
The Susan B. Anthony List, which supports pro-life candidates, had six ads censored by the social media giant, Facebook, several weeks before the midterm elections. Facebook apologized for the “mistake” when it removed an ad of the Susan B. Anthony List, which was a 30-second ad in support of the Tennessee U.S. Senate candidate, Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R), setting forth her extensive pro-life record and exposing the extreme pro-abortion position of her opponent.
However, only within hours after said apology, SBA List stated that Facebook then took down another one of its ads, which supported the Montana pro-life candidate for U.S. Senate, Matt Rosendale (R).
SBA List Vice President of Communications, Mallory Quigley, issued the following statement:
“We are days away from the midterm elections, and Facebook once again is censoring our message – this time in the battleground state of Montana. This is the sixth time this month that Susan B. Anthony List and our partners have had an ad campaign shut down. Our pro-life message is constantly under threat by Facebook which, despite the promises of COO Sheryl Sandberg, has created a hostile environment for pro-lifers to advertise in.
“Which ads of Planned Parenthood’s has Facebook denied? Which pro-abortion candidates have they censored? Facebook is a communications tool through which both sides are working to engage and turn out voters, but now Facebook is not even bothering to hide their bias.”
As reported by lifenews.com, “Facebook also blocked two of its election ads that expose politicians who support late-term abortions. The ads tell the stories of preemies Charlotte Ryun and Micah Pickering, who were born at 24 and 22 weeks, respectively. Both now are thriving children. In the ads, their parents speak about the value of their children’s lives and the tragedy of laws that allow unborn babies at those same states of pregnancy to be aborted for any reason The social media site claimed the premature babies’ images were too ‘graphic.'”
This is not the first incident by any means of the pro-abortion Facebook denying its viewers facts and information they think they are receiving. The makers of the film Gosnell found their ads also being censored by Facebook. Live Action News, known for its undercover investigations of Planned Parenthood, complains that Twitter has been censoring their ads, which told them to change the information on their website if they wanted to advertise on Twitter.
In 2016, employees at Facebook admitted that they were suppressing conservative news stories in favor of liberal ones.
SBA List presented a timeline of 11 known instances of Facebook blocking six different ads since October 9, 2018.
“Over the past two years, Facebook has come under fire for improperly restricting numerous conservative, pro-life, and pro-family voices, including Republican candidates, the ‘Activist Mommy” Elizabeth Johnston, theologian Dr. Robert A.J. Gagnon, conservative video bloggers Diamond and Silk, ex-gay speaker Joseph Sciambra, and numerous pro-life groups, videos, and ads,” reports lifesitenews.com. “Last month (October), Facebook purged, without warning, more than 559 political pages and 251 accounts for supposedly ‘inauthentic behavior,” disproportionately affecting right-of-center pages.”
