Facebook Reverses Censorship of Major Pro-Life

Group, Threatens Future Penalizations

09-14-2019
Tré Goins-Phillips, Faithwire

Just one day after a group of Republican senators sent a letter to Facebook CEO Mark
Zuckerberg regarding his site’s “censorship” of a major pro-life group’s content, the Silicon
Valley-based company has reversed its flagging efforts.

In late August, Facebook flagged two videos posted by Live Action in which founder and
president Lila Rose argued abortion is “never medically necessary.” Citing transparently
biased “fact-checkers” with the left-leaning Health Feedback, Facebook flagged the videos
featuring Rose as “false news.”

It is worth noting that one of those supposed “fact-checkers,” Jennifer Gunter, has openly
bashed Live Action on social media for its pro-life bonafides.

Hey @LiveAction I am going to start the #LiveActionLiars
thread
Medical reasons for abortion
- ruptured membranes previability
- renal failure needing dialysis
- mirror syndrome
- severe PIH pre viability
- cardiomyopathy
etc.

Jennifer Gunter

@DrJenGunter

I have personally saved a life of a woman with each of the
conditions I just described above so fuck you and your lies

Things are pretty bleak right now, so I would have a small
measure of joy if #LiveActionLiars were to trend

Following the censorship, Sens. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Kevin Cramer
(R-N.D.), and Mike Braun (R-Ind.) sent a letter to Zuckerberg, rebuking the company’s
“pattern of censorship” and called for an external audit of its policies.

On Thursday, according to Rose, Facebook removed its page violations from the Live
Action account, but offered no apology to the thousands of page fans who were notified
when Facebook first flagged the content and threatened future penalizations following an
“investigation” into the matter.

Lila Rose

@LilaGraceRose

UPDATE: @facebook has removed our page violations,
saying we may be penalized again after an “investigation”

No apology or update sent to the 1000s of our followers
they had contacted

The abortionists’ “fact-check,” lying about our videos,
remains on Facebook’s partner website

Hawley responded to the news with his own tweet, demanding Facebook notify all Live
Action followers that the company’s fact-checking of the pro-life group’s content was
“bogus.”

Speaking with Faithwire earlier this month, Alison Centofante, director of external
communications for Live Action, said part of the reason the pro-life organization is
targeted so often is because “we’re really effective and changing hearts and minds.”

“And for good, bad, or worse, these are the platforms we utilize most often,” she
continued. “This is where we gather our news and Facebook shouldn’t be the arbiter of
truth on a national debate that’s been ongoing in our country.”

Centofante added Facebook has told Live Action it is reviewing the processes and policies
the company has in place.
