Several pro-life advocates have banded together to launch a new pro-life social networking web site, ProLifeBook, after complaining that the Internet’s number one social media web site discriminated against them.

The new web site, ProLifeBook, appears to have about 500 members so far, but creator and lead web developer Todd Bullis hopes for a safe place for pro-life advocates to share information and support each other.

“This tool will allow pro-life people and groups to communicate real time the activities they are involved in and promote collaboration amongst groups like never before,” he said. “This is the first social networking site of its kind that is designed specifically for pro-life activism. We wanted to create a way for pro-life activities and networking to be shared world wide without censorship that often occurs to pro-life groups that try to use other conventional social networking sites.”

The web site already enjoys the endorsement and support of pro-life blogger Jill Stanek.

Those of us on Facebook have heard the stories – or even personally experienced – having status updates and graphics censored. I, myself, am cautious about posting abortion photos on Facebook, because I’ve heard they are a trigger for getting banned. (I still post them, but sparingly, and so far have escaped notice.)

And we’ve also heard or experienced having our videos banned on YouTube, classic examples being some of Live Action’s video exposés on Planned Parenthood.

Now, a new group, World Life Organization (of which I’ve been asked to be a board member) has introduced Prolifebook, a powerful and censor-safe social networking tool for pro-lifers and pro-life groups.

ProLifeBook looks and works like Facebook but is tailored to us.
