A pro-lifer made a troublesome discovery on-board a United Airlines flight recently. The airline company was blocking passengers from viewing a pro-life website, but several pro-abortion websites were readily accessible.

The Blaze reports that Lila Rose, president of Live Action, made the startling discovery public on Twitter earlier this week.

“Planned Parenthood’s enthusiastic backing of the shutting out of Live Action’s news website shouldn’t surprise anyone,” Rose told reporter Kate Scanlon. “The abortion chain has sought to silence and smear anyone who doesn’t agree with its extreme ideology, as it’s shown with its recent lawsuit against the activists who exposed its baby parts scandal. It has even censored its own supporters for not backing its endorsed candidate, Hillary Clinton, by deleting their comments on social media.”

On Wednesday, Rose tweeted:

The abortion business Planned Parenthood, whose website was not blocked by the in-flight wi-fi, celebrated the censorship soon after Rose began tweeting about it. The abortion group tweeted:

Later that afternoon, United Airlines responded to Rose on Twitter, saying that the block was a mistake and the company would remove the block of Live Action’s website.

After thanking the airline for fixing the problem, Rose responded to Planned Parenthood’s tweets with information showing the abortion giant lying to women and girls:



United Airlines has been accused of pro-abortion bias in the past. In 2012, former company CEO Jeff Smisek co-hosted a fundraising gala for Planned Parenthood in Texas, LifeNews reported. In September 2015, Smisek resigned from United amid a federal investigation.
