Facebook has been blocking an important new film series that documents how Planned Parenthood covers up child sexual abuse.
Live Action, which produced the series, said the social media giant has been holding its ads for prolonged “policy review” because it deems them “political content.” One of the ads was blocked for more than a week, the pro-life group reported last week.
Through a series of legal documents, undercover investigations and interviews, Live Action’s new series is exposing a continuous pattern of covering up sexual abuse by the largest abortion provider in America.
The pro-life group’s message is specifically geared toward young women and girls, a target audience of the billion-dollar “nonprofit” abortion chain. But Live Action’s efforts to reach them online have been blocked by left-leaning media giants like Facebook.
“By preventing the ads to run, the social media giant is suppressing Live Action’s ability to advertise the pro-life message,” Live Action contributor Susan Michelle-Hanson wrote Wednesday. “By contrast, Planned Parenthood appears to have free reign when it comes to ads. As Live Action News pointed out this week, Facebook seems happy to take the abortion corporation’s money for ads that violate its own advertising policy.”
Some of the new videos already have more than 1 million views on Facebook. However, the ad block has prevented the organization from exposing the truth to even more viewers.
Live Action is one of may pro-life and conservative groups that have struggled with political bias on social media sites.
Last year, Live Action said Twitter also has been censoring its ads. Founder and President Lila Rose said the social media site blocked their ability to advertise and told them to change information on their websites if they want to start advertising again.
In October, Twitter also rejected an ad from pro-life Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn because she mentioned Planned Parenthood’s sales of aborted baby body parts. Twitter later reversed its decision after LifeNews and other news outlets reported about the matter.
Earlier this year, two Hollywood actors who are working with pro-life leaders on a film detailing the true story behind Roe v. Wade said Facebook is blocking their project as well. Nick Loeb told World News Daily that he believes the film’s pro-life message and its exposure of Planned Parenthood’s eugenic history is the reason behind the censorship.
Barbara Listing, president of Right To Life of Michigan, said Facebook also blocked her organization’s advertising account in 2017. It later reinstated the account after the news media drew attention to the matter.
People have been keeping a closer eye on Facebook since 2016 when some of its workers first admitted that they suppressed conservative news stories in favor of liberal ones. Since then, even more stories of Facebook’s bias and questionable dealings have erupted in the news.
LifeNews.com, which is the leading pro-life news website on the Internet and the only one specifically devoted to pro-life issues, has long believed that Facebook has been suppressing its traffic.
