It’s Episode Twenty-Two of MRC’s newest video series, CensorTrack with TR. This week we talked about how Big Tech promoted pro-abortion posts and censored life-affirming posts.
The 49th Annual March for Life took place in Washington, D.C., on Friday, Jan. 21. An estimated 150,000 people gathered in solidarity for all life. It’s also important to note the significance that this year holds, as there’s a chance that the Supreme Court will overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade verdict.
After the march, Twitter emphasized pro-abortion posts by highlighting “Roe” under their “Politics” category. This tag increases the reach of related Tweets. The Center for Reproductive Rights posted in celebration of the “49th anniversary of #RoevWade,” and Planned Parenthood tweeted that a Roe v. Wade reversal could “erase … our protected rights.” Both posts along with many others touted support of Roe v. Wade.

Instagram, apparently not wanting to be outdone by Twitter, went after posts in support of life. Instagram removed a post from my personal Instagram account. I posed with a sign I carried at the March for Life that asked: “If you were inconvenient should we kill you too?” The caption of my post read “63 million murders for convenience is 63 million too many. Let’s make this the last year we gotta march for ALL life! Roe gotta go!”
Instagam deleted my post and claimed in a removal notice that “some audiences may be sensitive to different things” only six hours after it was posted. Instagram since reinstated my post after I appealed, but the platform’s reasoning still stands out for its ridiculousness. Big Tech censored me for affirming the sanctity of life but had no qualms leaving up celebratory posts about abortion.
