Facebook Is Doing Planned Parenthood’s Bidding In Banning Pro-Life Group LifeSiteNews
May 8, 2021 By Tristan Justice
Facebook permanently banned LifeSiteNews — one of the largest pro-life websites — from the social media platform on Tuesday. The ban comes four months after YouTube did the same in February, and Twitter in January.
LifeSiteNews reported Facebook stripped its page after it published an op-ed in April raising concerns over potential side effects of the coronavirus vaccines administered to individuals previously infected with COVID-19.
“In a quick series of notices and emails to LifeSiteNews’ marketing department, Facebook delivered the shocking news, accusing LifeSite of publishing ‘false information about COVID-19 that could contribute to physical harm,'” the pro-life site explained to readers. “Facebook also said that they deplatform Facebook pages that publish ‘vaccine discouraging information on the platform.'”
LifeSiteNews’ pro-abortion rivals took a victory lap on Twitter, celebrating big tech’s role as the arbiters of truth with demands Silicon Valley be more aggressive to deplatform conservative rivals.
“We’ll take the win,” wrote NARAL Pro-Choice [Pro-Abortion] America President Ilyse Hogue on Twitter. “The more platforms that ban LifeSite, the better because they are primary purveyors of some of the most toxic disinformation out there.”
