Dozens of LifeNews readers notified us today that they had problems sharing the important story on Facebook. Already, tens of thousands of readers have been informed about a new company working with a late-term abortion clinic processing it’s “medical waste,” which is the bodies of unborn babies killed in abortions up to birth. But Facebook has been caught removing the posts when people try to post or share the news article.
The story calls on pro-life advocates and other concerned citizens to contact the company and urge it to quit doing business with the late-term abortion clinic. However, Facebook is censoring the story and prohibiting Facebook users from posting it — calling it spam and claiming that it “violates Facebook’s community standards.” The social media giant provided no other evidence or information backing up is allegation that the story was spam or a violation of its standards.
Here is a sampling of some of the comments LifeNews received from readers who had problems posting the story to Facebook:
“Facebook is now blocking some of your URLs when folks try to repost them. Today’s example:You can’t post this because it has a blocked link
Please remove this link to continue.
If you think you’re seeing this by mistake, please let us know
“Facebook will not let me share your articles and even when I copy and paste the url to messenger they will not let me send it saying that it is not safe. You probably already know this but thought I would let you know in case you didn’t know.”
“I shared a story from LifeNews about a company picking up from an abortion clinic. He was hauling overly full containers and it was said to be the babies killed at the clinic. Facebook said it was spam and removed it from my post.”
“Just thought I’d give you evidence that Facebook is shadow banning conservative pro-life messages.”
An email to Facebook has not been returned requesting information on why this LifeNews story was censored.
