Twitter Censors Congresswoman’s Announcement


Earlier this week, in a blatant display of political suppression, Twitter censored an ad by pro-life U.S. Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn announcing her candidacy for the U.S. Senate. On Monday, her campaign was informed by Twitter that it cannot advertise a video wherein Blackburn mentions Planned Parenthood and its sale of aborted baby body parts. Here is the part that merited the Twitter ban:

"I know the left calls me a wing-nut or a knuckle-dragging conservative. And you know what? I say, that’s all right, bring it on. I’m 100-percent pro-life. I fought Planned Parenthood and we stopped the sale of baby body parts, thank God."

Twitter told Blackburn’s campaign that it will run the video ad only if they remove the language about Planned Parenthood. She still may promote the video on her Twitter account. [Evidently, the first amendment does not apply to pro-lifers.]

According to LifeNews, "The Tennessee Republican has established herself as a champion for the rights of unborn babies. The eight-term congresswoman has a 100-percent pro-life voting record. Most recently, she chaired the U.S. House Select Panel on Infant Lives, which investigated Planned Parenthood’s sales of aborted baby body parts." Below is Rep. Marsha Blackburn's censored ad.

Prayer for the Gift of Life

Father, maker of all. You adorn all creation with splendor and beauty, and fashion human lives in your image and likeness. Awaken in every heart reverence for the work of your hands, and renew among your people a readiness to nurture and sustain your precious gift of life. Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God forever. Amen.
