(Natural News) When you really stop to think about it, abortion at its core represents everything that liberals claim to oppose: primarily hatred and violence against innocent human life. But talking about abortion in anything other than positive terms has become a taboo subject on social media, where opposing this gruesome act can actually get you banned for violating the tech cabal’s “hate speech” policies.
A recent case-in-point example of this was the abortion ban repeal that was voted on in Ireland last spring, prior to which both Facebook and Google decided it was necessary to ban all online advertising related to the referendum. Though this admittedly included both sides of the issue, U.S. News & World Report explained that it was mostly aimed at silencing “anti-abortion groups in the U.S. and elsewhere,” which pro-abortion fanatics feared might influence the outcome.
Abortion was eventually legalized in Ireland, presumably thanks, at least in part, to Facebook and Google’s stifling of free speech on this hot-button issue – something that’s becoming increasingly common on these two platforms, as well as others like Twitter. And yet, when it comes to promoting abortion, the tech giants all roll out the red carpet in unison.
As we recently reported, “Shout Your Abortion” founder Amelia Bonow actually published a video in which she talked all about her abortion to underage children. The purpose of the video is to brainwash children into believing that getting an abortion is no different than going to the dentist to get a teeth-cleaning – and Big Tech sees nothing wrong with this, as Bonow’s video has amassed tens of thousands of views, and has yet to be removed.
However, were Bonow’s video centered around opposing abortion, all bets would be off as to its online fate – an increasingly pronounced double standard across social media that bodes ominous for the future of online free speech.

Twitter marks pro-life ads as “offensive,” but allows Planned Parenthood to freely advertise
Arguably the worst platform in terms of censorship, Twitter is particularly hostile to pro-life messages, including in its advertising lineup. Back in September, pro-life activist and founder of the group Live Action, Lila Rose, published an editorial at USAToday.com discussing the bias that she’s observed in trying to advertise pro-life messages on the platform.
Despite the fact that Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey claims that Twitter is committed to “neutrality,” Rose says that Live Action’s advertising and content has repeatedly been targeted for removal, with claims that it “violated sensitive advertising content policy,” which prohibits “inflammatory or provocative content which is likely to evoke a strong negative reaction.”
“Some examples of this supposedly offensive content include pictures of children developing in the womb and even simple ultrasound images of babies – like the ones that expectant parents hang on their refrigerator doors,” Rose writes.
“Twitter’s actions suggest it’s fine for Planned Parenthood to tweet that taxpayers who don’t want to fund the nation’s largest abortion chain are ‘extremists,’ but when I tweet that there are alternative options to Planned Parenthood, Twitter calls that an offensive violation of policy,” she adds.
The only solution, it would seem, is for all conservatives, Christians, and other targeted groups to shut down their Twitter accounts and move to more tolerant platforms – if such platforms existed, of course. There is Gab.ai, though even this platform has been targeted and de-platformed by hosting services for alleged hate speech – even as pedophiles, anti-white racists, and terrorists freely post all over Twitter without issue.
