‘We are proud to stand up to Pinterest and its censorship of our allies in the pro-life movement”, said Kristan Hawkins.
FREDERICKSBURG, VA (6-13-19)–
Students for Life of America announced today that they will post Live Action content on its Pinterest page, in solidarity with Live Action, which Pinterest recently banned from its site over spurious reasons.
Earlier today, Students for Life of America uploaded over 50 pieces of Live Action content to its Pinterest.
Kristan Hawkins, President of Students for Life of America said in a statement, “Live Action has been unfairly barred from Pinterest for supporting both women and their preborn infants. Even though at Students for Life we have not used our Pinterest in some time because it’s a dying forum, we are glad to support our allies in the pro-life movement in ensuring their message is shared. The irony is that Pinterest is supposed to be a way to highlight things that their users love, not forcing people to highlight Pinterest’s abortion viewpoint … or else.”
Hawkins herself has had Twitter posts flagged as “potentially sensitive content.”
Pinterest vaguely told media outlets and Live Action that the group was banned for “misinformation related to conspiracies and anti-vaccination advice…”.
Live Action theorizes that the misinformation is a slur against the Center for Medical Progress videos.
