Last week, Pinterest permanently banned Live Action from its platform, after accusing it of spreading misinformation [read: criticism of Planned Parenthood].
In response, Students for Life of America has been uploading Live Action content to Pinterest in a show of support. In a press release, Kristan Hawkins stated, “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.”
Taking our lead, other pro-life groups soon joined in solidarity.
In response to @Pinterest banning @LiveAction Students for Life will vow to post any content Live Action sends us. Today, we uploaded over 50 pieces of Live Action content and will continue to do so. Bring it on, @Pinterest .#prolife #censorship #pinterest

Hey @Pinterest, if you ban one of us you’ll have to ban all of us.
We are joining @StudentsforLife and will post @LiveAction content and ensure we link through to their informative, fact-based website which you classified as “porn.” #LifeCensored #UnPinPinterest https://t.co/50osxjjrho
