David Ripley: Social Media Giants Clamp Down on Pro-Life Movement

May 9th, 2018 by Halli

Idaho Chooses Life

Now that the engineers at social media giants like Google, Facebook and YouTube have achieved empire – the natural Leftist impulse to control freedom can be given expression. There have been staggering revelations over the past year detailing the work of social engineers like Zuckerberg to use their control of the internet to shape the politics and culture of America.

Now more evidence of a specific attack on the pro-Life movement has emerged. The folks at YouTube have just shut down an account which sought to inform women that there is a chance to reverse a chemical abortion. They declared information about Abortion Pill Reversal to be “dangerous”. Almost the exact words used by Planned Parenthood this past session when they opposed an Idaho law this past session requiring information to be included in the state’s Informed Consent brochure.

Idaho Chooses Life itself has come under censorship during this primary election by Facebook.

Our endorsed candidate for state Treasurer, Julie Ellsworth, wanted to link an ad to our Facebook page using a photo from our Life Chain event. The photo showed a lovely family holding a sign shaped like a traffic STOP sign. Across the front were the words, “Stop Abortion Now”. The censors at Facebook refused to publish the photo because the words were found to be “offensive to community standards”.

Of course, we’re all too busy right now with election work to start a counter-fight with the behemoth that is Facebook. So the photo was changed to accommodate the sensibilities of some twenty-year-old, pro-abort technoid in California. Not the end of the world, to be sure. But of substantial concern.

Conservatives must soon come to grips with the immense power now being brandished by Google, Zuckerberg and the partners at Twitter. The false news and tightening censorship spewing from these shops pose a real challenge to the Republic.

Because conservatives have a passion for freedom – particularly freedom of expression and thought – we will have to look towards encouraging the development of alternative internet-based vehicles to share ideas and communicate with our neighbors. Perhaps investors can be found to help ignite an alternative to Facebook – an alternative which cherishes the First Amendment.

In the meantime, we must lament the tragedy of Google’s work to deprive women and girls in crisis of real-world alternatives to chemical abortion.
