A New York Times op-ed called on Facebook to censor posts by pro-life groups because they spread “misinformation,” which apparently means things that are verifiably true but that pro-abortion groups don’t want people to know. The link has some quotes from the "paper of record's" call for censorship and a response by Lila Rose, president of the pro-life group Live Action.

Incidentally, her group is also currently in a dispute with Twitter, which is trying to censor pro-life ads under their policy on hate speech and sensitive topics while allowing Planned Parenthood to run all the ads it wants. Twitter not only has an abundance of tweets, sounds like it also has a few twits around the boardroom.

    The problem with censoring is, once you start there's no end in sight, not to mention it's a complete disregard to our First Amendment Rights. I find it amusing that the only ones who want to censor, are those who abuse their rights to just about everything written in the Constitution.

    Who made the NYT the entity that decides what opinions are worthy of being allowed on Facebook? Who gives them the right to say that the Right-to Life organization should be silenced? Isn't a news organization supposed to report the news?

    Hopefully, Facebook will ignore the Times suggestion and realize
    Pro choice articles are very popular as so many people really value
    life-- this is an important right-- don't deny it---

    I have often thought that Facebook was censoring us in some this would come as no surprise to me. When I look at the Trending Feed every morning.....I am usually shocked if there is not at least half of it about the latest thing on some Conservative....and never anything good. Very little to be found there on what the Liberals are doing or not doing.

    I find it curious that being pro-life is considered hate speech. Seems to me it's just the opposite -- loving the unborn vs. hating the unborn. So who are the haters?

    Well, we have to give the liberals credit for helping the Pro Life movement stay informed and knowledgeable. We must be able to state our case at any given moment, and share accurate, detailed information. Lives depend upon it. Most Pro Lifers are very well-spoken, especially when compared to the geniuses who support PP, not to mention BLM or Antifa. I believe it's just a matter of time until Conservatives have their own version of Twitter, and a Conservative alternate to YouTube is already in the works. Again, thank you libs for inspiring Conservatives to aspire to even greater heights of achievement. Your opposition keeps our iron sharpened.
