Tell Twitter not to block Tennessee Senatorial Candidate Marsha Blackburn’s pro-life messages!
For many of us, social media is the first thing we check in the morning. Yes, we look at the news, but it’s our friends and the people we follow who really keep us informed on what is happening in the world around us. But unfortunately, social media websites aren’t neutral and some are trying to prevent certain messages and advertisements from being seen.
Such is the case with Twitter. Twitter has decided that pro-life messages shouldn’t be on social media –so they are blocking them. Tennessee Republican Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn is running for the Senate. In her campaign announcement advertisement she talks about being pro-life and fighting against the sale of aborted baby body parts.
Twitter has blocked the campaign advertisement due to Congresswoman Blackburn’s pro-life position. We need to stand up to Twitter and other forms of social media to say that this is unacceptable and that we demand they stop blocking pro-life positions! Sign this petition to Twitter now!
What’s the reason Twitter has given for blocking Blackburn’s advertisement? Twitter believes her statements are inflammatory and likely to evoke a negative reaction. The sale of aborted baby body parts should evoke in us a negative reaction! If it doesn’t, we should be concerned about the state of our moral awareness!
Here’s the language in the advertisement, “I’m 100 percent pro-life. I fought Planned Parenthood and we stopped the sale of baby body parts. Thank God.” That’s it.
This is considered an inflammatory statement? She simply states her position and what she’s done in Congress.
As the Associated Press has reported, “Blackburn was the chair of a Republican-run House panel created to investigate Planned Parenthood and the world of fetal tissue research that earlier this year urged Congress to halt federal payments to,” Planned Parenthood.
The fact that Twitter is fighting to silence a pro-life conservative should cause us grave concern. We are called by God to be the voice for the voiceless. In today’s society a primary way that we make our voices heard is through social media websites. Those websites cannot be allowed to silence us!
Please sign this petition to Twitter now demanding that they stop discriminating against pro-life conservatives.
In addition, let’s show Twitter that we cannot be silenced. Watch Congresswoman Blackburn’s advertisment and share it with your friends and family. Let’s show Twitter that instead of silencing Blackburn by blocking her advertisement –they amplified her message by getting our attention.
