Facebook apologizes for rejecting pro-life ad


A pro-life ad by the Susan B. Anthony List in support of Marsha Blackburn was rejected by Facebook. The digital giant later apologized and said: “This ad does not violate Facebook’s policies and should never have been rejected. We’re sorry for this mistake.”

But Blackburn wasn’t buying the apology.

“Facebook’s decision to take down this ad is just another example of the liberal elites of Silicon Valley censoring conservative ideas online,” Blackburn said in a statement. “We have repeatedly seen a demonstrated bias against conservatives and it needs to stop.”

In 2017, Twitter blocked a video of Blackburn announcing her campaign for U.S. Senate over “inflammatory language.”
