On second thought, we'll allow Blackburn's pro-life ad

On second thought, we'll allow Blackburn's pro-life ad

Her campaign paid to have the video promoted as an ad on Twitter, but the social media company on Monday moved to bar Blackburn from doing so.

Gee, ya think? Perhaps there are good reasons for social-media platforms to review political ads from outside groups after the exposure of Russia's attempts at pot-stirring in USA elections.

Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn is demanding an apology from social media giant Twitter after it blocked her Senate campaign advertisement that mentions the abortion industry's alleged sales of baby body parts.

As Abbott Labs (ABT) Valuation Declined, Shareholder Thomaspartners INC Has Cut Holding

"The million-dollar question" is whether Twitter's initial removal of the video was "an honest mistake", said Daniel Ausbun, a Kentucky pastor whose YouTube account was temporarily deleted in 2014, apparently over a sermon he preached at a previous church about Christian persecution in the Middle East. "I fought Planned Parenthood, and we stopped the sale of baby parts, thank God", Blackburn says in her video. Blackburn's reference to fetal tissue was "deemed an inflammatory statement that is likely to evoke a strong negative reaction", according to a Twitter representative. "Because we stood firm and Twitter reconsidered, and they are going to allow us to put my campaign announcement back up to push it out on their platform - which is exactly what we're going to do".

In January, the committee made several criminal and regulatory referrals to state and federal officials regarding Planned Parenthood and other groups that were said to be involved in the baby parts trade.

"This is our first Senate conservative victory", Blackburn boasted during a victory lap appearance on Wednesday's Fox & Friends when asked about Twitter's reversal. "I am a staunch supporter of reproductive rights, a staunch supporter of Planned Parenthood".

While Blackburn complained that her anti-abortion stance had been unfairly censored by Twitter, the Republican lawmaker also utilized the incident to fundraise, telling potential donors that "Silicon Valley elites" had attempted to "impose their values". Following additional reviews of Blackburn's video when she complained publicly about the initial block, Twitter made a decision to allow the "campaign ad to be promoted on our ads platform" despite initially determining "a small portion of the video used potentially inflammatory language".

"Our ads policies strive to balance protecting our users from potentially distressing content while allowing our advertisers to communicate their messages", the spokesperson wrote.

Gizmodo reported that Twitter eventually allowed the advertisement to be posted on the platform.

"I'm 100 percent pro-life", Blackburn declares in the ad. "This is just a continuation of the left trying to censor and trying to determine what people are going to see on their platforms".
