McBAIN, Michigan, November 8, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Facebook has censored another pro-life organization’s advertising account.
Wexford/Missaukee Right to Life, an affiliate of Right to Life of Michigan, discovered the shutdown last month when they tried to “boost” a post. Wexford/Missaukee Right to Life president Teresa Fenby told LifeSiteNews the social media giant gave no notice, no explanation, and no instructions on restoring the account.
The group asked Facebook officials what prompted their hack but received only a generic response. Finally, they were told,
“There’s no further action you may take here.
We don’t support ads for your business model.
Please consider this decision final.” –Facebook
The internet phenomenon, which currently has 2.07 billion active users, only restored Michigan Right to Life’s account after media scrutiny. The Detroit News and Mlive ran stories on the Facebook censorship, and in the course of investigating made calls to the networking giant.
Then, without explanation, Facebook reinstated the account.
“We don’t understand,” Fenby told LifeSiteNews. “We’re a small group and don’t have the funding, so we couldn’t do it on our own. We appreciate the newspapers going to bat for us.”
