PURGE AT PINTEREST: Media Website Labels Pro-Life Group as ‘Porn,’ Scrubs Bible Verses in Liberal Purge

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.12.19

An explosive exposé published by James O’Keefe and Project Veritas this week shed new light on the stunning lengths social media platforms are willing to go to crackdown on “conservative” content; even labeling a leading pro-life advocacy group as a “porn website.”

New documents obtained by Project Veritas from one industry whistleblower shows media giant Pinterest -with over 300 million users across the globe- labeled pro-life activist organization ‘Live Action’ under its “pornography” category; claiming the group was distributing “misinformation related to conspiracies and anti-vaccination advice.”

Live Action is one of the leading pro-life groups educating the nation about abortion and the dignity of life, with over 3 million followers online.

Their account is now permanently suspended. The whistleblower was subsequently identified by Pinterest and fired from the company.

“Religious content is allowed on Pinterest, and many people use our service to search for and save Pins inspired by their beliefs. To protect our users from being targeted based on personal characteristics such as their religion, we have policies in place so that ads and recommendations don’t appear alongside certain terms,” said a statement released by Pinterest.

“We have more questions than answers about Pinterest’s censorship of Live Action and the pro-life message. Based on the evidence provided, it appears that Pinterest intentionally added ‘LiveAction.org’ to a ‘pornography’ blocklist in an effort to suppress our pro-life content from being shared on the platform,” said Live Action founder and President Lila Rose.

“Pinterest trying to secretly and dishonestly censor free expression is every Pinterester’s worst nightmare. We urge them to allow free expression on their platform and to stop censoring Live Action’s pro-life message,” she added.
