Facebook Censors Pro-Life Group’s Ads: “We Don’t Support Ads for Your Business Model”



By Micaiah Bilger - Posted at Life News:

Another pro-life group had its ads shut down on Facebook this month, adding to growing concerns about censorship on popular social media sites.

The Wexford/Missaukee Right to Life, an affiliate of Right to Life of Michigan, noticed on Oct. 4 that its advertising account on Facebook had been shut down. The group said it still is not sure why.

“I have heard that Facebook is run and managed by a group of biased liberals under the management of Mark Zuckerberg,” said Don Hoitenga, who manages the pro-life group’s Facebook page. “I can now believe the rumors as I have been banned from advertising on Facebook.”

When the group asked for an explanation, it received this response: “There’s no further action you may take here. We don’t support ads for your business model.” The email from Facebook also said its decision is final.

The Michigan pro-life group said Facebook did not directly inform them that their ad account was being shut down; they only discovered it when they were trying to buy additional advertising.
