Live Action founder and president Lila Rose said Google banned pro-life ads from the organization.
“BREAKING: At the request of abortion activists, @Google has just BANNED all of @LiveAction's pro-life ads, including those promoting the Abortion Pill Reversal treatment, a resource that has saved 2500 children to date...” she tweeted, along with a screenshot that flagged the ads for “medical misinformation” and “restricted medical content.”
Rose said Google banned the promotion of the organization’s “Baby Olivia” video, claiming the video contained “unreliable claims.”
Google also reportedly banned the organization’s ads against the “abortion pill” also known as “Plan B.”
“The now-banned Abortion Pill Reversal ads had been approved by @Google & running for over 4 months, spending over $170,000 & directing 100s of moms to the abortion pill reversal hotline,” Rose continued. “Abortion activists knew the ads were making a difference, so they had Google shut them down.”
The ad is aimed at women who regret taking the “Plan B” pill.
Rose said the blocks are targeted.
“They aren’t hiding their bias anymore: @Google’s censorship of critical pro-life information shows a blatant double standard & reckless disregard for human life & women's health. Google must fairly apply its own policies & immediately restore pro-life ads...” she said.
Conservatives on Twitter slammed Google for alleged censorship.
JD Rucker, a popular Evangelical commentator on Twitter, called Google's decision “demonic.”
“This is just another reason why it discourages me that so many ‘conservative’ sites willingly get paid by Google to run their ads on their pages,” he tweeted. “The company is demonic. Pure evil. And yet many in conservative media take their cash.”
Google isn’t the only company to target pro-life organizations.
Last year, Facebook fact-checked Live Action and stated that “Abortion is never medically necessary.”
