GoDaddy to Remove Abortion ‘Whistleblower’ Site
On Friday night, website host GoDaddy informed Texas Right to Life's "whistleblower" site that has 24 hours to find a new home.
The website was set up as part of the Lone Star State's new abortion law to report medical officials and offices who continue to carry out abortions after six weeks.
“We have informed prolifewhistleblower.com they have 24 hours to move to another provider for violating our terms of service,” a GoDaddy spokesperson told The New York Times and The Verge.
While GoDaddy did not have a comment when asked if the ban will apply to the group’s other online domains, the host did say that the site violated “multiple provisions” of its terms of service.
“You will not collect or harvest (or permit anyone else to collect or harvest) any User Content (as defined below) or any non-public or personally identifiable information about another User or any other person or entity without their express prior written consent,” Section 5.2 of the terms of service reads.
Conservatives on Twitter slammed the move.
“Babylon Bee CEO to donate $20,000 to Texas pro-life website,” Seth Dillon, CEO of The Babylon Bee, tweeted.
GoDaddy is no stranger to censorship. The site host previously banned Gab.ai, a social media platform that aimed to compete against Twitter and Facebook.
Meanwhile, other Big Tech companies have also taken a public stance against the new law.
A TikTok user who identified himself as Sean Black created a script to flood the reporting websites with false information.
"To me the McCarthyism era tactics of turning neighbors against each other over a bill I feel is a violation of Roe v. Wade is unacceptable. There are people on TikTok using their platform to educate and do their part. I believe this is me doing mine," Black told Motherboard.
