Twitter Blocks Marsha Blackburn Senate Campaign Video Over Anti-Abortion Remarks

Twitter Blocks Marsha Blackburn Senate Campaign Video Over Anti-Abortion Remarks”

The reference to stopping "the sale of unborn baby body parts" is likely a reference to Blackburn's time as chairwoman of the Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives. Bob Corker (R., Tenn.), who will not seek another term-tweeted out a call to action on Facebook and Twitter, asking her followers to share the video themselves.

Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) is running for Senate, but her announcement advertisement was scrubbed by Twitter because she spoke out against Planned Parenthood and abortion.

Blackburn's almost two-and-a-half minute video features footage of her shooting a gun, espousing her "100 percent pro-life" credentials and taking fellow Republicans in the Senate to task for failing to repeal the Obama health care law. A Twitter representative told the candidate's vendors on Monday that the statement was "deemed an inflammatory statement that is likely to evoke a strong negative reaction".

This means that the Blackburn campaign can't pay to promote the video on Twitter, but it can still be linked to from YouTube and other media platforms.

Following the release of the videos and just after the Congressional panel was formed, Planned Parenthood announced that it would no longer take reimbursements for fetal tissue donations.

The incendiary claim refers to Blackburn's tenure as the chair of a Republican-led House panel, created in response to a 2015 hidden camera video depicting Planned Parenthood officials describing how the organization provided fetal tissue to medical researchers. Twitter said that Blackburn would have to repost the video without the flagged statement in order to advertise.

Blackburn responded to Twitter's decision by calling on her supporters to join her in "standing up to Silicon Valley". Profiting from the sale of body parts is illegal, but can be legally donated to research.
