A pro-life leader is dismayed by the movement's treatment on social media.
Donald Trump's annual presidential declaration for National Down Syndrome Awareness Month has apparently caused a stir, particularly on Twitter. Kristi Hamrick of Students for Life tells OneNewsNow the pro-life community is shocked.
"Twitter, whether it's because they don't like Donald Trump or because they're prejudiced against the pro-life message, censored a picture of a beautiful little boy with Down syndrome," Hamrick relays. "It not only makes no sense, it should really show people how radical Twitter and other platforms have become."
Students for Life, Live Action, and other pro-life organizations have often been censored on social media platforms.
"If you can't look at the face of a beautiful little boy with Down syndrome and allow people to share it, there's really something wrong with your platform," Hamrick reasons.
Despite the fact that Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey assured a congressional hearing two years ago that his company does not ban information on the basis of viewpoint, Twitter flagged the picture as "potentially sensitive content," which is the same label used to block such postings as violence and nudity.
