Facebook NOT like buttonThe social media platform has rejected the advertisement of a pro-life organization that is trying to continue helping pregnant women under strict COVID-19 restrictions.

Illinois Right to Life has a program called Project Love, which spokeswoman Brittany Carl explains is set up to generate funds to provide for pregnant women in difficult situations.

"They're really struggling financially, they might be facing eviction, they may be facing their heat or their water turned off [or] their car repossessed, and so they reach out to us and apply for a grant," Carl tells OneNewsNow. "Every dime raised for Project Love goes directly towards helping these women meet their financial needs so that they feel confident and able to keep their babies."

So to spread word about the program, Illinois Right to Life created an ad they intended to pay for and run on Facebook. The social media platform, however, rejected it.

"We turn to social media because … coronavirus restrictions in Illinois have been very strict," Carl shares. "We haven't been able to hold our in-person events, which is normally a big source of our income. So we decided to try to move things to the online forum, and we were essentially met with censorship."

The pro-lifer calls it "frustrating."

With winter upon Illinois, the right-to-life organization is struggling to collect financial blessings that will help pregnant women who are struggling.
