GoDaddy, the web hosting giant, announced on Friday that it was booting a Texas pro-life website that was designed to allow users to submit tips on illegal abortions taking place in the Lone Star State following the enactment of the controversial heartbeat bill last week.
The website was set up by the group Texas Right to Life, which was informed on Friday that it would be dropped by GoDaddy for violating its terms of service.
Prolifewhistleblower.com was established to help enforce the new law, which restricts most abortions as soon as a heartbeat can be detected, by allowing users to report cases in which they believed it was being violated.
“Last night we informed prolifewhistleblower.com they have violated GoDaddy’s terms of service and have 24 hours to move to a different provider,” a statement from the company read, according to Just the News.
The group was unphased and announced that they’d find a new home on another web hosting platform.
“@GoDaddy wants to cancel our website, ProLifeWhistleblower.com. Too bad for the mob: We will not be silenced. Anti-Lifers hate us because we’re winning. We’re transferring our assets to another provider and will have the site restored within 24-48 hours. Come back soon,” Texas Right to Life tweeted.
According to Fox Business News, the decision came after GoDaddy was subject to immense pressure from pro-abortion activists to cancel the site, and attorneys for the pro-life group say that they’re deciding whether to take legal action against the company.
As of Saturday, the outlet reported, the group was working with more supportive companies to get the website set up again and say that other conservative and pro-life groups may also be ditching GoDaddy.
“A number of people reached out to us and said, let us know where you’re going because we want to go there, too,” a spokesperson for the group said.
