Pro-Life Ads Against Biden-Harris Blocked Over False “Fact-Check”

With the presidential election is only weeks away, a conservative pro-life group claims that Facebook is “running interference for the Biden-Harris campaign” by stifling ads that highlight the Democratic duo’s adversarial approach toward pro-lifers.

According to Breitbart, the social media giant stopped Susan B. Anthony List from running ads targeting swing-state voters based on a now-retracted “fact check” from the Dispatch.

“Facebook has rejected two of our video ads in battleground states Pennsylvania & Wisconsin,” SBA List announced on Twitter. “They are using an inaccurate ‘fact check’ at The Dispatch to justify their censorship”

“Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are extreme on abortion,” the 15-second ad declares. “Biden and Harris support abortion up to the moment of birth, all at taxpayer expense, and they promise to nominate only pro-abortion judges. Biden and Harris: troubling ideas, disturbing policies.”

“Big Tech and the media are teaming up to run interference for the Biden-Harris campaign on what is a losing issue for Democrats – their shameful support for abortion on demand through birth,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “This is the latest example of Facebook censoring political speech and is perfectly timed to shut down SBA List’s vital digital communications as we work to reach eight million voters in key battlegrounds in the final days before Election Day.”

“The fact-check was published in error and in draft form, before it had been through final edits and our own internal fact-checking process,” the Dispatch wrote, explaining their error. “As a result, the viral post was assigned a ‘partly false’ rating that we have determined is not justified after completing The Dispatch fact-checking process. We regret the error and apologize to the Women Speak Out PAC. We’ve pulled the fact-check and lifted the rating.”

Facebook admitted in a comment to Breitbart that the ads had been blocked based on a retracted fact-check and said that they are working to reinstate the ads.

As of this writing, however, Facebook has yet to reinstate the ads or notify users of the redacted fact-check.

“The damage is already done,” SBA List declared. “Big Tech’s broken fact-check system repeatedly censors #prolife speech.”
