Twitter on Monday blocked Senate hopeful Marsha Blackburn's campaign announcement video over comments she made about the sale of fetal body parts, The Associated Press reported. Spokespersons for Planned Parenthood denied illegal conduct.
Twitter said Blackburn's statement in the ad is "inflammatory" and "is likely to evoke a strong negative reaction". Twitter said that Blackburn would have to repost the video without the flagged statement in order to advertise.
Blackburn and her campaign have urged followers to share the video.
The allegations were raised by a series of undercover videos released by the Center for Medical Progress that appeared to show Planned Parenthood executives negotiating the price of fetal body parts "per specimen". "I'm politically incorrect and proud of it", said Blackburn, who then listed her reasons for running.
Pro-abortion candidates and groups are consistently given free rein, while Blackburn and Live Action are subjected to the media's radical and pervasive bias against the pro-life movement. "I fought Planned Parenthood, and we stopped the sale of baby body parts, thank God".
The video became a talking point for conservative candidates during the 2016 USA presidential primaries and resulted in a Congressional panel-headed by Congresswoman Blackburn-being created to investigate Planned Parenthood and its practices with fetal tissue research.
