Twitter Blocks Marsha Blackburn's Campaign Video Over Mention of Planned Parenthood's Alleged Trafficking in 'Baby Body Parts'

"Twitter shut down our video ad, claiming it's "inflammatory" and 'negative, '" the Twitter account for Blackburn's campaign said in a tweet.

Twitter blocked Rep. Marsha Blackburn's Senate campaign from promoting her announcement video due to a statement she makes about "baby body parts", The Associated Press reported. A Twitter representative emailed Targeted Victory, a digital GOP consulting firm working for Blackburn's campaign, responding to an inquiry about the restriction, saying that "if this [content] is omitted from the video it will be permitted to serve". Blackburn, who is running to replace the retiring Bob Corker, is instead trying to use the decision in her favor. Blackburn invited followers to "join me in standing up to Silicon Valley" by retweeting the video, which still appeared to play on the platform. "Thank God." The unproven allegations against planned parenthood never led to criminal charges, and the group denies any wrongdoing.

Twitter deemed the line about "baby body parts" to be inflammatory, in violation of the site's guidelines.

Twitter has blocked a top Republican representative from advertising her Senate campaign video on the social media outlet because of its "inflammatory" claims about Planned Parenthood.

"I know the left calls me a wingnut or a knuckle-dragging conservative", Blackburn said in the video.

"It is a double standard", Blackburn said, "and while they doubled down and issued a second statement today, they disallowed my video, I said, 'Look, I'm just doubling down on the fact that, yes, I am pro-life, and I stand by my message'". Sadly, Twitter and their fellow apologists for Planned Parenthood would prefer that people not be exposed to the truth about the evil realities of abortion.

"This is a pro-women, pro-baby, pro-life message", she emphasized, "and yes indeed as chairman of the Select Investigative Panel, the work that our committee did stopped this practice of selling baby body parts".

Yesterday afternoon, Twitter made the decision to censor a campaign ad released by Marsha Blackburn. "This is urgent", she wrote in an fundraising email to supporters, per Politico.

The claim stems from a 2015 video published by the Center for Medical Progress that claimed to show undercover footage of Dr. Deborah Nucatola, the senior director of medical services for Planned Parenthood, admitting the organization sells organs from aborted fetuses.
