Facebook Censors Pro-Life Pages But Mark Zuckerberg Admits Planned Parenthood Has Never Been Censored

Facebook Censors Pro-Life Pages But Mark Zuckerberg Admits Planned Parenthood Has Never Been Censored | LifeNews.com
The social media giant Facebook has repeatedly censored pro-life pages and advertisements from pro-life organizations. But during a congressional hearing yesterday CEO Mark Zuckerberg admitted Planned Parenthood has never been censored.
Zuckerberg faced tough questions from pro-life Senator Ted Cruz. During questioning he said he was never aware of a single circumstance where the Planned Parenthood abortion business had its message censored on Facebook. Zuckerberg acknowledged that Cruz raised a “fair concern” but insisted that Facebook was committed to being a “platform for all ideas.”

“There are a great many Americans who I think are deeply concerned that Facebook and other tech companies are engaged in a pervasive pattern of bias and political censorship,” Cruz said.

He read off examples of Facebook suppressing conservative speech and had Zuckerberg reply.

“Senator, let me say a few things about this,” Zuckerberg replied. “First, I understand where that concern is coming from because Facebook and the tech industry are located in the Silicon Valley which is an extremely left-leaning place and this is actually a concern that I have and that I try to root out in the company — is making sure that we don’t have any bias in the work that we do.”

Cruz then asked if any pages from Planned Parenthood, pro-abortion Moveon.org, or pro-abortion Democratic candidates, had been taken down by Facebook.

Zuckerberg replied that he was “not specifically aware” of any of those pages being censored....
