Live Action’s Pinterest account has been permanently suspended for violating Pinterest’s policies on “misinformation.”
Alison Centofante, Live Action director of external affairs, tweeted about the incident Tuesday as the organization appealed Pinterest’s decision.
“LiveAction.org” is the only pro-life website included on Pinterest’s list of banned websites, Centofante said in a tweet. The nonprofit educates on, reports on, and investigates the abortion industry, according to its webpage, and seeks to inspire others in the pro-life movement.
Project Veritas, an undercover investigative journalism nonprofit, received and published information from Pinterest employee Eric Cochran, revealing the social media platform added Live Action’s website to a list of sites blocked for pornographic content. The whistleblower has since lost his job at Pinterest, and was interviewed Wednesday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” about his decision to speak out.
“I saw a big tech company saying quietly behind closed doors that they believe Live Action shouldn’t have a platform to speak…I want them to have to say this explicitly,” Cochran told host Tucker Carlson.
Lila Rose, founder of Live Action, told her Twitter followers Wednesday that though Live Action was initally put on Pinterest’s pornography blocklist, Pinterest later changed its story, calling Live Action’s content “inaccurate.”
Pinterest is a social media website that allows users to share or “pin” photos, recipes, videos, and other content they collect to their account. When Pinterest bans a website, its users are blocked from creating or sharing any content that links back to that page.
