Typically pro-censorship senators call for Facebook to stop censoring abortion content

In a letter to Facebook and Instagram, Democrat Senators Amy Klobuchar and Elizabeth Warren expressed concerns about pro-abortion content getting censored online. The two senators are typically pro-censorship and have previously called for the censorship of statements that contradict the mainstream narrative on Covid-19.

“We write to express our concern about reports that Facebook and Instagram are censoring posts containing accurate information about abortion in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson,” the senators wrote in the letter.

“As a result of the Court’s decision, it is more important than ever that social media platforms not censor truthful posts about abortion, particularly as people across the country turn to online communities to discuss and find information about reproductive rights.”

Towards the end of the letter, the senators asked the two platforms for information regarding the content moderation of abortion content: “Please provide a copy of all training materials or guidance provided to your content moderation teams about abortion posts in the current calendar year. For each, identify the document’s main author and who approved the document.”

Both senators have previously called for more online censorship, not less. Warren has previously asked retail giant Amazon for more censorship of Covid “misinformation,” while Klobuchar encouraged Facebook to adopt Covid “misinformation” policies.
