The topic of abortion certainly is one that carries a lot of debate. As does the movie “Unplanned”.
But rather than debate the topic of abortion we wanted to bring up the topic of censorship.
Many of you may have seen the movie “Unplanned” which tells the story of Abby Johnson, a young clinic director for Planned Parenthood who ultimately becomes an anti-abortion activist. It’s an interesting movie.
But the making of the movie is an interesting story in itself.
The writer and directors of the movie have faced quite a bit of opposition in marketing this film. So much so they testified at a Congressional Committee meeting on “Technological Censorship and the Public Discourse”.
Their testimony includes reports of being blocked or suspended from Google Ads, Twitter, and other social media.
The NPAA gave them an “R” rating limiting their ability to market to a Christian base. These are just naming a few examples of the challenges they faced. Their testimony was very interesting. We encourage you to check out the link “Technological Censorship and the Public Discourse”. It is quite enlightening.
We are supposed to be a country who supports free speech. Yet, here we find big tech companies trying to restrict our rights. How is this right or legal? What they are doing is censorship and seems discriminatory. Our moral compass needs to get back on course.
This type of censorship is an insult to the intelligence of American adults.
We should always be free to hear both sides of a debate and be free to make our own educated decisions on what we choose to believe in. Or what we want to watch at a movie.
That’s what makes America great. We choose which movie ticket we want to purchase. We choose what we want to believe in.
