Facebook Cracks Down on Pro-Life Film

A pro-life film on the story of Roe v. Wade — the 1973 Supreme Court case that legalized abortion — is in the works and will begin filming this month. The project seems unpopular in Hollywood (big surprise), but the producers complained that even Facebook is trying to shut it down. Even Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece, pro-life activist Alveda King  (the executive producer of the film), was blocked from sharing a link to raise money for the film.

“We’ve had a lot of difficulty raising the money in Hollywood, so we decided to do a crowd-funder,” Nick Loeb, an actor in “Den of Thieves” (2018) and co-producer of the Roe v. Wade film, told Fox News host Tucker Carlson. “We created a crowdfund site called roevwademovie.com and we launched on Facebook to try to raise money and even Facebook tried to shut us down.”

“They said we were spamming, they stopped us from sharing,” Loeb added. “I couldn’t send out our crowdfunding site to my friends or family, people who liked the site couldn’t share it. Dr. Alveda King, who came on as executive producer, was also blocked from sharing it.”

Facebook eventually lifted the block, but Loeb said the massive social media site has “created what’s called a ‘shadow ban’ where when we post what we want to promote, it doesn’t even show up in the feeds of the people that follow us or our friends, the people we like.”
