Big Tech is cracking down on conservatives for criticizing Colorado’s new law allowing abortion on demand.
Dr. Ben and Candy Carson shared a screenshot of a tweet from Lila Rose, the president of Live Action, Lila Rose:
“This is Demonic,” the Carsons wrote. “Where are we as a nation when we find this acceptable? In times like these we must band together and take a stand for LIFE. I pray for the innocent lives lost, the unborn, and for the future of our country.”
Rose’s tweet read: “BREAKING: Colorado Governor Jared Polis has just signed into law a bill legalizing abortions through all nine months, up until the moment of birth.”
Facebook cited a PolitiFact article that claimed Rose was spreading misinformation due to:
“These reproductive health protections already existed in Colorado, but now they are codified in the state’s statute. This means that in the event the U.S. Supreme Court overturns the Roe v. Wade precedent, access to contraceptives and an abortion will remain protected in Colorado. The new law also protects against attempts by local governments to restrict abortion access.”
According to the Washington Free Beacon, Nikki Haley slammed Facebook for censoring the post and claimed they were doing it to push a political agenda.
“It’s pathetic these ‘fact checkers’ are twisting the truth when it comes to such an important issue,” Haley told the Free Beacon.
According to the Charlotte Lozier Institute, late-term abortions have been on the rise for the past five years.
“Colorado’s report includes the ranges of gestational ages of abortions performed after 21 weeks. In 2020, there were 35 abortions performed at 21 weeks of gestation, and 217 abortions were performed between 22 and 24 weeks,” the Lozier Institute report states. “The number of abortions performed between 25 and 27 weeks was suppressed, but six abortions were performed at 28 weeks of gestation or later.”
The term “woman” has been taken out of Colorado’s abortion law and it states that a “pregnant person” has the right to an abortion.
