It appears that Facebook, Twitter and YouTube are not the only social media sites that may be censoring pro-life content.

Pinterest, a popular website for sharing images, crafts, recipes and do-it-yourself projects, blocked content from Live Action by placing it on a list with pornography sites and other objectionable content, according to a whistleblower at the company.

“We have more questions than answers about Pinterest’s censorship of Live Action and the pro-life message. Based on the evidence provided, it appears that Pinterest intentionally added ‘LiveAction.org’ to a ‘pornography’ blocklist in an effort to suppress our pro-life content from being shared on the platform,” said Live Action founder and president Lila Rose.

The anonymous whistleblower told Project Veritas that the company maintains a “pornography block list” to remove objectionable content from the website. If a website is on that list, Pinterest users cannot create a pin, or post, linking to the site.

After hearing rumors about political censorship, the whistleblower said they looked at the list and found that LiveAction.org had been added in February.

Live Action’s pins typically include inspirational messages to pregnant mothers, ultrasound images of unborn babies and information about abortion procedures and Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion chain in America.

“Pinterest has targeted Live Action, I believe, because our message is so effective at educating millions about the humanity of the preborn child and the injustice of abortion,” Rose said.

She said they have received numerous complaints in the past few months about people having difficulty pinning their content.

The pro-life organization tested Pinterest for itself and was not able to create pins from its own website. It could, however, create pins from pro-abortion websites like Planned Parenthood.

The problems continued through Sunday evening. On Monday, however, after Project Veritas released its interview with the whistleblower, Live Action was able to create pins linking to its website, according to the pro-life organization.
