Pinterest, a social media site with 300 million active users, has banned pro-life activist group Live Action from its platform, just days after a whistleblower revealed documents that purport to show active suppression of pro-life and Christian content by Pinterest.
Alison Centofante, Live Action's director of external affairs, posted a screenshot June 11 of an email from Pinterest informing Live Action that their account was "permanently suspended because its content went against our policies on misinformation."
"We don't allow advice on Pinterest that may have immediate and detrimental effects on a Pinner's health or on public safety," the communication read.
Live Action founder Lila Rose shared a second email from Pinterest support that said the account was suspended because of "medically inaccurate information and conspiracies that turn individuals and facilities into targets for harassment and violence."
