Pro-life leaders were invited to a White House social media summit Thursday, amid claims of online censorship by search engines and social media sites.
"We are the tip of the spear as far as social media persecution goes," Cary Solomon, co-writer, director and producer of the pro-life film "Unplanned" told CNA on Friday. "We are an example of a business that was directly, monetarily hurt" by online censorship.
President Trump has previously met with the heads of tech and social media corporations, but "Unplanned" co-director Chuck Konzelman said, yet "what struck a chord" at the July 11 summit "was that idea that I think he's finally recognized this is all in bad faith."
Several pro-life leaders were among the 200 digital and social media experts invited to the White House summit. Among those also invited were several members of Congress including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), and Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas).
