Things aren’t going well for Mark Zuckerberg these days.
He’s managing to turn the whole country against him.
Now he’s in hot water with Democrats for this shocking reason.
The Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade sending the abortion issue back to the states to decide.
After the Court handed Democrats this massive defeat, they’ve been scrambling for ways to get around the decision.
One of the solutions the Left began offering up were so-called abortion pills to get around the law in states that had abortion bans.
This despite the fact the pills were now banned by law in many of these states.
Leftists took to social media to offer to send abortion pills to women in red states.
The two biggest social media platforms owned by Mark Zuckerberg’s Meta company, Facebook and Instagram, were flooded with offers from blue state liberals to send abortion pills to women in states where abortion was expected to be made illegal.
In a shocking move, Facebook and Instagram dropped the hammer on these ads and anyone offering up the pills on Facebook and Instagram found their posts deleted or restricted with some users banned for making the offer.
To some degree, it amounts to leftists finally getting a taste of their own censorship medicine.
Of course, in this case it’s likely the social media platforms attempting to head off a legal quagmire rather than censoring those they disagree with politically.
Liberals were outraged that the famously left-wing Meta owned social media platforms were silencing them.
The shoe was on the other foot for liberals after years of heavy-handed censorship against conservatives by Big Tech.
“It’s unconscionable that the social media platforms’ parent company, Meta, made it difficult to access vital health information so soon after the court’s decision,” whined liberal professor Kara Alaimo.
But the leftists trying to offer up abortion pills on social media were not only violating Meta’s policies but federal and state law.
Abortion pills are prescribed by a doctor making it illegal to give them to someone else.
Facebook’s policy states: “To encourage safety and compliance with common legal restrictions, we prohibit attempts by individuals, manufacturers and retailers to purchase, sell or trade non-medical drugs, pharmaceutical drugs and marijuana.”
Meta spokesman Andy Stone pointed this out to an angry journalist with the liberal Huffington Post on social media.
“Content that attempts to buy, sell, trade, gift, request or donate pharmaceuticals is not allowed. Content that discusses the affordability and accessibility of prescription medication is allowed,” Stone noted.
Trying to give someone an abortion pill over social media is no different than trying to give someone a prescription pain killer.
Prescription medication can only be prescribed by a doctor.
The late Rush Limbaugh used to say that abortion was the holy sacrament for the radical Left.
Liberals are trying to use Facebook to illegally send abortion pills because they refuse to accept the loss the Supreme Court handed them.
They’re desperately trying to keep abortion on demand going.
After angering conservatives with his ridiculous censorship, Mark Zuckerberg will have to deal with discontent from leftists as he takes fire from all sides.
