Twitter Blocks Marsha Blackburn's Campaign Video Over Mention of Planned Parenthood's Alleged Trafficking in 'Baby Body Parts'

Marsha Blackburn's two-minute video launching her campaign for U.S. Senate was carefully crafted to maximize both its offensiveness to liberals and its attractiveness to President Trump's most die-hard devotees. The ad was apparently blocked because Blackburn boasts in it that she "stopped the sale of baby body parts".

Twitter on Monday blocked Senate hopeful Marsha Blackburn's campaign announcement video over comments she made about the sale of fetal body parts, The Associated Press reported.

The move by Twitter means that Blackburn is unable to promote the ad as she had originally intended; this in turn means that only her followers will see the video.

Blackburn has served in the House for almost 15 years, so it's a bit of a stretch for her to run on Trump's "drain the swamp" message.

Blackburn's says: "I'm 100 percent pro-life". The conservative congresswoman from Tennessee mentioned the illegal sale of body parts by Planned Parenthood in the ad, and drew the ire of Twitter. "Thank God." This references the falsehood-an allegation has been debunked numerous times-that Planned Parenthood has been profiting off the remains of aborted fetuses.

After the undercover videos were released by David Daleiden, supporters of Planned Parenthood claimed that fetal tissue aids in research into Down syndrome and other issues.

Twitter deemed the line about "baby body parts" to be inflammatory, in violation of the site's guidelines.

Twitter took down a campaign ad from Rep.

Twitter immediately shut it down, claiming it was an "inflammatory statement" that is "likely to evoke a strong negative reaction". They edited the videos to make it appear as if Planned Parenthood employees were interested in this deal. The representative also got to repeat her false claim on Fox News, telling Brian Kilmeade, "Yes indeed, as chairman of the selective investigative panel, the work that our committee delivered stopped this practice of selling baby body parts". Rep. Blackburn (R-TN) joined the Todd Starnes Show today to discuss her senatorial race, what she thinks about Steve Bannon saying she should replace Corker, and how she feels about Twitter removing her ad.

Included in this vast category were all tweets calling for the removal of Planned Parenthood's federal funding, all tweets reporting on investigations into Planned Parenthood clinics, and any ultrasound images of children.
