Facebook has permanently removed LifeSiteNews’ page, for what the social media company deemed COVID misinformation.
The pro-life, faith-based, and conservative news organization was also recently permanently removed from YouTube for its coverage of the pandemic. In the notification email of the ban, Facebook claimed that LifeSiteNews published “false information about COVID-19 that could contribute to physical harm.”
The social media company also accused the news outlet of publishing “vaccine discouraging information,” which is against its policies. It cited an article posted on April 10, titled “COVID vaccines can be deadly for some.”
The news organization was not surprised by the ban, according to a post on its website. “Much like when LifeSite was removed from YouTube, this comes with little surprise,” noted LifeSiteNews Marketing Director Rebekah Roberts. “We have known this day was coming for months now.” “Facebook has been silencing any voice that goes against their beliefs and agenda,” continued Roberts. “Our LifeSiteNews Facebook page has been removed simply because we have shared reports of doctors, nurses, expert researchers, and even the former Pfizer VP speaking out against the COVID shots. We’ve also been tagged for the numerous articles we have shared making the connection between the COVID shots, and really all vaccines, and aborted baby cell lines.” “This all comes down to another case of Big Tech silencing free speech on their platform,” she added. “At this time, I encourage those of you who are still on Facebook, Twitter, and other Big Tech platforms to continue sharing LifeSiteNews articles with your friends and family, please!”
