Pro-Life Election Ad Censored by Facebook for "Misinformation"
Last week, a pro-life advertisement by Susan B. Anthony List which detailed Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’ extreme stance on abortion was blocked from Facebook. Facebook, in a message to SBA List, claimed that the ad’s assertion that Biden and Harris support abortion up to the point of birth had been found false by Facebook’s out-sourced fact checkers.
Both Biden and Harris have pledged to roll back pro-life protections and codify Roe v. Wade if elected. Roe v. Wade and its companion case Doe v. Bolton legalized abortion through all nine months of pregnancy. Pro-life legislation such as Ohio Right to Life’s 20-week Pain Capable Abortion Ban have succeeded in banning late term abortion in some states but all pro-life protections are at risk of being nullified if Biden and Harris are elected. Make no mistake: regardless of media attempts to hide Biden and Harris' extreme stances on abortion, they remain the most radically pro-abortion presidential ticket in history.

Amy Coney Barrett Nomination Hearings Recap
Last week, the Senate hearings for SCOTUS nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett finally concluded. Judge Barrett, who graduated top of her class at Notre Dame law school and clerked for the late Justice Antonin Scalia, answered a myriad of questions from Senators ranging from her personal life to her position on Roe v. Wade. The former law professor and mother of 7 answered all questions leveled at her with grace and aplomb and without notes of any kind.
Amy Coney Barrett is an incredibly qualified nominee and will be a strong, pro-life voice on the court. Her inspiring story of empowerment and motherhood and her dedication to the constitution make her an excellent choice by President Trump to fill Justice Ginsberg’s seat. The final confirmation vote on Judge Barrett’s nomination is expected early next week.
