Ok, I grant you there is no necessary linkage. But…
(1) Facebook’s cofounder has pledged to give $20 million “to political groups that support Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton,” according to the Washington Post.
(2) That, as of May, “Facebook employees as individuals have donated more than $114,000 to Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton this election cycle, by far the most of any presidential candidate,” the Hill newspaper reported.
(3) Facebook turned down an ad from a Crisis Pregnancy Center for reasons that no one over the age of 6 would believe are genuine.Here’s the backdrop to a story reported by WBFF, Fox News 45 Baltimore.
Seems Birthright of Bel Air, a Harford County pregnancy aid center, wanted to do what many organizations routinely do : pay Facebook so its advertisement would reach a wider online audience.
What could possibly be offensive about an ad, which depicts a sonogram image of a baby superimposed on the stomach of a pregnant woman, under the caption, “Every life is a miracle. If you are pregnant and need help Birthright is here for you”?
That’s what the group’s outreach coordinator, identified only as Atha, wondered as well. “It was really rather odd since everything in the ad seemed very positive and encouraging,” she told Fox News.
