Twitter Suspends Account of Group Trying to Recruit Pro-Life Democrat to Run for President

A new political action committee that hopes to draft a pro-life Democratic presidential candidate in 2020 said it was suspended from Twitter this week

Jacob Lupfer, a consultant for the Pro-Life Democratic Candidate PAC, said Twitter suspended the PAC’s account @prolifedem2020 not long after he set it up.

On Thursday, he posted a screenshot of their suspension on his personal Twitter account, saying the social media company did not give a reason for the move.

Lupfer told LifeNews.com that he still does not know the reason for the suspension, but he submitted an appeal to Twitter. He said he has not heard back yet, but he is hesitant to point to any political bias at this point.

Still, he said the suspension is discouraging because the PAC is just getting started.

“All of our contributions are earmarked for a pro-life presidential candidate,” Lupfer told LifeNews. “We have no budget for advertising, and we’re depending on social sharing to get the word out, which is why this is disappointing.”

The goal of the new Pro-Life Democratic Candidate PAC is to support a Democratic candidate whose position on abortion is more in line with most voters.

The Democratic Party has been alienating voters with its extreme position on abortion for years, and none of the current candidates in 2020 are even moderate on the abortion issue. The Democratic Party platform supports taxpayer-funded abortions and unrestricted abortions up to birth.

Polls consistently show that most voters oppose most abortions, including a majority of Democrats. And the PAC estimates that one in three Democrats are pro-life.

“Millions of pro-life voters are rightly skeptical of Trump, but have nowhere to go because of our party’s extremism on this issue,” the PAC says on its website. “A pro-life Democratic presidential candidate on the debate stage will force the party, the media, the pro-life movement, and the country to face a truth obscured by our broken politics: There is a better way to uphold the dignity of human life at all its stages.”

As for Twitter, other pro-life groups also have had trouble with the social media platform in the past. Most recently, makers of the pro-life film “Unplanned” had their account temporarily suspended, and then, after the account was restored, almost all of the account followers mysteriously disappeared. Twitter eventually restored the account and all of its followers.

Other pro-lifers also have reported problems with the social media company. Last year, Twitter temporarily suspended the account of disability rights and pro-life advocate Charlotte “Charlie” Fien, who has Down syndrome.

Live Action, the youth-centered pro-life organization known for its undercover investigations, also accused Twitter of censoring its ads. Founder Lila Rose said the social media site blocked their ability to advertise and told them they would have to change information on the organization’s websites if they want to start advertising again.

Twitter also refused to run an ad from the Susan B. Anthony List in 2017 because it contained the phrase “killing babies.” In the fall of that same year, it rejected another ad from pro-life U.S. Sen. Marsha Blackburn because she mentioned Planned Parenthood’s sales of aborted baby body parts. Twitter later reversed its decision after LifeNews and other news outlets reported about the matter.

THE GOOD NEWS

SALVATION

Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. SALVATION IS BY FAITH ALONE & FAITH IS BELIEVING WHAT GOD SAYS.

  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
