“Trying to figure out why the
@UnplannedMovie account has been suspended. We need answers,” said “Unplanned” actress Ashley Bratcher.

“Unplanned” is the true story of a manager of a Planned Parenthood clinic who turned into an pro-life activist during her work at the abortion clinic.
Nearly an hour after Bratcher Tweeted about the suspension, sparking fierce backlash from Twitter users, the movie’s official account announced that it was back online.
“Thank you everyone for your support in letting
@Jack & @Twitter know when our Unplanned Movie account was recently suspended without cause. We are back and excited for the great response we’re getting in theaters this weekend,” it said.

Twitter is known for its censorship of conservative thought, and those who promulgate conservative viewpoints.
Right wing personalities Gavin McInnes, Laura Loomer, Roger Stone, and many others have been banned from the platform completely. Last week, Big League Politics reported that Twitter was looking into censoring President Donald J. Trump.
A major technology platform known for its censorship of conservatives is now considering ways to censor President Donald J. Trump, according to one of its executives.
“One of the things we’re working really closely on with our product and engineering folks is, ‘How can we label that?’” said Vijaya Gadde, Twitter’s global lead for legal, policy, trust, and safety.
She was responding to a question about whether Trump is immune from Twitter’s fascistic censorship rules, which mostly lead to right-wingers being de-platformed for Terms of Service violations. Gadde was conducting an on-stage interview with Amazon-owned blog TheWashington Post, which recently spiked allegations of sexual assault against the Democrat Lieutenant Governor of Virginia, Justin Fairfax.
“How can we put some context around it so people are aware that that content is actually a violation of our rules and it is serving a particular purpose in remaining on the platform,” Gadde said.
Despite the evidence to the contrary, Twitter still claims that it unbiased towards conservatives.

Texas City Stands Up for Life by Passing Pro-Life Ordinance
Planned Parenthood is not welcome.
The town of New Home, located south of Lubbock, became the 15th city in Texas to prohibit abortion on September 29, 2020.
The New Home city council unanimously voted for the resolution following state politicians and local officials discussing the idea of bringing back a Planned Parenthood facility to the city. New Home Baptist pastor L.J. Wright was a champion of this pro-life effort and hopes that the vote will change Lubbock’s city council decision to bring back Planned Parenthood.
“With the City Council in Lubbock seemingly balking at the ordinance while claiming to be Pro-Life, this puts the pressure directly on them,” Wright commented. “Every city in Lynn County should consider following suit with New Home, and get behind Mark Lee Dickson… I am challenging all of West Texas to stand up for life, and make their city a Sanctuary City for the Unborn.”
Mark Lee Dickson, a pro-life activist and director of Right to Life of East Texas, crafted this ordinance.
Texas Senator Charles Perry, who represents Lubbock, has sent a petition around requesting that Planned Parenthood be kept out of Lubbock and signed on a letter calling Lubbock to pass a similar ordinance.
“Passing an ordinance designating Lubbock as a Sanctuary City for the Unborn will help to continue the Texas belief that life begins at conception, while also protecting the safety of mothers,” Perry wrote in the letter, which was also signed by State Representatives Dustin Burrows and John Frullo.
Similar to the other cities who have passed such ordinances, New Home’s ordinance implements the abortion ban by imposing fines on abortion providers. The catch is that this ordinance will go into effect once Roe v. Wade is overturned. Providers will also be held liable for carrying out abortions, and families who have children that were aborted will now be able to sue them.
The Texas reported that “Waskom, Naples, Joaquin, Tenaha, Gilmer, Westbrook, Rusk, Colorado City, Gary, Big Spring, Wells, Whiteface, and East Mountain are the other cities that have adopted the ordinance, modeled by Dickson. The town of Omaha adopted the ordinance but later pulled its teeth, making it a symbolic resolution instead.”
Texans are getting fed up with the inaction of legislators at the state and federal level. So, they’re taking matters into their own hands at the local level. Similar to Second Amendment Sanctuary resolutions, these pro-life movements represent a growing dissatisfaction with the political status quo and are likely a sign of how politics will be conducted from here on out.
