Pro-Life Site Being Targeted By Leftist Deplatforming Campaign
The pro-life website LifeSite News is asking for prayers as they are being targeted by a leftist deplatforming campaign and have been alerted that their site will be removed by their hosting company.
According to an urgent notice on their website, their web developer was up all night working on temporary measures to keep the site online after they recieved the notice on Saturday evening.
“However, this is only a temporary solution. We are currently looking for a web-hosting company that will not cave to threats of this kind. We are also exploring legal options to combat Adam Flanders’ campaign of harassment as well as our web-hosting company’s extraordinary decision to give us 12 hours to move our site late on a Saturday evening. We will keep our readers posted,” the notice read.
Their web hosting company had emailed them at 8:30 p.m. on Saturday evening saying,“we are implementing our ‘SUSPENSION OF SERVICES’ clause…and giving you 12 hours notice to move your web site operations off of our servers…” LifeSite says that they had received no previous notice about the decision.
LifeSite is just the latest victim of repeated campaigns from the left to have right-wing voices removed from the internet and the digital public square.
Earlier this month their Twitter account was also temporarily banned from the platform over an article they tweeted in 2014.
A petition calling for LifeSite’s Twitter account to be reinstated surpassed 8,000 signatures.
