Instagram Slammed For Hiding & Censoring Abortion Posts

Instagram is under fire for blocking certain posts pertaining to abortions.

In the days since the Supreme Court’s controversial decision to overturn Roe vs. Wade, several abortion rights advocacy groups have reported that their posts and stories have been hidden. In some instances, the posts display a warning that they are displaying sensitive content. In some cases, Instagram has asked users to confirm their age before displaying the content. In others, the posts were hidden altogether and unable to be viewed.

What most of the posts have in common is that they all slam the Supreme Court’s decision and speak out in support of women’s rights. They were all informational in nature.

This latest eyebrow-raising occurrence comes after the Associated Press accused Facebook and Instagram of deleting posts offering to mail abortion pills to citizens in states that restrict them. The Meta-owned platforms confirmed that they’d deleted these posts because they violated policies prohibiting selling or gifting pharmaceuticals, drugs, and firearms. However, AP strongly disagrees with this explanation, as they observed posts advertising marijuana that were left in place.

After multiple reports and some accusations of pro-life censorship, Instagram has said the issue is a “bug,” and they are working to repair it.
