Girl with Down Syndrome reportedly blocked from Twitter for using 'pro-life' pictures
The move appears unusual, particularly because the social media giant allows pro-life groups and users to post their content without any censorship.
A British pro-life activist with Down syndrome was reportedly suspended from Twitter temporarily after she posted "pro-life pics" on her account, the 22-year-old claims.
Charlie Fien, with nearly 2,000 followers, criticized Twitter earlier this week for account suspension, according to reports. The move appears unusual, particularly because the social media giant allows pro-life groups and users to post their content without any censorship. Fien said that Twitter allegedly blocked her from using the micro-blogging site for "more than 24 hours" while it allows other pornographic content to be posted on the site, without any constraints.
Hi Followers,— Charlie Fien (@fien_charlie) April 17, 2018
After more than 24 hours I’m allowed back into my Twitter account. Funny how Twitter allows willy pics and boobs. Funny how Twitter allows paedophiles and other scum. Funny how Twitter doesn’t like my Pro Life pics and blocks them. Here’s a pic just 4 you Twitter pic.twitter.com/KSqhUWume3
The young activist received international attention last year in March when she spoke to the United Nations about the rights of the unborn and those with disabilities, according to reports. Fein addressed the United Nations in March 2017 to speak out against prenatal testing to allow parents to determine whether their child could have Down Syndrome.
"Please do not try to kill us all off," Fein said referring to her own condition.
"If you do allow it, you are no better than the Nazis who killed 200,000 disabled people. I have a right to live, and so do other people like me,"
Fein received a standing ovation for her address when she said: "Don't be afraid of me or feel sorry for me. I'm just like you but different. I have an extra chromosome, and it's not stopping me from enjoying my life."
Charlie has dedicated her life to promoting of the rights of people with disabilities and the right to life of the unborn. Previously, while addressing Ireland’s Rally for Life, she received a grand welcome as she praised the Irish government for their laws in defense of disabled people and the unborn.
“Ireland is one of the only countries in the world where babies with Down’s syndrome are safe inside their mother’s wombs. In my country England, 90% of babies with Down’s syndrome are aborted up to birth,” she said.
