Earlier this weekend Twitter suspended the account for the pro-life movie ‘Unplanned’ on the weekend of its theatrical release, but promptly reinstated it amid fierce backlash.
As Cassandra Fairbanks reported the movie is based on the real story of Abby Johnson, a former clinic director at Planned Parenthood who had a change of heart after learning more about abortion.
Twitter just suspended @UnplannedMovie during the weekend of its theatrical release.@jack why are they suspended? You’ve banned both my & @LiveAction account from all promotions simply bc we’re pro-life. Have you banned this account because it challenges your pro-abortion bias? pic.twitter.com/TBarDx2sU4

Just like with Gosnell, television networks refused to air ads for the film. Lifetime, a network known for making movies about famous murders and kidnappings, said their refusal was based on “sensitive nature of the film.”
“The Travel Channel, Cooking Channel, HGTV and Food Network, each of which are owned by Discovery, also refused to sell ad time for ‘Unplanned’ due to the ‘sensitive nature’ of the movie, say those who tried buying air time,” the producers have announced. “Other networks that refused to advertise the movie include the Hallmark Channel and USA Network, the latter of which is owned by NBCUniversal.”
Despite the bias and censorship, Forbes reports that “the $6 million-budgeted flick, about a former Planned Parenthood clinic director turned anti-abortion activist, earned $2.72 million on Friday, setting the stage for a likely $7.25 million debut weekend.”
After reinstating the @UnplannedMovie account Twitter is now making it impossible for supporters to like and follow the @UnplannedMovie on their platform.
A Gateway Pundit reader sent us this video showing how Twitter is blocking them from following the Unplanned Movie page.

And it’s not just us… Twitter is blocking other users from following the page.
I WAS following @UnplannedMovie and just saw that I wasn’t anymore. So I went to refollow and this keeps happening!

This is criminal conduct. Twitter is now interfering with commerce.
If only there was a conservative party that defended its voters.
