First Deemed “Porn then Detrimental Effects on Health and Public Safety”: Pinterest Bans Live Action Content

According to documentation provided by an insider at Pinterest, the social media company has actively chosen to block the content of Live Action, which has the largest online following in the pro-life movement, with over 3.3 million followers.

The video an undercover investigation conducted by Project Veritas, a watchdog group founded and run by James O’Keefe, shown below, features an anonymous whistleblower who is an employee of Pinterest, claiming to have discovered inside communications confirming that a top official at Pinterest intentionally added LiveAction.org to the blocked list of pornography websites in February of 2019.

What this means is that when Pinterest users attempted to create pins linking to any content from LiveAction.org, they were prevented from doing so. As shown in the video below, Project Veritas team members ran a test and were unable to create pins with links to LiveAction.org.

Live Action employees put the claim to the test and found that they, too, were unable to create a pin linking to LiveAction.org. Employees were, however, able to create pins using domains of other pro-life groups, as well as pro-abortion sites like Planned Parenthood. As of Sunday evening, Pinterest was not allowing users to create pins that link to Live Action’s website. Only on Monday, after Project Veritas reached out to Pinterest letting them know of the whistleblower’s claims and asking for comment, were pins able to link to LiveAction.org.
