San Francisco, May 12: Facebook has censored the page of an organisation that helps women obtain abortion pills, citing its policy against the “promotion or encouragement of drug use”, the media reported.
Women on Web, which is based in Amsterdam, helps connect women with doctors who can provide abortion pills if they live in countries where abortion access is restricted, the Guardian reported. It is a sister organisation to Women on Waves, which provides abortions and other reproductive health services on a ship in intertiol waters. Women on Waves announced late Thursday that the page had been “unpublished” on its own Facebook account, writing: “Women on Web provides life-saving information to thousands of women worldwide. Its Facebook page publishes news, scientific information and the protocols of the World Health Organisation and Women on Web has answered over half a million emails with women who needed scientific, accurate information essential for their health and life.” (IANS)
