A prominent pro-life activist President Trump highlighted at the White House this week is calling out media bias amid increased focus on the censorship of conservative viewpoints by big tech companies.

Speaking at a summit on social media censorship in the East Room of the White House on Thursday, Lila Rose, founder and president of Live Action, said that for four years her pro-life organization has been barred from doing any advertising on Twitter while Planned Parenthood is allowed to do so with ease.

“They told us that in order to reinstate our accounts we’d have to stop calling for the defunding of Planned Parenthood and stop sharing our pro-life content,” Rose said before hundreds of conservative-leaning activists, internet personalities, news outlets, and think-tanks in attendance.

The pro-life group that is known for its undercover investigations and for its criticism of Planned Parenthood, which had falsely claimed its clinics provided mammograms after accepting hundreds of thousands of dollars in funding from breast cancer groups, such as the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

Similarly, the group has been critical of Planned Parenthood for not offering services to pregnant women who want to give birth to their babies instead of having an abortion.

Pinterest also recently permanently suspended Live Action’s account, accusing the organization of spreading false information. Major news outlets then printed Pinterest’s claims as factual, Rose said Thursday. Abortion rights groups, including clinics, face no such hindrances on the site, she said.

Although Live Action’s videos are highly viewed on YouTube, the video streaming service has buried their content while boosting videos supportive of abortion, the pro-life activist added.
