Instagram hides some posts that mention abortion
WASHINGTON (AP) — Instagram is blocking posts that mention abortion from public view, in some cases requiring users to confirm their age before letting them view posts offering information about the procedure.
Over the last day, several abortion advocacy Instagram pages have found their posts or stories were hidden with a warning that described the posts as “sensitive content.”
The Associated Pres identified a half-dozen other posts that mentioned the word “abortion” and were subsequently covered up by Instagram.
All of the posts were informational in nature, and none of the posts featured photos of abortions.
