In January, Facebook initially censored paid ads by Alveda King for her pro-life movie about the controversial landmark United States Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade.

A prominent conservative pro-life activist and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Alveda protested the decision by Facebook, calling it "another violation of religious freedom" and "very discriminatory."

"They do not want the message of the injustice of abortion broadcast and they are trying to block that," said King at the time to Family Research Council President Tony Perkins in an interview.

Soon after the protest, however, Facebook agreed to lift the ban, explaining in an email sent to The Christian Post earlier this year that the ads were taken down in error.
