A crisis of conscience appears to have changed some minds at Instagram after the platform censored a cartoon message by Adam Ford.
“It appears my post has been reinstated,” Ford said. “I have heard nothing from Instagram, but the comic is back on my account.”
Ford’s five-panel strip triggered Instagram censors hip with it when it comes to banning any messaging that could suggest abortion is murder.
“I am hardly the first person to espouse the belief (and hope) that one day society will look back on abortion with the same mortified disbelief we now have when we consider our country’s history of institutionalized chattel slavery,” Ford said.
“Millions and millions of pro-life Americans — of all races — see the heartbreaking similarities between abortion-on-demand and the forced enslavement of human beings.”
Ford noted a what-if: if he used a similar tactic for the pro-abortion side, if Instagram would have censored his strip, the same panels on slavery just applied to arguing abortion as essential to women’s equality.
“Which the left does argue,” Ford said. “I think we all know the answer to that.”
For the sake of ensuring the capture of the strip apart from possible future left-wing censorship, the Christian Action Network offers the full collection of illustrated panels including it’s vital application to today:
