Domain hosting service GoDaddy notified Texas Right to Life of intent to deplatform our website about the Texas Heartbeat Act, ProLifeWhistleblower.com.
Texas Right to Life created ProLifeWhistleblower.com in July to empower citizens to report violations of the life-saving Texas Heartbeat Act. Importantly, lawsuits regarding such infringements cannot be brought against the woman seeking an abortion but against those who commit the abortion or aid and abet.
Pro-abortion advocates tried for over a week to overwhelm the website with traffic and fake tips. When they failed, keyboard warriors harassed GoDaddy to take down our site.
GoDaddy emailed the Texas Right to Life IT team Thursday evening alleging we violated the terms of service. They neglected to specify how.
Texas Right to Life Director of Media and Communication Kimberlyn Schwartz responded:
“We will not be silenced. If anti-Lifers want to take our website down, we’ll put it back up. No one can keep us from telling the truth. No one can stop us from saving lives. We are not afraid of the mob. Anti-Life activists hate us because we’re winning. Hundreds of babies are being saved from abortion right now because of Texas Right to Life, and these attacks don’t change that.”
GoDaddy removed the site around 8:00 p.m. Friday. Our IT team is already in process of transferring assets to another provider that agrees with our values.
