Facebook Photo Policy Just Got Worse
Baby Grayson was born on Feb. 15th 2012 and lived for only eight hours. He was born with Anencephaly- a rare neural tube defect in which part of the brain and skull are missing. You might have just seen an episode of Private Practice which featured a baby with this defect. Grayson's mom Heather Walker recently shared photos of her beautiful baby boy- and had them deleted and was banned from Facebook for them.
As if deleting breastfeeding photos wasn't bad enough, now Facebook is messing with angel moms too? Support this family and tell Facebook they've yet again crossed the line!
Three weeks ago, I was banned for a photo myself. And before that, I was banned for sharing my own breastfeeding photo. It's infuriating and insulting. But if I choose to share my angel's photo and THAT was taken down? After I finished sobbing at the cruelty, I'd be screaming. I can only imagine how angry and hurt Heather Walker is right now. This is just so unfair. Facebook is supposed to be a social media site, not an insanely censured dictatorship. PORN is fine, but an eating baby or an "imperfect" baby is judged to obscene.
