Happy Hour News
Guys, we’ve always been right about Facebook: Facebook is a malignant force, and nothing good comes from using any of their products:
Facebook turned over the chats of a mother and daughter to Nebraska police after getting served with a warrant as part of an investigation into an illegal abortion, court documents show.
The investigation, which was launched in April before the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, is one of the few known instances where Facebook has turned over information to help law enforcement pursue an abortion case — but is also an example of a scenario that abortion rights experts have warned will be more common as all abortions becomes illegal in many states.
The kid was 17 years old, a minor, and Facebook turned her in for getting an abortion. BEFORE IT WAS ILLEGAL!
I cannot stress this enough: Facebook makes money off of selling your data. Everything you do on that platform is data that THEY own and can use however they damn well please, including telling the police you had an abortion.
Delete your accounts, especially if you are a woman living in a Red State. Don’t send messages, don’t look up information that they can (and will) turn over to the police. Don’t trust them for an instagram moment.
(H/T my Twitter buddy @LMplusG, who is originally from Nebraska and is outraged at her old home state, and she’s right about that, too.)
