Nearly immediately, Twitter shut down the ad except for the original tweet from Blackburn's campaign account, claiming the pro-life part was "inflammatory" and would evoke a negative response. "We fought Planned Parenthood and we stopped the sale of baby body parts".
A Senate campaign ad by Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn was blocked on Twitter Monday because of a statement she made in the spot about the sale of fetal tissue for medical research. The video can still be linked on YouTube and other video platforms, but Blackburn's campaign can no longer pay for the ad to be promoted on Twitter.

What's more, the Blackburn development follows an awakening of sorts from Silicon Valley, in which it has decided that it won't do business with parties it doesn't like. But luckily for the congresswoman, Twitter gave her a better opponent than GOP elites when it blocked her campaign spot from Twitter ads.
"Most people who have been bombarded with Twitter accounts featuring swastikas and hammer-and-sickles over the past year-and-a-half are likely to find it extraordinary that an ad offering a traditional critique of the abortion industry should be especially incendiary to a sales team", Harsanyi wrote.
Blackburn responded to Twitter's decision by calling on her supporters to join her in "standing up to Silicon Valley".
In a video announcing her intentions to run for Senate, Blackburn said she is "100 percent pro-life".
"I am appalled by Twitter's attempt to censor my pro-life record, and I believe that the entire pro-life community deserves an apology and explanation for their actions", Blackburn said in a statement on Tuesday.
"This is a pro-women, pro-baby, pro-life message", she emphasized, "and yes indeed as chairman of the Select Investigative Panel, the work that our committee did stopped this practice of selling baby body parts".
The claim stems from a 2015 video published by the Center for Medical Progress that claimed to show undercover footage of Dr. Deborah Nucatola, the senior director of medical services for Planned Parenthood, admitting the organization sells organs from aborted fetuses.
