This morning.

Abortion information service Women on Waves writes:

“Twitter has disabled the possibility to link to the Women on Web website or to tweet a link to the website. Women on Web was founded by Women on Waves in 2005, to respond to the urgent request for help for an abortion of women in countries where this healthcare service is not available.

The work of Women on Web was recently featured in the New York Times Magazine and in the documentary Vessel (2014) about the work of Women on Waves and Women on Web made by Diana Whitten, also available through iTunes.”

Twitter censors online abortion service Women on Web (Womenonwaves.org)

    Is there a rival service to Twitter where users are not subjected to the whims of the CEO (like suspending accounts that retweeted videos of IS killing captives)

    Have you checked that the issue isn’t womenontheweb.org serving malware? Seems rather more likely than a deliberate attempt by twitter to block it…

        What’s a ‘cookie that breaches browser security’ when it’s at home? It sounds like you’re just using computer words :-P

    Well played..

    If I search Twitter for ‘womenonweb.org’, I find lots of people tweeting the link to check if it actually does work or not.

    ” where this healthcare service”

    It’s not a healthcare service. Fine, get an abortion but don’t try and make it sound like a hip replacement.

    Some douchbag graffiti scrawled this website address on the wall outside Kevin Barry flats near Constitution Hill a few months ago. Still there… It annoys me.
