A member of Live Action News, the publishing arm of the pro-life group Live Action, recently discovered that their website was blocked from in-flight viewing on United Airlines flights. But the websites for both Planned Parenthood and NARAL Pro-Choice America were accessible on the flight.

Planned Parenthood applauded United for blocking the pro-life website.

Lila Rose, the founder of Live Action, took to Twitter to ask the company why her organization’s website is blocked.

But United Airlines said that Live Action News was blocked in error by a third-party wi-fi provider, and the block will be removed.

“Planned Parenthood’s enthusiastic backing of the shutting out of Live Action's news website shouldn’t surprise anyone," Rose told TheBlaze. "The abortion chain has sought to silence and smear anyone who doesn't agree with its extreme ideology, as it's shown with its recent lawsuit against the activists who exposed its baby parts scandal. It has even censored its own supporters for not backing its endorsed candidate, Hillary Clinton, by deleting their comments on social media.” — Follow Kate Scanlon (@kgscanlon) on Twitter
