Twitter blocked Rep. Marsha Blackburn’s Senate campaign from promoting her announcement video due to a statement she makes about “baby body parts,” The Associated Press reported.

The House Select Panel on Infant Lives

Blackburn (R-Tenn.) served as the chairman of the House Select Panel on Infant Lives, a panel that investigated allegations that Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, sold aborted fetal body parts to researchers for profit.

The allegations were raised by a series of undercover videos released by the Center for Medical Progress that appeared to show Planned Parenthood executives negotiating the price of fetal body parts “per specimen.” Trafficking human body parts — including those of the unborn — is a felony in the United States. Spokespersons for Planned Parenthood denied illegal conduct.

Blackburn’s Senate bid

Blackburn announced last week that she will run for the U.S. Senate seat that incumbent Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) will vacate when he retires next year.

The announcement video

In a video announcing her intentions to run for Senate, Blackburn said she is “100 percent pro-life.”

“I fought Planned Parenthood and we stopped the sale of baby body parts, thank God,” she said.
