(LIFENEWS) — Tens of thousands of people complained about a Facebook page that promotes the notion that the Virgin Mary should have had an abortion. Titled “Virgin Mary Should’ve Aborted,” the administrator of the page claims to “explain what really happened in the biblical times, since the bible is full of lies.”
After a massive campaign to contact Facebook and a corresponding hashtag campaign on Twitter, it appears the page has been taken down.
“Virgin Mary Should’ve Aborted,” which had at its peak about 6,800 likes, was taken down Wednesday, likely in response to complaints from Christian activists.
The effort against the page was spearheaded by the Facebook group “Catholics & Protestants Against FB Religious Discrimination.”
