Human Coalition created a popular mobile app that sends prayer requests to church groups. It was released in 2014 for Apple and Android phones, and gives anonymous information about women who call its crisis pregnancy centers so that pro-lifers can pray for them. Recently, Apple banned the app because pro-abortion activists complained about it.
In June and July, media attacks on Human Coalition exploded. The “hit pieces and podcasts” mocked the idea of praying for women considering abortion.
Critical media also falsely claimed the HC app revealed women’s identities, even though no user is given any personal information. Despite 100 percent anonymity, the Slate’s Christina Cauterucci accused Human Coalition of violating people’s privacy.
Cauterucci called the prayer app “bizarre” and went to great lengths to ridicule both the app and its developers. The New Statesman’s Amelia Tait joined in, questioning the efficacy of “ridiculous … digital anti-abortion prayers.”
In July, the tech giant ripped the app out of its App Store.
This is not the first time Apple has supported a leftist agenda. It recently donated $1000,000 to the Southern Poverty Law Center, an organization which claims to monitor the activities of domestic “hate groups” but which has been accused of including legitimate pro-family organizations on its list, and defaming pro-life Christians by listing them alongside neo-Nazis and the KKK.
“So Apple is donating to a radical leftist group that some believe had a hand in inspiring violence, and now they’re removing pro-life apps because leftist groups are unhappy with there being anything in the app store that might run contrary to their very strict, pro-abortion narrative,” Brandon Morse a journalist for RedState said.
