Once again, WordPress has added a Planned Parenthood ad to my blog. I’ve written to them about this three times already and threatened to leave. I think abortion is a sensitive topic and not the purpose of my blog. I want no part in convincing people to use Planned Parenthood, which plays with language to disemmble. There are no parenthood classes at PP. Call them if you think I’m wrong and in the comments below share the time, date and address for their parenting services.
Planned Parenthood is a shrewd organization who’s aim is profit and they make the most money from abortions.
They should be able to keep functioning through private funding and the fees they charge. Yet the government funds them and uses taxpayers money to do so.
It would be one thing if WordPress also had other groups with alternative messages advertise but they don’t. WordPress could easily allow users to opt out of advertising that conflicts with their beliefs. They promise to do so and then repeatedly break their word.
It’s just shameful. And it’s anti-choice.
I do hope this clear bias will wake people up.
It’s a pity WordPress isn’t neutral. If they wanted to be, they could.
Just last week, you promised to remove the ads I find offensive and condemn from my website. Now they’re back.
This is the fourth time I’ve written about this. You continue to post offensive, mature audience ads on my site. Your promises to fix the problem are empty.
Have you no respect for your customers? I should not have to be held hostage and pay more to avoid supporting an organization that I deeply disagree with. Why not put a check box so people can opt in to supporting controversial group that despite its name offers NO support for parents whatsoever?
There are plenty of people who will want those ads. I do not. I had to write you about this last week.
I just saw that WordPress placed an ad for Planned Parenthood on my site. I’m not a fan of Planned Parenthood and I would prefer a different organization get all this government funding for such services. Planned Parenthood just isn’t straightforward or transparent.
Wait, I’ll change that. I wish the government not fund PP’s primary service, abortion. I probably should speak up more about this. Usually, I’m rather timid on this controversy. I’ve got friends who are on all sides of this issue.
I do wish we’d defund this particular organization. I think we can help women in better ways.
WordPress, you should allow bloggers to filter what services and products they don’t want promoted on their sites.
I see that WordPress has retired my usual Koi theme and this Spirit theme that I use for the holidays. It looks like they’re offering a lot fewer themes. I sent them a question about this yesterday, but haven’t gotten an answer. I hope on Monday someone explains.
I get emails from them every time there’s a new feature or theme, but never when they take something away.
Why would they be so controlling? Just let us continue with what makes us happy.
