Facebook Rejects Dads Photo Of Sick Baby Awaiting Heart Transplant


Well it seems Facebook have done it again, using their censorship policy in the most ridiculous way. This time affecting a little boys chances of receiving a heart.

Hudson Bond was born on July 18 and suffers from cardiomyopathy, he needs a heart transplant to survive. His father, Kevin Bond, created a Facebook page to raise awareness of Hudson’s condition as well as money for medical costs, and thought to advertise with a photo of his hospitalized son, currently aided by a ventilator and artificial heart. Facebook rejected the $20 ad, explaining that the image “evokes a negative response”—you know, like donating money toward a baby’s health.

 

On the positive side, the bonds have raised $35,000 of the $125,000 needed for little Hudsons transplant costs.

Maybe, just maybe, we can save a life on the strength of Internet outrage.
