REPUBLISHING FROM THE LIFE DYNAMICS BLOG: (With permission)

The mother of a baby born without a nose whose image was banned from Facebook says their decision to ban her posts has been reversed.

In late March, Life Dynamics published the story of Eli, whose parents called him perfect even though he was born without a nose.

Timothy Eli Thompson was born on March 4, without any sinus cavities or nasal cavities – a condition so rate that it only has a one in 197 million chance of occurring.

Shortly after Life Dynamics published the blog on Eli, the pro-life media began to tell Eli’s story.

When the group Live Action published a story on Eli, Facebook told the pro-life group that it could not be promoted in an ad on the social media site because “the image or video thumbnail may shock or evoke a negative response from viewers.”

Eli’s mom, Brandi McGlathery, quickly posted a link on her Facebook page to the Life News story about her son’s image where she condemned Facebook, “Excuse my language, Brandi began her post.

“but I’ll be damned if Facebook keeps me from sharing my baby’s story! It sickens me that I can see pictures of half naked women, drugs, & negativity, but my child is too “controversial”. What has happened to humanity?” she said.

But, Live Action was not the only ones asked to remove Eli’s pictures.

According to reports, Facebook also asked Eli’s mother to remove his pictures.

In addition to Facebook’s reaction, Eli’s mother said she also received a messages asking why she did not have an abortion:

Eli abortion

That took a lot of maturity to not respond the way that the mom in me wanted to!” Brandi told WKRG.

Now, Brandi has reported that Facebook’s ban has been lifted after users complained and the story was shared an astonishing 30,000 times in just six hours.

Although Eli’s mother says that Facebook has reversed their decision regarding her posts on Eli, Life Dynamics has confirmed that Live Action has not received a reversal from the social media site regarding their ads promoting Eli’s story.

This is only a partial victory.

A pro-choice person on Facebook messaged the mother of a baby born without a nose asking why she did not abort him.

Brandi McGlathery, the mother of Eli Thompson, born March 4, without any sinus cavities or nasal cavities posted the hateful message to a Facebook page she created for Eli’s supporters.

The message suggested that Brandi should have aborted Eli calling the newborn, Ugly!

The hateful pro-abortion message read, “he’s so ugly don’t you wish you would have had an abortion…give that thing up for adoption.”

Brandi told WKRG that her message was tempered, “That took a lot of maturity to not respond the way that the mom in me wanted to!” she said.

Eli’s supporters responded with outrage:

What a rude and heartless girl. Eli is beautiful! Every life is a blessing,” one supporter wrote.

OMG, that is so disgusting! Eli is a gorgeous wee man and don’t let anyone tell you any differently,” said another.

Still others were very angry, “Wtf??? Sorry for the language but are you kidding me right now? She is a hateful person how dare her. She’s lucky I don’t know her name I’m in the mood to kick some ass right now! Your son is a precious angel from God!”

“I can’t even fathom a heart that ugly” said another supporter, “I love him so much even though I don’t know him and probably never will. My heart aches for you and him for all the mean, nasty, and mostly just plain ignorant comments you’ll hear. You will always be in my prayers.”

It really makes me sad that some people are that clueless, rude and ignorant. Every child is a miracle from God, regardless of their looks, disability, race etc……Much love and respect to you and your family,” writes another.

Others uploaded copies of messages they sent to the pro-abort in response:

I messaged her and will not repeat here what I wrote!! I just had to get this anger off my chest,” one supporter stated.
