Earlier this month, Facebook was the first to remove a Planned Parenthood of Michigan post sharing drug abortion resources reported by the Michigan Advance.

The post, shared on the organization’s Facebook page, explained what a drug abortion is, linked to an article outlining online providers of abortion pills, noting that the organization was proud to offer drug abortion to patients, according to Motherboard. A Facebook warning shows that the post has been flagged as violating community standards and that the post has been restricted from being seen by the public.

Meta spokesperson Rachel Hamrick says the post was accidentally deleted and restored.

Planned Parenthood of Michigan did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but a similar message is live on the page of the organization.

Since the overthrow of Roe v. Wade in June, lawyers raised concerns about how companies like Facebook might handle abortion-related content on their platforms.

The issue of abortion pills — which are available online and legally in Michigan — has sometimes been at the center of content moderation questions. Shortly after the fall of roe deer, social media was flooded with people offering to mail abortion pills to others. Meta said the posts violated restricted goods policies and would remove such content from Facebook and Instagram. Meta spokesperson Andy Stone later clarified the platform’s rules, which state that content that attempts to buy, sell, trade, gift, solicit, or donate drugs is prohibited, but discussing the availability and affordability of prescription drugs is allowed .
