Facebook Bans Mother for Posting Photos of Baby with Birth Defect

Fox 6 WBRS, MEMPHIS, TN -
(WMC-TV) - A Mid-South mother has been banned from Facebook for the photos she posted of her newborn son.

Grayson James Walker was born on February 15, 2012. He was born with Anencephaly, a rare neural tube birth defect in which a baby is born without parts of the brain and skull. Action News 5 shared the Walker's story about their sons eight hours of life shortly after he died.

Heather Walker recently posted pictures of Grayson without his hat on.

"Not long after, Facebook deleted them because of the content" she said. "They allow people to post almost nude pictures of themselves, profanity, and so many other things but I'm not allowed to share a picture of God's beautiful creation."

Walker and her Facebook friends decided to re-post baby Grayon's photos in protest, and the mother is now on a 24-hour ban from the social networking website.

According to Facebook's community standards page, there are nine types of content that may be deemed offensive and removed:
•Violence and Threats
•Self-Harm
•Bullying and Harassment
•Hate Speech
•Graphic Violence
•Nudity and Pornography
•Identity and Privacy
•Intellectual Property
•Phishing and Spam

Walker says her photos of Grayson do not fall into any of those categories.

"I see all kinds of stuff, women's body parts, almost nudity, which is one of their standards, people cursing each other out, just profanity," said Walker.

Amazed at the amount of support she's received from all over the country, Walker says the photo is raising awareness.

"Just in two days, all these people have messaged me telling me how much God has used Grayson's life to touch them and to work in their hearts and to make them appreciate the children they have, that they have healthy children," she explained.

But not all messages have been in favor of the photos and to those people, Walker says they can friend her on Facebook at their own discretion.

"If you're my friend and you want to see the picture then look at it, but if you don't, just like any TV show or anything else you watch, if you don't want to see it you don't have to," said Walker. "But I want to share this with people just like any other person wants to share their baby or their child."

Re: Facebook Bans Mother for Posting Photos of Baby with Birth Defect

fuck facebook. the only reason I have not shut down my account yet is so I can keep track of what pictures of me my mates post. Apparently 'dont put this on the internet' does not mean the same thing to some of my mates.

not really, you posting the picture has touched them but if 'god' brings her some comfort so be it I suppose

Here is the slideshow. I was just on my way to post the story.

It's in the same story. Same source.

Personally, I think the pictures should be left there. If people choose to not look, that's their option. I think only people close to the family would have been looking until now.

I don't see a thing wrong with her posting pictures of her child. I've seen much much worse on facebook.

If you see in his opening post he has linked another thread which contains all those pictures you link to.

Heartbreaking story about the child, least he had some love for the small amount of time he was here.

If wondering about god makes her feel better, whatever, but considering facebook has photos of nude people and animal abuse on it, let the lady post pics of her poor kid. Put on your big girl, panties, facebook.
