Facebook Delete Unborn Baby

AMERICA is the last place you’d expect this to happen, what with all those groups banging on about The Rights Of The Unborn Child. But, it did, and Mark Zuckerberg is to blame. Facebook deleted the profile page of an UNBORN baby.

Marriah Greene’s Facebook profile was deleted without warning -despite her having 260 friends.  The blame really lies with her parents let’s be honest they thought that giving their embryo a Facebook page was the best way to update everyone of the process of her mum’s pregnancy.

Father Matt Greene told ABC news:

“We weren’t sure how to tell all our friends the baby was coming. We’d held off on telling people — we wanted to make sure everything was fine with the pregnancy. We thought the quickest way to tell everyone would be to use Facebook.”

Most crucially, they ignored the bit which says you need to be over 13 to start a Facebook profile.
