Citing the controversial nature of the group's message, Verizon previously blocked NARAL Pro-Choice America from the full features of the wireless carrier's text messaging network. Upon review of "dusty internal policy," Verizon executives have granted the activists the feature, which allows members to sign up for text bulletins by messaging the group.
NARAL, a nonprofit based in Washington, said Verizon was suppressing the organization's speech and urged members to call Verizon and complain about the restrictions.
"It's about people who specifically request to be a part of our text-message program, and Verizon is censoring our message," a spokesman said before Verizon changed its position.
