Officials with Twitter have reversed their decision to suspend Representative Marsha Blackburn's advertisements.

Blackburn’s Senate campaign announcement ad was blocked by Twitter over a statement the abortion rights opponent makes about the sale of fetal tissue for medical research.

On Tuesday, Twitter reversed the decision.

Blackburn's Spokeswoman Andrea Bozek released the following statement: 

“It's a real shame that this censorship happened in the first place. While Marsha is disappointed that they attempted to censor her pro-life record, we are pleased they have reconsidered their decision. This is just the latest example of Marsha’s leadership.  She will never back down from standing up for our conservative values.”
