Apple Removes Pro-Life App From Store After Atheist Complaint

Oct 12, 2017 by Will Maule

Tech giant Apple has removed an app from a Pro-Life group from its store following a complaint from atheists. The mobile app enabled pro-life individuals and church groups to pray for Human Coalition’s abortion-seeking clients, who remain anonymous, in real time.

“In July, on the heels of pro-abortion media pushback, Apple notified us that they had removed the Human Coalition app from the App Store, citing violations of certain functionality requirements, Human Coalition told LifeNews. "However, Human Coalition spoke with Apple and demonstrated that not only were the cited requirements met, but that the Human Coalition app exceeded minimum requirements and functioned better than similar apps from other developers."

 “Apple was unable or unwilling to identify a specific improvement that, if completed, would merit the Human Coalition app’s reinstatement in the App Store. Instead, the effect of Apple’s requirements for modifying the app before it could be re-submitted for consideration would be that Human Coalition would have to completely overhaul of the app — a cost-prohibitive and unnecessary demand.”
