Heather Walker, Memphis Mother, Banned From Facebook After Posting Photos Of Terminally Ill Son


Heather Walker Memphis Mom
A Memphis mother has been banned from Facebook for the photos she posted of her newborn son

A mother has been banned from Facebookafter posting images of her newborn son, reports KCTV 5 News.

Parents Heather and Patrick Walker of Memphis, Tennessee welcomed their son Grayson James Walker on February 15, 2012, notes the Daily Mail.

The infant lived only eight hours after suffering from anencephaly, a rare birth defect where a baby is born without parts of the brain and skull.

To share his memory with family and friends, Walker took to Facebook posting the photographs of her deceased son.

Shortly after, the social network deleted the images. When the Walker's encouraged family and friends to contact Facebook in protest, the social network banned the mother from the site entirely, notes the Daily Mail.

Gizmodo explains Facebook's community standards prohibit nine types of contentfrom the site, including the following: Violence and Threats, Self-Harm, Bullying and Harassment, Hate Speech, Graphic Violence, Nudity and Pornography, Identity and Privacy, Intellectual Property and Phishing and Spam.

Facebook has yet to comment on the incident.


Theres a video as well here: http://www.kctv5.com/video?autoStart=true&topVideoCatNo=default&clipId=7301369


All pics were of the baby ALIVE. Some showed his deformity. Here's a link. I dont see why people are in an uproar about her pics if youre not her friend. Why are u looking at them?

I think she should have the right to post a picture of her child. Its her cherished memory of her firstborn that she wants to share with the ones she loves via the internet. Even if the child only lived 8 hours. Whats wrong wit dat? Facebook be trippin.

I don't have a facebook, but I'm pretty sure most of this has been and is still posted on the site

I don't think this banning is justified. That is her child. Her child is no secret.

If she had an abortion and posted pics of her dead mutilated baby, I'd understand. But this is not that kind of case.

I see both sides, so at the moment I don't really have a strong opinion

On one hand, the mother wants to share pics of the baby she loved and carried for 9 months. I've seen people post open-casket pics on FB before, not sure if FB removed the pics

On the other hand, not everyone is comfortable looking at dead babies. Sure you can say "don't click then"; however, I highly doubt it was in an album called "warning, dead baby". Sure it's friends and fam looking, but not everyone knew their baby died before they looked at the pic

As far as the banning goes for having people voice their outrage, I don't agree with that, but I do understand why the pics were removed in the first place

why was she banned?

sad. RIP and hugs to the family. My GF's baby lived only a few hours... It was horrible.

She had a big funeral and everything.
