Heather Walker delivered Grayson James Walker on February 15, and like many mothers, she shared photos of her newborn on Facebook.
These photos were especially meaningful to the Walker family. That is because Grayson only lived for eight short hours. He was born with anencephaly, a fatal condition that occurs when a major portion of the brain, skull, and scalp fail to develop properly.
After posting a photos of Grayson without his hat on, Facebook deleted the content even though it did not go against their community standards.
“Not long after, Facebook deleted them because of the content” Heather Walker told KCTV News. She added, “They allow people to post almost nude pictures of themselves, profanity, and so many other things but I’m not allowed to share a picture of God’s beautiful creation.”
The Walker family decided to fight back and re-post the photos of Grayson which resulted in Heather receiving a 24 hour ban.
