Due to Facebook providing Nebraska police with access to a teenager’s direct messages (DMs) so they could charge her with having an abortion, some ladies are urging others to deactivate their Facebook accounts.

Forbes broke the news on Tuesday that Facebook had given Nebraska police access to a teen’s direct messages so they could prosecute her for having an abortion.

Her Facebook conversations were collected by law enforcement using a search warrant, and she is currently charged with violating state law by allegedly aborting a pregnancy, according to the report.

Celeste Burgess and Jessica Burgess

A trial in Madison County District Court is scheduled for 17-year-old Celeste Burgess and her mother Jessica Burgess on allegations that they violated a state law prohibiting abortions after 20 weeks. They are both being tried as adults.

In July, Celeste and her mother were charged with removing, hiding, or dumping a dead corpse as well as hiding the death of another person.

According to the report, even after Celeste informed the police that she had experienced a miscarriage, they carried out their investigation and obtained a search order from Facebook to examine Celeste and Jessica’s Facebook accounts.

According to Forbes story, conversations between the mother and daughter were later discovered. The messages are said to have described how Celeste supposedly had a self-managed abortion with Jessica’s assistance.

How did Nebraska Police find out?

The Norfolk Police Department, according to the report seen by Mandy News, received information that Celeste miscarried in April at 23 weeks of pregnancy and surreptitiously buried the fetus with the assistance of her mother.

Several users have begun deleting Facebook and its other platforms as a result of the revelation.

The person who broke the story initially via Twitter, Olivia Julianna, urged all women to remove their Facebook accounts.

More updates soon.
