This story was updated on August 11, 2022, with a statement from Meta.  

“Delete Facebook” began trending on Tuesday, August 9, after Forbes reported that private messages on the platform were used to prosecute a then-17-year-old girl for allegedly having an abortion.

According to Forbes, the teen, who is being tried as an adult, and her mother, 41, were charged in July “with allegedly removing, concealing, or abandoning a dead human body,” which is a felony, as well as with two misdemeanors: concealing the death of another person and false reporting. The mother was later additionally charged with “performing or attempting an abortion on a pregnancy at more than 20 weeks and performing an abortion as a non-licensed doctor.”
