Twitter took down a campaign ad from Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) that referenced “baby body parts,” the congresswoman’s campaign said on Monday.

The video, which can still be seen in Blackburn’s Twitter feed, was part of her recently-launched bid to succeed Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), who announced last month that he would not be seeking reelection.
“I fought Planned Parenthood and we stopped the sale of baby body parts, thank God,” Blackburn says in the ad.
A Twitter spokesman confirmed that the platform had suspended the promoted advertisement from the campaign’s account, though he emphasized that the original tweet remains up.
