According to GoDaddy, the gratuity website violated the web host’s terms of service. Texas Right to Life will have “24 hours to switch providers.” GoDaddy’s Terms do not allow users to collect information about people without their consent.
Texas Right to Life said in a statement that it will not be silenced. “Our IT team is already working on transferring our assets to another provider and we will restore the site within 48 hours. Come soon,” the group said.
