This is the position of Google-owned YouTube, which recently banned a viral video uploaded by Live Action that depicts the reality of both chemical and surgical abortions using animated drawings.
Former abortionist Dr. Anthony Levatino is the narrator of the video, which shows how abortions are typically done at the first, second, and third trimesters of pregnancy.
After racking up nearly 1.8 million views, this powerful video – which you can watch below now that it has been reinstated, thanks to public outcry – was pulled by YouTube for, you guessed it, violating the company's "community standards."
"@YouTube just DELETED one of our Abortion Procedures videos, which had over 1.8 million views, claiming it violated 'Community Standards,'" tweeted Lila Rose, the founder and president of Live Action, after the video was pulled.
"The video has been live since 2016, includes medically accurate animations of abortion & is narrated by a former abortionist," she added.
Live Action reportedly received an email from YouTube explaining that the video had been flagged for review and was determined to be unacceptable content for the YouTube community.
"You know what *actually* violates community standards? Abortion: The intentional killing of an innocent human person," tweeted the Susan B. Anthony List in response to the news.
After receiving lots of feedback from pro-life activists who questioned the company's decision, YouTube eventually reinstated the video – but not without a fight.
Some readers may recall back in 2019 when YouTube similarly removed a 2011 Live Action investigative video exposing Planned Parenthood employees who were caught making side deals with sex traffickers for extra cash.
Undercover investigators posing as sex traffickers were seen talking to Planned Parenthood employees about how to arrange abortions for their made-up underage sex workers. The footage was so sick and disturbing that YouTube came to Planned Parenthood's rescue by abolishing it from the internet.
Early on, YouTube claimed that this video was removed because it supposedly violated the company's policy on "nudity or sexual content." However, when Live Action appealed the decision, YouTube agreed to reinstate the video, providing no explanation as to why it changed its mind.
"Why do these 'mistakes' keep happening to us, @TeamYouTube?" asked Rose in a tweet.
That same year, YouTube admitted that it interfered in Ireland's 2018 abortion referendum by blacklisting a number of videos and associated search terms that opposed the legalization of baby murder.
Terms like "irish catholic," "unborn life," and "abortion is wrong" were all censored by YouTube to help steer the vote in favor of legalizing abortion.
This would seem to prove that YouTube does, in fact, manually alter its algorithms to promote certain agendas. But Google CEO Sundar Pichai insists that all censorship tools are managed "algorithmically" by robots, and that the company does not "manually tune" its search results.
There is no question, in other words, that Pichai belongs in jail for lying under oath and interfering with the election process. His corporations are acting against the best interests of humanity, and are in flagrant violation of the First Amendment.
"Dr. Levatino's story itself has a true biblical flavor," wrote one LifeSiteNews commenter.
"It is extremely powerful in waking up our nation, one which is lost in its disrespect for all human life. Having met and talked with this OB/GYN personally, he is unforgettable. May God continue with him in circulating his message!"
