Lila Rose, a prolife advocate and a rising young prolife leader, has exposed Planned Parenthood illegal activities through Project Mona Lisa.
Sadly, Youtube has been censoring the videos of her organization, Live Action. As of to date, they have banned eight of her videos.
Jill Stanek’s commentary over at World Net Daily is insightful. It can be read over here: http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=104699
YouTube allows almost any surgery video imaginable, like gastric bypass, gallbladder removal, toe amputation, appendectomy and brain tumor removal, and gross-out body parts videos like a buttock fecal fistula or peritoneal cancer – but not abortion.
Neither does YouTube have a problem with videos pertaining to the female anatomy like mastectomies, breast augmentations, hysterectomies or even baby deliveries – but not abortion, unless it is in the form of bloodless illustrations.
YouTube also seems to go out of its way to protect the abortion industry, particularly Planned Parenthood.
To date, YouTube has removed eight videos posted by Lila Rose and Live Action Films shot undercover at Planned Parenthoods in several states. In them Lila posed as a 13-year-old impregnated by her 31-year-old “boyfriend.” Videos show staffers trying to help cover up the illegal statutory rape and even offering to help Lila circumvent parental consent laws.
Live Action Films tried ever harder to abide by YouTube’s rule of maintaining privacy as well as its vague censorship catch-all: “If a video is particularly graphic or disturbing, it should be balanced with additional context and information.”
But it’s not only Planned Parenthood YouTube protects. It also provides cover-up for run-of-the-abortion-mill skanks.
Take Michigan late-term abortionist Alberto Hodari. Last year Citizens for a Pro-life Society filmed video of garbage retrieved from two of his dumpsters.
YouTube has videos posted of “the world’s biggest garbage dump” in the center of the Pacific Ocean as well as of a boy living in a huge garbage dump in India. YouTube even has video posted of a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation news team following dumpster divers on the hunt for food.
But CPLS’s video was of preborn human garbage Hodari’s staff illegally tossed, and for which Hodari was later fined by authorities, corroborating the video’s authenticity, or “context.” The video was up 10 months and received 25,000 views before being inexplicably removed.
YouTube allows graphic social justice videos pertaining to the Holocaust, slavery, the civil rights movement, Darfur and child sex trafficking. It allows graphic videos of wars throughout history.
But abortion, no.
As Monica Miller, head of CPLS told me, “How are you going to talk about abortion without it being disturbing? YouTube is a primary way we can compete in the United States with pro-abortion propaganda and have a voice.”
But social engineers at YouTube don’t want pro-lifers to have a visual voice.
