For Right to Life

YouTube is yet again boycotting pro-life videos, according to Students for Life.
Executive director of Students for Life of America (SFLA) Kristan Hawkins videotaped a meeting with personnel at a Freehold, New Jersey, Planned Parenthood organization that is federally funded under Title X. In an undercover video, one staff member admitted that some aborted babies are born alive and then permitted to die, which violates federal law. SFLA then posted the footage on YouTube. Hawkins adds details to the story.
"YouTube banned our video. We put up two versions of the video and they banned both," she explains. "So we have put it up with Eyeblast, so it's Eyeblast.tv. If you go to our website at StudentsForLife.org, you can see it there."
YouTube told Hawkins it dropped the videos because of inappropriate content. "If you go to YouTube and look up what inappropriate content is, it's something that has nudity, graphic sexual references, violence, or hate speech -- nothing which is included in our video," she points out.
Hawkins believes YouTube's actions represent nothing short of censorship. "YouTube's bias is clearly visible with these actions. YouTube is no friend to pro-lifers," she contends. "If Planned Parenthood isn't doing anything wrong and illegal, then why are they and their allies aggressively hiding videos from the public that show their staffers explaining their medical procedures to patients, the women they claim to care about?"
The video can be viewed at http://www.eyeblast.tv/public/video.aspx?v=e46UqG8zSU. An extended version is available at http://www.eyeblast.tv/public/video.aspx?v=e46UZuaGSU.
