YouTube Pulls Video of Eduardo Verástegui Denouncing Obama on Abortion
Life News ^ | 9/26/08 | Steven Ertelt

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- No sooner had the video gone up of popular Hispanic actor Eduardo Verástegui denouncing presidential candidate Barack Obama on abortion than YouTube officials took it down. The video sharing site removed the full version of the video, which showed graphic images of abortions.

It did, however, leave an edited version in place that contains the Bella actor urging Latinos to vote against Obama without the footage of babies who have died from abortions.

The Verástegui video has already caught fire across the Internet with more than 8,000 people viewing it in only two days.

It features the former Mexican pop singer and telenovella actor telling Hispanic Americans that Obama is pro-abortion and wants to pay for abortions with their tax money.

In the new video, conducted in Spanish, Verástegui, says Obama is out of step with the overwhelming majority of Hispanics who are pro-life.

“We need to put an end to abortion and political candidates play a very important role in this matter,” he says.

Verástegui tells viewers that Obama supports abortions throughout pregnancy, including late-term abortions, and has opposed a ban on partial-birth abortions.

Moreover, the actor says Obama “wants to finance abortions with the tax dollars you and I pay.”

The Bella star also talks about the votes Obama cast during his tenure in the Illinois legislature that would deprive newborn infants of medical care if they survive botched abortions.

He says Obama “voted on several occasions against a law to protect babies who survived an abortion and were born alive."

YouTube has repeatedly pulled pro-life videos from its service that it felt were too graphic to be seen.

Last week, it removed a video from the Kansas Coalition for Life that exposed Obama's pro-abortion views and included information about Obama's voting record on abortion-related bills.

Earlier this month, YouTube came under fire for blocking an investigative video from the pro-life group Live Action exposing the racist donations Planned Parenthood accepted.

In July, a short film by the pro- life Population Research Institute highlighting dishonest reporting from a pro-choice filmmaker was censored.

YouTube eventually responded to criticism and restored both videos.

Also, YouTube took down a video from Citizens for a Pro-Life Society showing an abortion center that was investigated for illegally dumping medical waste.

The full Verástegui video is now at www.durarealidad.com while the edited version can be found at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rx5A029sEPc

BS! They pull them because they dispute their message.

Let’s see, Google was started in 1998, but didn’t go public because the CLINTON dot.com BUBBLE was bursting.

They went public in 2004, while BUSH was president and have grown to one of the most valuable companies in the world, all while BUSH was in office. They are worth far more than most of the dot.coms that went public under Clinton (like Yahoo).

You would think that the simple facts of their success would give them a clue.

Anyone who HAS seen graphic images of aborted fetuses and still supports the practice, is morally deficient, IMHO.

These liberals who support abortion and especially late term abortion are just one step from allowing the government dictate who can get pregnant and how many children a couple can have. They have been promoting this pap of a "woman's choice" and a "woman's right" for years just so that people will become accustomed to the idea of aborting children.

Next they will be dictating the "government's choice" and the government will select who can live and who cannot. They must be stopped!

And people who are passionate about life, particularly the parents who know they will have a child with special needs, won't have any say so at all when they are forced to abort their babies. It is all part of the Marxist plan of Obama and Obamanians. Our country is being torn apart by these crazed people. I see tears on the faces of our forefathers.

God help us in a possible Obama tyranny.

Don’t forget that socialist dictators like Hitler, Mugabe, and Chavez were all “elected” by the exact same techniques as Obama uses: brownshirt thuggery, intimidation, inhibition of free speech, lying media, etc.

This is the most important election in MY lifetime.

“America Will Not Reject Abortion Until America Sees Abortion
Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director, Priests for Life.

I firmly believe that Fr. Frank is correct.

Please watch the video available on-line called Hard Truth at Abortion Videos . It is perhaps the most powerful film ever produced on abortion. Actual footage of living, in-utero children and their aborted peers tell the hard truth about abortion in ways "just words" never will. Hard Truth packs such unprecedented power that viewers can scarcely watch without being profoundly affected. In total, the film is only nine minutes long, and except for the introduction, there is no narration.

Then go to http://www.priestsforlife.org/resources/abortionimages/index.htm , and see the horrible reality of abortion via color photographs.

I also highly recommend reading Abortion: the Silent Holocaust. It was written by Fr. John Powell, S.J. (Click on “abortion: books” then scroll.) I believe it is one of the most important books on the subject ever written. This book has overwhelming importance for readers from high-school age onward, as well as adult study. The author speaks directly to the reader as few writers can. He takes you along his personal journeys from his studies in Germany and tour of the death camp in Dachau, through his work in the pro-life movement.

Comprehensive education of adults, and more importantly school students, is
THE MISSING KEY OF THE PRO-LIFE MOVEMENT

Ignorance is the greatest weapon of the pro-abortion side.

The link I posted was from the 10 minute graphic video, not the editied 5 minute non-graphic one. I don’t know of a longer version.

I think every woman who contemplates an abortion should have to watch this....God forgive us! How can ANYONE with a brain think that a woman has a “right” to do this?!

Obama may just be the antichrist.

You shot me through my old heart! ... The video at durarealidad is so graphic and true, it breaks my heart that people, fellow human beings can defend this evil slaughter.

When the portion displaying the body parts of little ones ripped apart in the womb came up, through my tears and rage I was reminded that the very killing by neglect method Barack Obama tried to protect from being outlawed was becoming a popular way to kill these little alive children so the ripping apart wouldn't damage the parts for harvesting to tissue suppliers! Evil, simply, utterly EVIL!

Pardon my momentary distraction from what really matters.

Bella was a FANTASTIC movie, with such a life affirming
message!

Prayers Mr. V continues in his mission to promote
legal protection for our pre-born brothers and sisters.

I saw the unedited version wednesday. 40 days for life started the 40 days of prayer and fasting on Wednesday, too. Join us. Pray for the overturn of all false death rights, for the total life rights of the unborn from conception and for God to have mercy on our nation that deserves His righteous judgment.

Then they've proved his point - in the video, he said if the images of abortion are too ugly to see, then why are we tolerating it at all?

I only saw the edited version; even so, very compelling.
