YouTube Yanks another Pro-Life Exposť Video
Lifesitenews ^ | July 21, 2009 | Peter J. Smith

Posted on 07/22/2009 6:46:23 AM PDT by Pope Pius XII

The video-sharing platform YouTube has yanked from its site another video that exposed a Planned Parenthood's complicity in protecting perpetrators of child-rape. The video recorded by Live Action Films undercover investigator Lila Rose recorded staffers of a Birmingham Planned Parenthood stating their willingness to "bend the rules a little bit" and violate state laws requiring parental consent for a minor's abortion and mandatory reporting of child statutory rape.

The video in question has prompted Alabama's Attorney General's Office to investigate Planned Parenthood and its practices, but, according to Live Action Films, the student-based non-profit organization behind the exposé, YouTube gave them no explanation as to why they removed the film from their site or as to how the video violated YouTube's "community guidelines."

"It is an outrage for YouTube to arbitrarily censor a video that has sparked a state investigation and national concern," said Lila Rose, the 20-year-old President of Live-Action Films. "The people of Alabama and the public at large have a right to know how Planned Parenthood really treats vulnerable young girls."

Hordes of mindless anti-life feminazis go to YouTube and flag these videos as “inappropriate.” YouTube just goes along with that.
The fembots have networks through which they tell other of these videos. Then they take time off from their jobs and flag the videos. When enough fang-tooths flag a video, it’s removed.

This shows that Youtube is politically correct and that there is ONE issue that unites the secularist LEFT-WING in the U.S.-complete ABORTION RIGHTS. This is why Obama is preident and wants to get ABORTION(health)CARE.

This isn't arbitrary but it also doesn't have to be malicious (at least on the part of YouTube). Pro-choicers that got their knickers in a twist and e-mailed each other en masse about the video probably started clicking the "flag as inappropriate" button.

Anybody can click the button to flag videos as inappropriate. After certain number of people click the "flag as" button the video is automatically pulled. Most of the time an actual human being will not review the video too see if it should have actually been pulled until a pattern is established for a particular account having numerous videos flagged. Even then, the human reviewer is usually only looking to see if the account is a bad actor and should be deleted.

They probably don't even notice patterns of people flagging videos as inappropriate in a systematic fashion to shut videos out for political, religious, or ideological reasons. The system wasn't designed with an awareness of that in mind - it's somewhat blind to it. They depend on good faith.
