YouTube to Silence Abortion Dissent in New “Misinformation” Policy

   < < Go Back
from C-FAM,

YouTube’s new medical misinformation policy will censor any video that runs against the guidelines of the World Health Organization on abortion.

The policy specifically cites information about abortion among the examples of content it is targeting for censorship. According to the policy, the kinds of statements YouTube plans to censor include “claims that abortion commonly results in or carries a high risk of infertility or future miscarriage” and “claims that abortion causes breast cancer.”

Given that the examples provided in the policy are not exhaustive, many other claims discussing or raising questions about the harmful effects of abortion can be expected to be labeled as misinformation and removed by YouTube.
