American Life League video yanked by YouTube

.- On Monday morning, American Life League (ALL) was informed by YouTube that one of its exposé videos on Planned Parenthood was evicted from their for its “inappropriate nature.” Strangely enough, the ad that the ALL was criticizing remains on YouTube.

The banned report explains how a Planned Parenthood commercial helps encourage recreational sex, which ALL’s Michael Hichborn told CNA, “helps their bottom line”.

“All we did in our video report was show a couple of clips from Planned Parenthood’s ‘Mile High’ ad and illustrate how it was nothing more than a part of Planned Parenthood’s effort to encourage recreational sex,” said Jim Sedlak, vice president of American Life League. “If there was anything inappropriate in our report, it came from Planned Parenthood’s ad, and yet their ad remains while ours is removed.”

The "Mile High” ad features a homosexual flight attendant named Stephen who cruises the aisles, showering young passengers with contraceptives. The commercial closes with the cabin lights dimming, party music blaring, Stephen sitting on the pilot's lap and saying, “On behalf of Planned Parenthood airlines you are now free to make sweet, sweet love.”

The e-mail sent to American Life League said, “After being flagged by members of the YouTube community and reviewed by YouTube staff, the video below has been removed due to its inappropriate nature.”

“Our video didn’t contain anything even remotely close to YouTube’s guidelines for inappropriate material,” said Sedlak. 

According to YouTube’s Community Guidelines, videos that contain “pornography or sexually explicit content, animal abuse, drug abuse, bomb making, graphic or gratuitous violence, accidents, dead bodies, or speech which attacks or demeans a group based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, and sexual orientation/gender identity” are considered inappropriate material. 

Mr. Sedlak claims that since their video does not meet any of these requirements, its removal “is a clear-cut case of censorship!”

However, Sedlak does not think that the fault lies with YouTube alone, “Obviously, Planned Parenthood’s attack dogs flagged our video to hide the truth, and YouTube caved to their pressure,” he asserted.

Planned Parenthood has engaged in these types of organized campaigns in the past.

Most recently, the Golden Gate chapter of Planned Parenthood ran an e-mail campaign to have radio spots created by the U.S. Bishops promoting marriage taken off the air. The same radio ads were targeted in San Francisco and Seattle by the abortion provider.

American Life League’s video, “Planned Parenthood Sells Sex” can be viewed at www.allreport.blip.tv/#596865.

The titles of the Planned Parenthood videos that remain on YouTube are “Mile High”, “Safe is Sexy” and “Angel”.
