exposÃ© videos on Planned Parenthood was evicted from their for its âinappropriate nature.â Strangely enough, the ad that the ALL was criticizing remains on YouTube..- On Monday morning, American Life League (ALL) was informed by YouTube that one of its
The banned report explains how a Planned Parenthood commercial helps encourage recreational sex, which ALLâs Michael Hichborn told CNA, âhelps their bottom lineâ.
âAll we did in our video report was show a couple of clips from Planned Parenthoodâs âMile Highâ ad and illustrate how it was nothing more than a part of Planned Parenthoodâs effort to encourage recreational sex,â said Jim Sedlak, vice president of American Life League. âIf there was anything inappropriate in our report, it came from Planned Parenthoodâs ad, and yet their ad remains while ours is removed.â
The "Mile Highâ 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, âOn behalf of Planned Parenthood airlines you are now free to make sweet, sweet love.â
The e-mail sent to American Life League said, âAfter being flagged by members of the YouTube community and reviewed by YouTube staff, the video below has been removed due to its inappropriate nature.â
âOur video didnât contain anything even remotely close to YouTubeâs guidelines for inappropriate material,â said Sedlak.
According to YouTubeâs Community Guidelines, videos that contain âpornography 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 identityâ are considered inappropriate material.
Mr. Sedlak claims that since their video does not meet any of these requirements, its removal âis a clear-cut case of censorship!â
However, Sedlak does not think that the fault lies with YouTube alone, âObviously, Planned Parenthoodâs attack dogs flagged our video to hide the truth, and YouTube caved to their pressure,â 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 Leagueâs video, âPlanned Parenthood Sells Sexâ can be viewed at www.allreport.blip.tv/#596865.
The titles of the Planned Parenthood videos that remain on YouTube are âMile Highâ, âSafe is Sexyâ and âAngelâ.
