Youtube has banned yet another pro-life video. Citizens for a Pro-Life Society created a 5 minute video showing clips of the funeral rites for 23 victims of abortion. The aborted babies were improperly disposed of in a dumpster behind Albert Hodari’s abortion clinic in Michigan.

YouTube indicated that the video was removed for violating the site’s prohibition against images “intended to be shocking, sensational or disrespectful.”
According to the site’s guidelines: “if a video is particularly graphic or disturbing, it should be balanced with additional educational or documentary context and information.”
CPLS argues that the images of the children’s’ remains were given appropriate and respectful context, and were not intended to shock, saying the video was “obviously crafted to teach, to provoke thought, to provide a moral lesson.”
The group said it was considering legal action against YouTube.
“I feel strongly that we must call You Tube to responsibility,” said CPLS director Monica Migliorino Miller. “It’s obvious that pro-lifers are consistently discriminated against on this website.”
