Censors Video Criticizing Planned Parenthood TV Ad For Containing 'Inappropriate' Content While Original PP:GG Content Remains on YouTube

WASHINGTON, Feb. 13 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "It is outrageous that YouTube would black-out our video warning the public about a Planned Parenthood sex video while it continues to carry the original Planned Parenthood video," said Jim Sedlak, vice president of American Life League.

The "inappropriate nature" cited by YouTube management is the very same centerpiece of a publicly aired Planned Parenthood television advertising campaign which is still being hosted by YouTube as of Monday afternoon and has not been flagged.

"Such duplicitous acts cannot go unchallenged. We've let them know we will not be silent. We have already filed a complaint with the online service and will do whatever we can to see that this discriminatory action is overturned by YouTube," said Judie Brown, President of American Life League.

"Ironically, if there was anything inappropriate in our report it came from Planned Parenthood's ads. Yet, their video remains while ours is removed," stated Sedlak.

Sedlak continued, "Our concern is that Planned Parenthood's attack dogs flagged our video to hide the truth, and then YouTube caved to pressure. Sadly, at a time when many young people are embracing YouTube as a place where they can get the truth, it seems YouTube has its own bias and is not afraid to censor the truth about Planned Parenthood."

The Planned Parenthood campaigns are criticized by many parents as a faulty argument that only encourages promiscuity and unhealthy relationships that often times lead to the tragedy of an abortion.

The e-mail sent to American Life League by Google-sponsored YouTube reads, "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."

"I guess you can't criticize Planned Parenthood on YouTube," Sedlak concluded.
