YouTube bans student group's video showing abuse at Planned Parenthood, Group protests politically motivated censorship
The video shows a Planned Parenthood clinic in Birmingham offering to "bend the rules" of Alabama's parental consent and mandatory reporting laws in order to cover up statutory rape with a secret abortion, and has opened an investigation by the state Attorney General's Office into the nation's largest abortion provider.

YouTube offered no prior warning or specific explanation for removing the video, which contains no apparent violations of YouTube's "community guidelines." After remaining up for ten days, the video had several thousand views and had been linked to by many news organizations. YouTube has previously censored Live Action videos, and the latest removal casts further doubt on the video-sharing site's professed regard for free speech and political neutrality.

Lila Rose, 20-year-old president of Live Action, says YouTube should not side with Planned Parenthood, especially in light of its incriminating behavior. "It is an outrage for YouTube to arbitrarily censor a video that has sparked a state investigation and national concern," said Rose. "The people of Alabama and the public at large have a right to know how Planned Parenthood really treats vulnerable young girls."
