These Attorneys General just slammed YouTube for one shocking disclaimer on pro-life videos

Big Tech continues its march to shut down pro-life voices.

The censorship, shadow banning, and “false information disclaimers” are getting worse by the day.

But now these Attorneys General just slammed YouTube for one shocking disclaimer on pro-life videos.

A group of state attorneys general have demanded that YouTube remove a “misleading” context disclaimer on a video posted by a pro-life group.

Demanding Big Tech stop its assault on truth

The video in question, posted by Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), warns about the very real dangers of chemical abortions. 

In a letter sent to Neal Mohan, CEO of YouTube, which is owned by Google, Iowa Attorney General Brenna Bird, joined by 15 of her GOP colleagues, criticized the Big Tech platform for adding “objectively untruthful” context notes to some pro-life videos. 

They also demanded the company immediately remove or correct a misleading “information panel” attached to the ADF video. 

The ADF video is of a woman “describing her excruciating experience of inducing a chemical abortion at home alone, without a doctor or nurse present.”

The letter says, “Your bias against pro-life and pro-woman messages is un-American; inconsistent with the liberties protected by the First Amendment; and, in this case, illegal. It must stop.”  

YouTube’s “context” note claims that “abortion is a procedure to end a pregnancy. It uses medicine or surgery to remove the embryo or fetus and placenta from the uterus. The procedure is done by a licensed healthcare professional.”

The AGs correctly point out in their letter that the last sentence of YouTube’s notice is “both false and misleading.”

“It suggests that chemical abortions are performed by trained professionals. They are not. Although surgical abortions are still typically ‘done by a licensed healthcare professional,’ under current FDA protocols chemical abortions are ‘done by’ pregnant women themselves,” the AGs wrote. 

Women deserve to know the truth

Attorney General Bird told Fox News Digital in a statement, “Women deserve to know the truth. While brave women share their testimonies of suffering from abortion drugs at home with no doctor, YouTube is denying the reality. YouTube’s campaign misrepresents chemical abortions, targets pro-life messages, and puts real lives in danger.” 

And Attorney General Steve Marshall of Alabama, another letter signer, told Fox News Digital, “This is the latest troubling instance of Big Tech targeting of conservative viewpoints. Worse still though, YouTube is doing so by spreading false and dangerous statements.”

The letter also references the case that the U.S. Supreme Court will soon hear, FDA v. Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine

The case challenges access to the abortion pill and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s regulatory approval process. 

The FDA has made several moves attempting to make it easier to access and use the chemical abortion pill mifepristone since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in its Dobbs Decision. 

The letter from the Attorneys General points out that before 2016, the FDA required both chemical abortion drugs, mifepristone and misoprostol, to be prescribed and administered only by physicians and only in a healthcare setting.

These requirements were designed to help mitigate the very serious risks these drugs pose to women. 

The AGs also noted that the FDA now allows women to receive those drugs from non-physicians through the mail and to self-administer them, without ever seeing a physician or other healthcare professional in person.

“Chemical abortion is the most common abortion method in the country, and women deserve to know the truth about these high-risk drugs that send, according to the FDA’s own label, roughly one in 25 women who take them to the emergency room,” the AGs wrote.

“By asserting that chemical abortions are performed by licensed healthcare professionals, YouTube lies to our constituents and the rest of the American public. That lie is especially concerning because it inaccurately portrays a fact central to a current Supreme Court case,” the letter continues.
