YouTube Caves: Bloggers seal the win!

Victory for the Culture of Life!

After numerous articles and pressure from Catholic and online media, Google-sponsored YouTube cited a “technical malfunction” as the reason American Life League’s pro-life video was censored by YouTube staff."

"Once word got out that YouTube had allowed the Planned Parenthood ads our report was based on to remain on their site, while at the same time censoring our report, a flurry of e-mails, blog posts, and complaints from the pro-life community pressured YouTube into reversing their decision," said Jim Sedlak, vice president of American Life League.

The original notification e-mail sent to American Life League by 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."

Three days later, American Life League received a second e-mail that said:"This email is to inform you that a video was recently removed from your account due to a technical malfunction. The issue has since been remedied and we appologize (sic) for any inconvenience or distress this may have caused. The following video(s) have been reinstated and your account has not been penalized."

I checked the petition today and 144 people signed it, making complaints against You Tube for its double standard of banning the ALL video and keeping the PP video of the same thing.

Great job, everyone! This just proves that there is power in the truth and power when we unite our voices as one against the culture of death. It is when we sit back in apathy and do nothing that the deception of the culture of death prevails. Keep up the fabulous work -- we are winnning this war!
