YouTube To Remove Abortion Videos Spreading ‘False Claims’
YouTube has announced that it will begin removing videos that promote ways to perform unsafe abortions and that feature false claims about abortion safety.
“Like all of our policies on health/medical topics, we rely on published guidance from health authorities,” the Google-owned video streaming platform said on Twitter.
“We prioritize connecting people to content from authoritative sources on health topics, and we continuously review our policies [and] products as real world events unfold.”
The platform will also launch an information panel to provide users with “context and information from local and global health authorities under abortion-related videos and above relevant search results.”
