YouTube removes unsafe abortion content

In these hours theYouTube app announced it will remove “instructions for unsafe abortion methods” or content that “promotes false claims about abortion safety under our medical misinformation policies.” And that’s not all. The platform will also add an information panel related videos, so we can offer users safe content from the National Library of Medicine.

YouTube: App announces the removal of unsafe abortion content

Just yesterday, the YouTube App announced that it will remove all abortion content from the platform that is not safe for users. “Like all our policies on health / medical issues, we rely on the guidelines published by the health authorities – announces the platform -. We prioritize connecting people to content from authoritative sources on health-related topics and continually review our policies and products as real-world events unfold. ” In this way the App reconnects to yours disinformation policieswhich prohibit the “promotion of alternative abortion methods instead of chemical or surgical methods deemed safe by health authorities”.

On the other hand, in the past, numerous legislators have asked Google to limit search results and maps that direct women intending to terminate pregnancy to “fake” clinics, where doctors try to dissuade them. In any case, the YouTube App now seems to have solved another problem, but not this one. The platform will remove the content they promote “self-managed” abortions with herbs such as mugwort and mint, a practice that many herbalists have claimed is unreliable and can cause serious health problems. These videos were also shared on TikTok, where they became extremely popular. Reason YouTube chose to delete them.
