YouTube to remove videos carrying misinformation about abortion

 July 22, 2022  

In an effort to combat inaccurate information about the medical procedure, YouTube announced on Thursday (local time) that it will begin deleting videos that make false claims about abortion.

The decision was made at a time when women are looking for trustworthy pregnancy-related information online as the right to an abortion has been restricted in many parts of the United States.

Elena Hernandez, a representative for YouTube, was quoted by CNN as saying, “We feel it’s vital to connect people to content from credible sources about health topics, and we regularly examine our policies and products as real-world events develop.”
