Abortion: YouTube removes misinformation videos




YouTube has said it would remove content promoting unsafe abortions.

Videos including false claims about abortion safety will be included in its misinformation policies, the company tweeted.

YouTube said it will provide factual health information in information panels on termination videos and search results.

US gender justice group UltraViolet says this will help protect public health but tech firms must do more.

Shaunna Thomas, its co-founder and executive director, said immediate action is needed to prevent a "disinformation epidemic" and provide pregnant people with reliable reproductive health information.

She said demand for this has become even more urgent after the reversal of Roe v Wade.

YouTube said its removal of content advising on and promoting unsafe abortion methods had begun on Thursday and would be "ramping up over the next few weeks".
