You-Tube censorship: again

Briefing and comment: Removing one video critical of pro-abortion activism without explanation, and then shame-facedly restoring it citing a 'mistake', may be an accident, but doing it twice looks like carelessness: or a deliberate campaign of censorship. For the first instance, see here.

From CFNews: has re-posted two videos in Spanish and English posted by the Catholic News Agency about the controversial abortion documentary 'The Decency Gap' that were pulled from the video-sharing site several days ago in response to pressure from abortion supporters.

The video entitled, 'The Decency Gap / Eve Reinhardt,' shows a meeting between Carlos Polo, director for Latin America of the Population Research Institute, and film maker Eve Reinhardt, who attempted to gain an interview with Carlos by hiding the true nature of the documentary.

'The Decency Gap' aims to promote the legalization of abortion in Latin America and is financed by the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), the largest abortion provider in the world, Marie Stopes International and the Center for Reproductive Rights, as well as by the abortion organization PROMSEX of Peru.

The video features the encounter that took place several weeks ago in Lima and does not violate YouTube's terms of use in any way.

Although YouTube has not given an official explanation for initially taking the video down and then re-posting it, hundreds of users expressed their support to keep the video online.

Here's the video.

Pope Leo XIII's Prayer to St Michael

Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust down to Hell Satan, and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
