(LifeSiteNews) – Google-owned video giant YouTube has censored three episodes of the Ruth Institute’s podcast detailing the link between abortion and breast cancer, in line with its recently-announed plans to crack down on so-called abortion “misionformation.”

The Ruth Institute announced July 28 that YouTube had removed organization president Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse’s interview with biologist Dr. Joel Brind, and two interviews with breast cancer surgeon Dr. Angela Lanfranchi, claiming they violated the platform’s “medical misinformation policy barring “content about abortion that contradicts expert consensus from local health authorities or the World Health Organization (WHO) and poses a serious risk of bodily harm or death.”

Specifically, YouTube removed episodes 54, 101, and 104 of The Dr. J Show, all of which are still available on Rumble.

“In my interview, Dr. Brind described the 2003 National Cancer Institute meeting that is sometimes regarded as the definitive denial of any abortion breast cancer connection,” Morse explained. “That meeting systematically excluded anyone who disagreed with the pre-determined ‘consensus.’ No one with competing views was allowed to present a paper or even ask a question from the floor.”

“YouTube did not censor our opinion: they censored science,” she continued. “By their conduct, they proved the point of all three interviews: the claim that abortion is perfectly safe cannot be defended scientifically. Post-Roe censorship is on full display.”

“WHO is a long-time supporter of abortion,” Morse noted. “They even endorsed China’s notorious One Child policy, which resulted in millions of forced abortions. For YouTube to put WHO, which many view as an adjunct of Beijing, in charge of censorship is both repulsive and absurd. It might as well put censorship of pro-life views in the hands of the International Planned Parenthood Federation or the National Abortion Rights Action League.”

YouTube announced on July 21 that it would begin to “remove content that provides instructions for unsafe abortion methods or promotes false claims about abortion safety under our medical misinformation policies,” as determined by “published guidance from health authorities,” which pro-lifers expected would be used as a pretext to censor pro-life efforts to educate the public about the risks of “safe” abortions by taking the politically- or ideologically-motivated determinations of Democrat health officials as medically authoritative.

New York Democrat Gov. Kathy Hochul has praised YouTube’s decision as an “important first step,” and Democrats in Congress have called on Google to censor crisis pregnancy centers as well, which offer women free assistance with pregnancy care as well as adoption and parenting options.

Regarding the factual dispute over the Ruth interviews, “as of 2014, at least 28 epidemiological studies worldwide show a positive ABC link, with 21 pointing to a statistically significant risk,” LifeSiteNews has found.

“Two out of the three major meta-analyses on the subject support the existence of the ABC link. The most recent of these in 2013 demonstrated the ‘dose effect,’ an important indicator of causal relationship. A 2007 multi-national study concluded that abortion was the best predictor of breast cancer out of seven factors studied in eight countries (England and Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, the Irish Republic, Sweden, the Czech Republic, Finland, and Denmark).”
