Safe2Choose is an organization that is committed to providing safe abortion care and accurate information on abortion using recent, unbiased scientific studies. Their mission "is to promote safe abortion by facilitating access to abortion pills."
In January of 2018, the Safe2Choose YouTube account was shut down based on " repeated or severe violations of community standards." It was stated that the account "encourages or promotes violent or dangerous acts that have an inherent risk of serious physical harm or death." (*)
Safe2Choose has since attempted and failed appealing the account's shut down.
The alleged video that triggered the account suspension is still allowed for viewing on both Facebook and Twitter. (watch here)
Along with Safe2Choose's account suspension, several other pro-choice organizations including Women on Web, Women on Waves, Colectivo de Salud Feminista, and comohecerseunaborto.com has faced YouTube's censoring on their channels as well.
Millions of women every year seek safe abortion services, and according to the World Health Organization,25 million unsafe abortions take place every year, as a result, 46,000 die and millions more are left with severe complications.* Women will be seeking abortion and information on abortion no matter what, so, why make it harder for us to get accurate information?
YouTube, please do not leave women seeking information in the dark, leaving them to turn to inaccurate, harmful information that can have life-threatening consequences. Stand with women and restore Safe2Choose's account!
