YouTube has permanently banned the popular pro-life news outlet, LifeSiteNews, for alleged misinformation about COVID-19

The news site, which has around 314,000 subscribers has already been banned on twitter after calling a Canadian transgender activist who is biologically male, a male.

Breitbart reports: LifeSiteNews editor-in-chief John-Henry Westen told the Catholic News Agency (CNA) that YouTube did not provide “a specific reason for the deletion of the account” and there was no way to appeal the decision.

“Our best guess is that the channel was taken down for our frank and factual discussion of the controversy around abortion-tainted medicines and vaccines,” Westen said. “The origins of these vaccines and their association with abortion is acknowledged by the vast majority of scientists.”

“Prior strikes were given for speaking the truth about COVID [coronavirus] lockdowns and the presence of aborted fetal cells in the vaccines,” he said.

Billing itself as the “#1 pro-life news website,” LifeSiteNews was founded in 1997 as a non-profit online news service.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson said on February 11 that the banning of LifeSiteNews was the latest move in “the most sweeping mass censorship campaign in the history of this country.”

Why did Google pull a pro-life website off YouTube? Carlson asked. “Simple. Google supports abortion. A lot of big corporations do.”

The Italian Catholic journal Il Timone called YouTube’s decision to ban LifeSiteNews a worrisome example of “a real campaign of censorship and blackout by internet giants” targeting conservatives and, in particular, pro-life voices.

The cancelling of LifeSiteNews is an especially “sensational example” of this campaign, Il Timone said, precisely because the pro-life site is so well established and “scores a huge number of visits every day from all over the world.”

In its February 13 report, CNA said that Google, YouTube’s parent company, later declared it had banned LifeSiteNews for violating its coronavirus misinformation policy, including “content that promotes prevention methods that contradict local health authorities or WHO.”

In December, YouTube deleted a LifeSiteNews video in which a Canadian pathologist, Dr. Roger Hodkinson, protested the “unfounded public hysteria” surrounding the coronavirus.

Dr. Hodkinson has claimed that coronavirus is “the greatest hoax ever perpetrated” and “just another bad flu.”

In the wake of YouTube’s decision, LifeSiteNews has produced a compilation of the videos responsible for the banning, so that viewers can judge for themselves whether the material violated standards of decency, ethics, and truth-telling.

Dr. Edward Furton, an ethicist at the National Catholic Bioethics Center, denounced YouTube’s decision to remove LifeSiteNews.

“The National Catholic Bioethics Center condemns the arbitrary decision of YouTube to censor content simply because they find it disagreeable or in opposition to their own political views,” Furton said.

“YouTube is not staffed by scientists, but by engineers and technicians who understand little to nothing about scientific matters,” he said. “Far worse, they favor a liberal ideology that supports abortion not only here at home but throughout the world. They believe that there is a universal right to kill the unborn. Such a view revokes their claim to moral superiority over others.”

Furton went on to underscore the dangers of Big Tech censorship to a democratic political system.

“Censorship by big tech is one of the greatest threats to the principles of democracy that we have seen in decades. This is done solely for the purpose of controlling information and preventing the free discussion of ideas among their fellow citizens,” he told CNA. “Unfortunately, this will become increasingly common until our political leaders gather up the courage to enact legislation that will protect the free expression of ideas.”

Twitter had already banned LifeSiteNews for its reporting on a Canadian transgender activist who is biologically male but identifies as a woman.

“Just like when we were barred from Twitter for calling a biological male a male, we will continue to speak the truth and will not give in to the threats of Big Tech and the censors who wish to remove inconvenient truths form the public square,” Westen said.

Google’s misinformation policy also bars content that disputes health authorities’ guidance on the effectiveness of “physical distancing or self-isolation measures to reduce transmission of COVID-19.”


  1. Their intention was always to entrap people on the web and in their net for total control Just like a spider. Charlotte’s Web. Total mind control. And they aren’t nice, they’re not democratic they don’t believe in free will or even freedom. Just Compliance and Obedience by deceiving people into thinking that’s freedom.

  2. Its a bad sign when Christianity has the catholic babylonian church appearing to represent us. To non Christians, when they walk into a den of idoltary and pagan ritual infested catholic church, they get turned off on Christianity and often think all Christians are ridiculous. Most dont realize true Christianity is about the simple things, loving God YHVH and thy neighbour, giving out the simple respect you hope to receive in return. Doing charity, and realizing its greater to give then receive, and the simple gestures of kindness we all realize are righteous. Im happy the catholic church is at least pro life minus all the human sacrifices the pope and priests do……they maintain just enough of a Christian front to be able to severly hurt it from within.

  3. So where’s the Pope’s voice? Any idea No conment from God’s Steward? Hmmm?
    “They do it in part for power: to ensure nobody but they can control the flow of information. They do it partly for ideology and out of hubris: the belief that their worldview is so indisputably right that all dissent is inherently dangerous ‘disinformation”Says Greenwald which sums up the “infallibles” silence totalitarianly.
