YouTube removed the latest video exposing Planned Parenthood directors laughing about dismembering fully formed babies hours after it was published, a move pro-life activists say is a cave to censorship pressure from the abortion industry.

The most recent video footage, which showed The Center for Medical Progress President David Daleiden interviewing Planned Parenthood abortionists and portions of a panel discussion at a National Abortion Federation conference, was widely shared Thursday. After sparking numerous horrified reactions across social media, YouTube took the video down around 7 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.

The footage shows abortionists explicitly referring to their work as "violence," and "killing," complaining about how hard it is to rip apart with forceps the "tough little object" known as the baby, and bemoaning that they do not have many forums where they can share their stories about "heads that get stuck that we can't get out."

Pro-life advocates believe YouTube's censorship is a craven attempt to suppress the truth.

Culture of Life Africa founder Obianuju Eckeocha mused on Twitter in response to the censorship: "Have [you] ever wondered how the Nazis' crimes committed against humanity weren't stopped sooner? YouTube shows us exactly how that's possible."
