Google-owned YouTube banned a pro-life educational video that explained the brutal reality of abortion procedures four years after it was uploaded, claiming the video violated the platform's Community Guidelines.

In the video, which was produced by the anti-abortion organization Live Action, former abortion doctor Dr. Anthony Levatino details four different abortions, using animated drawings to convey the inhumane procedure.

Live Action founder and president Lila Rose addressed YouTube's censorship in a tweet Friday evening.

Following an appeal from the pro-life advocacy group, YouTube reinstated the video.

The Susan B. Anthony List retweeted Live Action's statement, saying "YouTube is now complicit with the Big Abortion industry."
