A disturbing video celebrating the abortion of a young girl has gone viral on media platform TikTok, racking up over 4,000,000 views.

In the video, a young girl, joined by her friend, is seen preparing for her abortion by showing off her baby-bump and listening to upbeat music while pumping her fist.

“Abortion time! TAKE 2,” reads the text posted at the beginning of the video.

When the girls go to a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic, the video pans to a clearly upset couple. “There’s [sic] two abortion moods,” text reads, before panning to the smiling pregnant girl pumping her fist in anticipation of the abortion.

Inside a room at the Planned Parenthood clinic, the girl is shown in stirrups having an ultrasound.

While the celebration of a girl’s abortion, where a living human is killed, apparently does not break any of TikTok’s rules, pro-life content has repeatedly been censored on the platform.

For example, pro-life organization Live Action was banned outright in January from TikTok for “violating community guidelines,” before being restored post-backlash.

The video that landed the organization a temporary ban merely featured women talking about their decision to choose life over abortion, as highlighted in a Daily Wire report at the time.

“TikTok has just BANNED & permanently removed Live Action from the platform,” Live Action founder Rose said on Twitter. “My team grew the largest pro-life voice on the platform We had 21,000 followers & over a million video views This is another egregious attack on the pro-life movement by pro-abortion Big Tech.”

“TikTok has a larger active user base than: Twitter, Pinterest, Snapchat, Reddit,” she continued. “With 800 million active users. Just shy of Instagram’s 1 billion active users. It is a crucial platform to spread our life-saving message on.”

Rose concluded, “This is blatant viewpoint discrimination and an egregious attempt to silence pro-life voices. TikTok must immediately reinstate our account in full and allow all voices on the platform.”

On Thursday, Rose again spoke out about TikTok’s inconsistently implemented “community guidelines.”

“Unbelievable: A new [TikTok] video [with] 4M views shows girls cheerfully walking into Planned Parenthood & one killing her baby on camera,” she wrote via Twitter.  “It’s in violation of countless Community Guidelines against: ‘Violent content’ ‘Depictions of deaths’ ‘Dismembered humans’ & others.”

“Whoa. The girl in this TikTok is giggling hysterically as she heads in to get an abortion. She literally laughs as the ultrasound of her baby is shown,” commented pro-life advocate and Daily Caller reporter Mary Margaret Olohan.

“1. TikTok allows this but restricted Live Action? 2. Remember how ‘no one celebrates abortion?'” she added.

TikTok has a history of political censorship, as The Daily Wire has reported: “As noted by LifeSiteNews, TikTok has a history of censoring political content for reasons far more arbitrary than Twitter or Facebook, such as when it ‘temporarily suspended 17-year-old Feroza Aziz over a video discussing the Chinese government’s persecution of the country’s Uighur Muslim population.'”

“TikTok reinstated her account and claimed she had been suspended over a different video (featuring a tasteless joke about Osama bin Laden), but the incident was enough to inspire Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) to ask the Treasury Department’s Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States to review the company’s conduct,” LifeSite added.
