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.”
This is the video that TikTok says violated their “Community Guidelines” and banned us for.

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.
