SAN BRUNO, Calif. — YouTube will begin removing deceptive videos about abortion in response to lies being spread about the procedure being banned or restricted in much of the US

The move announced Thursday by Google’s video site comes about a month after the US Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, the case that had protected the legality of abortion in the country for nearly 50 years.

YouTube said the crackdown will remove content promoting unsafe home abortions, as well as misinformation about the safety of undergoing the procedure at clinics in states where it remains legal.

According to YouTube, the purge of misleading abortion videos will increase in the coming weeks.

The Supreme Court’s reversal of Roe v. Wade has increased pressure on tech companies to take steps so that their devices and digital services cannot be used to shadow women seeking abortions or steer them in directions that could threaten their health .

Earlier this month, Google announced it was automatically removing information about users visiting abortion clinics or other places that could cause legal trouble in light of the Supreme Court ruling.

But some members of Congress have pressured Google to limit the appearance of anti-abortion maternity centers in the results of its influential search engine — a move 17 Republican attorneys general warned on Thursday would expose the company to potential legal ramifications.
