Amid criticism from abortion advocates, Instagram allegedly removes LaBrant Family’s pro-life video

LaBrant family

YouTube stars The LaBrant Family include parents Cole and Savannah and their young children. They have more than 34 million subscribers on their YouTube Fan Page, which is filled with cute videos featuring their children. The family also has a separate YouTube channel that features more serious content including ultrasounds of their babies and a documentary about childhood cancer. But their most recent video shared on this channel has earned them some remarkable feedback — including harsh criticisms.

The Abortion documentary

The pro-life documentary, titled simply Abortion, features clips from Live Action’s Baby Olivia video as well as interviews with former abortionists Dr. Anthony Levatino and Dr. Kathi Aultman, and Embrace Grace founder and president Amy Ford. The video, which has accumulated over two million views so far, also discusses how Cole’s grandmother chose life for his mother when she was just 18 — and how his own mother was pressured to abort her baby at age 16.

Cole and Savannah also spoke with women who considered abortion. Shanese told them how shocked she was to learn she was pregnant, and that while looking up abortion on her phone in her car, her eyes were so filled with tears that she couldn’t read the screen. She ended up finding Embrace Grace, which offered her love, hope, and support.

 

 

“The day when I was in the car and I felt hopeless. And when God said, ‘Trust me,’ He had already had Embrace Grace lined up. He’s so good. You know they had baby showers for us. And it was beautiful because it was gifts and all these things… my son didn’t need anything. God took care of me completely. God was just providing. He was answering the prayer that He said He was gonna do that night in the car when I felt by myself. And he’s been doing it ever since.”

Shanese used Embrace Grace’s support that she could have her baby and her dreams to start her own business — Bomb Moms.

The couple also spoke with a mother who had been homeless and found a church that referred her to Embrace Grace to help her while she was pregnant. Toward the end of the video, the couple is seen throwing a baby shower for a young woman in need.

The entire theme of the video is about learning to be pro-love, to withhold judgment, and to actively help women and babies. For some reason, abortion advocates have a problem with this.

Pro-abortion attacks

The positive, life-affirming, and encouraging video shared touching stories alongside the truth of what abortion does: it kills an innocent human being. And because it is so positive, abortion enthusiasts are attacking the LaBrants.

YouTuber Jaclyn Glenn called the family “disgusting” and claimed, “The LaBrant family just ended their career by making an abortion documentary and they deserve the backlash they’re getting for the horrific things they said.”

@TaraBartch said on Instagram, “Cole and Savannah should be so ashamed. I’m embarrassed to have ever supported them.”

Another viewer criticized the couple for speaking out against abortion saying, “Am truly disgusted by the documentary made by the Labrant Family.”

Targeting children

Some critics acted as if the problem they had with the video was that it was on a family-focused channel. One viewer wrote, “cole labrant mansplaining to me, on his FAMILY channel about how I shouldn’t get an abortion is exactly why i protect women’s rights to choose.”

Glenn made similar comments in her own YouTube video about how The LaBrant Family is supposed to be content for children, and therefore they shouldn’t be discussing abortion.

But the LaBrant Family’s video isn’t graphic and can be viewed by most children. Yet Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion organizations have perfected their targeting and grooming of children with inappropriate content regarding sex and abortion in order to create future clients. Planned Parenthood wants children in Kindergarten to be taught its graphic version of sex ed. Shout Your Abortion even made a pro-abortion video of women talking to children about abortion to try and convince them that abortion is good.

Pro-abortion criticism of the LaBrants is likely less rooted in a concern for children and more in a concern for attacking the pro-life view — a view that is very much family-friendly.

Instagram allegedly removes video

Along with the attacks on the LaBrants allegedly came calls to have the video removed. The family claims that Instagram did remove it from the platform. “Instagram did take our feed post down,” said Cole. “This is ok, fortunately, we have talked with our team at YouTube and they’re keeping the documentary up there, which is most important.”

However, Cole also stated that YouTube won’t share the video further.

“At this point,” he said, “we’ll leave the message in God’s hands and trust that whoever is supposed to watch it, will watch it. You guys have supported this so much and we’re so thankful. If you feel [led], please share the documentary with people you know.”
