Google, under pressure from abortion lobby, removes ads for pregnancy-help centers

April 29, 2014

Google has removed web advertisements from several pregnancy-help centers, acting in response to complaints from NARAL Pro-Choice America that the ads were deceptive.

NARAL argued that the ads, reaching out to women concerned about pregnancy, were misleading because the pregnancy-help centers did not offer abortion services. Google explained that ads are discontinued if they are found to violate the company’s standards for “relevance, clarity, and accuracy.”

    And why would the thought police confine themselves to Britain when the world wide web needs them so desperately?

    As difficult as it will be, I will no longer be using Google services. Stating that pregnancy-help centers that do not provide abortions are deceptive is ridiculous and far as I'm concerned NARAL is group being deceptive. This will probably take a while and if anyone has any suggestions for an alternate search engine/email service I would appreciate it. Additional, I will be informing Google about this decision. Maybe if enough people and companies do this Google will reverse their decision.
