Google denies shift in policy on ads from crisis-pregnancy centers
May 02, 2014
NARAL Pro-Choice America has exaggerated its success in persuading Google to refuse ads from pregnancy-help centers, reports Joan Desmond of the National Catholic Register. “We’ve gotten Google to take down deceptive ads from anti-choice crisis-pregnancy centers!” NARAL boasted in a message to supporters this week. But dozens of ads for the centers still appear on Google searches, and executives at the internet firm deny that there has been any policy shift in their approach to crisis-pregnancy ads.
Google has explained that the decision to discontinue some ads for pregnancy-help centers was made because of the firm’s policies on accuracy in advertising.
