“Our goal is for Google to stop being complicit”
Google employees are now being lobbied by pro-aborts to stifle the search results for pro-life organizations.
According to Business Insider, pro-choicers from the groups UltraViolet and Credo, both connected to Planned Parenthood, were riding bicycles behind Google’s shuttle buses on Tuesday with signs that read, “Searching for abortion care? Google will send you to fake, anti-abortion clinics.”
Karin Roland, chief campaigns officer for UltraViolet, claims to have been lobbying Google for four years to have what she calls “fake clinics” stricken from Google search results and Google Maps.
“Women are seeking medical information, and Google is sending them to clinics that not only don’t actually provide what they claim to — but are actively trying to trick and mislead women,” Roland said.
Roland asserted that those clinics typically set up shop down the street from abortion mills and deliberately choose names like “Choices” and “Women’s Health Centers” to confuse women. All of this confusion, says Roland, just risks the woman delaying her abortion.
“Our goal with the campaign is for Google to stop being complicit with these clinics, stop running fake abortion clinic ads,” Roland said.
As noted by Jay Hobbs at the Washington Examiner, abortion activists have been unsuccessful in finding “any real-life woman claiming she’s been mistreated, tricked, or misled in any way by a pregnancy help center.” In fact, the Christian Post says that those clinics Rolands wishes to keep from the public eye actually have a near 99% client satisfaction rate.
Perhaps the reason that Rolands wishes to close them is not so women could be better off, but because those clinics suck the abortion mills of their revenues. This rhetoric against the pregnancy centers sets a dangerous precedent, and it came to a head in California this year when the state demanded that California pregnancy centers must advertise free taxpayer-funded abortions to their clients. Fortunately, it looks like the U.S. Supreme Court will overturn the law.
