Pro-Abortion Politicians Urge Google to Block Women From Finding Crisis Pregnancy Centers

(Charisma News archives)

For more than two months, pro-life organizations have been under attack, facing violent threats from abortion rights activists.

Now pro-abortion politicians are coming after crisis pregnancy centers, which are designed to help women, by urging Google to eliminate access to these centers during searches on Google Maps.

New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) submitted a letter to Google on June 28, criticizing them for allowing abortion inquiries to include results for crisis pregnancy centers.

In the letter James alleges that CPCs are included in Google Maps search results for abortion and that the facilities only focus on discouraging women from having an abortion.

"CPCs exist solely to intercept and dissuade pregnant people from making fully informed decisions about their healthcare such as the choice to obtain an abortion," the letter reads.

Sen. Mark R. Warner (D-VA) and Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-MI) led a group of Democratic senators in pushing Sundar Pichai, CEO of Alphabet Inc. and its subsidiary Google, to take action and censor pro-life clinics from "Google search results, ads, and Maps."

The senators sent a letter to Pichai on June 17, claiming that 37% of Google Maps results and 11% of Google search results for "abortion clinic near me" and "abortion pill" were for pro-life women's clinics in "trigger law" states.

In the letter, CPCs are referred to as "anti-abortion fake clinics."

The lawmakers also assert that their data was provided by the Center for Countering Digital Hate, which the letter describes as "a U.S.-based nonprofit that fights online hate and misinformation."

During a recent press conference, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) called pregnancy centers deceptive and implored federal and state governments to take action against them.

"These are deceptive outfits that front for groups that are trying to harass or otherwise frighten people who are pregnant to keep them from seeking an abortion, and they do so under the cover of pretending to offer abortion services," Warren claimed during the press conference.

But pro-life advocates say these politicians are the ones misleading women.
