Both Google and Yelp have decided to suppress results in search engines for life-saving prenatal facilities in order to please extreme “pro-choice” abortion advocates, Democrats, and their corporate press partners.
Google and Yelp have used their censorship power to incorporate the “fake clinic” framing advocated by Democrats like Sen. Elizabeth Warren, even though nearly two-thirds of Americans support public funding for these institutes, many of which provide discounted or free pregnancy tests, ultrasound scans, and other support to women in need.
After Democrats in Congress asked Google to remove emergency pregnancy centers from search results, the Silicon Valley company said it would start labeling pro-life clinics to make it clear they do not provide abortions.
It’s disingenuous to argue this isn’t a #1stamendment violation when it’s the #government driving these choices rather than independent private firms. But since when have the #BidenAdministration & #Democrats much cared about the #Constitution? #BidensAmerica #Google #Yelp https://t.co/bowFakWTOM

Google’s response to the 21 Democrats, such as Sens. Warren, Dianne Feinstein, Richard Blumenthal, Kirsten Gillibrand, Amy Klobuchar, and Bernie Sanders, who called for censorship, read as follows: “When someone in the US searches for health care providers that provide abortions — for example, using the query ‘abortion clinics near me’ — the Local Search results box will display facilities that have been verified to provide abortions.” The availability of abortion services will be prominently displayed in search results for related inquiries.
Much to the joy of Democrats, this judgment led to Google implementing “additional layers of verification to help confirm that places classified as ‘abortion clinics’ on Google Maps and Search offer abortions.” Bloomberg and The Washington Post, two corporate media sites, both actively advocated for Google to support the radical abortion agenda of the left and then gleefully covered the Big Tech company’s shift in position.
Just last week, Yelp, a San Francisco firm that offers details and a place for clients to review enterprises, declared it would classify searches for pregnancy-related care with a “consumer notice” that asserts faith-based pregnancy crisis centers “typically provide limited medical services and may not have licensed medical professionals onsite.” When companies like Google and Yelp make censorship judgments, they are embracing and promoting a narrative produced by the foreign dark-money organization The Center for Countering Digital Hate and its biased “research.”
“It’s well-reported that crisis pregnancy centers do not offer abortion services, and it’s been established that many provide deceptive information in an attempt to steer patients seeking abortion treatment to other options,” said Noorie Malik, vice president of user operations at Yelp. “With this new consumer notice we’re aiming to further protect consumers from the potential of being misled or confused.”
Yelp and Google both offered to pay for their female workers’ travel expenses to undergo abortions soon after the news surfaced that the Supreme Court was planning to overturn Roe v. Wade. Google has a long history of censoring pro-life adverts and has now pledged to erase users’ location data if they search for or visit an abortion clinic.
