Anti-abortion rights group buying Google ad space to misdirect women who search ‘abortion’
An American pro-life group has a serious problem with the way search engines work. Their problem, it seems, is that when a woman searches for “abortion” in Google, she is generally directed to ways in which she can obtain an abortion.
Online For Life, a self-described “non-profit outreach group,” has found a way to change that. The group is buying Google ad space in the hopes of misdirecting women looking for information on abortions.
According to Life News, the group wants to go after the over six million results that abortion-related searches bring up in Google by buying ad space “at the top of some of these searches,” and directing women to “clinics that offer a free ultrasound and pro-life counseling.”
According to Life Site, Online For Life is “expanding into new markets” and “increasing their ad-buys to make it possible to save the next generation of unborn children from abortion.” The site also reported that Online for Life’s technology has “already saved forty babies.”
